Will We Be Able to Have Beards and Body Hair in Janna if We Want To?

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel


I think a narration says that we will not have body and facial hair in Janna; please correct me if I’m wrong. I just wanted to ask; would it be possible to have a beard and body hair in Janna if one wants it?

This question is out of genuine curiosity inspired by that hadith; whether we will have body and facial hair in Janna makes no difference to me. I trust entirely Allah Most High. If we insha Allah enter Janna, we will certainly, without a doubt, be satisfied beyond comprehension; thank you for reading. May Allah Most High reward you abundantly for your efforts.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

I pray you are in good faith and health. Thank you for your question.

Yes, one can wish for whatever one desires, even if he wants a beard or hairy body like this world in Paradise.

Believers Enter Paradise as Young, Beautiful

Mu’adh ibn Jabal (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “The people of Paradise will enter Paradise with smooth and hairless skin, kohl upon their eyes, at thirty or thirty-three years of age.” [Tirmidhi]

With our limited understanding, we cannot grasp the true measure of pleasure and eternal bliss believers will be granted and what it will be like. However, we have been given a picture through our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) about infinite joys, peace, fulfillment, and ultimately, the greatest gift, gazing upon the countenance of our Lord.

We pray Allah Most High to grant us all Jannat al-Firdaws and gather us all with our parents, grandparents, spouses, children, family, friends, and believing men and women, Amin.
