[3] Fataawaa Regarding Women: The men will have the Hoorul Ain in Jannah; but what will the women have? [By Shaikh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah)]

Question: It is stated (in the Qur’aan and authentic Sunnah) that the men will have the Hoorul Ain in Jannah, so what will the women have?


Allaah (The Blessed and Most High) stated concerning the enjoyment the people of Paradise will (receive):

وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَا تَشْتَهِي أَنفُسُكُمْ وَلَكُمْ فِيهَا مَا تَدَّعُونَ

نُزُلًا مِّنْ غَفُورٍ رَّحِيمٍ

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

Allaah (The Most High) said:

وَفِيهَا مَا تَشْتَهِيهِ الْأَنفُسُ وَتَلَذُّ الْأَعْيُنُ ۖ وَأَنتُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

(There will be) therein all that the one’s inner-selves could desire, all that the eyes could delight in, and you will abide therein forever. [43:71]

It is well known that marriage is the greatest thing that the souls desire and it will be present in Jannah for the people of Jannah-men and women. In Jannah, Allaah (The Blessed and Most High) will give a woman in marriage to the husband who was her husband in the worldly life, as Allaah (The Blessed and Most High) said:

رَبَّنَا وَأَدْخِلْهُمْ جَنَّاتِ عَدْنٍ الَّتِي وَعَدتَّهُمْ وَمَن صَلَحَ مِنْ آبَائِهِمْ وَأَزْوَاجِهِمْ وَذُرِّيَّاتِهِمْ ۚ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

“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. [40:8]
