Any blessings which are not eternal leave unbearable pains in our hearts through their disappearance. If spring which has passed would not come back again next year we would sigh over it until we die. So true blessing is that which is eternal. That is why God the Eternally Beautiful One shows us in the world only the shadows of His Beauty in order to arouse in us a desire for Its eternal and perfect manifestations. What is more. He will allow us some form of seeing Him in Paradise in a manner free from any qualitative and quantitative measures or dimensions.

On that day there will be shining faces gazing upon their Lord (75.22–3).
