A Garden beyond the Garden: The Mystical Vision of Paradise in Classical Islam

Although the basic eschatological narrative and, in particular, the woeful condition of sinners on the Day of Judgment is depicted in the Qur’an in a graphic manner, the ambiguous nature of many Qur’anic verses has led some Muslim theologians, philosophers, and Sufis to re-examine and re-imagine heavenly rewards and punishments in the hereafter. The fate of human beings is perhaps the most complex issue they debated. In this talk, Maryam Moazzen, Professor of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies in the Department of Comparative Humanities, will discuss how Muslim theologians and philosophers have presented their reasoned speculations and Sufis have expressed their visions.
