This is a sign of Divine blessings. Raihaan also refers to a state where the soul is encompassed by peace and ensconced in mercy. Commentators of Qur’aan mention that Raihaan is a flower that will be brought from Jannah and given as a gift to the accepted slaves of Allah Ta’ala. Imam al Qurtubi mentions in his Tafseer that Raihaan in Surah Waqiah refers to the blessing of being able to listen to the words of Allah Ta’ala. The Arabs of the past used to say, “I went out seeking the Raihaan of Allah”, meaning, the sustenance & gifts of Allah Ta’ala.
