Q: I’m a practicing Muslim woman in USA and I notice that in the Quran even if the men are rewarded with Hoor Al Ayn there is no stated reward for women in the Quran. Like sometimes I need motivation for Jannah and saying “whatever you desire” is too vague for me. Maybe if Allah stated that women would be rewarded with a palace with singing angels or a Pegasus or a personal spa it would have motivated us even more. So I could pray five times a day and at the end of the day I could say Allah would reward you with blah blah blah and I could say Allah is very generous with me or I could be very happy knowing I won’t be disappointed in the afterlife. I know Jannah isn’t like Dunya, but how Allah reassured the men that even if they died unmarried or withheld themselves in this world Allah will substitute with something better, sometimes I need the same reassurance. Also I think a lot of Muslim women need reassurance also. What do women get?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
