But from my limited reading I think Muslims believe it was not here on earth. And some hold that when Adam and Eve were expelled Adam went to Ceylon and Eve to Arabia and Adam met up with her there?
Many Christians believe the goal after death is to live with God in Heaven but for Muslims it is to return to that Paradise where Adam and Eve originally dwelt?
The prophets and martyrs go to Paradise after death but everyone else remains in the grave until the Day of Resurrection?
What is the story behind the idea that men will be given 72 virgins? And what reward will there be for women?
I seem to remember a hadith about an old woman going to Muhammad asking if she an old woman could go to Paradise. He told her no. That saddened her but then he added that she would first be made young and beautiful and go to Paradise.
