Was Asma (Radhiyallahu Anha) a relative of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Q: Who was Asma (radhiyallahu anha) to our Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)? Was she a mahram? 

A: If you are referring to Asmaa bint Abi Bakr (radhiyallahu anhuma) then she was not a mahram.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
