Here are some articles on the subject:
Wa `alaykum as-salamu wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


Sister, first of all, we’d like to say that we are impressed by your question, which emanates from a thoughtful heart. May Allah Almighty help us all adhere to the principles of this true religion, Islam, and enable us to be among the dwellers of Paradise in the Hereafter, Ameen.

Paradise is the abode of the believers in the Hereafter. Allah has prepared for His believing servants, males and females, in Paradise indescribable bliss which no eye has seen, no ear has heard of, and that has never ever crossed the minds of people, to the extent that even the person who has the least blessings in Paradise will think that he is the most blessed one.

In more than one Qur’anic verse, Allah Most High, calls upon His servants to do their utmost in order to be favored with Paradise. For example, He says, (And vie one with another for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for those who ward off (evil). ) (Al `Imran 3: 133)

As regards your question, we’d like to inform you that in Paradise believing men and women will be showered with blessings; there is no room for discrimination based on sex in Paradise. The life of women in Jannah will be as pleasant and happy as the life of men. Allah is not partial to any sex. He created both of them and He will take care of both of them according to their needs and desires. Let us all work to achieve the Jannah and then,in sha’ Allah, we will find there what will satisfy all of us fully.

In his response to your question, Dr. Sano Koutoub Moustapha, professor of Fiqh and its Principles, International Islamic University, Malaysia, states:

Thank-you so much for your very interesting comments and understanding of the issue of polygamy and the blessings given to men in Heaven.

I congratulate you for your logical ability and critical way of looking at things. However, I shall also confirm to you the issue of polygamy, be it in this life or the hereafter, it should not be classified as a privilege but rather a solution as you correctly mentioned in your arguments.

In other words, Islam does not open the door of polygamy for all men as it does not open it to women at all. As you may know well that each ruling or law has an exception and the exception is not the principle, therefore, we can not judge a law through its exceptions.

In this regard, I shall remind you that rewarding a mujahid with many wives doesn’t mean betraying the female mujahid.

It simply means there is a such reward for those mujahids who are looking for it. In other words, there is no compulsion upon all mujahids to accept or reject this reward. It is exactly the same thing as the polygamy in this life.

It is meant for those who want it, not for every single mujahid. Yet every Muslim man and woman who is allowed to enter Heaven is given the opportunity to get whatever he or she wants as clearly stated in the Qur’an and many Hadiths of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). This means that those women who don’t want their husbands to have more could be granted this wish and desire. At the same time if the husbands of those women want to have more than them Allah is great and can satisfy each of them in the way He, the Almighty, wants.

Therefore, a woman should not be frustrated for a privilege of polygamy offered to men. This is not, for sure, at the expense of woman. Heaven is meant for both men and women, both of them are equally entitled to get what they wish for.

Certainly, there would be no clashes in their wishes, if any, the Almighty knows how to please each of them. Having said that, I shall inform you that the existing setup of humans in terms of desire, would be changed on the day of Judgment.

In other words, both men and women would not be allowed to enter Heaven in their existing physical makeup. They will be in a better and greater form as stated by the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Both of them would enjoy living together and having whatever they wish and like.

Finally, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) describes Heaven as a place where there are many things which no eyes have ever seen, no ears have ever heard before and no heart has ever felt. Let us pray the Almighty to grant us this great and wonderful place. Let us work harder and harder to be in this place. It is only through our full submission to the will and the orders of Allah that we will one day be granted this place.

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Sister, first of all, we’d like to say that we are impressed by your question, which emanates from a thoughtful heart. May Allah Almighty help us all adhere to the principles of this true religion, Islam, and enable us to be among the dwellers of Paradise in the Hereafter, Ameen!

As regards your question, it should be clear that Paradise is the abode of happiness; all its dwellers, males or females, will be showered with Allah’s blessings and favors. There is no discrimination in this regard between men and women. It is righteousness and good deeds that elevates one’s rank in Jannah and exalts his/her position. In more than one Qur'anic verse, Allah, Most High, calls upon His servants to do their utmost in order to be favored with Paradise. For example, He says, (And vie one with another for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for those who ward off (evil). ) (Aal `Imran 3: 133)

In this context, Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America, states:

Jannah or Paradise is not for men alone. It is prepared for both, righteous men and righteous women. All the joys and blessings of Jannah are for both of them. Allah has mentioned in the Qur’an that He put both Adam and his wife Hawwa’ (Eve) in Jannah after creating them, and He told them to eat and enjoy everything (except the fruit of one tree). [See al-Baqarah 2: 35; al-A`raf 7: 19] Thus, all the trees, gardens and rivers of Jannah are made for both men and women and they both will enjoy them.

All Believers, males and females, will enter the Jannah. Allah says, ( Gardens of perpetual bliss: they shall enter there, as well as the righteous among their fathers, their spouses, and their offspring) (ar-Ra`d 13: 23)

Further, Allah says, (Indeed, the people of Paradise will be happily occupied. They and their wives shall be in shades, reclining on raised couches. There are for them fruits and there is for them all that they ask for…) (Ya-Sin 36: 55-57)

In the Hereafter Allah will say to the Believers, (Enter the Garden, you and your wives, you will be made glad. There will be brought round for them trays of gold and goblets, and therein is all that the souls desire and eyes find sweet and you will stay there forever. This is the garden, which you are made to inherit because of what you used to do. Therein for you is fruit in plenty whence to eat. ) (Az-Zukhruf 43: 70-73)

There are many other places in the Qur’an where it is mentioned that men and women both will find their reward and none will be deprived. [See: Aal `Imran 3: 195; An-Nisa’, 4: 124; An-Nahl 16: 97; Al-Ahzab 33: 35; Ghafir 40: 40]

The life of women in Jannah will be as pleasant and happy as the life of men. Allah is not partial to any gender. He created both of them and He will take care of both of them according to their needs and desires. Let us all work to achieve the Jannah and then, in sha’ Allah, we will find there what will satisfy all of us fully.

