“I am convinced about the veracity of my opinions, but I do consider it likely that they may turn out to be incorrect. Likewise, I am convinced about the incorrectness of the views different from mine, but I do concede the possibility that they may turn out to be correct.” — Imam Shafa’i

Rewards for men and women in paradise

Question:
if a man gets 72 virgins in Jannat, what is there for a woman ? Is she just a piece of meat to serve their lust ? Isn't this concept just destroying women's self respect and dignity in a Muslim society.

Response:
According to the Qur'an there are going to be pure men for pure women and pure women for pure men in the next life, like there are going to be filthy men for filthy women and vice versa. (24:26) There is no mention of 72 virgins in the Qur'an. And the mention of all the blessings of the paradise in the Qur'an is allegorical (3:7). In the same verse the Qur'an informs that no one knows the reality of the allegorical verses except God. When the Book says that paradise will give its inhabitants all they will desire and they will have much more (50: 35) in it, it should suffice for us.
