Aisha bint Abi Bakr (Arabic عائشة) was the first and most beloved of Muhammads wives.[1] She is often described as the "Mother of All Believers".[2] There has been controversy over the age of Aisha when she married Muhammad at age 6 or 7. Two hadiths narrated by Aisha herself[3][4] describe her as being six or seven years old at the time of marriage, and nine years old at the consummation of the marriage.
