Watermelons in Jannah

Question ID: 22497

Greeting mufti, I was wondering, which is a more correct interpretation of things in Jannah, for example, like a watermelon:

1. We see a watermelon, for example; it looks nice, it tastes nice. Will there be watermelons in Jannah? Yes, there will. Just of a much better quality. The same watermelon, but of a quality and taste beyond what we’ve ever experienced. But it is a watermelon nonetheless. What we are saying is that a watermelon in the Dunyaa is a watermelon in Jannah. Just, the one in Jannah will taste better, look better, smell better, etc.

2.It is not really a watermelon. So for example, in regards to let say a watermelon in Jannah. Since you say our conception of things will be different, so in Jannah, it’s not really a watermelon nonetheless, just something better than we can imagine.t Jannah’s watermelon is something else entirely.

I was curious between these two views, which is the more correct interpretation.

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُاللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

1.) These examples are to facilitate understanding.
So that we can understand things are going to be better to another level there.

وَعَلَيْكُمُ السَّلَام وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ وَمَغْفِرَتُهُ
