Ayman al-Zawahiri and Azza Ahmed Marriage
In 1978, Al-Zawahiri married Azza Ahmed Nowari, a philosophy student at Cairo University. There was no music, photographs, or other lighthearted elements for their extremely traditional wedding, which was held at the Continental Hotel on Opera Square.
Al-Zawahiri is said to have been a jihadi emir (commander) for the previous ten years, although Azza reportedly was unaware of this until many years later, when the United States invaded Afghanistan in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks. One of Zawahiri’s four wives, Umaima Hassan, praised Muslim women for participating in the Arab Spring in an online message published in June 2012.
Al-Zawahiri and his wife Azza had five children together: Mohammed, Khadiga’s twin, Fatima (1981), Umayma (1983), Nabila (1986), and Khadiga (1987), who was described as a “delicate, well-mannered youngster” and “the favourite of his older sisters.”
Ten years after Mohammed was born, Azza gave birth to their daughter Aisha, who has Down syndrome. After being waterboarded in February 2004, Abu Zubaydah reported that Abu Turab Al-Urduni had wed a daughter of al-Zawahiri.
In the first half of 2005, one of Al-three Zawahiri’s surviving wives gave birth to a daughter named Nawwar.
After the September 11 attacks on the United States, Azza, Ayman al-first Zawahiri’s wife, and two of their six children, Mohammad and Aisha, were killed in a US airstrike of Afghanistan in late December 2001. Following an American aircraft bombing on a Taliban-controlled structure in Gardez, Azza became buried beneath the rubble of a guesthouse roof. She “refused to be excavated” out of concern for her modesty since “men would see her face,” and the next day she passed away from her wounds.
Her son Mohammad was also brutally killed in the same home. While Afghan volunteers worked to resuscitate Azza, her four-year-old daughter with Down syndrome, Aisha, died from exposure in the cool night.
