They shall not hear therein any Laghw, but only Salam. (19;62)

Allah also says,

لااَّ لَغْوٌ فِيهَا وَلَا تَأْثِيمٌ

Free from any Laghw, and free from sin. (52;23)

and He says,

لَا يَسْمَعُونَ فِيهَا لَغْواً وَلَا تَأْثِيماً إِلااَّ قِيلاً سَلَـماً سَلَـماً

No Laghw will they hear therein, nor any sinful speech. But only the saying of;"Salam! Salam!" (56;25-26)

Then Allah continues,


فِيهَا عَيْنٌ جَارِيَةٌ
