Salam Alakum,

Can anybody tell me if there has been any detailed descriptions of What Huri's are?

Are Huri's for both men and women? And what catagory do they come under? i.e. Angels? Jinn? Human like?

Also would there be any intercourse in Jannah? Since I heard its something that would not take place?

Any information on the above with be appreciated...

Can I ask Moderator's to monitor this thread! - I would like mature answers.

(salam),

A description of Houris is given in the Quran:

  • They will have maidens with large, lovely black and white eyes, (56:22) like pearls preserved in their shells, (56:23) as reward for their deeds (56:24).
  • We shall unite them to maidens with big black and white lovely eyes (44:54).
  • They will recline on couches arranged in rows and We shall couple them with maidens with large, lovely eyes (52:20).
  • They will have gardens and vineyards, (78:32) maidens with pears-shaped breasts who are of equal age (to their spouses) (78:33) and cups full of wine (78:34).
  • and the noble maidens (56:35) that We have created (for the people of the right hand) (56:36). We have made them virgins, (56:37) loving and of equal age (56:38).
  • There will be well-disciplined, beautiful maidens (55:70). - jinn and mankind - which of the favors of your Lord would you then deny (55:71) - with big, black and white beautiful eyes, dwelling in tents (55:72)- jinn and mankind - which of the favors of your Lord would you then deny (55:73) - untouched by jinn or mankind before (55:74). (Jinn and mankind) - which of the favors of your Lord would you then deny? (55:75).
  • There will be bashful maidens untouched by mankind or jinn before (55:56). jinn and mankindîwhich of the favors of your Lord would you then deny (55:57) who are as beautiful as rubies and pearls (55:58).
  • These fruits are produced very much like them (those we had before)." They will have purified spouses and it is they who will live forever (2:25).

Also, the above four sets of verses state that all Houris will be virgins. There is no point in mentioning that they were virgins, if it were not as a reward, and what's the point of them being virgins, if there is no intercourse? Hence, it is hinted that sexual intercourse will happen in Heaven. However, perhaps, no Najast will be involved, and Allah knows best. Also, intercourse in heaven is hinted in the following verse:

We are your guardians in this world's life and in the hereafter, and you shall have therein what your souls desire and you shall have therein what you ask for (41:31)

Houris are for men, as whenever Houris are mentioned, they are for a 'he' and never a 'she' but for women there is an equivalent delight. By His great wisdom, Allah has not mentioned what the women will have as the equivalent of Houris for men, and that is due to modesty and shyness. How can He encourage them to seek Paradise by mentioning something that they are too shy and modest to mention or speak about themselves? So He has simply hinted at it, as in the above verse,'...you shall have therein what your souls desire...'.

Wow, sex more pleasurable then tasting God's love, gazing on the Glories of his face, more pleasurable then seeing Imam Hussain (as)...

I guess animals have a higher pleasure then Angels (as)!

man is not an angel, but they have what angels have. The outward manifestation of gazing at the glories of His face, will be all these physical pleasures in paradise. so, the physical pleasures of paradise, and the nearness of God will be two aspects of the same reality (one outward the other inward).

what kind of argument is that, why couldn't we have all of that together, afterall its paradise right ?

its like saying I can eat but i can't drink what the hell ?

i can eat whatever i want, i can drink as much as i want, i can talk to anyone i want, i can have as many beautiful wives but i can't have sex ?

and comparing humans to angels isn't really a good thing to do. angels will not do the same thing as we humans do.

some people amaze me

I dont think the brother is saying we cannot have all togetehr.

he is saying that seeing the glories of God;s face will be more pleasurable that sex. in a sense he is correct, but, i still think the tradition seems correct. because sex (the outward garden) can be the outward manifestation of the inward garden (gazing at the glories of God).

Is it true that the size of Paradise for each person who enter's Paradise would be the size of this earth?

Will there be any kind of restrictions in Paradise?

Since it has been stated that One cannot fathom what Paradise is nor what Hell is but only descriptions that help man to realise what awaits Him are shown through Ayats and Hadiths.