This verse clearly denotes that those women who do righteous deeds are rewarded with Paradise and given a high rank that is equal to the good deeds they have offered.
Shedding more light on this issue, we'd like to cite the following fatwa issued by the outstanding Muslim scholar, Sheikh ibn Jibreen:

There is no doubt that reward in the Hereafter encompasses both men and women. This is based on the following Qur'anic verses:

( Lo! I suffer not the work of any worker, male or female, to be lost) (Al `Imran 3: 195)

(Whosoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while he (or she) is a true believer, We will give a good life. ) (An-Nahl 16: 97)

(And whoever does righteous good deeds, being a male or a female, and is a true believer, such will enter Paradise. ) (An-Nisa 4: 124)

(Verily, the Muslims, men and women, the believers, men and women... Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward. ) (Al-Ahzab 33: 35)

Allah mentions them entering into Paradise together, saying:

(They and their wives will be in pleasant shade. ) (Ya Sin 36: 56)

(Enter Paradise, you and your wives, in happiness. ) (Az-Zukhruf 43: 70)

Allah also mentions that He will recreate women in Paradise in the following verse:

( Lo! We have created them a (new) creation. And made them virgins… ) (Al-Waqi`ah 56: 35-36) That is, Allah will recreate the elderly women and make them virgins; the same will be done for old men, Allah will make them youth.

It is also mentioned in the Hadith that the women of this worldly life have a superiority over Al-hur Al-`In due to the acts of worship and obedience that they performed in this world. Therefore, the believing women will enter Paradise just like the believing men. If a woman had a number of husbands, she, upon entering Paradise with them, would choose among them the one with the best character and behavior.

Thus, rest assured dear sister that Allah never wrongs anyone, male or female, nor does He, Almighty, deprive any person of his/her work’s fruit.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All thanks and praise are due to Allah and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Dear questioner, we would like to thank you for your good question and we implore Almighty Allah for His help in furnishing you with the best answer.

In the very beginning, we would like to cite Ibn Kathir’s comment on the issue of men having Hoor Al-`Een. It reads:“ Almighty Allah tells us that He will provide the residents of Paradise with beautiful wives who have big and lustrous eyes and 'whom no man or Jinn before them has touched' and who are 'Like unto rubies and coral'”.

In fact, Paradise is the abode of the believers in the Hereafter. Allah has prepared for His believing servants, males and females, in Paradise indescribable bliss that which no eye has seen, no ear has heard of and that has never ever crossed the minds of people, to the extent that even the person who has the least blessings in Paradise will think that he is the most blessed one.

In more than one Qur'anic verse, Allah, Most High, calls upon His servants to do their utmost in order to be favored with Paradise. For example, He says, "And vie one with another for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for those who ward off (evil)." (Al `Imran: 133)

All this indicates that in Paradise believing men and women will be showered with blessings; there is no room for discrimination based on gender in Paradise.

Focusing more on this issue, Sheikh `Atiyyah Saqr, former Head of Al-Azhar Fatwa Committee, adds:

[indent]“Here Allah mentions the Hoor Al`Een because in most cases men pursue women and not vice versa. As for women, Allah Almighty may marry them to any of the believers in Paradise, if they did not get married during worldly life, or He may compensate them by making them feel content with their position. It is also said that Allah may grant women some kind of beauty with which they will feel that they are better than the Hoor Al-`Een and that they are their mistress, so they will not love anyone other than their own husbands nor will they feel jealous of the Hoor Al-`Een.”

Allah Almighty knows best.

Question:

I am a firm believer in the Qur'an and Allah. Thank Allah my faith and trust in Him grows each day. My concern is this: the Qur'an mentions over and over the blessings of Heaven. It repeatedly mentions beautiful, pure maidens as a bounty of Heaven. People often say Islam is a male dominance religion.
Why is there not mention of rewards for women?

Answer:
Praise be to Allah

Since you believe in Allah and His Book, you must know that (": and not one will thy Lord treat with injustice"), Verse 49, Surat al-Kahf, or the Cave, and ("Allah is never unjust in the least degree: if there is any good done), He doubleth it, and gives from His Own Self a great reward") .

Allah has meant this Law of Islam (Shari'ah) for both men and women. All address to men in the Quran is address to women, and all rules affecting men affect women as will unless evidence is established that one of them is .

The evidence that women are included in Verses of the Quran in the male gender is a Hadith by ‘Ayishah who said that the Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) was asked about a man who sees traces of semen but does not remember having any dream of sexual nature. The Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Such man should perform the Ghusul (ritual ablution). He was also asked of a man who remembers a dream of sexual nature but sees no traces of semen. He said: "Such man does not have to perform the Ghusul (ritual ablution). Umm Salim said "A woman may have the same experience. Does she have to perform the Ghusul (ritual ablution)?" The Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Yes, there is no difference in this between man and woman." Narrated by Abu Dawud, at-Tirmizi 113 and others. The last .

:

Um Salamah said: "O Messenger of Allah. I did not hear a Verse in the Quran regarding the Hijrah (migration with the Prophet ) of women." Then was revealed the Verse: ("And their Lord has accepted of them, and ,and fought and were slain – Verily I will blot out from them their inequities, and admit them into gardens with rivers flowing beneath; ... A reward from Allah, and from Allah is the best of rewards."), Verse 195, Surat .

Ibn Kathir (May Allah have mercy on him) said the Verse ("fastajaba lahum rabbuhum") means Allah replied to their queries ... and the Verse ("anni la udi’u ‘amala ‘amilin minkum min thakarin aw untha") is an explanation of the reply meaning that good deeds will not be lost or ignored. All men and women will have the just reward for their deeds. The Verse ("ba’dukum min ba’d") means you will be treated equally with respect to .

If any do deeds of righteousness, be they male or female, and have faith, they will enter heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them.) .

In explanation of this Verse, Ibn Kathir (May Allah have mercy on him) said the Verse shows Allah’s kindness, generosity and mercy in accepting the good deeds of all people, men and women, provided that they believe, in .

Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has faith, verily, to him will we give a life that is good and pure, and we will bestow on such their reward according to the best of actions.), Verse 97, Surat an-Nahl, or the .

,and the Sunnah of His Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him), be they men or women, if they believe in Allah and His Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him), that He will make them live a good .

He that makes evil will not be requited but by the like thereof; and he that makes a righteous deed – whether man or woman – And is a believer – Such will enter the garden (of bliss): therein will they have abundancewithout measure.) .

