What Muslim Women get in Paradise

Paradise contains 72 virgins for Muslim men, but what about Muslim women?

The Quranic answer: All the pleasures of Paradise such as kinds of food, beautiful scenes, houses, and clothes, will be equally for men and women. The only thing that is for men alone in Paradise is the Hoor (divine maiden or virgin).

Some women may inquire why women are not promised male hoors. The answer seems to be: because women long for adornment and jewels more than they hanker after sexual pleasures!

According to scholar Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, “Allah mentioned the wives of Paradise because men naturally seek them, which is not the case with women. Therefore, Allah did not refer to the husbands of women in Paradise, but this does not mean that they will have no husbands there; rather, they will have human husbands.”

It is specified that a woman who died after marriage will be with her husband in Paradise. A woman whose husband died, and she did not remarry until her death, will also be with her husband in Paradise. A woman whose husband died and she married another one, will be with the last husband... and so on.

Muslim men are inspired to great deeds by the Hadith: “None is made to enter Paradise by Allah Most High except Allah Most High shall marry him to seventy-two wives, two of them from the wide-eyed maidens of Paradise and seventy of them his inheritance from the People of Hellfire, not one of them but her attraction never lags nor his arousal ever wanes.” (Ibn Majah; Ibn Adi’s Kamil; al-Bayhaqi’s al-Ba`th wal-Nushur)

So, an endless orgy of pleasure with 72 maidens awaits the men in paradise. But the earthly wife's heavenly reward is to be with her husband, who is having a good time with these 72 maidens. That will make her very happy, and not the least bit jealous!

Nice, huh?
