“Gardens of perpetual residence; they will enter them with whoever were righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their descendants. And the angels will enter upon them from every gate, [saying], "Peace be upon you for what you patiently endured. And excellent is the final home.” - Quran: Ar-Rad (13: 23-24) *The relationships of this life are temporal, but love in righteousness is eternal. In the eternal Gardens of Bliss the righteous will be reunited with all those near and dear ones whom they loved, provided only that they were righteous also; for in eternity nothing else counts. Blood- relationships and marriage relationships create certain physical bonds in this life, which may lead to much good, and possibly also to evil.
All that is physical or evil will go. But the good will come forth with new meaning in the final Reckoning. Thus ancestors and descendants, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters (dhurriyat includes them), whole love was pure and sanctified, will find new bliss in the perfecting of their love and will see a new and mystic meaning in the old and ephemeral bonds. Can we wonder at Jacob’s reunion with Joseph, or that of Moses with Aaron, or Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) and Khadijah (RA)? In fact all the Righteous will be reunited in the Hereafter.
