She became the consort of Ibrahim and on 15 April 1642, gave birth to her only son, Şehzade Suleiman (future Suleiman II). During Ibrahim's reign her stipend consisted of 1,300 aspers a day. He also gifted the incomes of Bolu Sanjak to her. She was described as a simple-hearted woman of unruly character. She was deeply loved by Ibrahim, and was his favorite consort although she was not his legal wife.
After the deposition and death of Sultan Ibrahim in 1648, his eldest son, Mehmed IV ascended the throne, after which Aşub settled in the Old Palace. This brought her thirty-nine years of imprisonment in the Old Palace.

Kösem was planning to kill her daughter-in-law and dethrone her grandson Sultan Mehmed with the help of some high officers in the yeniçeri corps, and to place Şehzade Suleiman, on the throne.

Aşub herself was spared from execution since she was suspected in plotting against Turhan and her son, the Sultan. 
In 1672-73, she created an endowment at Istanbul.
Together with Ibrahim, Aşub had one son:
