In the Voice of Jannah
by Hafsa Kapadia, Jenn Fannoun, and Hana Al-Harastani
A jewel-encrusted crown for a verse recited. Chalets of crystal sparkling on the horizon for a soul that gave up sins. Tree trunks of green emerald and branches of gold for a dhikr oft-repeated. Each of your shuddering breaths, every second of discomfort you faced, and every one of your sacrifices—all have been accounted for, returned manifold with sights and rewards unimaginable. Built by your deeds and decorated by your du’as, Jannah longs to meet you.
So what would Jannah say if it could speak? This poetry anthology takes on Jannah’s voice to motivate us towards it. Inspired by the episodes of Jannah: Home at Last and descriptions from the Qur’an and Sunnah, you’ll find on each page topical poems that touch on the many wonders of Paradise, from the grandeur of your palaces to the deepest sense of peace you’ll find in its forests. Immerse yourself in these words, O hopeful soul, and find the motivation to work harder for your eternal home.
