Fatwa No: 26953

Question

Will single women in this worldly life have husbands in Paradise?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His Slave and Messenger.

There will be no single women or men in Paradise. It was narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayrah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said that there would be no unmarried people in Paradise. [Muslim] Therefore, there will be no single women in Paradise, not even those women who were divorced, widowed, or who died before marrying in this worldly life.

Anyway, Paradise is a place that Allaah has prepared for the prosperity of His slaves and it is free from any defect. Allaah the Almighty Says (what means): {And therein is whatever the souls desire and [what] delights the eyes, and you will abide therein eternally.} [Quran 43: 71]

We ask Allaah to be among its dwellers.

Allaah Knows best.
