Aisha

Aisha was the daughter of Abu Bakr and married the prophet Muhammad to become his third wife.

According to hadith, she was married to Muhammad at about the age of six, and the marriage was consummated 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 died when she was fourteen.

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