Will Huri's Look like Human Beings? Since I think we will not have this type of body in Paradise as its made to become dust with the Earth when we die.

Also since Pleasure of any type is never ending, what is the need of more than 1 Huri? I dont understand that.

Will one Huri be more beautiful than the first? Doesnt that make something negative? Does Negativity Exist in Paradise?

Sorry if the above doesnt make sense, hope your brothers/sisters can clarify this for me,

This is an excellent summary and the meaning seems perfectly clear and most satisfactory. Remember, what is too much for us to hope for here on Earth will be the reward for the righteous in the Gardens.

The Outward only Manifests the Inward when you remember the it's a Tanzeel and having deficiency. For people not recall the Inward of the outward, the outward is nothing but decpetion, darkness, and turning away from God, and veils and veils of darkness! Now having said that, ofcourse in paradise we remember the Inward, but how can these animal experiences be compared to experiences where no Angel (as) can go, where Mohammad (pbuh) witnessed the high Signs of Allah, this is what is meant by "return to where we are" in Misbahal Shariah.

The more closer to the Inward, the more pleasurable, and in fact they unite on Glory and pleasures what is below and this is what is hinted in Quran of having the same as what was given before.

Therefore scenting Imam Hussain (as) (from whatever distance!) is atleast a Zillion times more pleasurable then all sex of humanity, jinn and animals combined... and what God has cannot even be compared to that, and comparison would make it nothing.

by the way, if you want to know what the Kawthar is, it's every gain, every thing sought, by all creation....

Therefore you can have it all if you drink from the Kawthar... That river in Paradise unites all pleasures and honors and beauty ever hoped for by all people whom sought this world and hoped for other then Allah, so please understand this!

All the other stuff, it doesn't matter, take it as a gift from God and love the gift because of the Giver... if you ask for it, ask for it hoping in God's love and grace in giving it, not the actual gift.

Do you really think God condemns love of the world so much that a person wanting can't enter paradise and is promised Punishment, that he turns just wants us to hope for the very same things in the world but in more quantity and for ever lasting periods? Does that make sense...

Or does it make sense the Akhira is a holy place where holy foods and pleasures are given, and that in fact, all these descriptions are true but taken on higher sublimal realities.. infact Tabatabai (qas) said something on those lines, that these descriptions are just made for us to relate to the those higher Unseen pleasures promised in paradise... it doesn't take the truth of the statements at all, because it's exactly what is being said, but in higher reality.

We dont' understand the nature of the unseen world (including heaven and hell) except for what the Prophets and Imams have told us because we have no experience with the laws of the other world and how things work there. We have to rely on what has been told to us. We can guess how literal or metaphorical it is, but it won't help us in understanding the reality because are just speculating.

Inshallah we will one day reach there and then we will understand what is meant.

(salam),

Why do you need to know all this? Are you in a debate or anything? :huh:

As for answering the questions... I am not scholar, but I will try to answer them to the best of my knowledge.

Paradise is a reward. We can not comprehend the size or quality or all the wonder of Jannah, however we have been given hints and short description, so that a person may direct his actions towards attaining this. If the reward is not known, one would not want to get it. I believe, the descriptions (in Quran and Hadith) are true, but incomplete. The complete knowledge of the Hereafter is known only to Allah.

So the question, 'How big Paradise is' is an irrational question. We know not how big Paradise is, but what we do know is that there will be no discomfort, or congestion. It is also sometimes described that Paradise is as wide as the width of Earth and heavens, though.

About the restrictions, what restrictions are you talking about? As in what restriction? Like...?

Since Huris will be given to the righteous among the Humans and Jinns, it is likely that it will be such a being that will be attractive to both men and Jinns. So, perhaps, it will be neither, a jinn or a human being, but something else.

Why more than one Houris? Perhaps, because man is not satisfied with one... why do you think one will be more beautiful than the other? They can be different, but...

