Who will be the Husbands of the Women of Paradise?

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen rahimahullaah was asked in his Majmoo` Fataawaa vol. 2, page 53:

Q: If a woman had two husbands in this world, then who will she be with – out of the two of them (in the Hereafter)? And why did Allaah mention the wives for the men and He did not mention the husbands for the women (of Paradise)?

A: If a woman were to have two husbands in this world then she is given a choice between them on the Day of Resurrection, in Paradise.

And if she did not marry in this world then Allaah the Most High causes her to get married in Paradise to someone that is pleasing to her eye.

So the bliss of Paradise is not restricted to the males, rather it is for the males and the females. And from that bliss is marriage.

As for the questioner’s saying: “Allaah the Most High mentioned the Hoorul-`Een (fair maidens with large, beautiful eyes) and they are wives (for the men), but He did not mention husbands for the women.”

Then we say: The wives were mentioned for the husbands because the husband he is the one who requests and desires the woman. Due to this the wives were mentioned for the men in Paradise, and (due to this) the husbands for the women were not made mention of.

However this does not mean that they will not have husbands, rather they will have husbands from the sons of Aadam.
