Zara’s Nikah 29 June 2020: Zara, Reema and Kabir comes to restaurant, he pulls out chairs for them and sit with them. Reema asks if he is hurt? he says no. Zara thanks him for helping. Kabir says I would have done it for any girl. Reema says there is no difference between Zara and any woman?
KAbir says if a man doesnt help woman in need then he is not a man. He says I want to say that you shouldnt wear clothes like that. She says what clothes? he says those which showed your body. She says what was wrong with them? he says they show off body more. Zara says so what? Kabir says they provoke goons and they get chance to take photos and harass. Zara says you think that I should ask all goons before making my wardrobe so it wont make their animal come out? Kabir says I am just saying to follow code of conduct of Islam. Zara says God have given code of conduct for men too, they have to keep eyes lower, he says yes.
Zara says then tell those goons to not come in girls’ trial rooms, we can wear anything we want and if they provoke men then its their problem, not ours.. goons or educated men like you have same cheap thoughts. Kabir says you keep having fight between man and woman but if you had worn burqa today then this wouldnt have happened, he leaves.
Shahbaz Ahmed recalls how head priest Irfan didnt listen to him on instant divorce bill. He meets some man Khalid. Shahbaz says you are member of sharia board, its time you take on your duties, call a meeting. Khalid says whats the agenda? Shahbaz says tell them that vice president Shahbaz Ahmed wants to give resignation, he leaves.
Zara is on bike with Reema. Zara says what rubbish he said? that our clothes provoke men, all men are same except my father Irfan. Reema asks her to calm down and drive scooty. Zara drives it and smiles.
Shahbaz comes home and recalls how he made Kabir promise to become head priest of town. He sees all women smiling and asks what is happening? why you are all looking in kitchen? who is making food there? his daughter says we have hired a new cook, he says what Ayesha(his wife)? She says yes and calls male cook.. it turns out to be Kabir cooking there. Shahbaz sees him in chef’s clothing and glares at him, He says to Ayesha that what is this? men are not meant to work at home, you know what I want him to become, he asks him to get ready for meeting.
Zara asks her father if she can go to meeting with him? Mom says no, Zara says I am educated. Mom says girls are not educated to work, they do it to know difference between good and bad. Zara says our religion asks to spread education. Mom says our family didnt have women work with men, you cant go. Irfan says no one can other than board members, we will talk about it later, he leaves. Zara says to mom why you talk like that. Mom says it never happened, what will people say? Zara says we can change, why we shouldnt do what you didnt do? Mom says its called culture and traditions. Zara says I want to live my life freely. Mom says no one stopped you, whole house is yours, live like you want, she smiles and leaves but Zara is hurt.
In sharia board meeting, Shahbaz says to members that I am founding member of this board, we all can position to anyone in our place so I want to give my position to my son Kabir, I want him to become member and also vice president, he became priest recently. Irfan asks if anyone has objection to that? all say no. Shahbaz calls Kabir. Kabir greets Irfan and others. Irfan says we welcome you and hope that like your father, you serve this nation too, he says I hope so. Irfan says you have to take oath, Kabir says ‘I Kabir, promise to follow Quran and work for this country’s benefit’. All congratulate him. Shahbaz says now I want to talk about something, the topic of instant divorce.. Irfan says we have already talked about it and we have already finalized decision, we will take decision here and now you are not member so your son is member and you dont have any right in this committee, I would request you to leave. Kabir is hurt. Shahbaz cant believe it and leaves. Kabir goes behind him after asking Irfan. Kabir comes to Shahbaz, he asks him to go inside, he says but.. Shahbaz says you want to take revenge of my insult? so take that chair of Irfan, go.. he leaves. Kabir looks on.
Shahbaz meets Khalid, Khalid says Kabir did well, Irfan likes him a lot, his voice and knowledge is great, I am sorry I didnt take stand for you. Shahbaz says I cant bear this anymore, bring some weakness of Irfan then I wont spare him, he leaves. Khalid looks on.
Irfan’s wife asks why he is worried? Irfan says I am shocked, one man in board thinks that I dont know anything but his son is sensible. Zara comes there and asks what about my future? Mom says girl’s future is decided when she is born, you should learn to work in home, to make your inlaws happy. Zara says then you shouldnt have sent me to study. Mom says your father wanted you to study. Irfan says we run many schools and there is a place for teacher, you can give interview there but I cant recommend, vice president of board have duty to give position to teachers and new vice president (Kabir) is very good.
