In the Quran, Allah has said:


9:72: “Allah hath promised men and women, Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of everlasting bliss. But the greatest bliss is the good Pleasure of Allah: that is the supreme felicity.”


Through the above declaration, Allah has assured the Muslim men and women that on the Day of Judgment they will enter the Gardens – the Gardens of Bliss (Jannat or Jannat un Na’im[1] in Arabic) - under which rivers constantly flow, if they performed righteous deeds during their stay on earth. But apart from enjoying the good Pleasure of Allah, He has not said in this statement which other felicities men and women will enjoy in the Gardens after they entered it on the Day of Judgment. Neither has Allah said why He has built beautiful mansions, when their existence in the Gardens is unnecessary, unless it was His intention to provide the dwellers of the Gardens with some sort of privacy in their sexual orgies.

In our understanding, the Day of Judgment has already occurred. Allah has tried the humans and the Jinns and consigned the guilty ones to the fire of Hell. Notable among the humans, who entered the Hell on this Day, were the wives of prophets Noah and Lut.[2]


To men, Allah has promised virgin Hurs with special qualities. They will never grow old, nor will their beauty ever wither away. They are stunningly beautiful; their skin unimaginably smooth with egg-shaped, big,[3] beautiful, and lustrous eyes[4] -pitch black in color - that resemble those of a doe, adore their faces. They are endowed with another remarkable quality: after each of their sexual encounters with the men Allah assigns them to (or, are they the common property of all the men of the Gardens?), they once again become virgins, thereby ensuring perpetual and inexhaustible pleasure to their men.

Some Muslim scholars rule out carnal sex in the Gardens. They say that the word “Hur,” as it has appeared in verse 52:20 and others, is much misunderstood and misinterpreted. Grammatically, it is not feminine in form, and the companionship of Hurs will be for all in the Gardens – men and women (as they were in their earthly life), who will retain their personality but not their carnal attributes.[5]


We see a point in the above contention of the Muslim scholars: since the Hurs are not females, but males, how can the Muslim men have sex with them? But does the Quran actually tell this to its adherents? And are all the Hurs of the Gardens male?


Consideration of the following narratives, culled from the Quran, will help us find answers to our questions:


1. In respect to the companions that Allah provides to the inhabitants of the Gardens, the Quran says:

“And beside them will be chaste women, restraining their glances, with big eyes (of wonder and beauty). As if they were (delicate) eggs closely guarded.”[6]


The women with big eyes spoken of in the verse are the Hurs. The great Imam Bukhari says, “Hoors (beauties of heaven) will be full-breasted and free from menstruation.”[7]

These prove that the Muslim scholars’ claim on the gender of the Hur is incorrect. They would, however, be right if the translation of the verse, quoted above, is proven wrong.


2. The Quran again says:

“So; and We shall join them to fair women with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes.” [8]

Allah joins (or weds) fair women with beautiful, big and lustrous eyes with men; the word “women” in the verse clearly referring to the Hurs. Obviously, Allah cannot join male Hurs in marriage with the male inhabitants of the Gardens. It will, of course, be a different matter, if it is agreed that Allah approves and performs in the Gardens same sex marriages!

Our above observations lead us to ask: if carnal sex has no place in the Gardens, then why Allah should bother to join the Hurs in marriage with the Gardens’ inhabitants? Why He should describe the beauty and attractiveness of the Hurs, if their only purpose is to give company to the people they are assigned to?


3. The Quran further says:

“And those who believe and whose families follow them in Faith, - to them shall we join their families: nor shall we deprive them (of the fruit) of aught of their works: (yet) is each individual in pledge for his deeds.”[9]


Clearly, Allah does not admit all the Muslims to the Gardens. Only the true believers find admission to them to live therein with their family members, provided He also finds them true in their faith. This being the situation, will it not be interesting to find out as to why Allah provides the inhabitants of the Gardens with the companionship of the Hurs, when they have their own family members to give them company?

There is only one answer to all the questions we have asked above: Hurs’ primary duty is to provide sexual gratifications to the male inhabitants of the Gardens. Apart from this, they have no other duty or function to perform in the Gardens.


But are there also male Hurs in the Gardens and if Allah joins them in marriage with the female inhabitants of the Gardens?


We do not think so, despite the fact that the word “Hur” is in masculine form, the reasons for it being: (1) The Quran is silent on it and (2) their presence in the Gardens is unnecessary. In this connection, the Quran says:


(1). “If any one does a righteous deed, it ensures to the benefit of his own soul: if he does evil, it works against (his own soul). In the end will ye (all) be brought back to your Lord.”[10] (2). “Enter ye the Garden, ye and your wives, in (beauty and) rejoicing.”[11]


A storied hadith of Imam Bukhari says:

“Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:


The Prophet said: "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful." It was asked, "Do they disbelieve in Allah?" (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, "They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, 'I have never received any good from you."[12]


We draw following conclusions from the quoted materials:


1. The number of the women who have entered the Gardens is small for the reasons mentioned in the hadith. Again, many of them have their pious and righteous husbands with them. Such women do not and cannot depend on the male Hurs to meet their sexual needs.


