Male Hoors?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Salamualikum, I wanna know about scholars view on hoor al ayn. Obviously most scholars say that such a reward is only for men. But the Quran made it clear that both men and women get whatever that they desire in jannah. In another ayah, it says clearly that you will have whatever that you wish for (for men and women). So why do scholars still say that women are not allowed to have more than one partner (even though the Quran says you can fulfill all your desires)? I mean, I’m a woman, and I do wish for men hoors (I’m pretty sure a lot of women do (but they don’t mention it out of shyness)). I wear the hijab (and black abaya) all the time,I never put any makeup and I never speak to men, and I’ve never had a haram relationship whatsoever. But it really bothers me how people tell me that this is a wish ONLY men can have. What if I want this wish too? So In jannah, only men’s wishes and desires come true? What if I want to get married to a creature in jannah that’s not from earth? I mean, the Quran did say you can have anything that you desire, doesn’t it? It’s been years I’m searching for the right answer, and I’ve asked multiple imams and scholars but they tell me the same thing: “inshallah when you reach Jannah, you can ask for whatever you desire.” I know I can ask for whatever I desire in jannah (because Allah gave me this permission), but, scholars never give me a “yes” to this question or a “no.” And I know unlike humans, Allah is never unjust and He can never be unjust. But I’m just confused about how some scholars say a part of the Quran that they like and ignore the other part completely. I’ve even listened to some scholars that say that “women will not be jealous in jannah.” And I have a question for these scholars: so will men stay jealous in jannah and women will not? Astaghfirullah. Where is the justice? Some scholars make me feel like jannah is only made for men.

You want a straight forward yes or no answer on the enquiry in reference. No one will be able to fulfill your request as there is no express text of yes or no in the Quran.

We should rather focus our attention and concern in making dua to qualify to enter into Jannah.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
