Muhammad's concept of Paradise is the exact opposite to that of the
Judeo-Christian one. His Paradise is PHYSICAL and NOT SPIRITUAL; typical of the mental needs of the Arabian nomad whose lack of water, food, vegetation, shade, women and luxuries can only be reflected in an after-life type of existence to fully compensate for all of his otherwise worldly needs on Earth.
That is why Muhammad's Paradise is more like a very luxurious carnal and sensual brothel than a domain for a spiritual communion with the Almighty.
He promised his poor, illiterate, ignorant, superstitious and gullible followers' unlimited pleasures when they die in the cause of Allah and Muhammad. He promised them rewards way beyond their wildest imaginings as long as they obeyed Allah and of course by extension, himself.
The Quran and the Ahadith are replete with verses that describe Muhammad's version of Paradise:
37:40 "Fruits, Delights; they will be honored in the Gardens of Pleasure, on thrones facing one another. Round them will be passed a cup of pure white wine, delicious to the drinkers, free from ghoul (hurt), nor shall you be made mad or exhausted thereby. And with them will be Qasirat-at-Tarf (virgin females), restraining their glances (desiring none but you), with big, beautiful eyes. As if they were (sheltered) eggs, preserved."
47:15 "(Here is) a Parable of the Garden which those who fear and keep their duty are promised: in it are rivers of unpolluted water; rivers of milk which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, a delicious joy to the drinkers; and rivers of running honey pure and clear. In it there are all kinds of fruits with pardon from their Lord."
52:17 "Verily, the Muttaqun (those who fear) will be in Gardens and Delight. Enjoying the (bliss) which their Lord has provided, and their Lord saved them from the torment of the blazing Fire. 'Eat and drink with glee, because of what you used to do.' They will recline (with ease) on Throne Couches (of dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to beautiful Hur (female maidens) with big, lustrous eyes."
52:21 "Those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith, to them shall We join their offspring: Nor shall We deprive them of their works: (Yet) each individual is in pledge for his deeds. And We shall provide fruit and meat, anything they desire. There they shall pass from hand to hand a (wine) cup free of frivolity, free of all taint of vanity or cause of sin. Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them, young boy servants of their own (handsome) as well-guarded pearls. They will advance to each other, drawing near, engaging in mutual enquiry. They will say: 'We used to be afraid (of the punishment) in the midst of our families, but Allah has been good to us, and has delivered us from the torment of the Scorching Wind and Breath of Fire."
*** Even the wives and children will be joined with their husbands, fathers and brothers to watch them cavorting with their virgins, in a paradise of debauchery ***
55:46 "For him who lives in terror of his Lord are two Gardens containing delights: shade, two fountains flowing, fruits in pairs. Reclining on carpets lined with silk brocade, fruits hanging low. In them virginal females with averted glances (desiring none but you), undeflowered by men or jinn. Is the reward of goodness aught but goodness?"
55:62 "And beside this, there are two other Gardens, rich green in color from plentiful watering. In them will be two springs, gushing forth, and fruits. And beautiful companions, virgins cloistered in pavilions, undefiled by men and jinn, reclining on green cushions and rich mattresses. Which of the favors of you Lord will you both deny?"
56:8 "Those of the right hand-how happy will be those of the right hand! …Who will be honored in the Garden of Bliss;
56:13 "A multitude of those from among the first, and a few from the latter, (will be) on couch-like thrones woven with gold and precious stones. Reclining, facing each other. Round about them will (serve) boys of perpetual (freshness), of never ending bloom, with goblets, jugs, and cups (filled) with sparkling wine. No aching of the head will they receive, nor suffer any madness, nor exhaustion. And with fruits, any that they may select: and the flesh of fowls, any they may desire. And (there will be) Hur (fair females) with big eyes, lovely and pure, beautiful ones, like unto hidden pearls, well-guarded in their shells. A reward for the deeds."
56:33 "Unending, and unforbidden, exalted beds, and maidens incomparable. We have formed them in a distinctive fashion and made them virgins, loving companions matched in age, for the sake of those of the right hand." [Another translation reads:] "On couches or thrones raised high. Verily, We have created them (maidens) incomparable: We have formed their maidens as a special creation, and made them to grow a new growth. We made them virgins-pure and undefiled, lovers, matched in age."
*** "...made them to grow a new growth" means that their Hymens will be reformed after every copulation, rendering these females ETERNALLY VIRGINAL ***
76:5 "As for the righteous, they will drink a cup of wine from a spring, making it gush forth abundantly."
76:19 "And round them shall serve immortal boys of perpetual freshness, never altering in age. If you saw them, you would think they were scattered pearls."
76:21 "Upon them will be green garments of fine green silk and heavy gold brocade. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver; their Lord will slack their thirst with wine."
*** In LIFE on Earth, the followers of Muhammad are FORBIDDEN from wearing SILK or GOLD, but are allowed, AFTER DEATH***
77:41 "The righteous shall be amidst cool shades, springs, and fruits-all they desire. Eat and drink to your heart's content."
