Question: Is it authentically reported that the Prophet ﷺ will marry Maryam (mother of ‘Isa) and Asiya (wife of Pharaoh)?

Answer: The marriage of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) has been narrated through a number of chains.  Some scholars, such as Al Hakim consider it to be sound (sahih).  Other scholars, such as Ibn Katheer, have considered the narrations to be weak (daeef) and say that all narrations on this topic have an issue in one way or another.  Ibn Asakir narrates the Hadith in his famous book Al Tarikh but others, including Ibn Kathir say that the narration used is weak.

One thing to mention is that although a Hadith may be classified as being weak due to the chain of narrators, weakness does not mean that it is false and untrue. So, even if we were to take the position that the Hadiths are weak, that weakening of the narration does not negate that the reality of what was mentioned possibly being true.