Kabir comes to his sister, she is miffed with him. Kabir takes her phone so she will talk to him. Irfan calls Kabir, Kabir says yes? Irfan says you know we serve nation, one school is run by us, there is a teacher position available there, there is one applicant, take her interview and if she is capable then hire her, Kabir says okay and ends call.
Kabir comes to Shahbaz, Shahbaz says you are upcoming head priest of city. Kabir says Irfan called and asked me to take interview for a teachers position. Shahbaz says if he is taking interest then it must be someone from his clan, reject that person even if applicant is capable, we have to defeat Irfan. Kabir says that is against our religion, Shahbaz says but its good for politics. Kabir says we are not politicians but priests. Shahbaz says you have to do politics to do good in society, I want people to have nice leader. Kabir says right so head should know difference between right and wrong and he should always do justice irrespective of anyone infront of him, he leaves. Shahbaz says now I am sure you can be head priest of whole country.
Zara is giving mock interview to Reema, Reema asks if she have experience? Zara says no but I have taught my friends. Reema says you wont be selected like this. Zara makes her wear her father’s coat and turban to have a more feel. Zara says I feel I have guts and determination to teach, experience doesnt matter if you have will to change. Reema says great and hugs her. Irfan sees it and says vice chairman will have a tough time.
Kabir is leaving home, mom blesses him. Alina takes off evil eye from him and says you are looking so beautiful, if applicant it a girl then she can cast eye. Kabir laughs. Imran comes home, Kabir greets him and leaves. Imran says to Alina that I will show your would be Bhabhi, all are stunned.
Zara is leaving for interview, mom covers her head with dupatta and says now its good. Irfan blesses her and says even if you fail then its first step to success, I will pray for your success. Zara says have faith in me. Reema says my grandma says you should eat yogurt and sugar before leaving for big work, Zara’s mom eyes her. Irfan says eat fast and leaves, Zara eats and leaves with Reema. Mom says this Reema girl is not good, whats the need of eating yogurt? Irfan says its not about yogurt but determination which our girl has.
Zara and Reema comes to school. Receptionist take her to office. Zara sees Kabir sitting there and is stunned, they recall their argument. Zara says you? he says you?
Zara comes to interview. She sees Kabir there, Kabir says why you are here? Zara says your school needs educated teacher so I am here.

Zara says you are vice president of Sharia board? He says yes, he asks did you forget your burqa again? she says I believe in eyes shame. He asks why did you wear burqa that day? she says to show to my mom, I dont want to discuss my personal life here.
Kabir says I understand your talk but this is about building kids’ future so we cant hire people with thoughts like that. Zara says you know I can take place here easily but I wont because I know people like you live with taking side of wrong whole life and working with them is an insult for me so I wont work here, she leaves as Kabir looks on.
Imran is showing some clip to Alina. Zara’s clip of train plays where she says that women and men are equal and when women try to say it then they are given divorce easily. Kabir says they divorce breaks man’s house too, if relation can be made from saying qubool hai, can be broken by saying divorce three times. Zara says we have a say in qubool hai but dont have a say in divorce, you cant break relation without woman’s say in it. Shahbaz sees the video too and asks who she is? Zeenat says she is head priest Irfan’s daughter, we met her a milad. Shahbaz thinks I have found Irfan’s weakness.
Shahbaz is in car and recalls how Irfan asked him to leave meeting as he doesnt have any say in it. Shahbaz meets Khalid and says I have a work, you have to find case of instant divorce, make someone divorce but do it, i have found a weakness of Irfan. Khalid says some relative of mine got divorced by her husband, whats his weakness? Shahbaz says his daughter, just bring a meeting for this matter. Khalid says board is closed off for today. Shahbaz says call them all, tell them its urgent, meeting should happen today, keep it at Irfan’s house so his daughter will be there too, he leaves. Khalid arranges for meeting.
