Asiya wife of Pharoah
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
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:
My dear Brother in Islam Mr. Burhan,
May Allah bestow His Blessings upon you for the virtuous job you have undertaken. In continuation of your reply to question # 205-1193 I would request you to please enlighten us on the status of HAZRAT "Aasia", the wife of Pharoah, whose mention has also been made in the Holy Quran. Some people say that she has been or will be married to the Holy Prophet in the JANNAT, as ordained by Allah.

Asiya wife of Pharoah
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 (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Statement: May Allah bestow His Blessings upon you for the virtuous job you have undertaken.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. We humbly hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accept our humble and weak efforts, forgive us our shortcomings, and save you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

Whatever we know of Hadrat Asiya (r.a.), the virtuous and pious wife of the enemy of Allah, Firaun, is what is declared in the Quran and the Sunnah.
Allah Subhanah Says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 66 Surah Tahreem verse 11: And Allah sets forth as an example to those who believe: the wife of Pharaoh (Asiya): Behold she said: "O my Lord! Build for me in nearness to Thee, a mansion in the Garden, and save me from Pharaoh and his doings, and save me from those that do wrong";
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.329 Narrated by Abu Musa Al Ashari
The Prophet (saws) said, "Many men reached perfection but none among the women reached perfection except Mary, the daughter of ' Imran, and Asiya, Pharoah's wife.
There is absolutely no mention in any of the authentic books of Sunnah that Hadrat Asiya (r.a.) will be married to Prophet Mohamed (saws) in Paradise in the life of the Hereafter. And if such a thing is not mentioned in the Quran or the Sunnah, it does behove the believers, who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day, to become match-makers of the Hereafter and start arranging marriages between righteous people in the life Hereafter, on their own whims and fancies!
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.
Your Brother in Islam,
