Brief Introduction of Hazrat Bibi Asiya

Brief Introduction of Hazrat Bibi AsiyaHazrat Bibi Asiya is revered by Muslims as one of the greatest women of all time. Hazrat Asiya was the wife of the Pharaoh. Unlike her evil husband, she was a pious and believing woman who accepted the faith that Hazrat Musa and Hazrat Haroon were preaching. She realized that faith in ALLAH was far more important and was thus exalted by ALLAH amongst the women of her generation.

Hazrat Asiya and her maids were at the neighboring Nile river one day. To their amazement, they found a crate floating in the river. Asiya immediately ordered the crate to be brought out on shore. Although the maids thought there was a treasure in the crate, they in fact found a baby boy inside. Hazrat Asiya instantly fell in love with him and knew that this boy, Hazrat Moosa, was no ordinary baby. She told the Pharaoh about the baby and convinced her husband to allow the baby to live with them. The wife of Pharaoh said: “(Here is) joy of the eye, for me and for thee: slay him not. It may be that he will be use to us, or we may adopt him as a son.” And they perceived not (what they were doing)!

Hazrat Asiya then offered Hazrat Musa’s mother to live in their household as Hazrat Moosa’s wet nurse and paid her for her services, being unaware that the wet nurse was Hazrat Moosa’s mother. Thus, mother and son were reunited again.

The tradition holds that Hazrat Asiya worshiped ALLAH in secret and praying in disguise fearing her husband. She died while being tortured by her husband, who had discovered her monotheism.