78:31 "Verily for those who follow Us, there will be a fulfillment of your desires: enclosed Gardens, grapevines, voluptuous full-breasted maidens of equal age, and a cup full to the brim of wine. There they never hear vain discourse nor lying-a gift in payment-a reward from your Lord."
*** In the earlier verses, Allah was promising a paradise full of beautiful virgins with large eyes. Then Allah added re generated virginity. Now, he is also endowing them with large breasts to match.
In the whole of the Hebrew Bible, Paradise is not mentioned nor its pleasures.

83:22 "The believers will be in Delightful Bliss: On couch-like thrones, gazing, their thirst will be slaked with pure wine."
85:11 "For those who believe and do good deeds will be Gardens; the fulfillment of all desires."
88:8 "Faces will be joyful, glad with their endeavour. In a lofty Garden they hear no harmful speech."
88:12 "Therein will be a bubbling spring, raised throne-like couches, drinking cups ready placed, cushions set in rows, and rich silken carpets all spread out."
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 5638 Narrated byAbuHurayrah
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "The inhabitants of Paradise are hairless, beardless and have black eyes, their youth does not pass away and their garments do not wear out."
Tirmidhi and Darimi transmitted it.
Bukhari: 4.476-544 "The Prophet said, 'In Paradise they will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Everyone will have two virgins who will be so beautiful and transparent the bones of their legs will be seen through their flesh.'"
*** What happened to the 72 virgins ? ***
Bukhari: 4.544 "Allah's Apostle said, 'The first group who will enter Paradise will be glittering like the moon and those who will follow will glitter like the most brilliant star. They will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Their combs will be gold and their sweat will smell like musk. Their companions will be houris [virgins]. All of them will look alike and will be sixty cubits (180 feet) tall.'"
Bukhari : 6.252 Narrated byMusab
I asked my father, "Was the Verse: 'Say: (O Muhammad) Shall We tell you the greatest losers in respect of their deeds?'(18.103) revealed regarding Al-Haruriyya?"
He said, "No, but regarding the Jews and the Christians, for the Jews disbelieved Muhammad and the Christians disbelieved in Paradise and say that there are neither meals nor drinks therein. Al- Hururiyya are those people who break their pledge to Allah after they have confirmed that they will fulfill it, and Sad used to call them 'Al-Fasiqin (evildoers who forsake Allah's obedience)."
*** Muhammad, the true poor Arabian shepherd, could not conceive of a Paradise without water, greenery, fruits, food, sensual and sexual pleasures because these were the very items lacking in his life ordinarily, as well as in the lives of his kith and kin, the Bedouins.
That is why he finds it unacceptable to believe in a 'spiritual' and not a 'physical' Paradise. After all, the whole of his religious ideas as shown in his Quran are anchored in the belief and the PROMISE of a prardise enjoyed by himself and his followers in a physical sense with unlimited sensual and sexual pleasures.
Had this not been the case, he would have had no followers at all.
They died for him and his ideas because they truly believed that he was the messenger of Allah who could and would intercede on their behalf to enter PARADISE.
They truly believed and still believe, that they will be rewarded with virgins who will be at their beck and call as if paradise could be turned into a whorehouse for the 'martyred' followers of Muhammad, all of them
"dying in the path of Allah" ***
Bukhari: 7.494 "I heard the Prophet saying, 'From among my followers there will be some who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, to be lawful. Allah will destroy them during the night and will let mountains fall on them. He will transform the rest into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Doom.'"
*** "He will transform the rest into monkeys and pigs" is the same curse that Muhammad had heaped upon the Jews who broke the Sabbath ruling:
2: 65 And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath; We said to them: "Be ye apes despised and rejected."
4: 47 O ye people of the Book! believe in what We have (now) revealed confirming what was (already) with you before We change the face and fame of some (of you) beyond all recognition and turn them hindwards or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath-breakers: for the decision of Allah must be carried out. ***
Bukhari: 8.542 "Allah's Apostle said, 'The believers, after being saved from the Fire, will be stopped at a bridge between Paradise and Hell and mutual retaliation will be established among them regarding wrongs they have committed against one another. After they are cleansed and purified through the retaliation, they will be admitted into Paradise.'"
Bukhari: 8.550 I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "From my followers there will enter Paradise a crowd, seventy thousand in number whose faces will glitter as the moon does when it is full." On hearing that, 'Ukasha bin Mihsan Al-Asdi got up, lifting his covering sheet, and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Invoke Allah that He may make me one of them." The Prophet said, "O Allah, make him one of them." Another man from the Ansar got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Invoke Allah to make me one of them." The Prophet said (to him), "'Ukasha has preceded you."
*** The CULT of Muhammad has no concept of the SPIRITUAL world. Those of his followers who die while attempting to slaughter UNBELIEVERS, end up in a WHOREHOUSE PARADISE with unlimited sex, food and other carnal and sensual pleasures ***
