Why Muslim men have many fair ladies in heaven?

Bismillah Alrahman Alrahim:

The reward of fair ladies has been mentioned more than once in the Holy Quran, as in Surat Al-waaqiaa:


22- وحورٌ عينٌ 
23- كأمثال اللؤلؤ المكنون
24- جزاءاً بما كانوا يعملون

22 And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes,
23 Like unto hidden pearls,
24 Reward for what they used to do.


These verses have led some to think that the fair ladies will outreach Muslim women in the hearts of their spouses, or may replace them, but this is a corrupt understanding, which we'll clarify in this article, in Shaa Allah.

There is difference between Muslim women and the fair ladies created for Muslim men in Heaven.
The fair ladies are not in same grade as Muslim women, nor they are prettier.
The Muslim woman has the prevalence, she is far prettier than any other fair lady in heaven.


Why?

The reason is simple: the fair ladies are just created in heaven, obliged to be so, just like angels. While a Muslim woman CHOSE to obey Allah and please her husband for the sake of Allah, so she actually suffered for that, and Allah never puts her efforts in vain!
didn't you once knew that a pious Muslim is better than an Angel in Allah's sight?
Coz the Angel was created obliged to worship, but a human was created with ability to choose whether to worship Allah or not.

the fair ladies in heaven are not wives but servants, nothing is comparable to the real Muslim woman in heaven.

The woman in heaven is more like "the Lady of the Palace".I
n Heaven, time is countless and there are men who die unmarried as well. but in case of women, what is applicable in our life is the same in heaven,no man wishes to "share" his wife with others!this is against nature!



Suppose a Muslim woman hated her husband, would she live with him in Heaven?

First, we should know that no Muslim woman is to be forced to get married if she doesn't agree, nor is she forced to complete her life with a husband she hates. If you heard of that happening, the fault is not in the religion itself but in its followers, and also in their own cultural beliefs.

It is narrated that a woman called Barira was forced to get married to a man named Mughith, both were slaves to a single owner before Islam, then after they ran away and became Muslims, Barira wished to end this marriage though Mughith loved her very much and she had a son from him, she went to ask Prophet Muhammad about that, so he told her to pay him back his "mahr/a well announced possession given by the husband to his wife at the time of proposal, which then becomes her property, and is stated in her marriage contract". She did, since then people used to see Mughith walking behind Barira begging her to break her divorce, but she never did!

But suppose a woman lived with a husband whom she didn't like for any given reason, preferring not to get divorce, Then either one of two cases might happen:


1-The woman was rewarded with heaven while her husband wasn't (he was a disbeliever, like the Pharaoh's wife, Asia who was tortured after she believed Prophet Moses), Allah will satisfy her in Heaven, her reward is hidden for her, only Allah Knows how beautiful it is (scholars stated she might choose a husband in heaven)! Same for an unmarried and a divorced woman. ( I don't know nor I've the exact details of it, but what Allah hides is far better from what He shows)

2- Both were rewarded with heaven, but one dwells in a lower or a higher grade:
then the partner in the higher grade shall pull the other to the same grade, for the verse:

وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَٱتَّبَعَتْهُمْ ذُرِّيَّتُهُم بِإِيمَٰنٍ أَلْحَقْنَا بِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ وَمَآ أَلَتْنَٰهُم مِّنْ عَمَلِهِم مِّن شَىْءٍ ۚ كُلُّ ٱمْرِئٍۭ بِمَا كَسَبَ رَهِينٌ

52:21 And they who believe and whose seed follow them in faith, We cause their seed to join them (there), and We deprive them of nought of their (life's) work. Every man is a pledge for that which he hath earned.

In this case,
the corrupts in the personalities of some of us all are to be erased in heaven, if you hated somebody coz he did wrong to you, you simply forget that in heaven after he's been punished for what he did OR after you've forgiven him.

وَنَزَعْنَا مَا فِي صُدُورِهِمْ مِنْ غِلٍّ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهِمُ الْأَنْهَارُ ۖ وَقَالُوا الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِهَٰذَا وَمَا كُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِيَ لَوْلَا أَنْ هَدَانَا اللَّهُ ۖ لَقَدْ جَاءَتْ رُسُلُ رَبِّنَا بِالْحَقِّ ۖ وَنُودُوا أَنْ تِلْكُمُ الْجَنَّةُ أُورِثْتُمُوهَا بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ
7:43 And We remove whatever rancour may be in their hearts. Rivers flow beneath them. And they say: The praise to Allah, Who hath guided us to this. We could not truly have been led aright if Allah had not guided us. Verily the messengers of our Lord did bring the Truth. And it is cried unto them: This is the Garden. Ye inherit it for what ye used to do.

That's why we make duaa for the dead woman saying: 
"O'Allah grant her with a husband better than her husband", as believers in heaven are re-created in a prettier and purer form. Women return young virgin and men return strong youth.

But why wasn't this issue stated in the Noble Quran for Muslim women?
Coz the nature of the woman is to be shy, so these issues were not announced like other grants in heaven like food, drink, gardens and so on, which were obviously clarified to be for both men and women.

Islam is the religion of justice, so let no woman bother herself thinking of such an issue, let trust in Allah be our guide and motive. Allah knows best!

  1. very interesting and thought provoking. i am not sure about a lot of it, being that i am still learning about Islam and about what ALLAH has planned for his followers.

    but such a spoiler for a man who might really love his wife and then when he gets in heaven his wife says "i do not want to be with you anymore,i just wanted to make it to heaven that's the only reason i put up with you."

    that's what it feels like to me but i want to learn more about this now because i want to know what the difference is on earth and in heaven with women. because God said he created women from the rib of man for man as a companion. and then in heaven a woman does not need to have a man anymore it scares me because i do not want a angel servant who will not be my wife i want to be with my wife on earth and in heaven.

    so i just hope if my wife and i go to heaven and she is in a higher position she still wants to be with me and she brings me up to her level like that verse says.

  3. As-Salam Alaikom Brother Julian:

    Allah is all just and all Merciful, so don't worry about finding a wife refusing to live with her husband in Heaven, if she died and he was her last husband and she didn't get divorced from him.

    She won't be obliged to do that, but she will live in heaven with her same husband after both get clarified from sins and hatred, to be as if they are newly married in a garden where no sorrow nor pain shall be due!

    But I offered here the issue from all points just to fulfill the inquiries that emerge in the minds of some, and Allah knows best!

    Believe in what Allah promised His believer slaves, and never worry about anything whenever Allah is guarding your back!

    Thank you for your kind attention.
