The eternal garden

“¡Oh dwellers of al-Andalus, what blessings you enjoy, water, shade, rivers and trees!

The Garden of Eternal Happiness is not to be found abroad but here in your lands: could I but choose, this place would be my choice.

Believe not that tomorrow you shall enter hell. One does not enter hell after having enjoyed Paradise!”

Ibn Jafaya (11th 12th centuries)
