Age of a person on the day of judgement
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Asakwrwwb. what would be the age of a person on the Day of Qayamah? when Allah Swt will Raise us from the dead what would be our Age and is it True that the Ladies wil be 16 Years of Age and her Hair would be covering her Front part of her body as everyone will be in a state of No clothes. Please Clarify. Appreciate an Answer at the very Earliest. Jazak Allah Khair.

Age of Jannati
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 5648Narrated by Abu Sa'id
There is indeed evidence of an authentic hadith which states that the age of men and women who enter Paradise or Hell Fire will all be 30, and they will never grow older. To the best of our knowledge, we have not come accross any authentic narration which states what will be the exact age of the person when he/she is raised up from the graves for the Day or Resurrection. Whether one is raised from the graves at the same age of 30, or whether that age of 30 is Decreed only when one is granted entry into Paradise or Hell is something which is known to Allah Subhanah Alone.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith (Hadith 8.531)
The Prophet said, "You will meet Allah barefooted, naked, walking on feet, and uncircumcised."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith (Hadith 4.656)
Allah's Apostle said, "You will be resurrected (and assembled) bare-footed, naked and uncircumcised." The Prophet then recited the Divine Verse: "As We began the first creation, We shall repeat it: A promise We have undertaken. Truly we shall do it." (21.104)
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith (Hadith 8.534)
Allah's Apostle said, "The people will be gathered barefooted, naked, and uncircumcised." I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Will the men and the women look at each other?" He said, "The situation (on The Day of Resurrection) will be too hard for them to pay attention to that."
There is indeed evidence in the authentic and established Hadith that all men and women will be raised naked on the Day of Judgment; but to the best of our knowledge we have not come accross any hadith which states that the age of the womenfolk will be sixteen, or that their hair will cover the front parts of their naked bodies.
When asked by Hadrat Aisha (r.a.), the Messenger of Allah (saws) replied that the terror, state, and situation of that Tumultuous Day of Judgment will be such that one would not care about the state of another!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
