Thank you for your email

It is mentioned in some of our narrations that those who will go to jannah will have a white face.
This is an idiom in arabic language meaning those people whose face will look white and bright . Their good deeds will have an effect on their faces which will make them look brighter (noorani).
There is another explanation for this, you can check on this site :
