What is there for the women? Answer: Allaah – Tabarak wa Ta’ala – said concerning the bliss of the people of Paradise: “Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask for. An entertainment from (Allaah), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”[Fussilat : 31-32] And the Most High said: “(There will be) therein all that the one’s inner-selves could desire, all that the eyes could delight in, and you will abide therein forever.” [Az-Zukhruf : 71] And from what is known is that the marriage, that is most befitting for what the soul (truly) desires, then it will take place in Paradise for the people of Paradise, whether they be male or female. And the woman, Allaah – Tabarak wa Ta’ala – will marry her in Paradise to her husband, the one who was her husband in the Dunya. And He also said: “Our Lord! And make them enter the ‘Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) which you have promised them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their offspring! Verily, You are the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.” [Ghafir : 8]
