Question

Please provide the reference for the following:

“The wives of the people of Jannah will sing for their husbands with the most beautiful voices that anyone has ever heard. One of their songs will be, ‘We are the women with good character and beautiful faces. We are the wives of noble husbands”

 

Answer

There are numerous narrations regarding the beautiful voices and singing of the Hurs (Maidens of Jannah). Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded a narration worded just as in your query. The full narration is as follows:

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The wives of the people of Jannah will sing for their husbands with the most beautiful voices that anyone has ever heard. One of their songs will be, ‘We are the women with good character and beautiful faces. We are the wives of noble husbands who look at us with the coolness of their eyes.’ Another song will be, ‘We are the immortal women; we will never die. We are the
women full of security; we will never be afraid. We are the women who will always remain, we will never leave.”

(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 4914 and Al Mu’jamus Saghir, Hadith: 734)

 

‘Allamah Mundhiri and Hafiz Haythami (rahimahumallah) have declared the narrators of this Hadith reliable.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
