* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ أُوْلَـٰئِكَ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتُ عَدْنٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهِمُ ٱلأَنْهَارُ يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيهَا مِنْ أَسَاوِرَ مِن ذَهَبٍ وَيَلْبَسُونَ ثِيَاباً خُضْراً مِّن سُنْدُسٍ وَإِسْتَبْرَقٍ مُّتَّكِئِينَ فِيهَا عَلَى ٱلأَرَآئِكِ نِعْمَ ٱلثَّوَابُ وَحَسُنَتْ مُرْتَفَقاً }

Those for them there shall be Gardens of Eden as a place of residence underneath which rivers flow; therein they shall be adorned with bracelets of gold min asāwir it is said that min here is either extra or partitive; it asāwir is the plural of aswira — similar in pattern to ahmira for himār — which is the plural of siwār and they shall wear green garments of fine silk sundus and heavy silk brocade istabraq is that silk which is coarse God says in the verse of sūrat al-Rahmān Q. 5554 lined with heavy silk brocade; reclining therein on couches arā’ik is the plural of arīka which is a bed inside a curtained canopy and is also a tent adorned with garments and curtains for a bride. How excellent a reward a requital is Paradise and how fair a resting-place!
