How Does the Reward of Women in Paradise Compare to the Reward of Men?

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question

How does the reward of women in Paradise compare to the reward of men?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

It is sufficient to realize the words of Allah:

“They shall have whatever they wish with their Lord.” [Quran, 39:34]

In Paradise, if we wish for something, it will be there before us, and no one will find anything less than everything they could possibly seek. Allah will inspire each to seek what is good, in accordance with their sincerity and spiritual striving in this life.

However, what we should worry about is getting there, by working to be of those of sincerity and spiritual striving.

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
