Superiority of Muslim Women over Hoors (Hoor al-ayn/Hurs/Houris)* in Jannah (Paradise) in light of the Holy Quranand Hadiths:
Praise be to Allah (Subhaanahu Wa' Ta’aalaa);Allâh (SWT) says in the Holy Quran:"
 (beautiful, fair females) restrained in pavilions...With
Whom no man or jinn "
" (has opened their hymens with sexualintercourse) before them.
" [Sura Ar-Rahmân (55):72,74]According to Ibn Kathir (died 1373 CE) in his Koranic commentary (Tafsir) of above mentionedSurah Al-Rahman (55), verse 72:"The Prophet Muhammad (
ملسو یلع لا لص 
ہ ہ 
) was heard saying:‘The smallest reward for the people of paradise is an abode where there are 80,000 servants and72 wives, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls, aquamarine, and ruby, as wide as thedistance from Al-Jabiyyah [a Damascus suburb] to Sana'a [Yemen]’."At-Tirmizi, vol. 2 states on page 138: The Prophet Muhammad (
ملسو یلع لا لص 
ہ ہ 
)said"Every manwho enters paradise shall be given72 (seventy-two) houris; no matter at what age he had died,when he is admitted into paradise, he will become a thirty-year-old, and shall not age any further.A man in paradise shall be given virility equal to that of one hundred men". Narrated from Anas (R.A.) that the Prophet Muhammad (
ملسو یلع لا لص 
ہ ہ 
) said:“A believer manwill have73 wivesin heaven. We asked him (
ملسو یلع لا لص 
ہ ہ 
): Will he able to do (i.e. have sexwith all of them) this? And He (
ملسو یلع لا لص 
ہ ہ 
) replied: He will be given power of 100 (men).”[Abu Na’eem Sifat al-Jannah] Now many people want to know that: who will be superior the Muslim women of this world or the Houris (hoor al-Ayn/hur ul-Ayn/hoors/hurs) in Islamic Paradise? If you too want to know thenyou can read this whole article till the end.
Houris (hoor al-ayn/hurs/hoors) are completely a different creation and areunmatched when compared with the Muslim women of this world:
*Definition of Houris (hoor al-Ayn/hur ul-Ayn/hoors/hurs) from Noble Quran:"Very fair females created by Allah as such not from the off-spring of Adam, with intense black irises of their eyes and intense white scleras". [Noble Quran; Glossary; Houris]So it is obvious that houris (hoor al-Ayn) will be different from the off-springs of the ProphetAdam (A.S.), and as humans are the most superior creation of Allah (SWT) so Muslim womenare superior to houris just like we as humans are superior to Jinns, Angels and all other creaturesof Allah (SWT) that exist. So a hoori who is one of the delights of Paradise, she has only beencreated in Paradise for the sake of someone else, and has been made the reward for the believing
man for his righteous deeds. But for Muslim women, they themselves are from the off-springs of Adam and the rewards of Paradise are created for them and on the contrary houris (hoor al-Ayn)themselves are from the rewards of Paradise.Therefore, the houris (hoor al-Ayn) are not from the offsprings of Adam (A.S.) and have thier own attributes and are living in Paradise since it was created. But righteous women of this worldwill enter Paradise after surviving the pains, hardships and performing righteous deeds in thisworld.
