Sex in paradise


Sheikh Muhammad Galal Kishk
God of the Muslims in his book, the Quran in Surah 52:24 says the following about Muslims who will go into his paradise:

“Round about them will serve, (devoted) to them, Youths (handsome) as Pearls well-guarded.” (according to Yusuf Ali’s translation)
“And there shall wait on them, young boys of their own, as fair as virgin pearls.” (according to Dawood’s translation)
That in this paradise, Muslims will be served by boys that will be handsome and are like virgin pearls.

What bothers people like me is the following:
·      Why reference to handsomeness?
·      They are they like pearls?
·      Why even hint on virginity here?

Let’s look at women who are also prepared by Allah in his paradise for the Muslims:

Allah says in Surah 56:22-23:
And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes, like unto hidden pearls. (according to Pickthall’s translation)
We know that Muslims will be having sex with women in the paradise of their God. That is clearly known. According the this verse, such women will be:

·      sensually attractive (fair, wide eyes, lovely eyes)
·      like ‘pearls’ (just like the boys above)

This raises some serious questions. Why should the boys be spoken of in a sexist language? Well, we have some Islamic scholars who gave answers to that – even though many Muslims refuse to accept it:
Sheikh Muhammad Galal Kishk, an Egyptian Islamic scholar, and a graduate of Al-Azhar University says:

The boys in the paradise are for sexual enjoyment, they resemble the “scattered pearls” while the “Hour Al-in” resemble the “preserved pearls,” so they are of the same nature, as both are for sexual enjoyment. (“Muslim thoughts in the sexual issues,” page 214).

Not only that, but also the famous Islamic scholar and jurist, Imam Ibn al-Jawzi (d. 1200 C.E.) from Baghdad, also stated boldly that:
He who claims that he experiences no sexual desire when looking at beautiful young boys is a liar and if we could believe him he would be an animal and not a human being.”

Jesus clearly said the following to those who think people will be having sex in His paradise, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. (Matthew 22:29-30)
