I have heard many things about Hoor. Some from Qur’an and some from Hadith.

From Qur'an

Hoor's eyes are like Deer's eye.

"sorry I don't know surah name and ayat's number."

I can understand a little by this ayat and more with other information but these are only parts which I know. I don't know it in details.

Over all I know only parts of complete detail so I want to know it with reference of ayat or hadith.
