The first type is the human woman of the world who will be re-created according to the beauty of Heaven. Al-Mighty-Allah says, “We created them as a new creation. And we made them virgins, loving to their husbands, equal in age.” (56:35-37)
Allah will make old women into young women & nonvirgins into virgins. No matter how their appearance was in this world, Al-Mighty-Allah will make them all beautiful & good-looking in accordance to the beauty of Heaven. (Safwatut Tafaseer 3/309 – Darul Qalam, Beirut)
What will a woman of this world receive in Heaven?
Mufti Mahmood was asked that if men will receive hoors, what women will 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 hoors) & Al-Mighty-Allah will join both of them in marriage. (Fatawa Muhmmadiya 5/298). Allamah Alus also mentions in his tafseer that a person’s wife in this world will remain his wife in the hereafter. 20 The love between a Muslim husband & wife is a true love because it will last forever. (Ruhul Mani 25/ 136 – Dar Ihya At-Tawrath AI-A’rabi, Beirut)
Superiority of the human women over the hoors
Umme Salama narrates that she said to Prophet (Pbuh) “0 Prophet, are the women of this world superior or the hoors?” He replied, “The women of this world will have superiority over the hoors just as the outer lining of a garment has superiority over the inner lining.” Umme Salama then asked, “0 Prophet, what is the reason for this?” He answered, “Because they performed salat, fasted, & worshipped [Allah]. Allah-Ta’ala will put light on their faces & silk on their bodies. [The human women] will be fair in complexion & will wear green clothing & yellow jewelry. Their incense-burners will be made of pearls & their combs will be of gold. They will say, ‘We are the women who will stay forever & we will never die. We are the women who will always remain in comfort & we will never undergo difficulty. We are the women who will stay & we will never leave. Listen, we are happy women & we will never become sad. Glad tidings to those men for whom we are & who are for us. (Tabrani).Allah-Ta’la will make the women of this world more beautiful & attractive than the hoors. Wherever in this book the ‘women of Heaven ‘ are mentioned, both the hoors & the human women could be meant.
The second type of women will be those celestial women specially created for the people of Heaven known as the Hoora’yn. A Hoor is a young, beautiful, fair-skinned woman with intensely dark eyes. Another interpretation is that there will be a sharp contrast between the whiteness & darkness of her eyes which is considered to very beautiful. Or it could also mean that her beauty will dumbfound & astonish others. The meaning of a’yn is a woman with big, attractive eyes, which is also considered a sign of beauty. (Hadiyul Arwah 259 – Darul Kutubul A’raby, Beirut)

The following is a narration of two Sahaba (Companions of the Prophet), it is narrated from Ibn Abbas Anas Abu Salama & Mujahid that the hoors will be created from saffron. Saffron is an orange-colored product extracted from a flower & it is used to add color & flavor to food. When the present creation of mankind (which is created from sand ) has the best of forms & beauty, then you can imagine the beauty of women created from saffron! (Hadiyul Arwah).
There will be no jealousy between co-wives another interpretation of the verse “equal in age” is that the women of Heaven will all be equal in age, which will ensure that they get along with one another & make the believer’s life peaceful. (Ruhul Mani 13/220)
It is normally the case in this world that co-wives have quarrels & arguments which make the husband’s life miserable. However, in Heaven there will not be any jealousy, malice, or hatred between the people. A hadith in Saheeh Bukhilri & Saheeh Muslim mentions that the hearts of the people of Heaven will be one & there will not be any difference between them. Al-Mighty-Allah also says in this regard, and we will take out all [mutual] hatred from their hearts. (7:43)
Appeal: Being a Muslim it is must to spread saying (Ahadith) of Prophet (PBUH) to each and every one for which one will be rewarded both in this world and life hereafter.