:

Um ‘Umarah al-Ansariyyah said that she went to the Prophet (May peace and blessings be upon him) and said to Him: "I feel that everything is for men. Women are not mentioned as having anything. Then was revealed the Verse: (For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women etc) .

In the collection of Hadiths of Imam Ahmad was narrated the Hadith that Um Salama (May Allah be pleased with her) said: "I said "O Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) of Allah. Why aren’t we mentioned in the Quran in an equal footing with men?" Then; I was surprised to hear Him call one day from the pulpit: "O people." As I was combing my hair at the moment, I wrapped it up and came close to the door and stood there listening to Him say: "Allah, Mighty and Sublime be He, revealed that (For Muslim men and women; for believing men and women; for devout men and women, for true men and women; for men and women who are patient and constant; for men and women who humble themselves; for men and women who give in charity; for men and women who fast; for men and women who guard their chastity; and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s remembrance for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.) .

.

May Allah have blessing on Prophet Muhammad .

Question:


According to the Qur’an when a man enters paradise, he will get hoor, i.e. beautiful maidens. What will a woman have when she enters paradise?


Answer:


1. Hoor mentioned in the Qur’an


The word hoor occurs in the Qur’an in no less than four different places:


(1)** In Surah Dukhan chapter 44, verse 54 s


"Moreover, We shall join them to companions
With beautiful, big and lustrous eyes."
[Al-Qur’an 44:54]


(2)** In Surah Al-Tur chapter 52 verse 20


"...And We shall join them to companions, with beautiful,
big and lustrous eyes."
[Al-Qur’an 52:20]


(3)* In Surah Rahman chapter 55 verse 72


"Companions restrained (as to their glances), in goodly pavilions."
[Al-Qur’an 55:72]


(4)** In Surah Al-Waqiah chapter 56 verse 22


"And (there will be) companions with beautiful, big and lustrous eyes."
[Al-Qur’an 56:22]


2. Hoor Translated as Beautiful Maidens


Many translators of the Qur’an have translated the word hoor as ‘beautiful maidens’ especially in the Urdu translations. If hoor means ‘beautiful maidens’ or girls, then they are meant only for the men. Hence, what will the women get if they enter Paradise?


3. Meaning of Hoor


The word hoor is actually the plural of ahwar (applicable to man) and of haura (applicable to woman) and signifies a person having eyes characterized by hauar a special quality bestowed upon a good soul, male or female in paradise and it denotes the intense whiteness of the white part of the spiritual eye.


The Qur’an describes in several other verses that in paradise you will have azwaj which mean a pair or spouse or companion which means you will have spouses or companions pure and holy (mutaharratun means pure, holy).


"But give glad tidings to those who believe and work righteousness, that their portion is gardens, beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are fed with fruits therefrom, they say: "Why, this is what we were fed with before", for they are given things in similitude; and they have therein companions pure (and holy); and they abide therein (forever)".
[Al-Qur’an 2:25]


"But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, We shall soon admit to Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath – their eternal home; therein shall they have companions pure and holy: we shall admit them to shades, cool and ever deepening". [Al-Qur’an 4:57]


Therefore the word hoor has no specific gender. Mohammad Asad has translated the word hoor as spouse and Abdullah Yusuf Ali as companion. Therefore according to some scholars a man in paradise will have a hoor that is a beautiful maiden with beautiful big and lustrous eyes and a woman in paradise will get a man with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.
4.**** Women will get something exceptional in Paradise


Many scholars say that in context, the word hoor used in the Qur’an refers only to ladies since gents are addressed. A reply that would be accepted by all types of people would rather be the answer given in the Hadith when a similar question was posed that if a man gets a hoor, a beautiful Maiden in Paradise, then what will the women get? The reply was that the women will get that which the heart has not desired for, the ear hasn’t heard off and the eye hasn’t seen, indicating that even the women will get something exceptional in Paradise.

Fatwa Of Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Salih al-Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) On The Same Question

Q.58. It has been mentioned that men will have Al-Hur Al-'Ain[1] in Paradise. What will there be for women?

Response Of Shaikh Ibn 'Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) - Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High says, regarding the blessings of Paradise:

" ..Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask for. An entertainment from
(Allâh), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah Fussilat 41:31-32)

And He, the Most High says:

"..And therein all that inner-selves could desire, and all that eyes could delight in and you will abide therein forever." (Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:71)

And it is well known that marriage is one of the things which the souls desire most, and so it will be found in Paradise for the people of Paradise, whether they be men or women. So, Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High will marry the woman in Paradise to the man who was her husband in the life of this world, as He, the Most Blessed, the Most High says:

"Our Lord! And make them enter the 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) which you have promised them - and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their offspring! Verily, You are the All Mighty, the All-Wise." (Surah Ghafir 40:8)

If she did not marry in the life of this world, then Allah, the Most High will marry her to one who pleases her in Paradise.

Objection to the fact that a man will have hoor ‘iyn who will share her husband with her

Question:

What happens in paradise, with a couple who have been married. I have heard that the wife will be with her husband, but that the husband will in addition to her, have 70 women (hoors) at his service.
This to me does not seem like a fair concept for the women, to share their husbands in this way.


Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

The believer must submit to the rulings and decrees of Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“The only saying of the faithful believers, when they are called to Allaah (His Words, the Qur’aan) and His Messenger, to judge between them, is that they say: ‘We hear and we obey.’ And such are the successful (who will live forever in Paradise)”

[al-Noor 24:51]

If the believer is confused about anything in the rulings of Allaah, and he does not know what it means or what the reason behind it is, then he must say as those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say:

“We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord”

[Aal ‘Imraan 3:7 – interpretation of the meaning]


It is not permissible for the believer to say that one of the rulings of Allaah is not fair; exalted be Allaah far above that. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):


“And your Lord is not at all unjust to (His) slaves”

[Fussilat 41:46]


There is no rule that is better than the rule of Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Is not Allaah the Best of judges?”

[al-Teen 95:8]


“Do they then seek the judgement of (the days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allaah for a people who have firm Faith?”

[al-Maa’idah 5:50]



Secondly:

In this question there are two mistakes and a misunderstanding. The first mistake is where the questioner says that in Paradise a man will have seventy hoor ‘iyn. What is proven in the saheeh Sunnah is that the martyr (shaheed) will have seventy-two hoor ‘iyn. The least of the people of Paradise will have two wives, and some will have more than that.

