Hatice Alime Hüma Hatun (Ottoman Turkish: هما خاتون; c. 1400–1449) was the fourth wife of Ottoman Sultan Murad II and was valide sultan during the first reign of her son Sultan Mehmed II for two years from 1444–1446.
She was born in the Devrekani county of Kastamonu Province in modern-day Turkey. Every year, people in Devrekani commemorate her birth as part of the "Celebrations for the Conquest of Istanbul." She was married to Murad II in 1426. Little is known of her family background, apart from the fact that an Ottoman inscription (vakfiye) describes her as Hātun binti Abdullah (Daughter of Abdullah) and was from Hum, Hüma meaning a girl/woman from Hum. At that time, people who converted to Islam were given the name Abdullah meaning Servant of God.
Some sources say that she was a princess from the Principality of Zeta and a relative of George Balša, Prince of Zeta. She died in 1449 in Bursa. Her tomb is located at the site known as Hatuniye Tomb to the east of Muradiye Mosque. The quarter where her tomb lies has been known thus far as Hüma Hatun Quarter.