2. The number of men who have entered the Gardens is larger than their female residents. Consequently, these men have already been facing shortages of women in the Gardens, when desiring to have human touch in their sexual intercourse.


These reasons make the presence of the male Hurs in the Gardens redundant. On the other hand, the presence of a large number of men and a small number of women in the Gardens makes their presence logical, as Allah, who is duty-bound to meet men’s sexual needs, cannot fulfill His duty without having a large number of female Hurs in the Gardens.


It is His sense of duty or obligation towards those men of the Gardens who do not like women or Hurs that has led Him to create and place in the Gardens youths (gilmaan in the Quranic parlance[13]) of perpetual freshness, as ‘rewards for them and their endeavors,’[14] to serve their sexual needs. Allah plies these youths with pure and holy wine[15] so that they can provide maximum pleasure to their men-clients.


The Quran, which is addressed to men and which shows them the right Way,[16] tells us that Allah also gives His righteous guests wine from an ever-flowing fountain after mixing it with kafur (camphor).[17] In expression of their excitement, they exchange their wine-filled goblets of silver[18] with each other. Finding their excitement not to His entire satisfaction, Allah adds Zanjabil, which He collects from a fountain called Salsabil[19] to their wine in order to make them drunk – a condition without achieving which, they cannot perform their sexual acts in the manner He wants them to perform.


Without telling us in which of the seven Gardens this fountain is located, Allah has made it clear that the drinkers of Zanzabil do not suffer from intoxication or hangovers.[20]


But in the scenarios we drawn above, where do the female residents of the Gardens fit in? Who do they turn to for meeting their sexual needs, if their husbands refuse to oblige them? Do or will men have any reason for copulating with them, when they have at their disposal an abundant number of virgin and exceptionally beautiful Hurs for the purpose?


Some Muslim scholars have tried to answer our questions by telling us that Allah has created the gilmaans – the pre-pubescent youths - and placed them in the Gardens to provide sexual pleasures to His female guests. The Quran does not, however, support their claim, as it clearly indicates that they are in the Gardens only to serve the men, wearing bracelets of silver – the trinkets that only effeminate men and youths wear on their hands.[21] It would be a different matter, if Allah permits the women to rape these youths to satisfy their sexual hunger.


If Allah does not permit the women to rape the youths, then the women must be passing their days, sighing and tossing their bodies around in pain and agony – a condition that the sight of men having sex with Hurs before their eyes creates in them. Or, they may be indulging in lesbian acts to meet the demands of their bodies. Perhaps, Allah grants them this privilege, as they had patiently avoided sexual pleasures, and other desires, in their earthly lives.[22]


The Gardens’ residents need not do anything in their new homes. They are free from all the responsibilities and duties they used to care for on earth. Here, they do not need to pray to Allah, nor do they have to worry about sins. A brief description here of the Gardens and the amenities they contain will help us drive home our point of view.


Allah created the seven Gardens at the same time He was creating the Universe, which includes the seven skies. On them are located all the Gardens. Each Garden’s width is equivalent to the entire width of the sky it is located on, as well as the width of the earth.[23] Muhammad had seen all of them with his own eyes during the time he was paying a visit to Allah, whose Throne and Residences are presumably located in the Garden that is located on the seventh sky.


All the Gardens have many security gates,[24] manned by the angels. All of them have rivers,[25] flowing with milk and honey[26] and pure and crystal clear water and delicious wine,[27] the taste of all of which never changes. The inhabitants of the Gardens drink them from the goblets of gold.[28]


Tall and green trees not only bear bunches of delectable fruits[29] and add beauty to the Gardens, they also provide protection to their inhabitants from the non-existent sun’s heat. Beneath them are laid out comfortable but throne-like benches for the Gardens’ effeminate inhabitants, adorned with bracelets of gold, green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade,[30] to recline on, and to conduct their social intercourse among themselves.[31]


Allocation of space in the Gardens by Allah is, however, subject to the ranks He grants to the Muslims, keeping in His mind their performance on earth.[32] The ranks are: (1) the prophets and apostles who taught and led mankind; (2) the sincere devotees of Truth, who supported the Cause in their person and with all their resources; (3) the Martyrs and Witnesses who suffered and served the Cause and (4) the righteous people generally, those who led ordinary lives, but always with righteous aims.


The higher the rank the better accommodation and treatments its holders receive in the Gardens. For instance, the residents of the higher Garden, which is also known as the Paradise, drink their wine from Golden goblets; the residents of the lower ones drink theirs from the silver ones.[33] Despite their division into four categories, all the inhabitants of the Gardens form one equal Brotherhood of Peace, one Society of Concord.[34] This eliminates the sense of jealousy, ill-will and competition from them, thus making their lives most peaceful and dignified.


