Hoor ayn maidens 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.
Allah Subhanah has promised the Righteous dwellers of Paradise that He will marry them with absolutely gorgeous and beautiful women in Paradise, who will be created by the Lord of a special creation, who will be and remain of equal age for ever, who will be absolutely chaste and holy and pure, who will be virgins untouched by any man or Jinn before, whose bashful eyes will be absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, big, and lustrous, their skins will be as beautiful, pure, and as delicate as the super-soft lining of an egg, and they will be as beautiful and valuable as priceless precious stones! That is the Promise of Allah; and who can be Truer in their Promises than Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 44 Surah Dukhan verses 51-55:
51 As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of security
52 Among Gardens and Springs;
53 Dressed in fine silk and in rich brocade they will face each other;
54 So; and We shall join them to Maidens with beautiful, big and lustrous eyes.
55 There can they call for every kind of fruit in peace and security;
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 55 Surah Rahmaan verses 54-59:
54 They (the dwellers of
55 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
56 In them will be chaste (Maidens), restraining their glances; whom no man or Jinn before them has touched
57 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
58 Like unto rubies and coral.
59 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 55 Surah Rahmaan verses 70-75:
70 In them will be fair (companions) good and beautiful
71 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
72 Companions restrained (as to their glances), in (goodly) pavilions
73 Then which of the favor of your Lord will ye deny?
74 Whom no man or Jinn before them has touched
75 Then which of the favors of your Lord will ye deny?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 56 Surah Waqiah verses 34-37:
34 And (the Righteous in
35 We have created (their Maidens) of special creation.
36 And made them virgin-pure (and undefiled)
37 Beloved and equal in age
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 52 Surah Tur verses 17-20:
17 As to the Righteous they will be in Gardens and in Happiness
18 Enjoying the (Bliss) which their Lord hath bestowed on them, and their Lord shall deliver them from the Penalty of the Fire.
19 (To them will be said:) "Eat and drink ye with profit and health because of your (past good) deeds."
20 They will recline (with ease) on Thrones (of Dignity) arranged in ranks; and We shall join them to Companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 38 Surah Saad verses 49-53:
49 This is a Message (of admonition): and verily for the Righteous is a beautiful place of (final) Return.
50 Gardens of Eternity, whose doors will (ever) be open to them;
51 Therein will they recline (at ease); therein can they call (at pleasure) for fruit in abundance and (delicious) drink;
52 And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances (companions) of equal age.
53 Such is the promise made to you for the Day of Account!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 37 Surah Saafaat verses 48-49:
48 And beside them will be chaste women; restraining their glances with big eyes (of wonder and beauty).
49 As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.572 Narrated by Anas
I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) say: "A forenoons journey or an afternoons journey in Allah's Cause is better than the whole world and whatever is in it; and a place equal to an arrow bow of anyone of you, or a place equal to a foot in Paradise is better than the whole world and whatever is in it; and if one of the women of Paradise looked at the earth, she would fill the whole space between them (the earth and the heaven) with light, and would fill whatever is in between them, with perfume, and the veil of her face is better than the whole world and whatever is in it."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 5649 Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, in Paradise there is a meeting-place for the large-eyed maidens who will raise voices such as created beings have never heard and they say, "We are the women who live for ever and do not pass away; we are the women in affluent circumstances who will not be destitute; we are the women who are pleased and not displeased. Blessed are those who belong to us and to whom we belong!"
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1967 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
The Prophet (saws) said, "Paradise is decorated for Ramadan from the beginning of the year till a following year, and when the first day of Ramadan comes, a wind under the throne blows some of the leaves of paradise on the Maidens with large bright eyes, and they say, 'My Lord, appoint us husbands from among Thy servants, with whom we shall be happy and who will be happy with us."
