    The reward for women in Paradise

    Question: Whenever I read the Noble Qur.aan, I find in many verses Allaah giving glad tidings to His believing male servants of al-hoor al-'ayn who extol in beauty. Does the woman have any partner in Paradise other than her husband? Furthermore, most of the statements concerning bounties in Paradise are directed toward the believing men. Is the reward of the believing women in Paradise less than that of the believing men?

    Response: There is no doubt that reward in the Hereafter encompasses both men and women. This is based on the following statements of Allaah:

    {Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, male or female}, [Soorah Aal-'lmraan, Aayah 195].

    {Whosoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while he(or she) is a true believer, We will give a good life}, [Soorah an-Nahl, Aayah 97].

    {And whoever does righteous good deeds, being a male or a female, and is a true believer, such will enter Paradise}, [Soorah an-Nisaa., Aayah 124].

    {Verily, the Muslims, men and women, the believers, men and women...} up to the end of the verse where Allaah says: {Allaah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward}, [Soorah al-Ahzaab, Aayah 35].

    Allaah mentions them entering into Paradise together:

    {They and their wives will be in pleasant shade}, [Soorah Yaa Seen, Aayah 56].

    Also:

    {Enter Paradise, you and your wives, in happiness}, [Soorah az-Zukhruf, Aayah 70].

    Allaah also mentions that He will-recreate the women in the verse:

    {Verily, We created them of special creation and made them virgins}, [Soorah al-Waaqi'ah, Aayah 35-36].

    That is, Allaah will recreate the elderly women and make them virgins.

    Similarly, Allaah will recreate the elderly men and make them youths. It is also mentioned in the hadeeth that the women of this worldly life have a superiority over al-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 a number of husbands and she enters Paradise with them, she will choose among them and will choose the one with the best character and behaviour.

        Muslims believe in all the four books. These four books including Quran are from Allah. We have faith in all of them being the words of Allah alone conveyed to the Prophets from Allah by the arch angel Gabraiel. This angel was a messenger between Allah and the Prophets. The last Prophet was Mohammed.
