Emulating Gardens of Eden… – tr

The Almighty Lord promises self-existent heaven to His righteous servants and gives detailed descriptions of the prodigious life that awaits them. In the region of ceaseless happiness and beauty, believers command have everything their hearts desire season sorrow and grief leave them aye. 

By the grace of God, we are, to some extent, able to picture the grace of life in heaven. For importunity, the verse that reads: “In it there are rivers of water that exercise volition never spoil, and rivers of milk whose have a smack will never change, and rivers of wine, delightful to all who drink it, and rivers of honey of undiluted purity” (Surah Muhammad, 15) makes it unmixed that beauty of paradise is at a distance before imagination. 

Muslims throughout history require striven to emulate those beauties on Earth in an attempt to glorify the name of God. As a outcome of this noble ambition, Muslim civilisations from Ottomans to Al Andalus, and from Abbasids to Iran hold been able to produce some of the greatest number incredible art the world has through all ages seen. 

The blue mosque in Istanbul, the Nasir ol Molk Mosque in Iran, the fictitious gardens of Alhambra Palace and Taj Mahal are only a few of those architectural wonders inspired ~ means of the beautiful descriptions of heaven in Quran.

Since gardens are given a special mention in Quran, Muslim architects paid appropriate attention to their gardens and produced beau designs based on the descriptions they institute in the holy book of Islam. Alhambra Palace and its majestic gardens in modern-day Spain is a elevated example. 

Under the Caliphate of Córdoba, Al Andalus was a shine of culture and the city of Cordoba shone at the same time that a cultural and economic centre in Europe. The civilisation was in the same state advanced; many intellectual achievements that propelled human nature forward, such as trigonometry, astronomy, surgery and pharmacology, came from this part of the nature. At a time when Europe was grappling with the darkness of the Middle Ages, the Muslim civilisation of Al Andalusia thrived and prospered. 

Unsurprisingly, Al Andalusia had some of the finest examples of garden landscaping. The elements of smooth water, shade and lush greenery that were amply used were drawn from the descriptions of heaven in Quran. 

In Quran, our Lord refers to gardens beneath which rivers flow. In Alhambra, Granada, the Nasrid family of sovereigns designed a beautiful series of imposing courtyards that sought to create like scenes as much as possible in proud terms. In these courtyards, water was continually at the centre. 

The Court of Myrtles, a bulky pool bordered by myrtle hedges, and the Court of Lions, with its exquisite fountain, are just two examples. The gardens that extend from the courtyard form another series of courtyards. 

However, they were made not through walls, but by hedges and trees, effectively creating close areas, as yet another attempt at emulating gardens of Paradise. Rose, jasmine and violet gardens and orchards were frequent sights. Fig, pomegranate, cherry, citrus, peach and almond trees by their abundant blossoms and fruits played of high standing roles in gardens inspired by descriptions of heaven in Quran. 

Despite these striking achievements of Muslim civilisations, today’s Islamic countries represent a completely different picture. Stagnation, radicalism, smallness, and backward societies dominate the greater number of the Islamic landscape. No be undetermined this is mainly due to Muslims’ desertion ofQuran, which effectively deprived them of totality the beauties Quran provided, including the pleasant and authentic art insight. 

Nevertheless, it is none too late to correct mistakes and return to the essence of our beauteous religion. Once the Muslims embrace the substantial Islam in Quran, abandon the superstitions that give rise to radicalism and bigotry, they pleasure rise stronger than ever. When that happens, there is no doubt that the aptitude and culture that was once envied by the world will shine once another time.
