Brief Comments on Riyaadh al-Saaliheen #58

Hunger and Nakedness

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

[Sharh Riyaadh al-Saaliheen (4/264) of Shaikh al-`Uthaymeen رحمه الله]

Allaah تعالى says:

{إن لك ألا تجوع فيها ولا تعرى*وأنك لاتظمؤ فيها ولا تضحى}

{Verily, you (O Aadam) have (a promise from Us) that (in Paradise) you will never be hungry therein nor naked * And you (will) suffer not from thirst therein nor from the sun's heat} [Surah Taahaa (20): 118-119]

The Shaikh رحمه الله said:

Some people got confused by these Verses, saying: “Why did not Allaah say: ‘You will never be hungry therein nor thirsty; nor will you be naked therein nor will you suffer from the sun’s heat’?”

But whoever comprehends the meaning, will realize the eloquence of the Qur’aan.

Allaah تعالى said:

{that you will never be hungry therein nor naked}

Hunger is like the internal nakedness (in man). So, when the stomach is devoid of food it is (abdominal) nakedness for it; {nor naked} (is in relation to) the apparent/external clothes.

{And you (will) suffer not from thirst therein}, this is the abdominal heat. {nor from the sun's heat} this is the external heat.


  1. Salam alaikum

    The Dashboard is also showing no. 59 - etiquette of Yawning - but the link doesn't work, it says the post does not exist or similar - why? : (

    Salam alaikum


    1. wa `alaikum assalaam.

      I deleted that post, because the topic (Yawning) was already posted under post #35, and I somehow overlooked it and had re-posted it under #59.

      Here's the link to it:
