Zara says to Reema that we have to help Abida and other women who are getting targeted in this society.
Imran, Zara and Reema comes to nikah center. Imran says to officer that I want to marry this girl, I want to do halala. Officer says who is she to you? Imran says she was my wife, I gave her divorce in anger and now I want her back, can you please do her halala? Officer says no problem, it can happen, we have to arrange for photoshoot to wedding, food, setting and everything, you will need to give money to arrange for fake halala, do you have a person who can marry her? Imran says no. Officer says no worry, we have men who do fake halala, you will need to give money for that too, if woman is ready to share the bed with halala husband then fees will be 50K and if not then you have to give 100K. Zara gets angry and says you have made religion a joke, they leave from there. Reema asks Imran what is halala? Imran says if a man gives divorce to his wife and wants her back then he cant do it as she becomes illegal for him, then girl has to do halala and marry another man, she has to share bed with him only then she can take divorce and go back to her husband. Reema says this is injustice to woman. Zara says women like Abida has to go through it. Imran says I dont know from where consummation in halala has come from.
Zeenat brings hot chocolate for Alina and says you know a guy likes you, he lives in London and is very handsome, his mother wants your picture, which one should I share? Alina says you dont need to send any picture. zeenat says dont worry, you looks good in every picture. Alina says I want to complete my studies. Zeenat says do it, you can wait 2 years to do the marriage. Alina says its doesnt matter if its 2 years or 5 years, I know what happens after marriage, they get divorced and are taunted for life, same is happening with Zara, I want to become independent first, dont send any picture to anyone. Zeenat says what is this way to talk? you used to never talk back, I know who is teaching you, you have started valuing Zara bhabhi too much, she is making you like her, this is wrong. Zara comes there and says what is wrong? Alina runs to her and hugs her, she cries and says I dont want to marry. Zara comes in kitchen and asks Zeenat if she needs help? Zeenat says why dont you leave this house? Zara says till I am here, fulfilling my needs is Kabir’s duty and I am in this house for somedays only. Zeenat says are you playing this Alina to make place in this house? you are showing that you are helping Alina to make place in Kabir’s heart? Zara says dont forget you are a woman too, this word divorce is like a poison and God forbid you should never go through it. Zeenat says dont worry I wont go through it, what is happening with you is on you, that doesnt mean it will happen with Alina. Zara says we all have our fates, anything can happen so dont be too sure. Zeenat says you can say philosophical things but I will get Alina married infront of you. Zara says I promise on you that I wont let Alina marry now. Zeenat says I accept your challenge.
All sit for dinner, Shahbaz asks where is Alina? Zara says she didnt want to eat with everyone so I sent food to her room. Shahbaz says why didnt she want to eat with us? call her for sweet. All look on. Shahbaz asks if there is a problem? Kabir says Zeenat have brought a marriage proposal for Alina, Alina is angry and doesnt want to come out of her room. Shahbaz asks if its Shabir Khan’s son? Zeenat says yes, his son is very nice, they want Alina’s picture to show to the guy, he is studying in London, from a good family, we can get engagement on Bakra Eid and then do marriage after two years. Shahbaz says nothing wrong in that. Zara says sorry but Alina wants to study, she wants to fly and explore her life and then marry. Shahbaz says you are saying like we didnt give her freedom, girls have some restrictions for their safety, she has everything from her father and brothers, she doesnt need anything. Zara says every person have right to fly and explore. Kabir says you dont want to send Alina’s picture to guy? they are nice people then why are you against it? Zara says I am with Alina, she wants to study and has guts to explore her life and she will marry someday, we can marry her with her consent later. Kabir says her consent is not important. Shahbaz says enough, stop this argument, Alina is my daughter and nobody knows whats better for her more than me, I have taken all decisions of this house, Alina will marry with my decision like Kabir and Kashan married. Zara says your decision will be final, you made Kashan and Kabir marry but I am just saying to not marry Alina without her consent, another aspect of marriage is divorce.. all are shocked. Zara says sorry but Islam have given girls right to give their consent in marriage thats why they ask bride first in nikah, Shahbaz says another aspect of marriage is a good life, think about it, he leaves. Kabir says wow, now you are teaching father? Zara says I didnt want to hurt anyone, I am just saying to ask for Alina’s consent, I got married in a big family too but then.. she looks at Kabir. Kabir glares at her and leaves.
