Old lady asking about Paradise

Once an old lady came to the Prophet   and said,

O Messenger of Allah, make Dua (supplication) that Allah causes me to enter Jannah.

The Prophet   looked at her and said,

O my aunt, haven’t you been informed that old ladies cannot enter Jannah?

Hearing this, the old lady became very upset, she started wailing and crying. Then the Prophet   then told her,

Don’t cry. For Wallahi, old ladies cannot enter Jannah but Allah (S) will make her into a young fair maiden and then she will enter Jannah.

The Prophet   was actually giving this old lady glad tidings that she will not be her old self in her afterlife but rather she will go back to her younger self and enter paradise.
