Question

will people of paradise get answers to all ques. which, at present, are beyond human comprehension e.g. 'mystery of creation of universe', 'how souls / creatures are created' & so on...

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

Allaah, the Most High, informed us in His Book that whoever enters Paradise will get whatever he wishes and find whatever he desires and he will get even more than that; Allaah Says (what means): {And therein is whatever the souls desire and [what] delights the eyes.}[Quran 43:71] There is nothing that a person desires in Paradise except that he will be given it; Allaah Says (what means): {Gardens of perpetual residence, which they will enter, beneath which rivers flow. They will have therein whatever they wish. Thus does Allaah reward the righteous.}[Quran 16:31]

Moreover, Allaah Says in a Qudsi Hadeeth: “I have prepared for My righteous Slaves [in Paradise] what no eyes have ever seen, no ears have ever heard of, and what has never come to the mind or heart of a human being.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Even those who will be punished in Hellfire among the disobedient Muslims and who will be permitted afterwards to get out of it and enter Paradise, Allaah would say to the one of them: “Desire (whatever you like).” He would request as much as he likes. He will do so until all his desires have been finished. Then Allaah will say, ‘Request more of such and such things.’ Allaah will remind him and when all his desires and wishes have been fulfilled, Allaah will say, ‘All this is granted to you and a similar amount besides.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Nonetheless, it is not beneficial for a person to be preoccupied by what is in Paradise, and what he can find in it; rather, he should take the necessary means that lead to entering it and to getting a greater status in it. It is with this that his heart and his tongue should be preoccupied. The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “If you were to ask Allaah for anything, ask Him for Al-Firdaws, for it is the middle part of Paradise and it is the highest part of Paradise.” [Al-Bukhari]

Allaah Knows best.
