I am no scholar
About Hoor al-'Ain... again, it's a choice as far as I understand. Watch Sheikh Assim al-'Hakeem speak about the maidens of the Paradise
First of all, there is no such thing as scholar in God's law. That title is being held by men who only love themselves and not God.
Secondly, there is no such things as sex maidens in heavens or geisha's or whatever derogatory term others might want to label the attendants in heaven. They all come from hadith, the idea of hoors being sexual gifts
In the quran, they are described as attendants- no speficic gender is given to them. As god is against filthy things/beleifs, homosexuality, zina....etc, there is no way God will be accepting these in heaven.
The idea of hoors in the eyes of so called mullahs are that they are just sex slaves. No matter how they try to dress it up by talking about how see through their bone marrow is or how red their lips are, they are still lusting after a beauty they can never have.
As for that man in that video who says, "A woman can only love one man and a man can love many women...,"
A believing man has no such dirty thoughts of women so obviously he has no lustful thoughts of other female creatures. If we look at society, there is also women cheating on men and having multiple lovers so that claim is biased and wrong. They too have boyfriends whom they think they loved just as men who think they loved their past girlfriends. The word love
is being used loosely in society these days.
Those who have multiple lovers (esp at the same time) are wrong and destroying the concept of soul-mates which Allah has granted as a blessing on mankind. (for existing monogamous couples)
"So it is, and We married them
to wonderful companions.
- notice the word them is used instead of men. Them- both men and women. The inhabitants of heaven will all be beautiful- even men will be stunning as promised in the Quran because they will be wonderful companions too. Everyone will have a spouse- that is a blessing of God.
It's not like a man will be reclining on sofas with multitude women by his side feeding him grapes and fanning him like a hip hop music video. That's a sight many heavily selfish men hold on this world.
Almost all the English quran translations have brackets in mentioning female hoors- that is because the translators are partial/biased and are hadith influenced. There are no brackets in the quran. No additions. Only a few say true to the quran like free-minds and Dr Laleh Bhaktiar's translation. One doesn't need to know arabic to figure out how God is like. It comes from the heart- when someone is clean and spiritually pure, they know what their maker is like. They know he is just, kind, merciful and benevolent.
It's another blessing Allah has given only to his believing servants who actually love and fear him rather than chasing material things in life which he thinks is more important.
Now many men who are sunni will say yes, there are hoors for men in heaven because that's what they want to believe. They want to think that God will give them Geishas. They claim to be honourable men and say that they deserve such female creatures PLUS having multiple human wives too that will be okay with it.
Here's what the Quran says about such men:
"Who is more wicked than he who invents lies about God
, or denies His revelations? These will receive their recompense from the record; so that when Our messengers come to terminate their lives, they will say: "Where are those whom you used to call on besides God?" They said: "They have abandoned us!" And they bore witness upon themselves that they were rejecters." (7:37)
God never supports injustice. And God has also mentioned this:
"And from His signs is that He created for you mates from yourselves that you may reside with them, and He placed between you affection and mercy
. In that are signs for a people who reflect." (30:21)
This can only happen with a man and a woman who are faithful to each other.
Those men who disagree with the Quran and agree with hadith on this should remember, God knows whats in the hearts of everyone. There is no hiding- even if one deludes themselves. One might claim to be a good man (e.g. those scholars) but they are so deluded that Allah is simply "making their work look pleasing to them" just in this world as claimed in the Quran.
"As for he whose evil work is adorned for him so he sees it as being good; for God thus misguides whom He wills, and He guides whom He wills. So do not let yourself grieve over them. God is fully aware of what they are doing." (35:8)
