THE MAIDENS OF JANNAT

Foreword
The temporary life of this world is a great test for man. Temptations are many and man is weak. The possibilities of faltering and sinning are not remote. Of all the temptations, the temptation relating to the opposite sex is thc highest. If the sexual urge of man is left unchecked and unregulated, there will be total anarchy and mischief in the world. Therefore, Almighty Allah ~ placcd various rcstrictions upon man in this regard. To control and rcgulatc lhis desirc, any limn of illicit affiliation with the opposite scx is slriclly I()rhiddcn. To maintain a high Icvel of moral ily, (Shllll has ordaincd very strict laws and mallY rest ricI iOlls 10 ell rIa iI Ihc unlawful, carnal desires of maII. All of these strict restrictions wcigh heavily Oil IIIl"I/(/j.\' the bestial self - of man. The 1/{{j.'V COllsl;lI11lyslTks carnal gratification and indulgence or ils desir-Los.To control the wild desires of the nafs is no easy lask. I[ C;III be likened to riding a strong, wild horse. Eithcr the rider will keep the horse in check with great effort or thc horse will throw the rider off. This is the constant struggle that exists between man and his desires in this world. For the youth, the struggle is even more intense and great. For those people who restrain and control the desires of the nafs in this world, Allah ~ has promised immense rewards in the Akirah (hereafter). Man sometimes forgets these rewards and becomes inclined to sin. If he is reminded about these rewards, his resolve to control the nafs becomes stronger and more vigorous. It becomes easier to sacrifice the desires in view of these great rewards of the Hereafter. Besides the promise of

these eternal rewards of the Hereafter, there is little that can control the desires of man, especially the desires of the youth. In this book, some of the rewards of the Hereafter, especially those relating to the gorgeous, celestial, wideeyed beauties - the hurs - of Jannat, have been Set out in a clear and concise manner. By reading and pondering about the bounties of Jannat and its beautiful virgins, the youth will feel a renewed vigour to fight the carnal desires and strive for the pleasure of Allah ~ by doing righteous deeds. Furthermore, the beauty of the women of this world will appear pale and insignificant before the beauty of those stunning damsels of Jannat. There is not much authentic literature on this specific topic, and hence this book fulfills this requirement in a captivating way. I would recommend every youngster to acquire a copy of this book, to read it, and ponder over its contents. May Allah ~ accept and reward the efforts of MI. Abdullah Nana of the US in compiling this beneficial book and may Allah ~ inspire him to produce many beneficial writings in the future as well. Amin.

The Maidens of Jannat (Paradise) and other bounties in the li~ht of the Quran and Ahadith
Introduction Allah ~ has placed in every human being the natural desire and inclination for gold, silver, money, transportation (cars), land, and other items of this world. The test for a person is how he responds to his desire for these items. If he uses these items to prepare for the hereafter, he will be successful. On the other hand, if he devotes himself to fulfilling his desire for these items and forgets about his purpose in this world, he will be amongst the losers in the hereafter. Similarly, Allah ~ has placed in every person the natural desire for the opposite sex, and out of all the desires found in a person, the greatest test for a Muslim is how he fulfills this desire. He can either fail this test by spending all his energy to unlawfully satisfy this desire, or pass this test by remaining chaste and fulfilling this desire lawfully through marriage. Rasulullah ~ said regarding the severity of this test, "I have not left a more harmful and severe temptation for men than women. ,,1 This test is even greater for us today because of the generally evil environment in which we are living in. It has become very easy to commit evil and it has become somewhat difficult to do good deeds because of this

environment. As Rasulullah ~ predicted, holding on to the commands of Allah ~ and staying away from evil during this time has become like holding on to a burning coal. In order to motivate us to pass this test, it is very important for u<; to know what is the reward for controlling one's desires and staying away from evil. It becomes very easy for a person to undergo difficulty and hardship to carry out an action when he knows what reward he will receive for doing this action. For example, a person will happily go to work every day and tire himself because he knows that he will receive his paycheck at the end of the month. In the same way, Allah ~ and his Rasul have given us a detailed description of the reward for controlling one's desires in this world, i.e. Jannat (paradise). Jannat is a place where a person will have all that he desires, and he will live a perfect (lad ever-lasting life. Each pleasure of Jannat will be far more superior than the comparable pleasure found in this world, and a person will be able to completely fulfill his desire for that pleasure. For example, a person in this world is always drinking liquids to quench his thirst. No matter how many delicious and tasty beverages he consumes, he will always become thirsty again in a few hours. But, in the hereafter, a person will be able to drink as much as he desires and quench his thirst permanently. Similarly, the women of Jannat will be far more superior than the women of this world. Once a person comes to know of this, it will become very easy for him to stay away from evil and work towards the hereafter. This book contains a detailed description of these women

THE MAIDENS OF JANNAT

based on the verses of the Qurfm, tafsir (explanation of the Quran), Ahadith, and stories of the pious. The purpose of this book is to motivate us to work towards the hereafter and to control our desires in this world through marriage. We should not read this book as a fairy tale or a fantasy; rather we should understand that the contents of this book are a reality for which we should all work towards. It is our fundamental belief that Jannat and Jahannam (hellfire) are already in existence and a person will fulfill all his desires in Jannat both physically and spiritually.

The permissibility of using a weak hadith for describing virtues of actions
The majority of the ahadith in this book are authentic ahadith. However, I have also included weak ahadith because thi~~is a topic related to virtues. The famous Shafi' scholar, Imam Nawawi says in his introduction to the 'arbain' (40 ahadith) that the scholars have agreed on the permissibility of using weak Ahadith for describing the virtues of actions. Hafiz ibn Hajar has further fixed three conditions for using weak ahadith. One is that the hadith must not be very weak, i.e. at least one chain of narrators of this hadith must be free from a narrator who is a liar, is accused of lying, or is known for making great mistakes. The second condition is that it should fit under a general principle, which is established and acted upon. Finally, the third condition is that the person acting upon this hadith should not believe it to be established, but he should exercise caution in this regard2• Only those weak ahadith have been included in this book, which meet these conditions. The classification of the ahadith by the eminent scholars of hadith has been included with the hadith in Arabic.

They will answer, "0 our Lord, we are present and all goodness is in your hands." Allah ~ will then say to them, "Are you pleased?" They will say, "0 our Lord, how could we not be pleased when You have given us [those bounties] which You have not given to any of Your creation?" Allah ~ will say, " Should I not give you something better than all this?" They will say, " What can be better than all this?" Allah will say, "I enter you into My happiness and I will never become angry at you."

(449) ~O\3.Jr+:.J.)! ~I ()4 Suhayb narrates that RasUlullah said, "When the people of Jannat enter into Jannat, Allah ~ will say to them, 'Do you want anything else?' They will say, 'Did you not brighten our faces and enter us into Jannat? Did you not save us from Jahannam?' Then, Allah ~ will remove the veil and they will not be given anything more beloved to them than the sight of their Lord. ,,4

A person will only be able to completely enjoy the bounties of Jannat when he knows that the owner of these bounties is pleased with him and will never become angry with him. His enjoyment of these bounties will increase when he knows that it is iplpossible for him to lose them.

(7197) Mustawrid narrates that Rasu.lullah said, "The comparison of the world to the hereafter is like di ~ping your hand into the ocean and examining how much water you have taken out from it. ,,6 In this hadith, Rasu.lullah has compared the pleasures of this world with the pleasures of the hereafter using a concrete example which we can understand. Otherwise, the pleasures of this world are not even a drop in the ocean compared to the pleasures of Jannat. This is because the pleasures of Jannat will last forever, whereas the pleasures of this world are temporary.

The pleasures of Jannat are un-imaginable

Recite if you wish, "No person knows the joy which is hidden from them. 7" ,,8 From this hadith we can understand that no one can fully comprehend what Allah ~ has kept for us in Jannat. The actual pleasures and bounties of Jannat will be far more enjoyable than what we can imagine them to be.

This hadith gives us a comparison of the pleasures of this world and the pleasures of the Jannat. A person who enjoys the pleasures of Jannat for just once second will forget all the pleasures and difficulties of this world. Therefore, all of us should work towards those pleasures which are everlasting.