Other accounts also confirm the existence of the Gardens: all the prophets, except Muhammad, the last Prophet on earth, have been living in it for millions of years. Immediately after his burial in the grounds of Medina, Muhammad went into prostration with a vow not to stand up until Allah forgave all of his followers on the Day of Judgment. He also vowed not to enter the Garden without making sure that all of his followers will also find their berths in it.


If we now open up his tomb in Medina, we will find it empty. As the Day of Judgment has already taken place, Muhammad abandoned his tomb and has taken up residence with Allah in the Garden that is located on the seventh sky. Living under Allah’s constant watch, he has been enjoying his life to the hilt. Whether his wives have been able to join him in his celestial home is not known to us.


Another apostle who has been enjoying Allah’s great hospitability before Muhammad is Jesus Christ. We do not know if he has broken his vow of celibacy and placed himself on the hard bosoms of the Hurs. We also do not know on which sky his Garden is located, nor is known to us in which of the seven Gardens all the martyrs of Islam and the good and the righteous people of the old[35] have found their accommodations.


Allah carefully controls the temperature of all the Gardens. They are, therefore, neither too cold, nor too hot.[36] The vagaries of nature, which we confront on earth, do not reach them. They are free from rain, thunderstorm, tornados, snowing and all other bad climatic effects.


Because of the Gardens’ pleasant and safe climatic conditions, as we have noted above, almost all of its inhabitants prefer to live in their open space. Toilet and shower facilities do not, and cannot, exist in the Gardens. Their holy grounds do not tolerate human urine or bowel droppings.


All the residents of the Gardens live in them without any tension or concern for their needs, health and life.[37] Everything they need come to them at the expression of their wish. If a resident, for instance, wishes to eat a particular fruit, and he communicates his wish to Allah through a means of communication that is available only in the Gardens of Bliss,[38] Allah causes a tree to spring up in front of him, if it does not already exist, bearing ripe and delicious fruit. The good resident of the Garden does not need to extend or move his hands to pluck the fruit; a simple gesture of his eye brings it down to his silver plate.[39] Whether the fruit places itself into his mouth is again not known to us.


When he wishes to eat the meat of a rare fowl,[40] from no where it lands on the barbeque and cooks itself into a delicious meat. Its uneaten portion becomes a full bird and then it flies away, waiting to fulfill at no notice the wish of another honored guest of the Gardens.[41]


Having nothing to do; the ambience they live in; the food they eat and the drink they intake make the inhabitants of the Gardens yearn for only one thing and that is sex. It occupies their minds all the times. Taking rest and sleeping were for the earthly mortals; and after they entered the Gardens, these become the matters of the past.


Allah’s concept of the homosexual bliss that that His beloved followers are supposed to enjoy in their next life prompted AbdelHamidKisk, a blind preacher of Egypt, to tell his audience that “Muslims who entered paradise would enjoy eternal erections and the company of young boys draped in earrings and necklaces.” Some of the Ulemas, the religious scholars at the al-Azhar University of Cairo, disagreed. Yes, they said, men in the Gardens have erections, but merely protracted, but not perpetual.[42]

The scholars have not ruled out pederasty in the Gardens. We believe men’ penises become erect immediately after each of their copulations with the boys or the Hurs..


Since men and women live in the Gardens’ open space, all of their sexual activities take place before, and in the presence of, most of their inhabitants. Those among them, who feel shy in performing sex in the open, retire to one of the many mansions Allah has built in the Gardens and they indulge in their wild fantasies to their hearts’ content, without being seen or disturbed by their other compatriots.


Men with protracted erections and engaging themselves in sex present a scene worth watching: most of them, if not all, remain locked, like the dogs, with the Hurs and the young boys for a protracted period of time. Lying on the top of the Hurs (this position changes, on the basis of the men’s fancy), and riding the boys from their back, they create a scene that no human has seen before in his lifetime. In a sentence, it is a mass orgy


Allah loves orgy, but it does not cause arousal to His own sexual desires, as He is impotent. He, however, visits His honored guests from time to time to make sure they have been doing fine in the Gardens. He helps them with guidance where they need it in order to make their stay in them most pleasurable. After all, this is what He had promised them all along.


Since pious Muslim men - and their number is huge - avoided excessive and entertaining sex in their ephemeral lives, the sight of most of their brethren engaging themselves, before their eyes, in group sex will not appear to them like an orgy. Instead, it would appear to them as being another pious act in the Gardens; its methodology, composition of partners and duration having been determined by none, but Allah Himself.


We assert that women in the Gardens fend for themselves. They fulfill their sexual desires either through masturbation or by engaging themselves in lesbian acts. That is what the kind and merciful Allah has ordained for them. He neglected them on the earth; He neglects them in the Gardens as well.