It was narrated that al-Miqdaam ibn Ma’di Yakrib said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The martyr has six blessings with Allaah: he will be forgiven from the first drop of blood shed; he will be shown his place in Paradise; he will be protected from the torment of the grave; he will be safe from the greater terror; a crown of dignity will be placed on his head, one ruby of which is better than this world and everything in it; he will be married to seventy-two wives from al-hoor al-‘iyn; and he will intercede for seventy of his relatives.”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1663; Ibn Maajah, 2799; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.


And more than that has been narrated. Abu Na’eem narrated in Sifat al-Jannah from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A man will go to one hundred virgins in one day – i.e., in Paradise.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 367.

It was narrated from Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The lowest of the people of Paradise in status will be a man whose face Allaah will turn away from the Fire towards Paradise, and make a shady tree appear before him. … Then he will enter his house and his two wives from among al-hoor al-‘iyn will enter after him. They will say: ‘Praise be to Allah Who has created you for us and us for you.’ And he will say: ‘No one has been given the like of that which I have been given.’” Narrated by Muslim, 188.

Al-Haafiz said:

The apparent meaning is that the least that will be given to each of them will be two wives.




Thirdly:

The second mistake is the questioner’s saying that al-hoor al-‘iyn will serve the man. This is not correct, rather the ones who will serve the people of Paradise will be boys of everlasting youth. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):


“And round about them will (serve) boys of everlasting youth. If you see them, you would think them scattered pearls”

[al-Insaan 76:19]


Al-hoor al-‘iyn will be wives of the men in Paradise, in addition to their wives from among the people of this world. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“So (it will be). And We shall marry them to Hoor (fair females) with wide lovely eyes”

[al-Dukhaan 44:54]



“They will recline (with ease) on thrones arranged in ranks. And We shall marry them to Hoor (fair females) with wide lovely eyes”

[al-Toor 52:20]



Fourthly:

The misunderstanding is when the questioner says: “This to me does not seem like a fair concept for the women, to share their husbands in this way.”

Fairness or justice is to be found in the rulings of sharee’ah, not in what a person thinks who does not know sharee’ah and its rulings, let alone the reasons behind them.

The sister who is asking this question thinks that the jealousy in her heart, and what it leads to of depression and sorrow will remain with her in Paradise, but this is not correct, and this is why there is this misunderstanding in her question.


Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And We shall remove from their breasts any (mutual) hatred or sense of injury (which they had, if at all, in the life of this world); rivers flowing under them, and they will say: ‘All the praises and thanks be to Allaah, Who has guided us to this, and never could we have found guidance, were it not that Allaah had guided us! Indeed, the Messengers of our Lord did come with the truth.’ And it will be cried out to them: ‘This is the Paradise which you have inherited for what you used to do’”

[al-A’raaf 7:43]


There is nothing but joy and happiness in Paradise; there is no room for hatred and rancour in the hearts of the people of Paradise. Al-hoor al-‘iyn are something which Allaah has created to honour the people of Paradise and to increase their delight. Moreover a man will be given the strength of one hundred men for intercourse, so the large number will not have any effect on a woman, and her feelings towards her co-wives and her husband’s concubines will not be like her feelings in this world.

It was narrated that Zayd ibn Arqam said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to me: “A man in Paradise will be given the strength of one hundred men in eating, drinking, desire and intercourse.” A Jewish man said: “The one who eats and drinks will need to relieve himself.” The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to him, “The way in which one of them will relieve himself will be by means of sweat which will come out through his pores, and thus the food in his stomach will be digested.”


“Do they then seek the judgement of (the days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allaah for a people who have firm Faith?”

[al-Maa’idah 5:50 – interpretation of the meaning]


Narrated by Ahmad, 18827; classed as saheeh by Ibn Hibbaan, 16/443; and by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 1627.

It was narrated from Anas that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The believer in Paradise will be given such-and-such strength for intercourse.” It was said, “O Messenger of Allaah, will he really be able to do that?” He said, “He will be given the strength of a hundred (men).”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2536; classed as saheeh by Ibn Hibbaan, 16/413; and by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 8106.


And Allaah knows best.

i mean...what is the meaning of 'no one reached a stage of excellence except'
:sl:
The hadith says:
Many men attained perfection, but no women attained perfection except 'Âsiyah the wife of Pharoah and Maryam bint 'Imrân. (Mishkât al-Masâbîh 3/118)

This hadith was used by scome scholars - including Imâm Ibn Hazm, Imâm Al-Qurtubî and Imâm Abu al-Hasan Al-Ash'arî - as evidence in favor of the prophethood [Nubuwwah] of women since they argued perfection implies Prophethood.

The response given by other scholars to their argument - including Imâm Al-Qâdi 'Iyâd and Imâm An-Nawawî - was that the hadîth does not necessitate prophethood and in the absence of clear and irrefutable evidence we cannot claim anyone to be a Prophet. They said perfection simply implies attaining completion in all virtues. There were few non-prophets - amongst both men and women - who attained such a status. These scholars also point out that there are hadith which say that Khadija was clearly amongst the perfect women (related by Ibn Mardawayh) and that Fatima would be the leader of the women in paradise apart from Maryam (related by Ahmad, its isnad is jayyid). If this is the case however, then it negates the literal exception of the first hadith which restricts perfection to only two women.

Whichever of these two views is correct, it changes absolutely nothing in terms of beliefs, concepts or actions. And Allah swt knows best.

Some more info...

In this hadith, the relevant part is bolded and underlined, but its context is provided to help understand the discussion between the umm al-mu'mineen, Umm Salamah rd and the Prophet Muhammad saws:
Umm Salamah says, "I asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about the saying of Allah:
وحور عين
{And there will be Hûr with wide lovely eyes} 56:22
He said, 'Huge eyes; the edge of an eyelid of Al-Hûr is like the wing of an eagle.'

