The Fair Females with wide lovely eyes-The Women of Paradise

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

The reason behind the description of the women of Paradise is so that one is made eager to perform righteous actions.

The beauty of the Hoor Al’Ain [the fair females with wide lovely eyes in Jannah] is neither viewed from one perspective nor is any mind able to comprehend it. Those fair females with wide lovely eyes combine between beauty in their physical form, beauty in all other traits and good manners. One is amazed by their beauty whenever he glances at them because their beauty is always renewed. They have that glitter in their smile for their husbands, which has no similarity in this worldly life, then what does one think if he were to kiss them and taste the enjoyment from that kiss?

Sexual intercourse in this worldly life becomes tiresome and leads to weakness after some time as opposed to sexual intercourse with the women of paradise- because sexual intercourse with the women of Paradise makes a person more lively and active. A man’s wife in Paradise will neither be bored nor tired. Likewise, the virginity of the women of Paradise will not be lost permanently like the virginity of the women of this worldly life, rather whenever the women of Paradise are disvirgined, their virginities are renewed and the man’s reproductive organ is always erected [i.e. during sexual intercourss]. The men of paradise are given the strength of a hundred men put together; so whoever preserves his private parts, guards his eye sight and his hearing from the forbidden, he will be from the people with the most strength in Paradise and he will receive the most enjoyment in sexual intercourse.

Likewise, sometimes argumentation, differing and trouble occurs between married couples leading to divorce; however none of this will take place between the spouses in Paradise.

Traveller prayed with residents – Shaykh Saalih Al-Luhaydaan

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Shaykh Saalih Al-Luhaydaan حفظه الله was asked:

A traveller came upon a people, whilst he was a traveller and found them praying Asr, they had prayed two units of prayer, he joined with them the (remaining) two units of prayer; does he give the salaams (finish the prayer) or does he complete (4 units)?

Shaykh Saalih Al-Luhaydaan answers:

Rather he completes, the traveller if he joins with the residents his prayer is a residents prayer, that which he reaches of the prayer he prays, and that which he missed of it, he completes.

[1]Advice Number 22: Prohibition against 8 Sicknesses in Societies–Sh Ali Bin Sh Zaid

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

The First Sickness: Mockery

It is to belittle the people, making fun of them and encroaching upon their rights. Indeed Allaah has warned (us) against committing this crime that occurs from those who are conceited with themselves and look down on others.  Allaah (The Most High) said:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلَا نِسَاءٌ مِّن نِّسَاءٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ

”O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former.” [Al-Hujuraat: Ayah: 11]

[This ayah] is imposed as prohibition against men and then to women; because this vile action occurs from all (i.e. men and women).  The mocker does not stop at belittling the creation; rather he goes further in rejecting the truth, as it has been established in the authentic hadeeth from the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) that he said:

‘’Pride is to reject the truth and looking down on the people.’’ [Reported by Muslim: Kitaab Al-Eemaan; Chapter: Prohibition against pride and its clarification: 1/91, page: 93]
