Some of my friends wanted me to translate the post that I copy and pasted from a friend’s facebook notes. And I couldn’t find the English edition of the source, and if I try to translate it with my own words, I’m afraid there will be some distortions of the actual meaning. So I decided to collect my own source from the internet, and I hope — even when the post will not be as good — I can help women who have questions for this matter as well. 🙂
I am a firm believer in the Qur’an and Allah. Thank Allah my faith and trust in Him grows each day. My concern is this: the Qur’an mentions over and over the blessings of Heaven. It repeatedly mentions beautiful, pure maidens as a bounty of Heaven. People often say Islam is a male dominance religion.
Why is there not mention of rewards for women?
Since we believe in Allah and His Book, we must know that:
“… and not one will thy Lord treat with injustice”, [QS al-Kahf (18) : 49]
“Allah is never unjust in the least degree: if there is any good (done), He doubleth it, and gives from His Own Self a great reward” [QS an-Nisa (4): 40]
“If any do deeds of righteousness, be they male or female, and have faith, they will enter heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them.” [QS an-Nisa (4): 124]
In explanation of this Verse, Ibn Kathir (May Allah have mercy on him) said the Verse shows Allah’s kindness, generosity and mercy in accepting the good deeds of all people, men and women, provided that they believe, in allowing them into heaven and in not decreasing rewards for their good deeds no even in the least.
And here is a hadith that will dispel any doubt we may have with respect to the mentioning of women:
In the collection of Hadiths of Imam Ahmad was narrated the Hadith that Um Salama (May Allah be pleased with her) said: “I said “O Messenger (May peace and blessings be upon him) of Allah. Why aren’t we mentioned in the Quran in an equal footing with men?” Then; I was surprised to hear Him call one day from the pulpit: “O people.” As I was combing my hair at the moment, I wrapped it up and came close to the door and stood there listening to Him say: “Allah, Mighty and Sublime be He, revealed that : For Muslim men and women; for believing men and women; for devout men and women, for true men and women; for men and women who are patient and constant; for men and women who humble themselves; for men and women who give in charity; for men and women who fast; for men and women who guard their chastity; and for men and women who engage much in Allah’s remembrance for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.” [QS al-Ahzab (33) : 35]

Will a woman be with her husband in Jannah?
And Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid answer to the question as following;
We do not think that anyone who Allaah has decreed will enter Paradise and have all trace of hatred taken away from them will choose to be separated from a loved one when he or she meets them in the Hereafter.
If a woman does not get married in this world, Allaah will grant her a spouse in whom she will find delight in Paradise. The joys of Paradise are not limited only to males – they are for males and females alike, and part of that joy is marriage.”
(Majmoo’ Fataawaa Ibn ‘Uthaymeen, 2/53), There will be no single people in Paradise.

If a woman dies, and she had more than one husband in her lifetime, who will she be with in Paradise?
There are three scholarly opinions on this matter:
1. That she will be with the one who was best in character and conduct with her in this world;
2. That she will choose between them;
3. That she will be with the last of her husbands.
And of course each opinions have their explanations, so read more on this link.
Those are the questions and answers about what women will get in heaven. And no matter what, we have to assure ourselves, that Allah subhanaahu wa taala will never disappoints us. Allah subhanaahu wa taala provides us perfectly in this life and Allah subhanaahu wa taala will defenitely provide us in heaven.
“We are your protectors in this life and in the Hereafter: therein shall you have all that your souls shall desire; therein shall you have all that you ask for. A hospitable gift from One Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [QS Fussilat (41) : 31-32]
