Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Why are the people in paradise described as having a white complexion? Is it a symbol for purity/metaphorical or is it literal, part of their beauty? If so, then why not for example brown skin/dark skin?


A: Endeavour to get into Jannah. Once you are there, Insha Allah you will understand the reason for the complexion.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