In morning, Zara comes to Alina’s room with breakfast. She asks Alina to wake up. Alina says I saw your face in morning, now my whole day will be good. Zara says if you see your face in morning then you will have more good days, you have exams coming up and I remember my and Reema’s exam days. She asks her to get ready. Alina asks if she talked to Kabir that she doesnt want to marry? zara says I talked to him, he is miffed with me, he left without greeting me. Alina says Shahbaz is miffed with me and now if Kabir gets angry too then what will I do? Zara takes her picture, puts a funny filter on it and says if Zeenat ask for your photo then give her this one and groom’s family will runaway. They laugh.
Abida calls Zara and says my husband Wasim came to my house, he wanted to set halala’s date, when I said no then he beat me and threatened me that if I dont take my case back from board and dont do halala then he will take my daughter away, I am tensed, what will I do? Zara says dont worry, I am coming to meet you. Zara calls Kabir, Kabir says dont call me, I have a meeting. Zara says Abida called me, he asks who Abida? Zara says the one who brought halala case, her husband beat her and is forcing her, Kabir says I have a meeting, you call police, he ends call. Zara comes to Nilofar and says I need your help with something but please dont do something that will make me question you, Nilofar says okay, what have I to do? Zara says come with me. Zara comes to Abida’s house, she sees Abida all beaten up and ask her family why didnt they contact police? her family says that no one listens to police. Abida’s father says that police wont listen some poor family. Abida says my husband will not spare me, nobody will help me. Zara says dont worry, I am with you and your husband will have to face me, not some weak woman but me, give me your husband’s name and address and I will find who this man is.
Kabir says to Imran that what God wants? even this meeting went bad. Imran says nobody is ready to invest in project, Kabir says we have to pay lawyer too, Shahbaz is paying right now but I have to give it back to him soon. Miraj arrives there and greets Kabir. Imran says how dare you come here? Miraj says to Kabir you keep this puppy with you, are you still a priest? Kabir grabs him and says Miraj I am a priest and I dont want bloodshed. Miraj says if you get bank loan by killing me then do it. Miraj pushes him away and says you are not powerful, are you not feeling well or Zara is not taking care of you? Kabir gets angry and beats him. Imran pushes him away and says dont do this, its not worth it to have his blood on your hands, he will die on his own, he takes him from there.
Kabir and Imran comes home. Kabir asks Zeenat where is Zara? Zeenat says Zara left home with Nilofar, she was in hurry. Kabir thinks and asks Imran to call her, Imran calls her but she doesnt pick up. Kabir says she must have gone to meet Abida in halala case, Imran calls her again. He asks where is she? He says okay. Imran tells Kabir that Zara is going to Irfan’s house, Kabir says okay I will pick her up in evening. Kabir is about to leave but some men come in his house and says priest Hashmi wants to meet you. Kabir says I never met him. Priest comes there, Kabir kisses his hands. Priest asks him to sit down, priest says I know everything about you, your pending divorce, your sharia board issues and others. Kabir says you can show me the right path. He says I can just suggest and bless you, you know I have many schools, factories in country where muslim people have work studies and work, Kabir says I know everything, Priest says my mission is to help all my men to become capable to live a good life, but I am getting tired and I want to choose you take my mission ahead. Kabir gets elated and says that would be my honor, let me call Shahbaz, Priest says I will meet him later, I want to talk to you today.
Zara comes to Irfan and hugs him. Zara recalls how Abida said that my husband gave me divorce by saying it three times and left me and my girl alone, we had to face everything alone. Zara cries and says I feel for Abida, she will breakdown if she doesnt get justice, please expedite her case. Irfan says sure.