THE MAIDENS OF JANNAT

Ali

narrates that Rasullah

said, "Indeed, there will

be a market-place in Jannat where buying and selling will not take place, but there will be outer appearances of men and women. When a person desires a outer appearance, he will immediately take the form of that appearance [temporarily]." 16

Chapter 4: Introduction to the maidens of Jannat
The two types of women in Jannat

Human woman

The first type is the human woman of the world who will be re-created according to the beauty of Jannat. Allah ~ says,

"We created them as a new creation. And we made them virgins, loving to their husbands, equal in age." 17 Allah will make old women into young women and nonvirgins into virgins. No matter how their appearance was in this world, Allah ~ will make them all beautiful and good-looking in accordance to the beauty of Jannat. 18

What will a woman of this world receive in Jannat?
Mufti Mahmud was asked that if men will receive hurs, what will women receive? He replied that the wives of the believers will stay with their own husbands. Women who never married in this world will be given a choice to get married with any (unmarried) man they wish. If they do not like any of them, a special man will be created for them (similar to the hurs) and Allah ~ will join both of them in marriage.19 Allamah Alus! also mentions in his tafs!r that a person's wife in this

2, Hilrs What is a hur?
The second type of women will be those celestial women specially created for the people of Jannat known as the hur a'yn. A hur is a young, beautiful, fair-skinned woman with intensely dark eyes. Another interpretation is that there will be a sharp contrast between the whiteness and darkness of her eyes which is considered to very beautiful. Or it could also mean that her beauty will dumbfound and astonish others. The meaning of a'yn is a woman with big, attractive eyes, which is also considered a sign of beauty. 22

(418/10 ~\) ~.~ j Umme Salamah narrates that she said to Rasulull:lh "0 RaSlllullah, are the women of this world superior or the hurs?" He replied, "The women of this world will have superiority over the hurs just as the outer lining of a garment has superiority over the inner lining." Umme Salamah then asked, "0 RasUlullah, what is the reason for this?" He answered, "Because they performed salah, fasted, and worshipped [Allah]. Allah will put light on their faces and silk on their bodies. [The human women] 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 the women who will stay forever and we will never die. We are the women who will always remain in comfort and we will never undergo difficulty. We are the women who will stay and we will never leave. Listen, we are happy

Chapter 5: A description of the adornments and external features of the maidens of Jannat
Internal and external purity of the maidens of Jannat
Allah ~ says, -J;;~ (!l-Jjl ~ ~ J "And they will have pure wives in Jannat and they will mentions that these stay there forever. ,,26 Qatadah women will be pure from all external impurities such as menstruation, urine, excreta, and saliva. They will also be free from all evil internal qualities such as malice, hypocrisy, swearing, evil character, etc. Thus, they will not have within them the smallest amount of disobedience to their husbands. 27
lH.llL. ~ ~

There will be no jealousy between co-wives
Another interpretation of the verse "equal in age" is that the women of Jannat will all be equal in age, which will ensure that they get along with one another and make the believer's life peaceful. 24 It is normally the case in this world that co-wives have quarrels and arguments which make the husband's life miserable. However, in Jannat there will not be any jealousy, malice, or hatred between the people. A hadith in Sahih Bukhilri and Sahih Muslim mentions that the hearts of the people of Jannat will be one and there will not be any difference between them. Allah ~ also says in this regard, ~ ()A ~ JJ..l..a .) La ts. j.i -J "And we will take out all [mutual] hatred from their hearts. ,,25 This will ensure that all of a person's wives will get along and will never become jealous of one other.

The lovely skin colour of the women of Jannat
Allah ~ says, JF- -J "And they will have fair females with big, lovely eyes who will be like hidden pearls. ,,28 The women of Jannat will be like fresh pearls because of their cleanliness and fair skin colour.

