In Islam, the houri are young attractive females awaiting male martyrs in the Islamic paradise.
- The martyr gets..rewards from Allah. From the first drop of his blood, he is pardoned. He sees his place in Paradise. He is spared the torments of the grave...He is wedded...to seventy-two black-eyed women.
- Kuwaiti Cleric Ahmad Qattan on the Rewards of the Martyr in Paradise (22 January 2008).
- “Verily for the Righteous there will be a fulfilment of (the heart's) desires;”[78:31 (Yusuf Ali)] “Gardens enclosed, and grapevines;”[78:32 (Yusuf Ali)] “And voluptuous women of equal age.”[Quran 78:33 (Yusuf Ali)]
