Complexion of the people of Jannah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I was wondering about Jannah. In an earlier question, you said that, while people’s age will remain the same, their appearances will vary. However, in another question, you said that the people of paradise will be fair in complexion. Based on this, I was wondering, while people’s appearance will change, will their complexion remain fair due to it being the height of beauty according to the ulama?


A: All that is pleasing and beautiful will be enjoyed in Jannah insha-Allah.

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