Q: In tafsir jalalayn by Allama Suyuti on this verse describing the hoor al ayn “And with them will be chaste females, restraining their glances (desiring none except their husbands), with wide and beautiful eyes; (Delicate and pure) as if they were (hidden) eggs (well) preserved.” [Sura As-Saffaat]

كأنهن ** في اللون بيض ** للنعام مكنون ** مستور بريشه لا يصل إليه غبار، ولونه وهو البياض في صفرة، أحسن ألوان النساء

What is meant by white mixed with yellow? Does it mean a tan/light brown skin complexion?

Bismillaah

A: People have different choice preferences. The Arabs generally like white complexion with a tinge of yellow.

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

Q: I was not asking what the Arabs like. I was asking what does white mixed with yellow mean? Does it mean an olive skin tone? As well, is this the complexion of the houris in paradise as I read they are described as being white like al marjan (coral).

Bismillaah

A: Once you reach Jannah insha-Allah, you will get the entire description.

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