Al-Hoor Al-’Ayn, Guarded In Pavilions, Away From The Eyes Of Other Men

Al-Hoor Al-’Ayn are described as being guarded in pavilions, away from the eyes of men.

Allaah says:

Hoor (beautiful, fair females) guarded in pavilions.” [55:72]

According to Mujaahid, what this means is that the Al-Hoor Al-’Ayn will not go out of their pavilions. He goes on to say that they will not be like the women of this world who roam about the streets and market places. They (Al-Hor Al-’Ayn) will honorably stay with their husbands. (1)

Though they are primarily restrained in the pavilions, they will, however, accompany their husbands to the gardens and parks for amusement.(2)

A Quick Note To Sisters:

Some sisters complain that their husbands daydream about Al-Hoor Al-’Ayn, yet fail to question and/or investigate why. Allaah has mentioned many qualities of Al-Hoor Al-’Ayn which just blow a mans mind away.

For example, they restrain their glances, they passionately love their husbands, they care for them, and as mentioned by Mujaahid (above), they don’t go out, honorably staying at home, without any fuss. Restraining their eyesightes from seeing other men, as well as keeping far away from being seen by other men.

Not knowing any other man, not even seeing other men! Loving their husbands, and loving their husbands only. Living with them in peace, love and compassion, fulfilling his needs, showing no disappointment at his wishes. Allaahu Akbar!

The Four Keys To Jannah

The Prophet sallaallaahu alayhi wa sallaam said:

When a woman (a) observes her five obligatory prayers, (b) fasts during Ramadan, (c) preserves her chastity and (d) obeys her husband, she may enter by any gate of Paradise she wishes.

Reported by Ibn Hibban, al-Bazzaar, Imam Ahmed Ibn Hanbal, at-Tabarani and Al-Albaani.

‘Umar’s Protective Jealousy With His Wives

‘Umar’s Palace In Jannah

The Messenger of Allaah said:

I saw myself (in a dream) entering Paradise, and there I saw Ar-Rumaysa’ – the wife of Abu Talhah – and I heard the sound of footsteps. I said, “Who is this?” He said, “It is Bilal.” And I saw a palace, in the courtyard of which there was a young woman. I said, “Whose (palace) is this?” They said, “(It is) ‘Umar’s.” I wanted to go in and look around, but then I remembered your protective jealousy.

‘Umar said, “May my father and mother be sacrificed for you, O’ Messenger of Allaah! Would I feel jealous towards you?

[Narrated by Muslim 2394, and Bukhaari 3476 & 6620]

According to another report the Messenger of Allaah said:

Chastity, By Imâm Al-Haram, Husayn Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Azîz Aal Sheikh

All praise is due to Allah. I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, his household and companions.

Fellow Muslims! The religion of Islam was revealed complete in order to perfect Allah’s blessings on mankind, and guarantee the highest form of grace and kindness. It orders that conditions be improved, and that people be generous. It warns against useless and time-wasting speech and actions. It brought all that can beautify the slave of Allah, and decorate him, and all that can distance him from anything that may defile him and disgrace him.

The Prophet said,

Allah is generous and gracious, and he loves the generous, gracious people, and He loves the ones who strive to better the state of affairs and He hates useless and time-wasting speech and actions.” (At-Tabarani)

One of Islam’s greatest goals is to establish the abstention from what is forbidden, create virtuousness, purity and to implant good-doing and charity in the community, and the distancing from vice and indecency. And from here Islam has been careful to distance people from their animalistic desires and Satanic manners.

Allah says,

And let those who find not the financial means for marriage keep themselves chaste until Allah enriches them of His Bounty.” (An-Noor 24: 33)

He also says,

But to refrain (i.e. not to discard their outer clothing) is better for them. And Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.” (An-Noor 24: 60)
