Answer: Allaah, the Glorified and Almighty, says regarding the pleasures of Paradise:
“…Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and therein you shall have (all) for which you ask for. “An entertainment from (Allah), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Qur’an 41:31-32]
Also, He, The Almighty, says:
“…(there will be) therein all that the one’s inner-selves could desire, all that the eyes could delight in, and you will abide therein forever.” [Qu’ran 43:71]
It is known that marriage is one of the most desired things for the inner-selves and thus it will also happen in Paradise for its inhabitants, both male and female. As for the woman, Allaah, the Glorified and Almighty, will get her married in Paradise to whoever she was married to in this world, s He, the Almighty, says:
“Our Lord! And make them enter the ‘Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) which you have promised them, and to the righteous among their fathers, their wives, and their offspring!…” [Qu’ran 40:8]
If it so happens that a woman had two husbands in this world (say for example, the first died and then she remarried), then she will be given a choice to choose between them in Paradise. And if a woman never got married in this world, then Allaah, the Exalted, will get her married to someone who will be the delight of her eyes (i.e. she will be pleased with him) in Paradise.
Thus the pleasures in Paradise are not restricted to men but rather for men and women. And among these pleasures is marriage. However, one might say that Allaah, the Exalted, mentioned Hoor al-‘een who are the wives and did not mention husbands for women. So on this, we say that He mentioned wives for the husbands because it is husband who seeks and desires.
