Eternal love

"On lined couches, reclining on them face to face. There will wait on them immortal youth with bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure spring, wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness.
And fruits such as they choose, and flesh of fowls that they desire. And [there are] fair ones with wide, lovely eyes, like unto hidden pearls as a reward for what they used to do.
They will hear no vain speaking nor recrimination. All that is said is "Peace! Peace!"
And the Companions of the Right Hand: What of the Companions of the Right Hand? Amid thornless lote trees, fruit-laden acacias, wide-spreading shade, gashing water, and fruits in abundance never failing, neither out of reach nor yet forbidden, and on elevated couches; lo! We [Allah] have created them a [new] creation and made them virgins, lovers, friends, for the Companions of the Right Hand."
(Al-Waqi`ah 56:15-38)
