(not my veggie platter – alas, it does not look this good. But it was tasty. Cucumbers+carrots+green peppers+tomatoes+ranch dressing= love)
I’d like to note that whenever Allah (swt) refers to the foods of paradise, He inevitably says that we will have fruit to enjoy. Not bread, or pastries or noodles or big ol slabs of meat. No, we shall enjoy fruit. Shouldn’t that tell us something about what is best for us here in this life?
And convey good news to those who believe and do good deeds, that they shall have gardens in which rivers flow; whenever they shall be given a portion of the fruit thereof, they shall say: This is what was given to us before; and they shall be given the like of it, and they shall have pure mates in them, and in them, they shall abide. (2:25)
