Zara’s Nikah 26 August 2020: Zara comes to Salma’s house, she hugs her and makes her sit down. Salma asks if everything is fine? Zara says tell me one thing, what is husband and wife’s duties?
Salma says husband goes out of house, they work hard, fight with everyone to bring bread and butter home and wife take care of husband, she make home for them, she becomes a support for husband and provide them support in their troubles. Zara says you are right but world has changed, women can take care of themselves, husbands take responsibility but they dont respect their wives, women are standing up, today Abida took step against her husband and soon all women will stand against injustice.
Salma says calm down, you think so much, I will bring dates for you, she leaves. Zara murmurs if Kabir took my side in sharia board then we would have been enjoying chaat together. She gets Abida’s call and says what? Wasim? forcing you? I am coming, she ends call. Zara calls Kabir and says Abida is in trouble, I have to go, Kabir says you are not going anywhere, Zara ends call and leaves.
Zara is driving on her bike. Kabir is in house and says I dont know where she is going, I should go and ask Wasim. Miraj calls him and asks how is he? I wanted to suggest you to keep a control on your wife otherwise it can bring problems in your life. Kabir says what do you mean to say? Miraj laughs and ends call.
Miraj calls Nilofar and says Zara is going to Abida’s house, you have to send Kabir there, it will bring a gap between them and Kabir will give her second divorce, just send Kabir behind her.
Nilofar comes to Kabir and asks if he is fine? Kabir says I am worried about Zara, she has gone to meet some woman. Nilofar says Abida? I know her address, she tells him house address, Kabir says this is not a lie? she says no, he thanks her and leaves. Nilofar calls Miraj and says work is done, he says you have made me happy, he ends call.
Zara comes to Abida’s house and looks around, she doesnt find anyone in house. She sees some envelopes there and sees its marriage invitation of Abida and Qasim.
Abida is dressed as bride, Wasim says to her that you have to marry Qasim otherwise I will make your hell. His daughter asks him to leave her mother. Abida says dont do so much injustice, be scared of God. Daughter says father you are bad. He says stop it, I will not spare you. Miraj comes there and says you can marry Wasim after Qasim divorces you.
Kabir comes to Abida’s house and finds Zara there, he hugs her tightly. Zara shows him wedding card and says if you had listened to me then Abida wouldnt be facing this, Wasim is forcing her in another marriage. Kabir says let me handle this. Zara says I have to go there and stop it, I cant see injustice. Kabir shouts that why dont you ever listen to me? they wont like there, let me go there and handle it. Zara says why are you shouting? he says sorry and says I will handle this issue.
Wasim grabs Abida’s arm and asks her to marry Qasim otherwise it will not be good for her and he will hurt their daughter. Miraj says think about your daughter and marry him.
Zara asks Kabir to promise to stop Abida’s halala nikah. Kabir promises her and asks her to go home, Zara smiles and leaves.
Kabir drives to wedding venue. Abida sits on stage with Qasim to get married. Wasim smirks. She cries and says I agree to marriage, she signs on papers. Kabir comes in venue and asks if he nikah is done? Priest says yes. Kabir says I want to know if this bride was forced to do this marriage? all say no, she was not forced. Qasim says she was not forced, she agreed to this marriage, you can ask her. Kabir comes to Abida and says you can tell me if you were forced to do this marriage. Abida recalls Wasim’s words that he will hurt their daughter. Zara calls Kabir and asks what is going on there? did you reach there and stop Nikah? Kabir says Abida’s nikah halala happened. Zara is stunned and says nikah halala happened and you couldnt save her? it was not nikah but an injustice using religion, you couldnt do anything? we didnt get justice for a poor girl? I am ashamed of myself. Kabir ends call. Zara screams and cries.
Kabir comes home, Shahbaz asks him to have food. Kabir asks where is Zara? Ayesha says she went to her father’s house, Ayesha asks him to have food, Kabir says I am not hungry. Zeenat says why are you angry? Alina says you look cute in anger, Ayesha asks whats the matter? Kabir leaves.
Zara meets Abida and says Wasim made you marry Qasim so he doesnt have to give expense to you, think about your daughter, I know you were forced to do this marriage, Abida says no I took this decision. Zara says why are you lying? Wasim will act like animals with you again, why are you backing out, just come to sharia board and give your statement, then nobody can do anything with you, your one statement can bring justice to many girls, my marriage is relying on this case, your one decision can destroy my marriage, would you want that? we are relying on you. Abida says you are right, I have to raise for not only myself but for women of my nation, I promise to come to sharia board tomorrow and give my statement. Zara sees Qasim coming and wears veil, she says to Abida that I will wait for you tomorrow, she greets Qasim and leaves.
Shahbaz says to Kabir that you said very nice words for nation in sharia board, Shahbaz says to Kabir that you have guts to become head priest but you duties in house too, like controlling your wife, women are respect of house and if they go out of limit then we have to control them and once this house’s respect is gone then we cant get it back, we will find solution of Abida’s case but you can find solution of Zara’s problems and you have to. Kabir nods.
