Asiya ( Arabic: آسية), also known as Asiya bint Muzahim, is revered by Muslims as one of the greatest women of all time, other three are Mary (mother of Jesus), Khadija (wife of Muhammad) and Fatimah (daughter of Muhammad). She was the wife of the Pharaoh (in Arabic pronounced "Fir'awn"), who reigned during Moses's (Arabic: Musa) time. The Qur'an chronicles her as a great person. She declared her faith in the message of God after witnessing the miracle of Moses in the Court of Pharaoh and after witnessing the death of another believing woman under torture. The Pharaoh tried to turn her away from the God. But Asiya refused to reject the God and teaching of Moses. On the Pharaoh's order, she was tortured to death.
