Marriage in Jannah


Assalam O Alaikum.
Start with the name of Allah who is Kind and Most Merciful.

My name is Haisam and I wanted to ask some questions about Marriage in Jannah.
Qs.1. As we all know that, we will enter Jannah with our wives and also that we can wish for anything in Jannah, Is that possible that we can wish to marry any other woman?

Qs.2. If we can wish to marry any woman then how many marriages Can we do there? Is there a limit?

Qs.3. Is it possible that I can live alone in Jannah (without wives) if I wish for it?

Qs.4. (Accept my apologies if this Qs. Sounds childish or irrelevant to you) My friend wanted to know that is Jannah the place where we can even marry Non-Realistic girls (Animated girls)?

Thank you so much for your time sir.


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

فَلَا تَعْلَمُ نَفْسٌ مَّآ أُخْفِىَ لَهُم مِّن قُرَّةِ أَعْيُنٍ جَزَآءً بِمَا كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ‏

So no soul knows what is hidden for them of that which will refresh the eyes; a reward for what they did. (32:17)

الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ بِآيَاتِنَا وَكَانُواْ مُسْلِمِينَ * ادْخُلُواْ الْجَنَّةَ أَنتُمْ وَأَزْوَاجُكُمْ تُحْبَرُونَ‏ * يُطَافُ عَلَيْهِم بِصِحَافٍ مِّن ذَهَبٍ وَ أَكْوَابٍ وَ فِيهَا مَا تَشْتَهِيهِ الْأَنفُسُ وَتَلَذُّ الْأَعْيُنُ وَأَنتُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ‏ * وَتِلْكَ الْجَنَّةُ الَّتِى أُورِثْتُمُوهَا بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ‏ * لَكُمْ فِيهَا فَاكِهَةٌ كَثِيرَةٌ مِّنْهَا تَأْكُلُونَ‏

Those who believed in Our communications and were submissive: Enter the garden, you and your wives; you shall be made happy. There shall be sent round to them golden bowls and drinking-cups and therein shall be what their souls yearn after and (wherein) the eyes shall delight, and you shall abide therein. And this is the garden which you are given as an inheritance on account of what you did. For you therein are many fruits of which you shall eat. (43:69-73)

Answer 1:

Yes, one can have other women in the Heaven.

What is in our minds about heaven is very different to what it really is. Paradise is something above our imaginations. But because us humans belong to this materialistic world, Allah(swt) has also given material examples of heavenly blessings which a person will be getting in the heaven.


Answer 2:

In heaven there are no restrictions and what we know is less. For us it is just like explaining the world to the fetus in the womb. The life in the paradise will be full of happiness and no hatred will be found like that of this world.


Answer 3:

If a person’s wife and children are in heaven, then yes as it is mentioned in the Qur’an that the family joins together. Regarding husband and wife, if they like  they can be together in heaven but if they don’t want to, it is not compulsory to be with each other.

Yes, it is not mandatory to stay with the family; but in heaven, human nature is on its original path and naturally tends to its family and relatives.


Answer 4: 

Man has a body in the hereafter; Of course, his body is proportional to the Akhirah, and has differences with the material body; For example, he doesn’t get tired, his body doesn’t get sick etc. So it also has physical pleasures; But because of the differences, it cannot be said that his sexual pleasure is exactly the same as this world.

The power of God has no limits. If the things are not possible, the power of God can definitely put them in practical.  Since this world is a materialistic world, we feel worldly desires and good things to be there in the heaven but as it is beyond our understanding, we cannot imagine the blessings and mercies that a person will be given in heaven as the gift and mercies in the heaven can’t be compared to that of worlds.

Whatever the people wish in Paradise, that thing will happen. You see, people feel the animations are super beautiful or at times some are deprived of the beauty. Hence, some wish to see them in paradise. However, worthy of ponder that, If the animations ,which are created by a human being attracts someone, then wouldn’t Allah’s creation be better than that of man’s? Indeed, Allah(swt) can create something which is beyond our imaginations.

Although, we can’t nullify the idea that it is possible to have an appearance similar to that of an animated being.  However, the beauty Jannah outweighs anything and everything. But still,  after seeing the beauty of heaven if the person still wants a similar character (which we highly doubt), it may be presented for him. But there is so much of attraction in the paradise blessings that all these things such as marrying the animation will be forgotten and as you said it would be considered as “childish/worldlish”  thought.
