On the Day of Resurrection a beautiful woman, who has been deceived by her beauty, will be brought to be tried.
She will say: “O my Lord, You have made me so beautiful so that I did so and so.”
Then the Blessed Virgin Mary (a) will be brought forward. It will be said (to the woman): “Are you more beautiful than this one? We have made her so beautiful, but she has not been deceived.”
A handsome man, who has been deceived by his beauty will be brought.
He will say: “O my Lord, You have made me handsome until I got so and so from women.”
Then Prophet Yousuf (Joseph) (a) will be brought forward. It will be said (to the man): “Are you more handsome than this one? We have made him so handsome, but he has not been deceived.”
Then a miserable man, who has been deceived by (has lost his faith because of) his calamities will be brought forward.
He will say: “O my Lord, You have afflicted me with so many calamities that I have been deceived.”
Then Prophet Ayyoub (Job) (a) will be brought forward. It will be said (to the man): “Are your calamities severer than this man’s? He has been tried but he has not been deceived (has not lost his faith).”
