We do not have a lot of information about the righteous woman Aasiyah bint Mazaahim, the wife of Pharaoh. All the details that have been narrated about her are from the Israa'eeliyyaat (stories from Jewish sources) and are not proven in any saheeh text as far as we know.

But it seems - and Allah knows best - that she was one of those who concealed their faith from Pharaoh, then her secret was found out. There follow some of the things that have been narrated about her, with some commentary:

Allah Ta'aala says: "And Allah has set forth an example for those who believe: the wife of Fir'awn (Pharaoh), when she said: 'My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise, and save me from Fir'awn (Pharaoh) and his work, and save me from the people who are Zaalimoon (polytheists, wrongdoers and disbelievers in Allah)'"

[al-Tahreem 66:11]

Some Ulema are of the opinion that when She recited the Dua mentioned in the above Ayat, She immediately passed away, the veil between Jannat and earth was opened and She was lifted to Her abode in Jannat.

Abu Moosa al-Ash'ari Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said: "The men who attain perfection are many, but there are no woman who have attained perfection apart from Aasiyah the wife of Pharaoh and Maryam bint 'Imraan, and the superiority of 'Aa'ishah over all other women is like the superiority of thareed* over all other foods." (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3230; Muslim, 2431)

* Thareed - A type of food beloved to Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam.

Ibn 'Abbaas Radiyallahu Anhu said: Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam drew four lines on the ground, then he said, "Do you know what this is?" We said, "Allah and His Messenger know best." The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The best of the women of Paradise are Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid, Faatimah bint Muhammad, Aasiyah bint Mazaahim the wife of Pharaoh, and Maryam bint 'Imraan - may Allah be pleased with them." (Narrated by Ahmad, 2663. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami', 1135)

Anas Radiyallahu Anhu narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said: "Sufficient for you among the women of the world are Maryam the daughter of 'Imraan. Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid, Faatimah bint Muhammad and Aasiyah the wife of Pharaoh." (Narrated and classed as saheeh by al-Tirmidhi, 3878)

Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar said: Among the virtues of Aasiyah the wife of Pharaoh is that she chose death over royal privilege and torment in this world over the luxury in which she was living. And her insight concerning Moosa Alaihis Salaam was correct when she said "A comfort of the eye for me" [al-Qasas 28:9 - interpretation of the meaning].
