Praise be to Allaah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allaah from the evil of our own souls
and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allaah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allaah leaves astray,
no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave
That is a question that we come across many times and
actually, that is something a lot of us ask. In fact, just the
other day, someone asked me the very same question.
My dear sister.....first of all Jannah and Jahannum (and Hoor
AlEen, for that matter) and all what happens in them are
matters of the Hereafter. These are a part of the realm of
the Unseen of which we have very limited perception. Such
matters are beyond our understanding and cannot be
known by reasoning and thinking and we have really no
knowledge of these things except what the Quraan and the
authentic Sunnah tell us.
And actually, one should not really get into the details or
indulge in discussions of the matters of the unseen without
knowledge, because there is really no benefit in that.
Rather if such a question comes up, we should say Allaah
And follow not (i.e., say not, or do not, or witness not) that
of which you have no knowledge. Verily, the hearing, and
the sight, and the heart of each of those ones will be
questioned (by Allaah) (Surah al-Isra :36)
And, dear sister, from whatever limited knowledge we do
have about Jannah that Allaah and His Messenger (sal
Allaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) have informed us, there are a
few points that we, as believing women, should remember,
when questions such as these pop up in our heads.
The first and foremost thing to remember is that this is
Allaah, Rab ul Aalameen we are talking about here.
Remember that He is ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem, the One who
is Just and there is no one more just than Him....
And He is the One who is Fair and there is no one who is
more fair than Him!!
will give the believing women of Jannah something equally
pleasing too. There is no way that He will favor the men
over the women, aoodhu billaah. Subhaanahu wa Taala.
Another thing to remember is that what pleases women
may be different from what pleases men. And everybody
knows that. So wouldnt He, Who created us in the first
place know that better than anybody else?
So have this firm belief in Him, and have blind trust in Him,
Subhaanahu Wa Taala....He, who knows us women and our
nature best and He, who will give the women of Jannah
whatever will please her the best.
Allaah will marry the believing women to their husbands of
the dunya if they were righteous and make them pleased
with that. That IS what they would desire. They wouldnt
want any one else.
And if a woman did not get married during her worldly life, or if her husband was not from the people of Jannah, then Allaah will marry her to one of the believing men in Jannah. The women will live with their husband and children and
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
