Nie tylko hurysy: wildān muḫalladūn i ġilmān w Koranie i muzułmańskiej literaturze religijnej

Not only Houris: wildān muḫalladūn and ġilmān in the Koran and Muslim Religious Literature

In descriptions and discussions of the Muslim concept of paradise, much space is always devoted to the famous – as well as infamous – Houris.My article, however, is devoted to another paradise thread, that is, an analysis of fragments of the Koran where “immortal youths” (wildān muḫalladūn) are mentioned. These are verses 56:17-19 and 76:19. In slightly different words (ḡilmān muḫalladūn) they are also referred to in verse 52:24.This topic has not yet been sufficiently covered in the studies in the field of Arabic and Islamic studies.Christian Luxenberg devoted some space to him in his controversial work on the Syro-Aramaic reading of the Koran.Much more space has been devoted to “immortal youths” by Muslim scholars, both classical and modern, not avoiding references to the ambiguities that may arise in connection with these verses.
