    Aayesha

    Editors' note: Aayesha (Aayesha as-Siddiqah, ‘the one who affirms the Truth’) was the daughter of Abu Bakr, Mohammed’s trusted friend and advisor. She became Mohammed’s youngest wife and was a very spirited warrior woman who led battalions. She was also the most knowledgeable of Muslim women in sacred law, religion and Islamic custom. After the Prophet’s death leading figures among the Companions of the Prophet came to her for guidance.
