“Round them will be passed a cup of pure wine; [it is] White, delicious to the drinkers; Free from headiness; nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom.” [Surah Al-Saaffaat 37:45-47]

“The description of Paradise which the righteous have been promised is that in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine delicious to those who drink; and rivers of clarified honey (clear and pure) therein for them is every kind of fruit; and forgiveness from their Lord. (Are these) like those who shall dwell for ever in the Fire, and be given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels?” [Surah Muhammad 47:15]

“in them [both will be fruits, date palms and pomegranates” [Surah Al-Rahmaan 55:68]

“And with fruits, any that they may select; And the flesh of fowls that they desire” [Surah Al-Waaqi’ah 56:20-21]

“And those on the Right Hand – who will be those on the Right Hand? [They will be] among
thornless lote-trees, Among Talh trees with fruits piled one above another, In shade long extended, By water flowing constantly, And fruit in plenty.” [Surah Al-Waaqi’ah 56:27-32]

“And they will be given to drink there a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabil (ginger)” [Surah Al-Insaan 76:17]

Narrated by Thawbaan (may Allah be pleased with him): “......The Jewish (Rabbi) said: Where would people be on the Day when the earth would change into another earth and the heavens (would change into other heavens)? The Messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “They would be in darkness beside the Bridge.” He again said: Who among people would be the first to cross (this bridge)? He said: “They would be the poor among the Muhaajiroon.” The Jew said: What would constitute their welcoming meal when they enter Paradise? He replied: “The caudate lobe of the liver of the whale.” He said. What would be their food after this? He said: “A bull which was feeding in the different corners of Paradise will be slaughtered for them.” He said: What would be their drink? He said: “They would be given drink from the fountain which is named Salsabeel.”
[Muslim No 315]

‘Utbah ibn ‘Abd Al-Sulami (may Allah be pleased with him) said: A Bedouin came to the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and asked him about al-Hawd (the cistern). He mentioned Paradise, then the Bedouin asked him: Is there fruits there? He said: “Yes, and there is a tree called Tooba.” The Bedouin asked: What tree of this world does it resemble? He said: “It does not resemble any tree of your land, have you been to Ash-Shaam?” He said: No. He said: “It resembles a tree in Ash-Shaam called Al-Jawzah (walnut tree) which grows on one trunk then spreads its branches higher up.” The Bedouin asked: How big is its trunk? He said: “If one of the camels of your people was to go around it, it would not complete one circuit before its neck broke of old age and exhaustion.” The Bedouin asked: Are there grapes? He said: “Yes.” He asked: How big is a bunch? He said: “The distance a crow could fly without stopping in a month.” He asked: How big is one grape? He said: “Did your father ever slaughter a huge ewe from his flock?” He said: Yes. He said: “And does he skin it and give the hide to your mother, and say, Make us a bucket out of this?” He said: Yes. So, the Bedouin asked: Is one grape big enough to satisfy me and my family? He said: “Yes, and the whole of your tribe.“ [Ahmad 17642 , At-Tabaraanee 312].

‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “The date palms of Paradise’s trunks are made of green emeralds, the bases of their leaves are of pure gold. Their branches will be [used] as clothing for the people of Paradise, from them their clothings and attire are made. Their fruits are the size of jars (or buckets); whiter than milk, sweeter than honey and softer than butter, without stones [or seeds]“ [Mustadrak Al-Haakim 3776]


The Food and Drink of the People of Jahannam

“They will be given drink from a boiling spring; No food will they have except Daree’ (a Thorny and a dry tree). It neither nourishes nor removes hunger”[Surah Al-Ghaashiyah 88:5-7]

“..[they] will be given to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels [to pieces]” (47:15)

“Indeed the tree of Zaquum will be the food of the sinners. Like boiling oil, it will boil in the belies, like the boiling of scalding water. It will be said : Drag, sieze him and drag him into the midst of the blazing fire. Then pour upon his head the torment of boiling water. Taste! You were pretending to be the Mighty the Generous” [Surah Al-Dukhaan 44:43-49]

“Yea, such! – Then shall they taste it – a boiling fluid and a fluid dark, murky, intensely cold
[ghassaaq]! And other penalties of a similar kind – to match them!” [Surah Al-Ghaashiyah 38:57-58]

“Is that [Paradise] a better entertainment or the tree of Zaqqum? For
We have truly made it [as] a trial for the wrongdoers. For it is a tree that springs out of the
bottom of Hellfire, The shoots of its fruit-stalks is as it were the heads of devils; And indeed, they will eat from it and fill with it their bellies. Then on top of that they will be given to drink a mixture made of boiling water. Then, shall their return be to the blazing Fire of Hell”. (Surah Al-Saaffaat 37:62-68)

Muslim reports from Jaabir that the
Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Anyone who drinks intoxicants will be made to drink the mud of khabaal”. They
asked, “O Messenger of Allaah, what is the mud of khabaal?” He said, “The sweat of the people of Hell”,
or “the juice of the people of Hell”
