Why do Houris serve us and marry us?
- No one serves anyone for pleasure; so why do houris serve us, why do they marry us?
- They do not really know us, they do not have the right to choose their husbands; they serve us and marry us like robots programmed to love us; and that seems fake to me.

Dear Brother / Sister,
Houris are given to the person as the lady of the house, not as a servant. Servants and houris are different.
Spouses help each other in the common life in this world; the same thing holds true for houris and their spouses in Paradise.
Besides, no one in Paradise needs the service of another. Those who serve do not serve because they need but to be honored. Otherwise, if a person wants something, it will happen immediately in Paradise. If he says, “come” to an apple, it will come and land on his hand.
However, if a maid brings it, it can give a different pleasure.
In the Quran, life in the hereafter is described through symbols and metaphors to enable people to understand it better. In this regard, the Prophet (pbuh) states that the blessings of Paradise are such that no ear has heard, no eye has seen and no imagination can reach as follows:
“Allah Almighty said: I have prepared for My pious servants which no eye has ever seen, and no ear has ever heard, and no human heart has ever perceived.” (Muslim, Jannah 2)
