    Asma bint Abu Bakr

    (d. 693 )

    Daughter of the first caliph, Abu Bakr , and the elder half-sister of Muhammad 's wife Aishah . During the hijrah ( 622 ), when Muhammad and Abu Bakr took shelter in a cave to evade the Meccans who were in pursuit, Asma lowered to them food tied to her belt, which she had torn into two, thus giving her the nickname Dhat al-Nitaqayn (she of the two belts). Married al-Zubayr ibn al-Awamm ; their son Abd Allah is considered to be the first Muslim child to be born in Medina.
