Fountains for the teary eyes..


﴿فيهما عينان تجريان﴾

قال أبو بكر الوراق:

فيهما عينان تجريان، لمن كانت عيناه في الدنيا تجريان من مخافة الله عز وجل.

[تفسير القرطبي]

Describing Paradise Allah says :

فِيهِمَا عَيْنَانِ تَجْرِيَانِ

[Shakir 55:50] In both of them are two fountains flowing.

Abu Bakr al-Waraaq said:

These two flowing fountains are for the one whose eyes would flow (with tears) from the fear of Allah.

Tafseer Qurtubi

*the word عين is a polysemous and among it’s meanings is fountain and eye.
