I do 9 February 2022: Rashid comes and asks shirin if they had a talk with their relative where badi bi has gone. Rashid is surprised that badi bi is always with the family, in ramzaan and this time she isnt. As razia tries to leave, to avoid a confrontation, rashid asks her what did badi bi say before going, as it never has happened before like this, that she hasnt talked with her own son for so long. He continuously demands to know while razia is speechless, but she salvages the situation by diverting their attention at the moon, thats come out. all are excited for this. Rashid confronts razia asking her where is badi bi, as the relative who she has said badi bi had gone to, called up and never mentioned anything about badi bi being there. Razia is surprised.
While they do the normal rituals, ayan finds humaira praying with folded hands and eyes closed, the way that Hindus pray, and not like the Muslims, with open palms, in god’s praise. He does it for her, and she clutches back at his hands, and they both awkwardly face each other. They congratulate each other for the sighting of the moon. As rashid begins to go towards razia, he gets Jamila Khala’s call, and is shocked when he finds out that Badi bi isnt there, and is all the more shocked when he knows that she never went there. He accusingly confronts razia, while the whole family is boggled and razia is nervous.
Rashid confronts razia asking her where is badi bi, as the relative who she has said badi bi had gone to, called up and never mentioned anything about badi bi being there. Razia is surprised. Razia says that he’s questioning her as if she knows everything, and if she checks every movement of hers. rashid asks why would she lie. razia says that she wont tell her the truth, since she doesnt like razia at all. She asks him to find out when he mets badi bi. Rashid says how would she find out. shirin too expresses surprise. Mamujaan too asks why didnt she ask clearly when badi bi was leaving. Razia says that badi bi left in haste, and maybe there was some important work. shirin asks what to do now to search her. Rashid says that they would have to investigate amongst their relatives, and if still they dont know they would inform the police, eyeing razia suspiciously, who is shocked herself.
Location: Asad’s residence.
Zoya asks asad as to why is he doing this again and again. Asad says that he felt that he has already explained. Zoya says that he may have told that he doesnt want to marry her, but he hasnt told her the reason for it. As he begins to go, zoya says that ramzaan is starting today, and he cant lie and has to tell the true reason. He asks her if she wants to know the truth, and goes on to tell her. he reminds her that he had told that she doesnt deserve him, but the truth is that he doesnt deserve her, and says that he hopes that her question is answered.(MITWA MOMENT) Asad leaves, while zoya is in tears.
Razia is alarmed at the mention of police. She starts to reprimand him for being so tensed, as badi bi would come soon, and today is an auspicious occassion and he shouldnt talk like this today. Razia asks the girls to go and get sweets. But rashid is unconvinced and still talks with ayan.
Razia is surprised not to find humaira there. humaira is shown with the bunch of keys trying out to open the lock. Razia iis approaching her room, wondering where humaira went, and hopes that there’s no new trouble. Humaira is trying frantically to open the door and finally manages it. As she opens it, she finds nothing other than the usual there, except for clothes and other items.
She turns around and is shocked to find razia, standing there confronting her, that she knew humaira wont be at peace. She goes on to say that she could doubt her own mother, but then composes saying that she’s her mother’s age, and if she would have done the same with her mother too. Razia closes the almirah, and asks if the search is over, and says that she had told that there’s nothing in the almirah. Humaira says that there mightnt be anything now, but that doesnt prove that there never was anything in it. razia is alarmed. humaira eyes a locked door, and leaves. razia smirks and thinks that she would be difficult to get rid off, and if she is clever then she is extra clever, and which she is finding isnt even in the store room, that she now has a doubt on. She closes the door, and looks under the bed, to find badi bi there, saying that she shifted her there at the right time, or else her secret would have been up today.

Dilshad expresses her surprise at asad’s behaviour. She says that she knows that she’s angry at everyone including asad. she says that she has come here to request her not to leave them and go. She asks if zoya still loves asad, and then answers her own question in affirmative, and thinks that god knows whats going on in asad’s mind, and she knows that one day, that love would get him to her.
dilshad says that she has lost the right to be with her, but she pleads her not to go, and she would pray during the ramzaan that everything would be alright, and she doesnt want zoya to leave. Zoya wipes dilshad’s tears, and motions that she wont go. they hug each other emotionally, both in tears.

He asks for strength not to be weak when he sees into zoya’s eyes. Zoya too prays that she knows that asad has been forced to take this descision as she knows that he loves her very much, and she has to win him back. She says that she has taken a hard descision and asks for strength to bear through it, and be able to fight for her love.(MITWA) All finish their prayers.