I said, 'Inform me about His Saying:
كأمثال اللؤلؤ المكنون
{Like unto preserved pearls} 56:23
He said: 'Pureness, from the pureness of the pearls which are in shells that have not been touched by hands.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about His Saying:
فيهن خيرات حسان
{Therein (gardens) will be khayrâtun hisân (fair (wives) good and beautiful)} 55:70
He said, 'Wonderful manners and beautiful faces.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about His Saying:
كأنهن بيض مكنون
{(Delicate and pure) as if they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved} 37:49
He said, 'Their delicateness is like the delicateness of the skin on the inside of an egg (i.e. the fine layer that comes after the shell)...'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about His Saying:
عربا أترابا
{Loving (their husbands) only, (and) of equal age} 56:37
He said, 'They are the ones who become decrepit in the world, afflicted with Rams (shedding of tears caused by sickness) and Sham (whiteness of the hair). They will love passionately and they will be loved. And they will be Atrâban, born on the same day (i.e. of the same age)'.

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me: are the women of this world better or Al-Hûr Al-'Een?'
He replied, 'Rather the women of this world are better than the Al-Hûr Al-'Een, like the superiority a garment to its lining.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, with what (are the women of this world superior)?'
He replied, 'With their prayer, their fasting, and their worship of Allah. Allah will clothe their faces with light, and their bodies with silk. White in color, with green garments, and yellow adorments...and their combs are gold. They will say: We will live forever and never die, we are comfortable and will never become wretched, we are settled and will never travel away. Lo! We are the pleased ones and we will never become dissatisfied or angry. Tooba (blessings) for he who is for us and has us for him.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, a woman from us marries two, three or four husbands (in the world, after divorce or after the husband's death), and then she dies. Then she enters Paradise and they enter with her. Who will be her husband?'
He replied, 'O Umm Salamah, she is given a choice, and she chooses the one from them who had the best manners, so she will say: O my Lord, this one had better manners towards me in the abode of the world than the rest of them, so marry me to him.
O Umm Salamah, good manners have taken the goodness of this world and the hereafter.' " (Related by At-Tabarânî)

Here is a narration that gives an understanding of the status of Al-Hûr Al-Een:

Sa'îd ibn Jubayr related that Ibn 'Abbâs said, "Were a Hûrî to bring out her hand between the heaven and the earth, all created beings would be captivated by her beauty. And if she were to bring out her veil, the sun compared to its beauty would be like a wick (of a candle) compared to the sun: no light does it have. And were she to bring out her face, its beauty would illuminate that which is between the heavens and the earth." (Related by Abu Bakr ibn Abî Ad-Dunyâ)

So, if this is the status of Al-Hûr Al-'Een, then contemplate the status of the believing women of this world who are superior to the Hûr in every aspect!

The renowned mufassir Imâm Al-Qurtubî writes the following:
Anas ibn Mâlik related that the Messenger of Allah said, "Verily, the wives of the dwellers of Paradise will sing for their husbands with the most beautiful voices that anyone will have ever heard. This is from what they will sing: we live forever and never die, we are safe and never become afraid, we are settled and will never travel away." (Related by Ibn Abî Dhuaib)

When they say that statement, the believing women from the people of this world will say, "We are the one praying ones, and you never prayed; we are the fasting ones and you never fasted; we are the ones who performed wudoo and you never performed wudoo; we are the ones who gave charity and you never gave charity." Aishah said, "They (the believing women of this world) will overcome them (with their words)."

And Allah knows best. (At-Tadhkirah)

I dont understand why will women have to stay indoors in jannah?

Isnt Jannah a place where all inhabitants cant commit sin so why do the women need to be 'guarded' and why do we have to stay inside???

Does it mean we won't be able to meet our family members from this life??
Does it mean we won't see our children?

Read the first post in this thread. It will help you understand. Don't worry if excepted to paradise, inshaAllah you will. You will be in state of Peace and happiness FOREVER. You can do what you like, visit who you want, and enjoy yourself. InshaAllah.

In more than one Qur’anic verse, Allah Most High, calls upon His servants to do their utmost in order to be favored with Paradise. For example, He says, (And vie one with another for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Paradise as wide as are the heavens and the earth, prepared for those who ward off (evil). ) (Al `Imran 3: 133)

As regards your question, we’d like to inform you that in Paradise believing men and women will be showered with blessings; there is no room for discrimination based on sex in Paradise. The life of women in Jannah will be as pleasant and happy as the life of men. Allah is not partial to any sex. He created both of them and He will take care of both of them according to their needs and desires. Let us all work to achieve the Jannah and then,in sha’ Allah, we will find there what will satisfy all of us fully.

I dont think so...

Qatada posted this on the other thread 'description of hoor al iyn' and in it it also says that much of this refers to women as 'hoor' is often taken to mean all females.


6 – Allaah describes them as refraining from looking at anyone except their husbands (interpretation of the meaning):

“Wherein both will be Qaasiraat‑ut‑Tarf [chaste females (wives) restraining their glances, desiring none except their husbands]”

[al-Rahmaan 55:56]

“Hoor (beautiful, fair females) guarded in pavilions”

[al-Rahmaan 55:72]


Ibn al-Qayyim said:

Allaah describes them as being “guarded in pavilions”, i.e., they are prevented from making a display of themselves before anyone except their husbands. They are guarded for their husbands and they do not go out of their houses, and they restrain themselves for them and do not desire anyone else. And Allaah describes them as “Qaasiraat‑ut‑Tarf [chaste females (wives) restraining their glances”. This description is more complete than the first, for one of them restrains her gaze and focuses her love upon her husband, she is content with him and does not look beyond him at anyone else.

I believe the women of humanity will not be among the ranks or category of Al-Hoor al Heins... since these heavenly figures did not went through the test of human life... with prayers, fasting, ablution, charity and so on... Women will have a rank equal to Men... in a manner very unique and special for them... their ranks will provide peace, happiness and contentment that they would not be longing for anything less than that.

Believeing women will be staying in mansions in paradise... gold, silk and perl adornements overflow their surroundings. While men will have Al-hurs al hein as their adornments.

It is not appropriate for a woman to have 72 men to be her adornments... since... if a woman belongs to 1 husband... she is a pure believing woman... an epitome of faithfullness and fidelity and purity. But if a woman is owned or surrounded by many men... what would that make her? Allah, created all things, beings, seen or unseen with their unique and special attributes.... if we go against the original intent or design of their nature... then we are committing a deviation. This is the reason why Homosexuality and Lesbianism is the works of Shaytan... because the devil only wants man to deviate against his true nature. And the knowledge that Shaytan provides to the beliving women or men is to question, complain, rebel and cry this is unfair to Allah. And Allah knows best... the best for your true nature.


