Chapter Summary

The chapter describes the couches in Paradise and how one can move about on them in all six directions. There's another paradise more excellent and higher than it and it contains none of the delights. When one of the inhabitants of the Loftiest Heights looks down on Paradise and his face shines brightly for the people of Paradise, it's like when the moon shines upon the people of the world on the night of the full moon. Moreover, the pleasure of those who experience it is pleasure of the spirit, whereas the pleasure of those other than the people of this paradise is pleasure of their eternal bodies'. The believers visualize the delights in their minds and cause them to pass through their hearts, rejoicing in Paradise and in the pleasure that God the Sublime has prepared for them there.
