Ayah

وَبَشِّرِ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ أَنَّ لَهُمۡ جَنَّٰتٍ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡهَٰرُ ۖ كُلَّمَا رُزِقُواْ مِنۡهَا مِن ثَمَرَةٍ رِّزۡقًا ۙ قَالُواْ هَٰذَا ٱلَّذِى رُزِقۡنَا مِن قَبۡلُ ۖ وَأُتُواْ بِهِۦ مُتَشَٰبِهًا ۖ وَلَهُمۡ فِيهَآ أَزۡوَٰجٌ مُّطَهَّرَةٌ ۖ وَهُمۡ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ

Every time they are fed with fruits therefrom, they say: "Why, this is what we were fed with before," for they are given things in similitude; and they have therein companions pure (and holy); and they abide therein (for ever).<br/>