Irfan offers namaz. Zara comes back and takes blessing from him. Irfan says your face is showing that your interview didnt went well. Zara says person there is so bad, he says Kabir Ahmed? she says yes, you know him? he says yes, he is nice, educated and mannered. Zara says he is too traditional. Irfan says tell me why you fought with him? Zara says he has old thoughts, he doesnt see changes, I rejected him before he could take my interview, she leaves. Mom says this happened because of yogurt. Irfan says today is meeting here, prepare for breakfast, she says I have done arrangements.
Shahbaz comes to Kabir and asks about interview. Kabir says I know that girl from before, I met her in train, we cant hire her. Shahbaz says she is the same girl who met you in train? you know she is head priest Irfan’s daughter, and we have to go to his house today, he is stunned and says what? he says there is meeting today about instant divorce case, board have to decide if divorce happened or not, I want you prepared, read and research all divorce cases sharia handled. Kabir says I will revise those, will you come? Shahbaz says I will make them feel my presence for sure.
Kabir comes to Irfan’s house. He knocks on door, Zara opens it and is stunned to see him, she recalls their recent argument, he looks away from her, Zara says what are you doing here? he says came to meet your father. Zara says what work you have with him? you want to talk bad about my thinking and clothes? go do your work, she is about to close door. Other members come there, Khalid asks Kabir to come inside, he smirks at Zara and says I am vice chairman of board, he goes in house.
Meeting starts, woman servant brings juices for all. Zara is passing by room and looks at Kabir through door, he points at his juice and hints if she wants some? She glares at him. Irfan comes there and greets all. Irfan asks Kabir to sit beside him not away. Kabir smirks at Zara and sits beside him, Zara leaves. Irfan makes them meet a couple, Irfan says this husband gave instant divorce to his wife, Kabir you are young so we want your opinion first. Kabir says you all are experienced, he asks man if he said divorce three times? he says yes, he asks was he ill mentally that time? he says no I was angry. Kabir asks wife if she heard divorce? she says yes. Kabir says as far as my studies, divorce happened and there is no doubt about it. Irfan asks members who agree with Kabir. Majority agrees with him. Irfran says divorce is not liked by God and Prophet, in this case instant divorce happened, he is about to sign on papers when Shahbaz comes there and says stop head. Irfan says you here?
Kabir is confused seeing him. Shahbaz says I know I cant talk in board meeting but as dutiful citizen, I want to say something. His man sets up a laptop. Irfan says what you want to say? Shahbaz says I want to say that you have no right to decide about instant divorce, all are stunned and gets up. Irfan says who took that right from me? Shahbaz says her name is Zara Siddiqui, daughter for Irfran. Irfan says Shahabaz! Shahbaz says just watch the video. Video of Zara talking against instant divorce in train plays, how she said that woman have no say in instant divorce so its not valid. Kabir looks on. Irfan is dejected.
Zara messages Reema that Kabir came to her house. Irfan comes there and takes phone from her, he glares at her. Zara says what happened? Irfan says did you argue about instant divorce in train? she says yes but.. Irfan says whole board saw that video, now listen, in one minute you will come to board and tell that whatever you said in train was just to win an argument and you believe in instant divorce like me, he leaves. Zara is stunned.
Zara takes dupatta on head and comes to meeting room. She greets everyone and glares at Kabir. Khalid says whats your opinion about instant divorce, tell us. Shahbaz says talk daughter, what you said in train about this, can you repeat it? Zara is tensed and looks at Irfan who nods at her. Zara says whatever you people saw in video was just to win an argument, I have same belief on instant divorce as Irfan.. I was asked to say this.. but this is not true. Irfan is stunned and says Zara? Zara says forgive me father but I cant lie here, you have taught me that there is no place for lie in Islam, whatever I said in train is my thinking, my belief..
Monday update Zara’s Nikah 29 2020: I feel instant divorce is not in favor of women. Kabir says all divorces in past were wrong according to you? Zara says forget about past, lets make good future for women.. they can give birth to brave sons.. Khalid asks why she is against it? Zara says instant divorce is not mentioned in Quran and Hadith and I dont believe in following rituals.. Khalid says now you will tell us about that? Zara says before government remind us, I think we should listen to people saying right, I know you all Islam more than me but I want you all to remember Prophet’s saying that good men are who behave nicely with women. Irfan says you have said what you wanted, now you can leave. She nods and leaves.Mom asks Zara what she said? Zara says I said what father wanted but I also said truth. Zara runs to her room and cries.
