The Hoor have a fair complexion and black eyes

Assalam-o Alaykom wa rahmatollah wa barakatoh. Peace be upon the prophet, his family and companions. I have a question. Many people says that houris will be blue-eyed and blond. Is this true? Walaykom assalam.


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.


The Hoor (the women of Paradise) are something of the Unseen and it is not possible to know their description except through Divine text. We do not know any evidence from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) which states that they are blond and blue-eyed. However, religious texts prove that they have a fair complexion and black eyes.

Allaah Knows best.
