As per Fatawa-e-Razvia, Bibi Aasia (Radi Allah Anha, who was wife of Pharoah Ramesis II) and Bibi Maryam (Radi Allah Anha, who was mother of Prophet Isa A.S) will be amongst the wives of Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) in Jannah.

The same fact is also mentioned in the following page of nooremadinah.net
Now, some people have an opinion that these quotes belong to “Imam Ahmad Raza Barelvi” and are confined to a specific sect rather not an open fact, described in Quran and Ahadeeth.
I want to know, is this fact also mentioned in Ahadeeth? If yes, please let me know the references of those Ahadeeth and please issue your Fatwa regarding this fact, whether it is true or not

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
It is recorded in the books of Tafseer and Hadith that Aasiyah (the wife of Fir’own) and Maryam (the mother of Isa- alayhis salaam-) will be amongst the wives of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) in Jannah.
Hafidh Ibn Katheer (Rahimahullah) has stated that Aasiyah and Maryam will be the wives of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) in Jannah, under the commentary of the verse:
عَسَى رَبُّهُ إِنْ طَلَّقَكُنَّ أَنْ يُبْدِلَهُ أَزْوَاجًا خَيْرًا مِنْكُنَّ مُسْلِمَاتٍ مُؤْمِنَاتٍ قَانِتَاتٍ تَائِبَاتٍ عَابِدَاتٍ سَائِحَاتٍ ثَيِّبَاتٍ وَأَبْكَارًا
It is hoped that, if he divorces you, Allah will give him in your place wives better than you, submissive to Allah, believing, devout, penitent, steadfast in worship, fasting, previously married and virgins. (Sura Tahreem: 5)
The word (ثَيِّبَاتٍ– previously married) refers to Aasiyah and the word (وَأَبْكَارًا– virgins) refers to Maryam (Alayhimas salaam). (Tafseer Ibni Katheer, vol 4, pg 501 & 507, Idara Al-Masajid)
Allamah Ali bin Abi Bakr Al-Haythami (Rahimahullah) has recorded the following Hadith:
وعن أبي أمامة قال : سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول لعائشة : أشعرت أن الله قد زوجني في الجنة مريم بنت عمران وكلثم أخت موسى وامرأة فرعون رواه الطبراني وفيه خالد بن يوسف السمتي وهو ضعيف
“Abu Umamah (Radiyallahu anhu) reports: I heard Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) saying to Ayisha (Radiyallaahu anha): Did you know that Allah Ta’ala has married me in Jannah to Maryam (the daughter of Imran), Kulthum (the sister of Musa) and the wife of Fir’own (Asiyah)” (Majma’ Al-Zawaaid, vol 9, pg 218, Maktaba Al-Qudsi)
