ASIYAH اسية
The wife of Pharaoh. One, of the four perfect women (the Virgin Mary, Khadijah, and Fatimah, being the other three). See Mishkatu ‘l-Masabih, xxiv c. 22. She is mentioned in the Qur’an (Sura lxvi. 11): “And God striketh out a parable for those who believe: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, ‘My Lord, build for me a house with Thee in Paradise, and save me from Pharaoh and his works, and save me from the unjust people.”
