Heaven and Paradise are connected with spiritual beliefs. Heaven is a place where heavenly bodies such as the God, angels, jinn, and many more are placed in the sky or the area above the earth. It is believed that good people go to heaven and it belongs to the praiseworthy and good souls. Heaven is described by most religions as the place having beautiful buildings, streets of silver and gold, and precious stones. All kind of luxuries are available in heaven, but those all are the imagination of a person. One cannot be sure or precise while saying how heaven will look; as it was mentioned above that it’s all a religious belief.

Paradise is a religious term for a place in which existence is positive, pleasant-sounding and everlasting. Paradise is a place of bliss, delight and happiness.
