Hinduism too speaks about beautiful “Hoors” of Paradise

The concept of Houri or Hoor in Islam have always been mocked at, while Hindu religious scriptures too have spoken explicitly about virgins in paradise.

Hoor al-ein is a part of the Islamic doctrine system. The faith is based on proofs in the Glorious Qur’an and the blessed sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Glorious Qur’an says:

And fair maidens with wide eyes, like preserved, hidden pearls. (Al Waqi’ah 22-23)

Allah the Almighty has described Hoor al-ein for us in more than one verse with beautiful descriptions such as wide eyes, having very darkness in their eye balls and very whiteness in around, virgin, free from all sorts of dirt and impurities with beautiful morality and good conduct with their husbands in Paradise. Allah the Almighty has promised of Hoor al-ein for true believers in order to stimulate to do good in this world and to stay away from bad actions.

In a Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says: “And if a woman among the women inhabiting Paradise were to appear to the people of the earth, then she would illuminate what is between the ( the heavens and the earth), and a pleasant scent would fill up what is between them, and the scarf on her head is better than the world and what is in it.” [Ref: Jami` at-Tirmidhi , The Book on Virtues of Jihad, Chapter: What Has Been Related About Going Out In The Morning And The Afternoon In The Cause Of Allah]

Vedas and other Hindu scriptures verify that Hinduism also has the concept of “Hoor” like that of Islamic faith. However, there are differences in many related issues, as Islamic concepts stand unique from all other religions.

Mahabharat says about the one who was killed in the battlefield and got martyred and deserved the Paradise:

वराप्सरःसहस्राणिशूरमआयॊधनेहतम
तवरमाणाहिधावन्तिममभर्ताभवेदइति

Meaning: Thousands of handsome Apsaras (maidens) run up in haste to the hero who has been slain in battle (i.e. a martyr), (exclaiming) be my husband). [Ref: Mahabharata Shanti Parv (Book 12) section 98; Shloka 46]

Atharvaved says that there will be plenty of them.

“Boneless, pure, cleansed with the wind, brilliant, they go to a brilliant world. The fire does not burn their male organ. In Swarga they get plenty of women.” [Ref: Atharvaved 4:34:2]

The concept of Hoor in Islam is to encourage men to abstain from fornication, adultery and all sorts of sexual perversions, which will guarantee them “pure and beautiful” Hoor in paradise.

However, extremist groups who outwardly claim to be Muslims have always bribed the recruits with “Hoor”, despite the fact Islam condemns terrorism and extremism in all forms.