Priest Kibla says to Kabir that I will solve all your troubles, you just have to do one thing for me, its about nikha halala, he tells him some information and says halala cases have put a bad image of us, I want you to fight this case halala case and fight it in favor of halala. Kabir is stunned.
Zara says to Irfan that when I look at Abida, I see my problems are nothing infront of her, her life is nothing less than a hell, when I see her, I forget all my problems but you will see, I will punish her husband nicely that he will get nobody to take help from.
Nilofar comes to a mechanic shop and asks where is Wasim? Wasim comes to her and asks if she wants to repair her car or want some other service? Nilofar asks if he is Wasim? She asks what do you need? he moves near her. Nilofar says if you take another step then I will slap you. Owner of garage comes there and talks to Wasim, owner says to Nilofar that we are not servicing cars today, she says okay, I will come later, she silently takes Wasim’s picture and leaves from there.
Zara comes home, she offers water to Kabir. Kabir says who do you think you are? you have to take care of whole nation but not take care of your husband, zara says how much do you want to scold me? am I your wife or punching bag? Kabir says you are a punching bag as you dont check your phone. Zara checks her phone and sees 11 missed calls from Kabir. Zara says wow I am happy. Kabir says you want to be happy? I will call you many times a day but please stay at home. Zara says I am happy in any case but when I see women bearing so much then my heart hurts, you should see Abida’s condition. Kabir says I think I should handle that halala case. Zara gets happy and hugs him, she says then Abida’s husband will be punished. Kabir says no, I am thinking to fight in favor of nikah halala. She is stunned and says what? Kabir says yes.
Nilofar comes to meet Miraj. Miraj says good to see you. Nilofar says I have befriended Zara and she might become my best friend. Miraj says great, how did you come here? Nilofar says there is a case in sharia board so Zara took me with her, there is some Abida girl who have filed case against nikah halala and Zara is taking her case. Miraj says you dont know how much you have helped me, now I will take revenge from Kabir.
Zara says to Kabir that you know nikah halala have tarnished our image and you are taking its side? Kabir says I am not doing it right away, I will study it, this tradition has been going on years so it must have some benefits. Zara says what are you hiding from me? Kabir says nothing. Zara says tell me what is it? Kabir says Nawab Hashmi came to meet me and thinks that this case is tarnishing our image. Zara says eradicating it is the solution, there are many countries where halala is banned so why cant we do it? Kabir says enough, I am going to fight in favor of it. Zara says I wont let Abida’s halala happen at any cost. Kabir glares at her.
Zara talks to Nilofar and asks what happened with Wasim? Nilofar says he is a very bad man, his character is bad, Zara says you must know many bad people too, whats Miraj’s news? Nilofar says I dont know. Zara says Kabir wants you to become witness in his case against Miraj so stay near.
Miraj comes to Wasim’s garage. Wasim says we are closing the garage. Miraj says I am interested in something else, why do you need halala with Abida? Wasim grabs him and says who the hell are you to ask me if I do halala with Abida or kill her, how do you know her? Miraj says calm down, he gives him money and says why do you need halala with Abida? Wasim tells him something which is muted. Miraj says a girl will come tomorrow to meet you, you have to keep her busy and dont let her go from here. Wasim nods and leaves.
Shahbaz and others are having food. Kabir says to Shahbaz that Rawab Hashmi came to meet me. Shahbaz says such big personality came to our house and you didnt call me? Kabir says he wants me to fight halala case and win it. Shahbaz says thats such a big honor, he is such a powerful man, God has given you respect, you should be thankful to God. Kabir says yes. Shahbaz says Hashmi can make all your dreams come true. Kabir looks at Zara and says what he wants has a cost. Shahbaz says he wants you to stop people throwing filth at our nation, its a good deed, Shahbaz says to Kabir that if you follow Hashmi’s footsteps and fill the gap between Hashmi and Irfan then your life will be set. Zara says gap? whats their differences and animosity?