Allamah Alusi explains that the verse refers to those eggs which human hands have not yet touched, so they are clean from any dirt or dust. In the same way, the hurs will be clean and free of all impurities. The comparison between the hurs and eggs is also made because of the yellow-whitish colour of both, which is known to be the most beautiful skin-colour for women. Another explanation for this comparison is that the parts of an egg are known for being perfectly proportioned and conforming to one another. In the same way, all the body parts and features of the hurs will go perfectly together. 30 Allah ~ says, 64-~1 J w~~1 ~LS these women are like rubies and small

Allah ~ has also compared the hurs to small pearls because of their softness, whiteness, and pleasant sight.32

What I said was just regarding her hand, so how beautiful will her white face be when it is adorned with a crown, ruby, pearl and emerald? ,,35

(411/10 Abdullah Ibn Masud narrates that Rasululah said, "Every person of Jannat will have two wives from the hurs. Every wife will have 70 layers of clothes, and the marroW of her leg can be seen through these clothes just as a red drink can be seen in a white glass." 39 Outwardly, a person may consider it repulsive and disgusting to see the marrow of the leg of the women of Jannat. However, one narration clarifies this matter and mentions that he will be able to see through her leg because of her beauty; not because of some defect in her. The purpose of mentioning this is to emphasize the softness of the skin, clearness, and the delicateness of the women of Jannat.40 Another benefit of being able to see through her clothes is that he will be able to enjoy looking at her beautiful clothes and what is underneath at the same time.

(7156) rL-o Abu Sa'id and Abu Hurayrah narrate that RasUlullah said, "[When the people will enter Jannat], a caller will announce, 'Definitely, for you is life; you will never die. For you is good health; you will never become sick. For you is youth; you will never grow old. For you is luxury and comfort, you will never experience difficulty. ,,43 Both the men and women of Jannat will remain young forever.

The people of Jannat will never grow old and will remain permanently at the age of 33.

Ibn Abi Dunya relates that Yazid Ar-Raqashi said, "I have heard that a light will shine in Jannat, and every part of Jannat will start shining because of this light. Someone will ask, 'Where did this light come from?' It will be said to him, 'One hur smiled at her husband.' The narrator Salih says," A man from the c'Jrner of the gathering started screaming and continued to scream until he died. ,,48

The beautiful faces of the women of Jannat
Allah ~ says,

By combining these two hadith, we can conclude that each man and woman of Jannat will have the beauty of half the people of this world. This will be the minimum beauty of the people of Jannat, as they will always be increasing in beauty. A'ta Salami said to Malik bin Dinar "Definitely, there is a particular hur in Jannat upon whose beauty the people of Jannat boast and brag. If Allah ~ had not allowed death for the people of Jannat, they would die because of her beauty. "46 Hakim met another person and asked him, "Do you have any desire for the hurs?" He said, "No." Hakim then told him, "Desire them, because the light on their faces is from the light of Allah." The man fell unconscious and was taken to his home. The narrator of the incident adds· that we visited to this person for one month after this incident [to console him during his sickness] .47

(541/ 4: ,-=-,*yJI) Abu Hurayrah .said to Said ibn Musayyab, "I ask Allah that he joins me and you in the market of Jannat. . . They will be enjoying themselves in Allah's company when suddenly a cloud will come over them and rain upon them a perfume which they will have never smelt before. Then our Lord will say to them, I Rise to the honour which I have prepared for you and take whatever you desire. I They will find a market surrounded by angels. In this marketplace, there will be what no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no heart has imagined. They will take whatever they desire without any buying or selling. The people of Jannat will meet each other in this market. A person with a good appearance will come b,fore one who is less beautiful than him - no one will have a bad appearance. The second person will like the clothes and appearance of the first person, and before they finish speaking, his appearance will become better than the first person This is because it is not appropriate for anyone to be unhappy in Jannat. Then we will return to our houses and our wives will receive us saying, 'Welcome. Definitely, you have come to us adorned with more beauty and perfume than before.' The dweller of Jannat will say, 'Today we were in the company of our Lord, so it is rightful that we return in such a [good] condition. ,,,51

