Rewards of Pious women in Paradise
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
one of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
It is said by many that in heaven men will get "Hurs" or beautiful fairies for wives? What will happen to good and god-fearing
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Rewards of Pious women in Paradise
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The fortunate people who will be rewarded Paradise by Allah Subhanah, will get an abundance of things from their Lord: eternal life of pleasure, gardens, wealth, properties, palaces, servants, canals of milk and honey, natural springs, abundance of food and fruits, and loving husband/wives, children, family, etc. And above all, they will get the Pleasure and Good Will of their Lord and Creator!
The hurs are only a part of the bounty that the men of Paradise will receive from their Generous Lord.
Allah has promised the people of Paradise that they will receive whatever they desire. Whatever they may ask for, no matter how small or big, will be provided for them instantly. They will be treated like honored and VIP guests of the Lord of the worlds! Forever!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 50 Surah Qaaf verse 35:There they (the men and women of Paradise) shall have all that they will desire, and We have with Us yet more for them!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqan verses 15-16:Ask them, Is this (the Fire) better, or the everlasting gardens which have been promised to the God-fearing, righteous people (men and women)?. That will be the recompense of their good deeds and the final destination of their journey, wherein, they will get everything they desire, and wherein they will dwell forever. This is a promise which your Lord has taken upon Himself to fulfill.
Your Question: What will happen to good and
As regards the rewards that the successful people of Paradise (whether men or women) will receive from their Bounteous and Generous Lord, they will be the same. But since man and woman are created with different likes, dislikes, and preferences, Allah will reward each of them according to their nature or fitrah, and whatever each of them asks for, Allah will provide for them immediately.
Ref: Spouses for the people of Paradise.
Allah Subhanah, Who Created everything in existence, also created its nature. And since man was created polygamous by nature, one of the rewards which Allah and His Messenger (saws) have promised men is the companionship of many chaste, beautiful, and obedient wives in Paradise.
The nature granted by Allah to women is not the same that was granted to men, so that both of them can complement each other, and live in harmony and peace. Unlike men, a woman is not polygamous by nature. The things that a woman desires most from her husband is that he love her, cherish her, honor her, respect her, and treat her like a queen. And every woman also has the desire to be the most beautiful of all!
Thus, of all the heavenly wives of the righteous men of Paradise, Allah will make his righteous wife of this world to be the most beautiful amongst all of his wives! And she will be like the queen of the household and live with her husband in peace, harmony, bliss, and joy for ever! She will be granted whatever she desires, as promised by Allah Subhanah in the Glorious Quran.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 32 Surah Sajdah verse 17:No living being knows what comfort of the eyes has been kept hidden from them, as a recompense for their (righteous) deeds!
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said in an authentic narration that the bounties of Paradise are something which no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no human mind has even perceived.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