Zara says to Irfan and Salma that Kabir told me that he would not let Abida have halala but he failed. Salma says dont say it like that for your husband, you wont find a good husband like Kabir. Zara says why people keep praising husbands and dont talk about women? think about Abida, I promised to get her justice and couldnt get it because of Kabir, she asks Irfan to help her and nullify Abida’s halala nikah. Salma says stop her, fate happened. Irfan says I cant do anything if thing is wrong but its under law. Zara says why are we not talking about halala? everyone knows that Wasim forced her for that, its wrong and people have started halala as a business, Wasim is doing injustice. Irfan says those agencies who are taking money to do halala that are wrong, we need proofs against them to take any action. Zara says I have talked to Abida, she will come to give her statement. Irfan says you are going against Kabir by doing this. Irfan says to Zara that God forbid even if Abida gives statement and even then you cant prove your case the what will you do? Zara says whats wrong is wrong and God will prove it, I have faith in him, she leaves.
Zara comes home. Alina says Kabir was angry, where were you? He didnt eat anything, you can pacify him with your antics, you trapped him in your lure from start. Ayesha comes there and says to Zara that you both are like my kids, dont forget your duty, you both can have fight outside house but inside, please pacify each other and remain bonded, he didnt eat anything so go and eat with him. Zara nods and leaves.
Zara comes to her room, Kabir sees her. Zara lights candles. Kabir ignores her. Zara says come here. Kabir says I ate. Zara says I wanted to tell you that rats must be in house, I saw them.. Okay I am lying, come here now, see what I have cooked, rice, kabab, kheer and ghulab jamon. Kabir is tempted but ignores her. Zara sits with him and says eat with me, he says I am not hungry, Zara says why are you looking at food then? you do so much drama that if it was some other girl then she would have gone to her room. Kabir’s stomach grumbles, Zara says stop acting. She pulls him to dinner, Kabir starts eating, Zara makes him eat it.
Nilofar says to Miraj that I saw Kabir and Zara enjoying dinner, they didnt fight. Miraj says I thought after Abida’s case, they will fight. Nilofar says your planning failed again, I told you that Zara is very clever, Miraj slaps her and says she can be clever but I will make them divorced at any cost.
Kabir gets call and says okay. He is in lounge and calls Zara. All come there. Kabir says to Zara that why are you still perusing Abida’s case when she married on her own. Zara says I have proofs that Wasim forced her to marry Qasim. Kabir says you started again? Abida told me that she agreed to marry again, its their personal life. Zara says no its about our religion, Wasim can force Abida to marry Qasim, if nikah halala stops then most women will not face injustice.
Kabir says the tradition that has been followed for 1400 years, you want to end it? you know that this tradition was made in favor of women. Zara says yes I know that, this rule was made to make men scared who used to give divorces to their wives easily, Hazrat Umer used to punish men who used to make women go through that, tell me if I am wrong? Alina says no she is right. Shahbaz says now you will decide what is wrong and what is right? you will make fun of us in public, people are talking about you both already. Kabir asks Zara if she will take this case back or not? Zara says I am sorry but I am bound by my thoughts and I want to prove a thing so I should be given chance. Kabir says what if you cant prove? Zara says I will prove it. She holds his hands and look in his eyes. Kabir looks on, Zara leaves. All are stunned.
Zara and Kabir are in sharia board. Wasim comes there and introduces himself. Irfan asks him to stand in witness box. Irfan asks whats the matter? Wasim says I said sorry to Abida about my mistakes, I went to Saudi Arabia, I got distracted by its luxuries so I divorced Abida. Kabir says I want to question him. Kabir says I want to know if you ever forced Abida? Wasim says never, Kabir says why didnt you give her mahar and expenses after divorce? Wasim says I am ashamed for that. Zara says are you not ashamed that you forced her for nikah halala? Kabir says this case is not about nikah halala.
Wasim says I requested her but I never forced her for halala, Zara says you are lying, Wasim says no, I realized her value after she left, I realized I wont find a wife like her and God wants me to remarry again and Abida wants me back so she did halala. Zara says you forced her to nikah so you dont have to give expense to her. Kabir asks if she has any proof about that? Zara says I have a witness and that is Abida, all are stunned. Abida comes there with her daughter. She greets everyone. Wasim glares at her. Abida stands in box, Zara says tell everyone if you were forced to do this halala? All look on..
Abida says I.. Zara says dont worry, we are with you, tell me if you were forced for halala? did Wasim blackmail you? was it against your rights? you are protected here so dont be scared. Tell us the truth. Abida recalls how Wasim said that if she doesnt marry Qasim then he will hurt their daughter. Abida says I was not forced. Zara is stunned and says what? Abida says it was my decision. Zara says truth is that you were forced, you told me that, dont worry, tell them, I am with you. Kabir tries to pull her away.
Zara says to Abida that you dont have to lie, you dont have to be scared, I am with you, tell them that you were forced to do halala. Abida says Wasim didnt force me to do halala, Zara says you dont have to lie, why are you under pressure? One priest says Abida said what she wanted to, you cant put pressure on her so she says what you want to hear. Irfan asks Qasim if he got any money to do this nikah? Qasim says no I didnt get any money or threat to do this marriage, whatever happened, happened as per my will. Zara is disappointed. Irfan says after hearing both sides, I make Abida and Qasim’s marriage legal. He ends meeting, Abida looks away from Zara.
