A traditional Islamic garden is water and shade, since Islam came from and is generally spread in such a hot and arid climate. Four water canals typically carry water into a central pool or fountain, the four streams symbolizing the four main elements of life. The four streams may also be interpreted as the four rivers in paradise, filled with milk, honey, wine and water.

The Qur'an has many references to gardens and the garden is used as an earthly analogue for the life in paradise (Qur'an 9.72).
