The Meadows of Jannah

Ibn Abil-Dunya and others relate a hadith transmitted by Jabir ibn Abd Allah:

‘The Messenger of God [may God bless him and grant him peace] came out to us and said, “O people, roam the meadows of Jannah!

And we asked, “And what are the meadows of Jannah, Messenger of Allah?” He answered, “The gatherings of remembrance.”

Then he said, “So be nourished and take your rest and remember. Let anyone who wishes to know his place with Allah behold what place he has given Allah [in his soul], for verily Allah will give to a servant the [same] place with Him that the servant has given to Allah within himself.“‘[Bayhaqi]