(salam),

He is going to be satisfied, that's the whole point of having more than one maiden(s). There will be complete satisfaction in Paradise (Inshallah) but that doesn't necessarily mean that we will only have one of each type of item to satisfy our need. Everything will be more in number than we need, maidens, fruit, cups of wine, gardens, etc. Allah knows best. :)

Define physical?

In a dream, we can experience some level of intercourse (ofcourse it's not as intense as real life), would that be physical? And what makes spiritual experience less physical?

What I understand is that the next world cannot really be imagined by us, yes there are trees, fruits, hooral ayn, but are these like we understand in this world? Can they really be imagined?

Let us ask some questions, when God says if people kept up revelation, they would have ate from beneath them and above them, is this referring to normal food, or a higher level of food? Would that type of eating be less real then physical eating? What I understand is both of them are real.

If you mean by physical, is if there is lower type of experiences there as what we are limited to now, I don't deny the possibility but I have to ask why? Musa (as) people said they wanted much type of foods instead of the one they were getting from heaven, which is what one type, yet Musa (as) said why do they exchange what is worse for what is better?

If the higher realms and experiences combine all pleasures in the lower experience, why would you want the lower experience as well? This is what does not make sense to me.

And for Shias to be literal about every word, then what about the word "family"... We given it a meaning that has similitude with original meaning, but makes the family of Mohammad (pbuh) from a higher outlook calling into higher realities and higher degree of relationship to be really just the Ma'asoomeen. But by the normal usage of the word, family includes more then that for sure.

So when we think of beautiful eyes and beautiful houris, why can't it be true, but at the same seen in light of higher reality to the words, just like "family"...

It's the same with Kawthar being a river, I don't think people think it's like a river we know of, obviously it is a river but from a view point of higher reality...

Why would we prefer what is lower to what is higher? This the question. The only way I see it possibly is if our animal self can never want anything beyond the lower realm of animals, but this is not what I believe, I believe that self, that howa, can become the greatest ally once taught and trained and become a buraq. But it has to realize all it desires is in the higher realms, so as to want to travel to there. This is where the battle comes from Ruhal Iman and al-Qudoos with that of the devils and forms of dark deeds, this is where we have to convince our self, and every Takbeer should belittle all manifestations of lower realms and put them at higher form in higher realms, and specially keep in mind the Manifested and the Inward to all Glory. The Ultimate peace and Rithwan, which misses no Rithwan and peace.

I THINK EVERYONE HERE IS MAKING FUN OF JANNAT/PARADISE AND Allah'S PROMISE AND CREATURE (HOOR/HURI).

VERY SAD

This is why you must not judge your brother Muslims. You are human and make mistakes like this. I for one was not making a joke when I responded in this thread, and it's not my perception that others were either. Rather each person seems to be discussing according to his understanding. Leave judgment of the people to Allah alone.

Salaam alaikum,

So does that mean our 5 senses, touch, smell, taste, see, hear will all be on a totally different level in Jannah? I believe everything that we will experience in Jannah will indeed be in manifold, which our senses in this world are unable to comprehend.

I think just the way a baby in the womb is able to eat and drink without excrement, so shall the dwellers of Paradise. Hence if intercourse does take place it will be minus the najasat.

I guess this is the lowest level of our senses, which are tailored towards this world, hence it will go up a notch in the barzakh World - the pain and pleasure will be greater - and then go up a notch on a day of Judgement - where pain and pleasure is even greater than Barzakh world! - And will reach its maximum without decreasing in Paradise!

Subhanallah!

indeed that we cannot sense with our 5 senses - is something to look forward to pleasure wise - pain well lets hope we can repent before we are subjected to pain!

actually this is a serious question, and a difficult one. because it can not be answered logically since nobody ever has slight experience of it, furthermore, it can not be answered scientifically since paradise and hell fire were not discovered in a laboratory.

man interact with his environment through the five (or six) senses of which all have limitations,hence if subjected to the task beyond their limit, they will tell lie.

e.g ask your eyes to tell you where the sky ends, it will tell you the sky descends down to earth in a distance of few kilometers from where you stand (LIE!).

all what the senses gathered goes to the brain for interpretation.

as the center for will power, judgment, reasoning and imagination , the brain also has a limit which if subjected beyond, the result will be a lie.

so as with this matter, we have no option than to rely on the holy scripture (Quran) and the saying of the Prophet SAWA and the pure Imams from his Household as the sources where we first hear about reward with paradise.

