The world of color is full of inspiration and secrets.
Colors give various impressions, for instance there is a color that gives the
impression of coldness and another that gives the impression of heat. There is
a color that has a mysterious and adventurous impression, like the color blue
whereas the color green gives the impression of relief and tranquility.
In our life we only know the seven colors of the spectrum but
in the Afterlife there will be other colors that will till man with pleasant
emotions like confidence, internal peace and joy.
Let us draw together a beautiful picture of spring in one
of the most splendid gardens in the whole world. Imagine the beautiful roses
and flowers with their various colors smiling on the green branches and
welcoming springtime. Imagine also the trees that are full of fruit of

Do you think that this wonderful picture is anywhere close
to the picture of Paradise? If you think so then you are wrong because Paradise
is something that cannot be imagined as the Prophet (pbuh) said, "Paradise
is full of things that no eye has ever seen and no ear has ever heard and no heart
can ever compass.
This means that no matter how hard we try to imagine and draw
pictures of Paradise, our minds and imaginations will always remain inadequate
and they will take us nowhere close to the true image of Paradise.

of my powers is to read your mind and to know your wishes. We have finally
reached your palace in Paradise."
