Complexion of people in paradise

Question ID: 22444

Mufti,: Certain descriptions in terms of beauty say that the people of paradise will be white coloured/fair in complexion along with hairless, beardless, and thirty three years old. Also, the hoors are described as being white complexion as well, like pearls. First, I am not saying it is racist because that would be moronic as anyone can go to heaven, but with this, I just kind of wonder, why does a universal deity follow one beauty standard as I heard white complexion was the favoured complexion among the Arabs.

Firstly, colour is not the issue.
Because the colour of the eyes of those in Jahannum are ‘blue’.
A ‘black’ person is going to break the Ka’bah.
A ‘black’ person, Hadhrat Bilaal (R.A)’s footsteps preceded Nabi (S.A.W)’s in Jannat.
Moreover this whiteness could be referred to light in complexion or radiating brightness of celestial light.

وَعَلَيْكُمُ السَّلَام وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ وَمَغْفِرَتُهُ
