Daughter of Abu Bakr she married Muhammad and became his third wife. According to hadith (Sahih Bukhari 7.88, 8.151, 9.140, 7.18, 5.236, 7.90, 5.234; Sunan Abu Da'ud 41.4915-4917), she was married to Muhammad at about the age of six, and the marriage was consumated when she was nine. Some Muslims however argue that these hadith are incorrect, and that she was not married at such a young age. Her husband Muhammad died when she was fourteen.

Muslims gave Aisha the title Ummul Mu'minin, mother of believers.
