Age of People in Paradise


In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 38 Surah Saad verses 50-53:

50      (The Righteous will be in the) Gardens of Eternity whose doors will (ever) be open to them;

51      Therein will they recline (at ease); therein can they call (at pleasure) for fruit in abundance and (delicious) drink;

52      And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances, (companions) of equal age.

53      Such is the promise made to you for the Day of Account!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 78 Surah Naba verses 31-33:

31      Verily for the Righteous there will be a fulfillment of (the Heart's) desires;

32      Gardens enclosed and Grape-vines;

33      (And) Companions of Equal Age;


Allah Subhanah Declares that the people in Paradise and their companions will be of equal age.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 5648        Narrated by Abu Sa'id

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The lowliest of the inhabitants of Paradise will be he who has eighty thousand servants, seventy-two wives, and for whom a round pavilion of pearls, chrysoprase  and rubies as large as the distance between al-Jabiyah and San'a will be set up."  He (saws) further said, "Those who are to go to Paradise, who die whether young or old, will come into Paradise aged thirty and never grow older. The same applies to those who will go to Hell."  He (saws) further said "They (the people of Paradise) will wear crowns, the smallest pearl of which will illuminate the space between the east and the west.  When a believer in Paradise wishes for a child, its conception, delivery and growth to full age will be accomplished in a moment as he wishes." 


In light of the above narration, the Messenger of Allah (saws) said that every fortunate dweller of Paradise will be thirty years of age when they enter it, and they will never ever grow older as a Mercy and Honor from their Lord Most Gracious, Most Bounteous.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
