Title: Rebuilding the Architecture of Heaven Based on Quran Verses and Hadiths
Abstract: According to the Holy Quran, the human is a combination of body and soul. So he will continue to live after death and resurrection. In addition, heaven and hell are the two destinations that human’s eternal life will be spent there. In this regard and based on the quality of his eternal life, the present inquiry seeks to answer the raised question “What will the architecture of heaven be like?” Studying Quran verses and hadiths, we aim to provide the exact design and architecture of heaven and we hope it would be an inspirational model for Iranian gardens. To achieve this, we collected our data by reviewing related literature (library research method) and applied the descriptive- analytic study. Finally, our findings reveal that heaven is in the form of several gardens that one would figure out the design of its architecture through human’s heavenly needs and the environmental qualities of heaven.
