My mother's mother told me once that
only one woman will be left old in
paradise and her name is Zulaikha the
wife of Prophet Yusuf-Pbuh because she
was given her hereafter's share in this
world by having double young age. Is
this true?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

We did not find any evidence for such a
statement; rather, it is apparently from
the Israa'eeliyyaat (narrations from Jews
and Christians) which are abundant in
many Tafseers about the story of Yousuf
(Joseph), may Allah exalt his mention.
Here, we deem it appropriate to
mention this precious statement that
Shaykh As-Sa’di mentioned at the
beginning of his interpretation of
Chapter "Yousuf" (Quran 12): “You
should know that Allah stated that He
narrates to His Prophet the best of
stories in this Book, and then He
mentioned this story in an easy style
and He mentioned what happened in it,
so it is known from this that it is a
perfect, complete and good story.
Therefore, whoever wants to complete
it and make it more beautiful with what
is mentioned in the Israa'eeliyyaat
whose chains of narrators are not
known, and whose narrators are not
known, and most of them are lies, then
he is correcting something which he
claims to be wrong of what Allah has
mentioned, and he is completing
something which he claims to be
imperfect. So, what a very obscene and
abominable act this is! Indeed, in many
Tafseers of this Chapter, there are lies
and grotesque matters that contradict
what Allah has stated about it to a great
extent. Hence, a person should
understand what Allah has narrated and
leave what is not reported from the
Prophet .”
Moreover, we did not find any evidence
that proves what is said that Yousuf,
may Allah exalt his mention, married
the wife of Al-‘Azeez, and whoever
mentioned it could have taken its
source from the Israa'eeliyyaat.

Likewise, there is a difference of
opinion in regard to the name of the
wife of Al-‘Azeez being "Zulaykhah" as
some scholars stated that this is her
On the other hand, there is no old
woman in Paradise, as Allah Says (what
means): {Indeed, We have produced
them [i.e. the women of Paradise] in a
[new] creation. And made them virgins.}
[Quran 56:35-36]
Indeed, there is a Hadeeth narrated by
Anas, may Allah be pleased with him,
that the Prophet said to an old
woman: “No old woman will enter
Paradise.” She (the old woman) said:
“Why is it so?” And she was a reader
of the Quran. So, the Prophet
asked her: “Don’t you read the Quran
(i.e. the two Quranic verses which
mean) {Indeed, We have produced them
[i.e. the women of Paradise] in a [new]
creation. And made them virgins.}? At-
Tabreezi attributed it [the Hadeeth] in
his book "Mishkaat Al-Masaabeeh" to
Razeen, and Al-‘Iraaqi classified it as
Dha’eef when classifying the Ahaadeeth
of "Ihyaa’ ‘Uloom Ad-Deen".
Allah Knows best.
