Are there airports and airplanes in Paradise?

Are there airports and airplanes in Paradise?
This might sound very childish but I would like to know if someone likes something on earth very much , like an airplane for example , can he get one in heaven ? can he get an airport as well ?.


Praise be to Allaah.


This question is not childish, rather it is
prescribed for the intelligent person to ask questions, seek benefits and look for that which will increase his longing for Paradise and make him
strive harder to reach it. Some of the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked him similar questions to

It was narrated from Sulaymaan ibn Buraydah
from his father that a man asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “O Messenger of Allaah, are there horses in
Paradise?” He said, “If Allaah admits you to Paradise, any time you wish to be carried on a horse of red rubies that will fly with you wherever
you want in Paradise, you will do that.” Another man asked him, “O Messenger of Allaah, will there be camels in Paradise?” and he did not say to
him something like he said to his companion. He said, “If Allaah admits you to Paradise, you will have there whatever your heart desires.” 

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2543; this hadeeth
was classed as hasan by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 3/522. 

With regard to the specific topic of your
question, about a person who loves flying and airplanes, there are many saheeh ahaadeeth which speak of a similar joy.  

It was proven that the souls of the martyrs
are in the crops of birds in Paradise, flying wherever they wish. Narrated by Muslim, 2410. 

It was proven that Ja’far ibn Abi Taalib (may
Allaah be pleased with him) flies in Paradise with two wings, as an honour from Allaah and to replace his arms which were cut off in the battle of

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: The
Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I saw Ja’far flying in Paradise with the angels.” 

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3763; classed as
saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 3465. 

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that he used to say salaam to
Ibn Ja’far and say, “Peace be upon you, O son of the one with two wings.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3506. 

It seems that for a person to fly by himself
is more exciting for most people than flying by means of something else. There are many verses and ahaadeeth which say that people in Paradise
will have whatever their hearts desire and more. 

As it says in the verse (interpretation of
the meaning): 

“Trays of gold and cups will be passed
round them; (there will be) therein all that inner-selves could desire, and all that eyes could delight in and you will abide therein forever”

[al-Zukhruf 43:71] 

Al-Sa’di said in his commentary on this

“… all that inner-selves could desire…”
– this phrase is comprehensive and includes every kind of blessing, joy, delight and pleasure, in the most perfect and best sense. 

And Allaah says (interpretation of the

“‘Adn (Eden) Paradise (Gardens of
Eternity) which they will enter, under which rivers flow, they will have therein all that they wish. Thus Allaah rewards the Muttaqoon (the

[al-Nahl 16:31] 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah says: ‘I have prepared for My righteous slaves that which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and it has never
crossed the mind of man.’ Recite if you wish: ‘No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy as a reward for what
they used to do’ [al-Sajdah 32:17 – interpretation of the meaning].” 

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3072; Muslim, 2824 

A person should be certain of the absolute
perfection of Paradise and of its people’s happiness. 

With regard to being certain that there will
be airplanes and airports and other things for which no proof is narrated in the texts, this is the matter of knowledge of the Unseen, which needs

We say as the Messenger (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If Allaah admits you to Paradise you will have therein whatever your heart desires and whatever will
delight you.” 

We ask Allaah to help us and you to do that
which will lead us to everlasting delight in Paradise. 

And Allaah knows best.

Islam Q&A


Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
