In Jannah with unwanted wife

Fatwaa ID: 2201

Asslamu alaikum MuftiSahab,
May Allah give you success in Dunya’h and Akhirah….!!

This question came from one of my friend.
I have heard that your spouse will be your spouse hereafter as well. If he is not happy with her behavior but cant take divorce due to Deen as well as Society limitations. But he is really fed up with his wife, specially tounge,anger and selfish behavior . So what will happen here. Will they still be together in akhirah or there will be some other way or something happen which we cant imagine?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

May Allaah Ta’aala grant you happiness and comfort in both lives. May He fill your marriage with unity, happiness and affection.

Allaah Ta’aala mentions in the Qur’aan that grudges and hard feelings will be removed in Jannah. There will only be happiness in Jannah. If a person’s spouse was not the nicest person in this Dunya, that will not be the case in the Hereafter. In Jannah, the spouses will be the best for each other. If Allaah Ta’aala wants, He may also allow a person in Jannah not to be with his spouse of the Dunya. Nonetheless, whatever happens, a person would be happy. We should focus on getting into Jannah. The details will come thereafter.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.

مجمع الزاوئد ومنبع الفوائد (4/308)
7644 وعن ميمونة أن رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – قام في صف الرجال والنساء فقال : ” يا معشر النساء إذا سمعتن أذان هذا الحبشي وإقامته فقلن كما يقول ، فإن لكن بكل حرف ألف ألف درجة ” .

فقال عمر : فهذا للنساء فما للرجال ؟ فقال : ” ضعفان يا عمر ” . ثم أقبل على النساء فقال : ” إنه ليس من امرأة أطاعت وأدت حق زوجها وتذكر حسنه ، ولا تخونه في نفسها وماله إلا كان بينها وبين الشهداء درجة واحدة في الجنة ، فإن كان زوجها مؤمنا حسن الخلق فهي زوجته في الجنة وإلا زوجها الله من الشهداء ” .

رواه الطبراني بإسنادين في أحدهما عبد الله الجزري عن ميمونة ، وفيه منصور بن سعد ، ولم أعرفه ، وفيه عباد بن كثير ، وفيه ضعف كبير ، وقد ضعفه جماعة ، وبقية رجاله ثقات ، والإسناد الآخر فيه جماعة لم أعرفهم .
