Does Allah know about snow?
Happy New Year everyone!
Just a thought while I'm away and looking out at five feet of snow and the thermometer plunges...did Allah think that cool shady bowers was a universally appealing prospect for those contemplating Paradise? What of those of his Creation who spend their lives trying to keep warm as opposed to sheltering from the heat of the desert? Do they not get a look-in?
Does such a parochial view of heaven not provoke the slightest twinges of doubt in the breasts of the believers now they know that a huge swathe of humanity would view hot chocolate and and a log fire as heavenly. Is that any sillier than rivers of cool wine and foxy virgins?
Anyway, back to work and the boring quotidian of earning a living soon -
