  • People of Paradise will have same size, not features Date: 12-1-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum Brother. I was just wondering; it sounds like we will all look the same and act the same in heaven, like all white, all 90 feet tall, no beard, and all looking like Aadam, may Allaah exalt his mention, but that sounds horrible; looking all the same like robots.
