paragraph 115

Of the Saracens' belief

I will (now) tell you somewhat of the belief of the Saracens, even as is read in the book which Mahomet gave them, and which is named Al-Qurán by some of them, Misáp (Mashaf ‘book’) by others, and Haram (Horme ‘holy’) by others, according to their respective languages. (In the which book is written that) whosoever shall do good will go to Paradise after his death, and whoso shall do evil will go to hell. And if one of them be asked what is Paradise, he will say that it is a place wherein is every delight and all manner of fruit for ever and ever, and wherein there is a river of wine and a river of honey and a river of new-milk and a river of sweet water, and fair houses at one's desire, of red gold and of silver and of precious stones, and wherein every man hath ten wives, and though he went with them all, they will not the less be maidens.
