Perfumes of paradise

In Surah-ar-Rahman Allah refers to that person who fears standing in front of his Lord for accounting (for his deeds), and thus refrains from sinning. "And for him who fears to stand before his lord are two gardens". Allamah Majlisi narrates from the Holy prophet (S.A.W.S.) that He said "If one of the hoories' of paradise descends on the first heaven on a dark night and looks down towards the earth, the entire universe will be filled with her fragrance". It is related from Imam Ja'far-as-sadiq (A.S.) that the fragrance of the perfume paradise will reach up to the distance equal to a thousand years. The sand of paradise is of musk. It is related in many traditions that the walls, doors, and the floor of paradise is covered with grass of it's fragrance will be such that an old man proceeding towards paradise will reach such a place which is far from paradise at a distance of a thousand years, yet he will turn young by just the fragrance.