OF JANNA T 39 THE MAIDENS OF JANNAT

Abdullah Ibn Masud

narrated this hadith to U'mar ibn

AI-Khattab "A door of Jannat will be opened for [the last person to enter Jannat), and he will say, '0 my Lord, enter me into this door.' AW'th will tell him, '0 My slave, it is possible that if I enter you through this door, you will ask Me for something else.' He will reply,' I take the oath of Your majesty and grandeur that I will not ask You for anything else if You enter me in this door.' He will enter this door and while he is amazed with what is in this first door, another door will be opened. The contents of the first door will;eem trivial to him and he will ask Allah again, '0 my Lord, enter me through this door.' AW'th will tell him, 'Didn't you say that you will not ask Me for anything else?' The person will say, 'I take the oath of Your majesty and grandeur that I will not ask You for anything else.' In this way, he will enter four more doors; each time asking to be entered into the new door. Then, he will be greeted by a person who is radiating with light. Upon seeing him, the dweller of Jannat will fall in prostration before him. The person with light radiating from him will ask the person, 'What is the matter with you?' He will answer, 'Are you not my Lord?" The person radiating with light will say, 'I am just one servant out of your thousand servants who oversee your one thousand palaces.' Between each palace is the distance of one year and he will be able to see the farthest palace just as he can see the closest palace. Then, a door made of green emerald will be opened for him in which there are 70 doors. In each door there will be wives, cushions, and servants. He will then sit with his wife and she will give him a cup [of wine]. She will say to him, ,You have increased in beauty 70 times from the time I gave you this cup.' He will say to her, 'You have also increased in beauty 70 times from the time you gave me this cup.' She will be wearing 70 different pairs of

clothes through which the marrow of her leg can be seen. ,,53

They will sing with the most beautiful voices that humans and jinn have ever heard. Their singing will not include musical instruments from shay tan, but it will comprise of hymns of praise and glory for Allah. ,,56

"And so it will be, and we will join them with the hurs. ,,57 Ibn Qayyim mentions that the contract of marriage between the believers and the hurs is not meant in the verse. Rather, the meaning is that Allah ~ will make the women of Jannat perfect pairs and partners for their husbands just as one shoe is made to be a pair for the

them who will be like preserved pearls and scattered pearls. They will inform the dweller of Jannat of what Allah has prepared for him and will go around serving him as friends would tend to each other in this world. One young boy will say to the dweller of Jannat, 'Be happy, because Allah has prepared for you this-andthis.' Then the boy will go to one wife from amongst the person's wives and tell her that your husband so-and-so has arrived (using the same name which he had in this world). She will be overtaken by joy and will stand on the doorstep saying, 'Did you really see him? ",60

and will not even raise their eyes to look at anyone else besides their husbands. Another interpretation of this verse is that these women will be so beautiful that they will keep their husband's glances fixed on them only. The women of Jannat will also have the same age as their husbands so that they can relate to each other better and have a perfect relationship. 63

The servants will also bring him 300 glasses and each glass will have a type of drink not found in the other. He will enjoy the last glass of drink just as he enjoyed the first. He will ask Allah, '0 my Lord, if you permit me to feed and give drink to all the people of the world, this would not decrease my kingdom in the least bit.'

Chapter 11: Huw to gain more wives in Jannat
Controlling one's anger
-.9

The ahadith mention different amounts of wives for each person in Jannat. In Sahih Bukhari it is mentioned, "Every person will have two wives." However, there is no contradiction between this hMith and other ahMith which state a person will have more than two wives. Hafiz ibn Hajar mentions that one interpretation of this hadIt11is that two is the minimum number of wives a person will have. Another interpretation is that the number two is also used in the Arabic language for a large quantity and greatness of something. Thus, the meaning here is not to fix an exact amount and limit for the number of wives a person will have.6g Mulla Ali Qari says that the best interpretation is that the two wives mentioned in this hadith refer to the women of this world and each person will have a minimum of 72 wives; 70 from the hurs and 2 from the humans. (,9 Where will a believer live with all his wives?

Thus, we should try to do as many good deeds in this world in order to enter Jannat and thereafter gain as many wives as possible. -----~

RO Hafiz bin Hajar ~ says that if the Tabi' (Person who saw the Sahabah) sometimes does not mention the final narrator of the hadith, but it is known that he only narrates from those narrators who arc reliable, then most scholars of hadlth along with Imam Ahmed do not pass a judgement regarding this hadith because of the possibility of it being acceptable and un-acceptable. However, such a narration (known as mursal) is accepted un-conditionally according to the scholars of KOJa, the followers of the Mftliki school of thought, and according to one view of Imam Ahmad.

