Ṣīyāna al-Māshiṭa (Arabic: صِیانَةالماشِطَة, Ṣīyāna the beautician), was the wife of Ezekiel (the Believer of Pharaoh's People) who was killed by Pharaoh along with her children due to her faith in God. According to narrations, she is among the women who will return to this world at the time of raj'a.

Based on some narrations, Ezekiel's wife known as "Siyana al-Mashita" was the beautician of Pharaoh's daughter. One day Siyana was beautifying Pharaoh's daughter and uttered the name of God. Pharaoh's daughter informed her father that Siyana believes in God and does not consider you as God. Pharaoh first burnt her children in a copper hearth but Siyana did not deny her belief in God. Then Pharaoh burnt Siyana as well.[1]

The status of Siyana and her children has been mentioned in narrations as following:

  • The Prophet (s) smelled a nice fragrance in heaven. Gabriel said this is fragrance of the ashes of Siyana and her children.[2]
  • Siyana is among the women who will return to this world at the time of raj'a (after the Reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi (a)) and will treat the injured.[3]
  • Ibn Abbas considers the last child of this family as one the four children who has spoken as an infant; when Pharaoh had decided to burn the last child of Siyana, this child addressed its mother and said: Oh, mom! Be patient because you are on the right path.[4]