Just one of my insights...

That was the view of Ibn ul Qayyim sister, and other scholars state otherwise alhamdulillah:


This does not mean that they will never go out of their realms, rather they will have everything they desire of that which Allaah has prepared for the people of Paradise. And the same is said concerning the believing women of Paradise.


Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Sa’di (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

“Houris (beautiful, fair females) restrained in pavilions” [al-Rahmaan 55:72] means: kept in tents of pearl, always ready for their husbands. That does not mean that they do not go out in the gardens of Paradise, as the daughters of kings and others like them, such as girls kept in seclusion and those who are very shy usually do.

Tafseer al-Sa’di (p. 831).


In Paradise, there will be no evil looks or sickness of the heart such that a woman will be required to cover her face, and it is not the place for striving or commands or prohibitions, as ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “Today is for striving with no reckoning and tomorrow is for reckoning with no striving.” Narrated by al-Bayhaqi in Shu’ab al-Eemaan (10614); narrated by al-Bukhaari in a mu’allaq report in Baab al-Aml wa Tooliha, in Kitaab al-Riqaaq.

Does it mean we won't be able to meet our family members from this life??
Does it mean we won't see our children?

And those who believe and whose offspring follow them in Faith, to them shall We join their offspring, and We shall not decrease the reward of their deeds in anything. Every person is a pledge for that which he has earned.

[Qur'an Tur 52: 21]

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)

Thank you for this informative thread
I think the problem for us now is that our mind is not able to understand how wonderful Jannah will be even if our husbands will have more than one wife. I also think now I didn't want to share my dear husband not even in Jannah but this are our feelings from here from this world. We will not be jealous in Jannah and what eases my mind is that Allah will satisfy the wishes of every single one of us no matter if man or woman.

asalam alaikum wr wb,

If Allah wills women to give birth in Jannah then He can make it happen pain-free. For instance the inhabitants of Jannah will eat the food therein yet will have no need to pass waste. So it's nothing for Allah to make childbirth painfree there.

Anyway, I could be wrong, but in my thinking, Jannah is for worthy people who will already have been born before the Day and have strived for it and earned it. So it doesn't appeal to me that people will actually be born into Jannah not having worked for it. Khair that's just my thoughts. Allah knows best.


And lastly, it is more important to try getting into Jannah first and not worrying what might be there. We know that Allah swt will grant the Jannatis all their desires and that should be enough for us to ponder upon. I wouldn't care if my jannati husband had a million wives. I just want Jannah inshaAllah (please Allah). Period!

With regard to children, the scholars differed as to whether children would be born as a result of this intercourse or not. Some said that there would be children if the man wants them, but the pregnancy and birth would take just one hour. Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If the believer wants a child in Paradise, the pregnancy and delivery will take only an hour, then the child will be the age that the man wants.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2487; al-Daarimi, no. 2712; Ahmad, no. 11339; Ibn Maajah, no. 4329).

Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If the believer wants a child in Paradise, the pregnancy and delivery will take only an hour, then the child will be the age that the man wants.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2487; al-Daarimi, no. 2712; Ahmad, no. 11339; Ibn Maajah, no. 4329).

With regard to children, the scholars differed as to whether children would be born as a result of this intercourse or not. Some said that there would be children if the man wants them, but the pregnancy and birth would take just one hour. Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (may Allaah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If the believer wants a child in Paradise, the pregnancy and delivery will take only an hour, then the child will be the age that the man wants.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, no. 2487; al-Daarimi, no. 2712; Ahmad, no. 11339; Ibn Maajah, no. 4329).

SubhanAllah! I was wrong too then :p

That means that the ones entering Jannah will be of the ages 30 or 33. SubhanAllah!

Uhm, forgive me if I'm wrong, but I've heard from a Muslim talk that women who enter Jannah will be blessed with handsome male servants. These male servants will look whatever way we want them to (meaning if I want one particular servant to look like Brad Pitt, then lo and behold!). Can anyone verify this?

Oh yes, to be honest, it doesn't really bother me about husbands having more than 1 wife in Heaven, because I'd be too preoccupied with wanting to visit Allah (swt), all the Prophets (pbut), wives of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), the Matyrs, the Caliphs and whatnot in Jannah to think about what my husband is doing (if I am to enter Paradise, that is). HEH.

I have always thought that it is unfair that a woman in paradise must share her husband with 70 or 72 hour al-ein. I Dunno.
Anyways, I live in an arab muslim society (Tripoli, Lebanon) and I asked about this and most people I asked don't belive in this and some didn't even know about this.
The people I asked are religious and they practice Islam...so if the idea was correct they would agree with it.
Then I asked a mufti and his answer was that in the Quran it is not mentioned that a man gets 72 virgins. In The Quran it is mentioned that there are young boys who will serve the people of paradise and the Hour Al-Ein are also mentioned. Maybe they are also servants?
The mufti I asked said that the people who believe that a man gets 72 virgins in paradise quote a hadith from the prophet (PBUH) that is weak.
Oh and I wanna say that the people I asked r from 3 different generations...now personally this idea that we don't know if a man gets 72 virgins in paradise made more sense to me. I never liked the idea of a woman sharing her husband even if u say that God removes the jealousy from her heart. Why does God remove the jealousy from a woman's heart instead of removing lust from a man's heart? Ur thoughts plz...

Interesting thread...only one question comes to mind;does a woman have to be with her wordly husband in Heaven,or can she marry another?

Not every woman on this earth who gets married is completly and madly in love with her husband,maybe they married each other out of responsibility,maybe she married him because he was a proper husband,but was never really attracted to him,and she never really "clicked" with him.She only gets her husband in jannah,and that means she gets him,and him only for eternity.Does she have an option,or is it her husband right away?


I'd imagine that if he mistreated her gravely,then he would be in Heaven..

Sorry if I sound a bit pessimistic,I've just been surrounded by a lot of "blank" marriages,where women and men do not seem happy,just...o.k.They married because it was "there time".I do believe that a woman should be the happiest with her husband,but not everyone gets a perfect fairytell ending on this earth.And since we are talking here about jannah and eternity and complete bliss,I wonder if it would be allowed for her to marry another man in jannah.

