Women: Queens Of Jannah

Recommended Posts

Question

If men will be rewarded with a certain number of chaste partners in Jannah, then what will women be rewarded with?

Hanafi Fiqh > Askimam.org

 

Answer

While a man will get many Hurs in jannah, a women would be made the queen of Jannah. Her beauty will far outshine the beauty of the hurs.

 

Umme Salamah R.A narrates that she said to Rasûlullah SAW “O Rasûlullah, are the women of this world superior or the hûrs?” He replied, “The women of this world will have superiority over the hûrs just as the outer lining of a garment has superiority over the inner lining.”

 

Umme Salamah R.A then asked, “O Rasûlullah, what is the reason for this?” He answered, “Because they performed salâh, fasted, and worshipped [Allah]. Allah will put light on their faces and silk on their bodies. [The human women] will be fair in complexion and will wear green clothing and yellow jewelry. Their incense-burners will be made of pearls and their combs will be of gold. They will say, ‘We are the women who will stay forever and we will never die. We are the women who will always remain in comfort and we will never undergo difficulty. We are the women who will stay and we will never leave. Listen, we are happy women and we will never become sad. Glad tidings to those men for whom we are and who are for us.’” (Tabrânî)

 

Muhammed ibn Ka’b Al-Qurazi t narrates from a person of the Ansâr (people of Madînah) that Rasûlullah SAW said, “I take the oath of that Being who sent me with the truth, you are not more acquainted with your wives and houses than the people of Jannat. A person of Jannat will come to 72 wives which Allah specially created in Jannat (hûrs) and 2 human wives. The human wives will have virtue over the [hûrs] because they worshipped Allah in the world.(Targheeb Vol.4 Pg.534)

 

This will be the high position of the women of the world in Jannah.

 

If a women had more than one husband, she will choose which one of them to stay with, and she will choose the one with the best character. As for those women who never married or their husband were mushriks, they will be allowed to marry whichever worldly man, they so wish, in Jannah. Thus every man in Jannah will have 2 wives from the world.

 

If we have full conviction in Allah’s promise that he will fulfil our every desire in Jannah, then instead of worrying about what they will get in jannah, the women should concentrate their endeavours on pleasing Allah and thus getting to Jannah. As for pleasing us in Jannah, That is Allah responsibility, so he will do His and we should do ours. The greatest pleasure in Jannah for men and women will be the very pleasure of Allah. Everything else will be secondary.

Answer

 

Umm-e-Salma (Radhiallaahu Anha) mentions that she asked Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) to explain the Aayat. "There will be hoorun-een" (56:22). Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, "They will be women with wide eyes having a sharp contrast between the white of the cornea and the black of the iris. They will be fair complexioned and their limbs will be free of hair like the wings of a bird."

 

Umm-e-Salma (Radhiallaahu Anhu) then asked for an explanation of the verse, "They will be like concealed pearls" (56:23) to which Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) explained that their purity would be like that of a pearl still inside the oyster, untouched by human hands."

 

She then asked for an explanation of the verse, "They will be good and fair" (55:70) to which Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) replied, "Their character will be good and their faces will be fair." She then asked Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) to explain the verse, "It will be as if they are preserved eggs." Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, "Their softness and delicacy would be like that of the skin you see inside the egg under the shell."

 

She then asked Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) to explain the verses, "We made them virgins, loving and equal in age." (56:36, 37). Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) explained, "They will be those women who left this world old, grey-haired and parch-skinned. Allah will recreate them after this old-age and will make them loving virgins who would be very passionate towards their husband who in turn would be madly in love with them. They would all be of the same age."

 

She then asked, "O Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), are the women of this world superior or the hurs?" He replied, "The women of this world will have superiority over the hurs just as the outer lining of a garment has superiority over the inner lining." Umm-e-Salma (Radhiallaahu Anhu) then asked, "O Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), what is the reason for this?" He answered, "Because they performed Salaat, fasted and worshipped Allah. Allah will put light on their faces and silk on their bodies. (the human women) will be fair in complexion and will wear green clothing and yellow jewellery. Their incense-burners will be made of pearls and their combs will be of gold. They will say, 'We are the women who will stay forever and we will never die. We are the women who will always remain in comfort and we will never die. We are the women who will always remain in comfort and we will never undergo difficulty. We are the women who will stay and we will never leave. Listen, we are happy women and we will never become sad. Glad tidings to those men for whom we are and who are for us."

 

She then asked, "A women of this world married two, three or four husband in this world, then dies and enters Jannah with them, who will be her husband?" Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) answered, "O Umm-e-Salma (Radhiallaahu Anhu), she will be allowed to choose between them, so she will choose the one with the best character. She will say to Allah, "O Allah, this husband displayed the best character to me in the world, so marry him to me." Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) further added, "O Umm-e-Salma, good character has gained (for him) the excellence of this world and the hereafter."
