One will be resurrected with the one they love

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Gibril F Haddad

I once heard someone say that if you really love someone and that person really loves you, but both people had to marry someone else in this world, that these two will be able to be with one another in the Hereafter (this is taking into account that these two people are married to others, but are not disrespecting or not ignoring the rights of their husband/wife in this world)? I would appreciate it if you could let me know if this is true?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Wa `alaykum as-Salam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh:

I don’t know the answer to the above other than by the general hadith that “One will be resurrected with the one s/he loves.”

However, there is a hadith narrated from the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, that “a woman will be [in the next world] with the best of her [worldly] husbands” if she had more than one. This can be harmonized with the hadiths in the Umm Darda’ posting if we understand that Allah Most High will reunite a widow with her last husband in Paradise except if a previous husband is preferable to her for having been a better person and Allah knows best.