Sorry if this question is unproper

"In this question there are two mistakes and a misunderstanding. The first mistake is where the questioner says that in Paradise a man will have seventy hoor ‘iyn. What is proven in the saheeh Sunnah is that the martyr (shaheed) will have seventy-two hoor ‘iyn. The least of the people of Paradise will have two wives, and some will have more than that.

It was narrated that al-Miqdaam ibn Ma’di Yakrib said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The martyr has six blessings with Allaah: he will be forgiven from the first drop of blood shed; he will be shown his place in Paradise; he will be protected from the torment of the grave; he will be safe from the greater terror; a crown of dignity will be placed on his head, one ruby of which is better than this world and everything in it; he will be married to seventy-two wives from al-hoor al-‘iyn; and he will intercede for seventy of his relatives.”

------------------------------------ If the ppl of paradise will be given two wives from the hoor, and the shaheed receives 72, then what about this hadith: And more than that has been narrated. Abu Na’eem narrated in Sifat al-Jannah from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A man will go to one hundred virgins in one day – i.e., in Paradise.” Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 367. ??
How will they go to one hundred if they only have 2 while the martyrs have 72? I'm just curious lol

He used to love Aisha r.a. the most so sometimes I wonder how he would have other wives from the hoor, and if he would have them. Idk, like they say, curiousity killed the cat =X

I'm sure that the Muslimat will have many times to do things which other men aren't much time consume with it. For example: talking with Malaikat, talking with friends, making a game or an adventure with their friends, reading stories which they make, displaying their work of arts, talking with Jin etc.

Because to men, Jima'(s.intercourse) is like no.1 in their mind, while for women is not no.1 obviously, there are so many things which they will do, like wearing various make up, different fashionable outfit, seeing Allahu Ta'ala etc.

Hadits said that Allahu Ta'ala will give Huurin Iin every time a Muslim(man) hold his anger.

yes I know brother most men are like that, unfortunately.. Anyhow, my question was about the prophets. Since their wives knew about this, didn't they ever ask about it or show some sort of disapproval? Not disapproval in a sense that it's wrong or anything but most likely they might've not liked the idea..

sis confused, whenever u read about the rewards of jannah - they will differ in number depending on the reward the person is getting. i.e. the number 7/70 etc. means 'alot' in arabic, so it is true that a person in higher levels of jannah will have more rewards than a person who is of a lower level.


about the wives of Allah's Messenger (sal Allah alaihi wasalam) not asking, they just wished they could get to jannah. besides, there are no ill feelings in jannah like we know from many verses from qur'an [Hijr 15:45], and alot of women get used to the jealousy in this life, but it [polygamy] is for a greater good [i.e. so the wife can be supported financially, intimately, and in every other way for marriage.]


I'll paste an article on a new thread and link to it here insha Allah on how Allah's Messenger treated jealousy with his wives.

So it's like "What so big about love to husband or whatever, Allah's reward and meeting with Him are bigger than that, so what do I mind about Polygyny, I only mind if he does not have the capability and does not able to be fair and treat his wifes as equal. When he does so, I will remind him."
Alhamdulillah, Polygyny is essentially blessings from Allahu Tabaraka Ta’ala.

The martyres get a special rank (so they get 72 hur ul 'ayn) because of how much they sacrificed for Allah's sake.

The average man in jannah will have two wives according to other ahadith. And Allah knows best.

There will be no enmity between people [in jannah/paradise] nor ill-feelings:

“And We shall remove from their breasts any (mutual) hatred or sense of injury (which they had, if at all, in the life of this world).” (Quran 7:43)

I think I am trying to look for some hope, really. All my life I wished just to have at least one man that loved only me and treated me kindly. Apparently, this is impossible, but Allah is greater than what anyone on this earth says. I look forward to being brainwashed into not caring about it anymore. My heart is so broken and my dreams are shattered. I don't know what I will tell my children if I can't tell it to myself. An issue such as this really hurts my iman. I thought that even Muhammad, PBUH said to Ali when he wanted to take a second wife: "What hurts her hurts me." And there is the golden rule in Islam as well: "One doesn't become a believer until he wants for his (brother/sister) what he wants for himself." I am not trying to say that men should want their wives to have other men. I am saying men and women are really not too different in what they desire, but women are the ones forced to sacrifice not only in this world, but in the next as well. Men really need to think about this and treat us with a lot more kindness and compassion. I would rather work like a slave day and night for the rest of my life knowing I would have my own love at the end of it all and that I would never be lonely again.

Her husband if from this Earth will have his own free will if he chooses to exercise it, and same applies the other way around for the lady.

So basically if a woman does not want her hubbie from this Earth she doesn't have to be with him, and vice versa.

So basically the reward is equal for men and women, and Allah knows best.

Just my 2 cents.

Allah is just. He isn't going to be unjust to women. In Paradise Allah will give everyone whatever their hearts desire. so if a woman wants a man all to herself, I'm sure Allah will give him to her.

In the Quran perpetual youths are also mentioned, not just hoor. and the description is similar in some places to the descritiption of hoors (like scattered pearls, well-guarded pearls).

in this world, our nature serves a certain purpose. for example, men are allowed more than one wife so that they can have many children and can provide for divorcees and widows while women aren't allowed more than one husband so that it can be known who the father is. but in some animals, for example in ants the queen ant mates with many males in order to fertilize many eggs. in this world, men aren't allowed gold and silk but in paradise men and women both will get gold and silk.

