Jannah
 
Jannah is the Islamic name for paradise. It is derived from the Hebrew term Gan Eden or Garden of Eden. The Arabic form Jannah, is a shortened version meaning simply "Garden". According to Islamic eschatology, after death, one will reside in the grave until the appointed resurrection on Yaum al-Qiyamah. Muslims believe that the treatment of the individual in the life of the grave will be according to his or her deeds in the worldly life. Jannah is often compared to Christian concepts of Heaven.