A horse will be brought to them with a saddle and reins. (It will be ready to ride). This horse will not excrete and nor will he urinate. They will ride this horse until they reach the place which Allah desires. Then, they will come to a cloud which will contain is what no eye has seen and no ear has heard. The people of Jannat will ask this cloud to rain upon them [whatever they desire]. The cloud will continuously rain upon them [whatever they desire] until they receive that which they never imagined. Then, Allah will send a gentle wind and it will spread mounds of musk on their right and left. They will apply this musk on the foreheads and necks of their horses. They will also apply this musk on their own heads. Each man will keep his hair as long as he desires . This musk will stick to their hair, horses, and the rest of their clothes. They will keep proceeding on their animals until they reach the place which Allah desires. Then, suddenly a woman will call out to one of them, '0 slave of Allah, don't you have any desire for us?' He will ask her, 'What are you and who are you?' She will reply, 'I am your wife and beloved.' He will say to her, 'I did not know about you.' She will answer, 'Didn't you know that Allah said, "No person knows the joy which is hidden from them as a reward for their deeds. '" He will say , 'Yes, I swear by my Lord.' Then, it is possible that he becomes preoccupied with her for 40 years [having sexual intercourse]. [During this time], he will not turn his attention elsewhere and will not leave. His only concern will be the pleasure and honour which he is enjoying. ,,81

Abu Sa'eed Khudri narrates that RasululHlh said, "When a believer desires a child in Jannat, the pregnancy, birth, and growth of the child [to the age of 33] will be take place instantly. "xs The scholars have differed on whether or not there will bc childbirth in Jannat. Ibn Kathir says, "Tawus, Mujfthid, and IbrahIm An-NakhaI' hold the view that sexual intercourse will take place in Jannat without childbirth and this is correct. There will not be childbirth in Jannat because there will be no need for it. Childbirth is necessary in this world for the continuation of humanity, whereas in Jannat the objective is lasting pleasure. This is why there is no ejaculation of sperm during sexual intercourse in Jannat because it would end the pleasure. However, when the people of Jannat desire children, they will immediately receive children. This is because Allah ~ has said, "They will have in Jannat whatever they desire. In this way Do We reward the people who carry out Our commands and refrain from evil" (16:31)

(U3Y-! AbCI Hurayrah narrates that someone mentioned the martyrs by RasUlullfth and he said, "Before the ground can dry from the blood of the martyr, his two wives rush to him as if they are a breast-feeding camel who has found her lost child in an empty and barren land. Each woman will have a pair of clothes in her hand which will be better than the world and all it contains. "X7 This is an example to show that the love and excitement of the hurs for their martyred husbands will be like that of a breast-Jeeding camel who has found her baby camel. Another interpretation is that the tenderness and compassion of the hurs for their husbands will be like that of the mother-camel who - out of her love for her child - protects it from the sun in a barren there is no shade. land in which

Anas narrates that a black man came to Rasulullah and said, "0 Messenger of Allah, I am a black man with bad body odour and an ugly face. I c1on't have any wealth. If I fight against these people U' ,til l am killed, where will I be? RasUlullflh said, "In Janna1." So he fought until he was killed. The Prophet came to him and said, " Indeed Allah has brightened your face, made a good smell emerge from your body, and has increased said to him or to someone your wc(l!th." The Prophet else, "Definitely I saw his wife from the hurs take off his wool cloak and come between him and his cloak. ,,89

" He immediately went to his young camel, tied a rope to its leg, and joined RasUlullah and his Companions. He tried to bring his camel close to Rasulullah but the Companions prevented him. Rasulullah thereafter said, "Allow the person from Najd to come closer to me, because - by the oath of Allah - he is from the kings of Janna1." The bedouin then fought the enemy in the battle and was killed. The Prophet was informed about him and came to him. He sat by his head smiling happily, and then he turned away. We said, "0 Messenger of Allah. We saw you smiling happily, and then you turned away." He said, "I was happy because of the great honour of his soul to Allah ~, and I turned away because his wife from the hurs is by him now. ,,90