Allah knows best.

They have lied.

9448 - 10 - عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن أبي عبدالله البرقي، عن الحسن بن أبي قتادة، عن رجل، عن جميل بن دراج قال: قال أبوعبدالله (ع): ماتلذذ الناس في الدنيا والاخرة بلذة أكثر لهم من لذة النساء وهو قول الله عزوجل: " زين للناس حب الشهوات من النساء والبنين - إلى آخر الاية - " (5) ثم قال: وإن أهل الجنة مايتلذذون بشئ من الجنة أشهى عندهم من النكاح لاطعام ولاشراب.

A group of our companions from Ahmad b. Abi `Abdillah al-Barqi from al-Hasan b. Abi Qutada from a man from Jamil b. Darraj. He said: Abu `Abdillah (as) said: Mankind does not get pleasure in the dunya and the akhira with a pleaure more than the pleasure of women, and it is the saying of Allah, `azza wa jalla: Made beautiful for mankind is the love of desires from women and sons – until the end of the ayat. Then he said: And the people of the Garden do not get pleasure from anything in the Garden more desirous to them than nikah (sex), not food and not drink.

the thing with this hadith and others like it; if we assume that the greatest joy in heaven is copulation, is it similar to the earthy joys of copulation and would it be fair to say even kafirs in dunya experienced the best of Allah's heavenly rewards?

my opinion is that Allah's rewards that he gives us and the joys we experience in jannah are magnified multiple-fold for his righteous servants. i think i read that one foot size in heaven is better than the world and everything in it.

kind of like how they say heaven has different levels. maybe each level has different sensitivities. i like the example of how many foreigners dream to come to USA and think just any place in america is 'heavenly.' but then you see some of the lower class neighborhood and then they're in for a rude awakening. i'm not saying heaven has it's lower class sections or the likes of this but the same way we mumin should seek to get to the higher levels of jannah iA near Rasool, Imam Ali, and Prophet Ibrahim. if i remember correctly i think it's said they'll be at the highest levels.

salaam alaikum,

I agree that we should all be aiming to be in the higest level of Jannah - but is there any hadith or aya that explains how Jannat will be experienced?

Are there any other sense's then our 5 senses - which will be used in heaven/hell?

I do not think that NIkah (Intercourse) will be the greatest desire in Heaven - but rather being in a mehfil of the Imams and having that knowledge in Heaven would be the greatest pleasure.

If you look at variety of verses... you will see the following facts:

1) What is with us perishes.

2) God's Friends don't like that which perishes.

3) All persishes except God's face.

4) All perishes but is with God.

5) wanting God, his Messenger, and Akheera is praised

6) The Truly Virtuous only want God's face as a reward.

7) The people know "the outward of this world" while ignorant of the next (implies it's the inward)..

8) What God has allowed is in fact "his Zaina" "God's Adorment"...that he has Brought out for his servants.(the brought out implies also there is Inward to this).

9) What remains with God is better for us if we are believers. (and hadiths show this is Ahlebayt (as)).

10) The Kawthar implies "the Abundance", thus nothing sought having value can be missing in that and we know it's likened to be a river and we been told whom drinks from it will not be thirsty .

11) God doesn't wish to keep anything from Ahlebayt (as) but the impurities/uncleanness.

12) The treasures of all things are with God and he doesn't bring down but in measurement.

So even if we have these outward pleasures, obviously we should be attached only to the Unseen connection, which will be the real source of our peace and pleasure. In other words, we should not hold on other then "Wajhallah", and thinking other then that will bring us peace. We should convince ourselves like Ibrahim (as) "I do not love that which perishes".