A superior recreation and high status of Muslim women in the Hereafter (inParadise):
Allah (SWT) mentions that He will recreate Muslim women in Paradise in the following verse of Quran:"Lo! We have created them a (new) creation. And made them virgins…" [Sura Al-Waqi`ah (56):35-36]That is, Allah will recreate the elderly women and make them virgins; the same will be done for old men, Allah will make them youth. This is also mentioned in the following Hadith:Al-Hasan Al-Basri says that:"An old woman came to the messenger of Allah and made a request,O’ Messenger of Allah make Dua that Allah grants me entrance into Jannah. The messenger of Allah replied, O’ Mother, an old woman cannot enter Jannah. That woman started crying and began to leave.The messenger of Allah said, Say to the woman that one will not enter in a stateof old age, but Allah will make all the women of Jannah young virgins (forever)." [At-Tirmizi]It is also mentioned in the Hadith that the women of this worldly life have superiority over houris(hoor al-Ayn) due to the acts of worship and obedience that they performed in this world.Therefore, the believing women will enter Paradise just like the believing men. If a woman had anumber of husbands, she, upon entering Paradise with them, would choose among them the onewith the best character and behavior.The following Hadiths confirms the fact stated above:Umme Salamah (Radiahallahu Anha) narrates that she said to the Prophet Muhammad (SallallahuAlayhi Wasallam) "O Rasûlullah, are the women of this world superior or the hûrs (of Paradise)?"He replied,"The women of this world will have superiority over the hûrs (houris) just as the outer lining of a garment has superiority over the inner lining." Umme Salamah R.A then asked, "ORasûlullah, what is the reason for this?" He answered, "Because they performed salâh, fasted, andworshipped [Allah]. Allah will put light on their faces and silk on their bodies. [The humanwomen] will be fair in complexion and will wear green clothing and yellow jewelry. Their incense-burners will be made of pearls and their combs will be of gold. They will say, 'We are thewomen who will stay forever and we will never die. We are the women who will always remainin comfort and we will never undergo difficulty. We are the women who will stay and we willnever leave. Listen, we are happy women and we will never become sad. Glad tidings to thosemen for whom we are and who are for us.'" [Tabrânî]Al-Qurtubi said: Abu Bakr ibn al-Najjaad said: Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn Shaakir told us,‘Ubaydibn Ishaaq al-‘Attaar told us, Sinaan ibn Haaroon told us, from Humayd from Anas that: Umm
Habeebah the wife of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “OMessenger of Allaah, if a woman had two husbands in this life, then they all died and cametogether in Paradise, with which of them would she be – the first or the last?” He said: “With theone whose attitude and conduct with her was best, O Umm Habeebah; a good attitude brings onethe best of this world and the Hereafter.”[Al-Tadhkirah fi Ahwaal al-Mawtaa wa’l-Aakhirah,2/278]Imam Qurtubi in his "at-Tadhkirah fi-Ahwalil Mawta wa'l-Akhirah (in Remembrance of theAffairs of the Dead and Doomsday)" and Ibn Kathir in his "al-Bidaya wa'n-Nihaya (Kitabu’l-Fitan wa’l-Malahim) the Termination of the Afflictions and Fierce Battles" tell the story of thesongs of houri in heaven:“Houri will sing for their own husbands, songs are so marvelous thatevery hearer will be so pleased. Houri will say: “We are Houri who has not had a sin.” Thewomen of this world will reply them saying: “We are the fasters (who keep fast), and you are not,we are the prayers, but you are not and we are the givers of charity but you are not.”And there is another narration which is famous with the name "Hadith of Soor" narrated fromAbu Hurayrah (R.A.) that the Prophet Muhammad (
ملسو یلع لا لص 
ہ ہ 
) said that:“Every man inheaven will go to 72 of the creatures of Allah (houris) and 2 of the women of mankind, these twowomen are superior to the creatures of Allah (houris) with their worshipping (good deeds) theyhad performed in this world.” [Bayhaqi, al-Bas wa’n-Nushur; Tabari, Tafsir; Abu Yala, Ibn Hajar,Fathu’l-Baari, Tabarani and others]So it is clear that Muslim women will not feel jealous of the houris (hoor al-Ayn) as righteouswomen of this world will be much more superior and beautiful than houris (hoor al-Ayn), inJannah (Paradise).Thus the situation of the believing woman in Paradise will be better than the situation of thehouris (hoor al-Ayn); she will be higher in status and more beautiful. If a righteous woman fromamong the people of this world enters Paradise, then she will do so as a reward for her righteousdeeds and as an honor from Allah to her for her religious commitment and righteousness. As for the houri who is one of the delights of Paradise, is an immortal woman, who does not age. Shespeaks softly and does not raise voice at her man; she is always reconciled with him. Having been brought up in luxury, she is a luxury herself, she has only been created in Paradise for the sake of someone else, and has been made the reward for the believing man for his righteous deeds. Thereis a great difference between one who enters Paradise as a reward for her righteous deeds and theone who was created as a reward for one who did righteous deeds. The former is a queen and a princess, and the latter, no matter how beautiful she is, is undoubtedly lower in status than aqueen, and she (houri) is subject to the command of her believing master (man) for whom Allahcreated her as a reward.
One Important Note (Must Read):
Some Non-Muslims point out to verses in the Qur'an, which speak about how Muslim men would be able to have sex with the Houris in paradise. Then they exclaim that this is immorality or fornication. However, we must pay close attention to what the Quran actually says...Allâh (SWT) says in the Holy Quran:So (it will be), and We shallmarry them to
 (female fair ones) with wide, lovely eyes.[Surah Ad-Dukhân (44):54]"But those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh - Islâmic Monotheism) and do deeds of