Well, I definitely don't want to be a crispy critter. But I will say that there is DEFINITELY NO EXCUSE for a man to EVER be cruel or even condescending to women after all we must sacrifice. And Alhamdulillah, Allah sent down DNA paternity testing if there is ever a doubt. I understand the need for some 'damage control' during this life, but I really think there are some other problems as well. The Prophet, PBUH, granted a divorce to a woman who just said she didn't like the way her husband looked. Here in USA, imams and husbands tell their wives and women of the ummah that since there is no Islamic court system/tribunal here, women can't get a divorce without permission from her husband, whereas the husband can just snap his fingers and that's it (of course after 3 months maintenance, but that doesn't keep a woman off the streets forever.) This happened to me here in Texas. Furthermore, Muhammad, PBUH didn't want Ali to take a wife other than Fatima as "what hurts her hurts me..." was spoken. No, he didn't say that Ali couldn't have another wife, but really, who wants to hurt the Prophet SAWS? Perhaps there is a model to be followed here---polygyny shouldn't be excercised freely. Men need to take into account what the most responsible and kind decision would be for his family, and give his existing wife the option of finding a better match if she so chooses. Men also need to think about the difference between dividing everything from finances to time from full to half (or less with more wives.) before making such a decision and not just be lust-stricken by someone they met (and sometimes have already started a relationship with--which is wrong!). With all that men will be rewarded with and all the rights they have---really I am beside myself to see so many of these men fall into ridiculous patterns, decadence, and abusive behaviors. InshAllah, I hope Al-Mahdi comes soon with '3Isa allayis salam......there is so much fitna in marriages and in politics these days......I have almost no knowledge, and I can see the discrepancies.....

So to sum up this.

1. Women are made equal with men in reward in Hereafter, however the status in Paradise is determined according to the deeds you did, just as the martyr is in higher rank than others so this applies to both men and women

2. Women and men will get everything they desire, so if a women wants to be in her palace or if she wants to walk in the gardens and drink from the rivers of wine, water, milk and honey which Allah (swt) mentioned in Surah 47, or if she wants to sit on her Thrones or if she wants to fly in Paradise wherever she wants, whatever she wants she will get.

3. There will be full justice on Judgment Day, you will be rewarded for your deeds. Not because you were a man or women but because of what you did in this life and both men and women will be equally punished/rewarded in the Hereafter.

So all muslim women and men of course should first of all prepare for the Day of Judgment so they can avoid Hell-fire and once you enter Paradise you will get whatever you desire even if you are at the lowest rank of Paradise.

And there are many verses in the Qur´an which explains this for example refer to Surahs 3:195, 4:124; 9:71-72, 33:35, 33:73, 40:40.

Umm Salamah says, "I asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about the saying of Allah:
وحور عين
{And there will be Hûr with wide lovely eyes} 56:22
He said, 'Huge eyes; the edge of an eyelid of Al-Hûr is like the wing of an eagle.'

I said, 'Inform me about His Saying:

{Like unto preserved pearls} 56:23
He said: 'Pureness, from the pureness of the pearls which are in shells that have not been touched by hands.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about His Saying:
فيهن خيرات حسان
{Therein (gardens) will be khayrâtun hisân (fair (wives) good and beautiful)} 55:70
He said, 'Wonderful manners and beautiful faces.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about His Saying:
كأنهن بيض مكنون
{(Delicate and pure) as if they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved} 37:49
He said, 'Their delicateness is like the delicateness of the skin on the inside of an egg (i.e. the fine layer that comes after the shell)...'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me about His Saying:
عربا أترابا
{Loving (their husbands) only, (and) of equal age} 56:37
He said, 'They are the ones who become decrepit in the world, afflicted with Rams (shedding of tears caused by sickness) and Sham (whiteness of the hair). They will love passionately and they will be loved. And they will be Atrâban, born on the same day (i.e. of the same age)'.

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, inform me: are the women of this world better or Al-Hûr Al-'Een?'
He replied, 'Rather the women of this world are better than the Al-Hûr Al-'Een, like the superiority a garment to its lining.'

I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, with what (are the women of this world superior)?'
He replied, 'With their prayer, their fasting, and their worship of Allah. Allah will clothe their faces with light, and their bodies with silk. White in color, with green garments, and yellow adorments...and their combs are gold. They will say: We will live forever and never die, we are comfortable and will never become wretched, we are settled and will never travel away. Lo! We are the pleased ones and we will never become dissatisfied or angry. Tooba (blessings) for he who is for us and has us for him.'


I said, 'O Messenger of Allah, a woman from us marries two, three or four husbands (in the world, after divorce or after the husband's death), and then she dies. Then she enters Paradise and they enter with her. Who will be her husband?'
He replied, 'O Umm Salamah, she is given a choice, and she chooses the one from them who had the best manners, so she will say: O my Lord, this one had better manners towards me in the abode of the world than the rest of them, so marry me to him.
O Umm Salamah, good manners have taken the goodness of this world and the hereafter.' " (Related by At-Tabarânî)

Here is a narration that gives an understanding of the status of Al-Hûr Al-Een:

Sa'îd ibn Jubayr related that Ibn 'Abbâs said, "Were a Hûrî to bring out her hand between the heaven and the earth, all created beings would be captivated by her beauty. And if she were to bring out her veil, the sun compared to its beauty would be like a wick (of a candle) compared to the sun: no light does it have. And were she to bring out her face, its beauty would illuminate that which is between the heavens and the earth." (Related by Abu Bakr ibn Abî Ad-Dunyâ)

So, if this is the status of Al-Hûr Al-'Een, then contemplate the status of the believing women of this world who are superior to the Hûr in every aspect!

The renowned mufassir Imâm Al-Qurtubî writes the following:
Anas ibn Mâlik related that the Messenger of Allah said, "Verily, the wives of the dwellers of Paradise will sing for their husbands with the most beautiful voices that anyone will have ever heard. This is from what they will sing: we live forever and never die, we are safe and never become afraid, we are settled and will never travel away." (Related by Ibn Abî Dhuaib)

When they say that statement, the believing women from the people of this world will say, "We are the one praying ones, and you never prayed; we are the fasting ones and you never fasted; we are the ones who performed wudoo and you never performed wudoo; we are the ones who gave charity and you never gave charity." Aishah said, "They (the believing women of this world) will overcome them (with their words)."

And Allah knows best. (At-Tadhkirah)

I dont know why you are bothering in quoting these hadith? Some of them such as the one found in Tabarani have been quoted by some as not authentic and the others are from collections which are full of fabricated reports and weak reports.

Rather women will have the same status in Paradise as men, in other words they are completely equal with regards to rewards.

I have heard in many lectures that pious Muslim women from dunya will be 70times more beautiful than the hoor al ayn in Jannah.

Would anyone have any hadith to maybe prove this, i would appreciate it...
Aleikum selam

What does it matter? Seriously we shouldnt bother about this. In Paradise women will have the same status as that of men and will get whatever they desire and will have eternal hapiness as all other inhabitants of Paradise.