The importance of worldng towards Jannat
No one from amongst LIS has a guarantee that he will reach .Iannat. One hadlth in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim mentions that a person will do the actions of the people of .Iannat until he is only a hand-span away from .Iannat. Then, what is written for him will overtake him and he will cIa the actions of the people of Hell until he enters into hell. It is true that Allah has guaranteed to eventually enter into Jannat anyone who recites the Kalimah with sincerity, but no believer has a guarantee that he will leave this world in a state of iman. Therefore, it is necessary for every believer to constantly work to in order to die with iman. please Allah Allah

"And hasten towards forgiveness from Your Lord, and for a Jannat prepared for the pious, as wide as the heavens 94 and the earth." Ibn Abi Dunya narrates from Sulayman Ad-Darani that there was a youngster living in Iraq who used to worship Allah in abundance. He went on a journey with his friend to Makkah, and he would perform Salah when they would rest. When they would cat, he would fast. His friend put up with him until the journey ended and they were about to go their separate ways. Then, he said to him, "() my brother. Please tell me, why are you doing this?" He answered, "In my dream, I saw a·palace from Jannat. There was a brick of gold and a brick of silver. Where the building finished, there was a balcony made of ruby and a balcony made of emerald, Between these two balconies was a hur standing with her hair loose. She was wearing silver clothes which moved when she moved. She said, 'Work towards the pleasure of Allah to reach me.' By Allah, I am working towards the pleasure of Allah to reach her and this is why you see me fasting and performing Salah. ,,95

"Definitely, Allah has purchased the lives and wealth or the believers for the price of Jannat. They fight in the path of Allah, so they kill the enemy or are killed.

Sahl bin Sa'd narrates that RasfIlullah said, "He who guaranlccs me that he will protect his tongue and private parts (by protecting them from evil and fulfilling his desires lawfully), I will guarantee him Jannat.,,98

lbn Abbas narrates that RasnIullah said, "The person who falls in love, remains chaste, conceals this [from others], and dies is a shahid." Munawi explains that the love mentioned in the above hadith refers to a love with a woman with whom marriage is possible and it is such a severe love which affects all the body parts. Although this love could occur because of looking and hearing, this is not necessary because AlHih ~ can place this love in a person's heart without any apparent cause. The person who remains chaste despite being afflicted by this severe love and thereafter dies will receive the reward of a shahid in the hereafter. The rank of a person who remains chaste is similar to the rank of a person who dies fighting in the path of Allah ~ because hath have sacrificed their pleasure for the sake of AWih Just as a fighter sacrificed his life for the uplifment of [he religion of AWih, the chaste person strived against his desires for the sake of Alliih ~.99 The youth especially should strive to remain chaste in order to gain this virtue.

'[he meaning of this hadjth is that when a person has fear over losing something, he undertakes difficulty and hardship to secure and protect it. The most valuable object of a person is Jannat and pleasure of AlHih ~ in the hereafter. Therefore, the traveler on the journey of the hereafter should sacrifice his desires and comforts in fulfilling the commands of Allah ~. If people are willing to sacrifice years of effort, time, and money for a good life in this temporary world, then how much more sacrifice should be made for the permanent life of Jannat? The purpose of hearing about Jannat is to turn one's attention to the hereafter

THL MAIDENS OF JANNA'!'

If just the scarf on the head of one woman of Jannat is better than the world and all it contains, then how valuable is the woman herself? It becomes easier to sacrifice the desires in view of these great rewards of the Hereafter. Besides the promise of these eternal rewards of the Hereafter, there is little that can control the desires of man, especially the desires of the youth. In this book, some of the rewards of the Hereafter, especially those relating to the gorgeous, celestial, wideeyed beauties - the hurs - of Jannat, have been set out in a clear and concise manner. By reading and pondering about the bounties of Jannat and its beautiful virgins, the youth will feel a renewed vigour to fight the carnal desires and strive for the pleasure of Allah ~ by doing righteous deeds. Furthermore, the beauty of the women of this world will appear pale and insignificant before the beauty of those stunning damsels of fannal. There is not much authentic literature on this specific topic, and hence this book fulfills this requirement in a captivating way. I would recommend every youngster to acquire a copy of this book, to read it, and ponder over its contents.
