SEXY FEMALE VIRGINS FOR MEN IN PARADISE - REALLY?
Quite extravagant and graphic portrayals of female virgins are found in Islamic secondary sources. Female virgins reserved specifically for men in heaven constitute one such example.
SO WHAT DOES THE QURAN REALLY SAY?
The term ‘Hur’ is one of the most abused and graphically portrayed concepts in Islamic secondary sources. Its restricted interpretation to denote female virgins finds no support in the Quran, or for its male-centric bias.
The Arabic word 'Hur' is the plural of both the word 'Ahwar' (Masculine) and 'Hawra' (Feminine). It literally translates as "white-eyed", or persons distinguished by 'Hawar', signifying the intense whiteness of the white of an eye and intense black of the pupils.
Generally, it has the significance of ‘whiteness’, ‘purity’, or ‘pure beings’. It is not ‘gender specific’ for a male audience as it is more commonly known. A better and correct rendering is ‘companions pure’.
Therefore : Ha-Waw-Ra (Ha-Alif-Ra) is:
The white around the eye, intense whiteness of the white of the eye and intense blackness of the black* not found in humans but attributed to them by way of comparison. Or it is applied to one bearing the following significations: one who is freed and cleared of every vice, fault or defect, one who has been tried and proved time after time and found to be free of vices, faults or defects. A thing pure. One who advises/counsels or acts sincerely/honestly/faithfully, friend/assistant, fair woman/man.
