Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded a similar narration, [without the mention of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah’s question] on the authority of Sayyiduna Al Bara ibn Al ‘Azib (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

Sayyidatuna ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) says, ‘I said, O Rasulullah! This Ummah will be put through a test in the grave, I am a weak woman, how will I manage?’ Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘Allah makes those who have Iman firm with the Firm Word [the Kalimah] in this world and the Next World’ [Surah Ibrahim, Verse: 27]

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
