Dena ussko dil, jo tairna na jaante huway bhi tumhaari aankhon ke jazeeron mai bekhauf kood paray. Thaamna usska haath, Jo tumhari tamaam haqeeqat jaannay ke bawajood tumhein na chunay, balke tumhari haqeeqat ki wajah se tumhein chunay. Chalna usske saath, Jo duniya ke shor mai bhi tumhaare seenay ki khamoshi sun lay, aur saans thaam muskuraaye. Jhukaana usske liye palkein, Jissay tumhari nigaah ke liye tarasna na parta hou, phir bhi tumhari deed ki ehemiyat jaane. Kholna usske liye darwaazay, Jiske qareeb mehsoos kernay ke liye, tumhein ussay ch’hoonay ki zaroorat na paray. Two years and counting.
According to Hira, she caught her husband Waleed cheating on her with another woman, Akasha Khan. She had first encountered Waleed ‘sexting’ (sending inappropriate messages) to the woman. Despite that, Hira decided to give Waleed a chance.

This is my beautiful husband. Of course, you can’t see how beautiful he is because I make sure he keeps his beauty (read: identity) hidden as I am the only true haqdaar of it. Everything he is, all his achievements, dreams, all of his fkn life, he owes it to me. Any namehram’s nazar is haraam on him, so I prefer he stay at home as the world is a bad place. However, it is ok when he goes out with me. I took him to dinner at @madroostapk last night. We only go there because they use steroid free chicken and we are very health conscious, especially after knowing how growth hormone injected chicken can affect fertility. I don’t want his fertility to be affected because his major purpose of existing is to give me children and make me a mother. So no matter what, I only bring him to eat out here. I Iove how he modestly hides himself while going out, as he is khuli tijori and I wouldn’t want him to get molested. Even then if he gets molested, we will accept that as qismah and hope that the abuser will be punished in akhirah. I on the other hand can roam around and loiter on my own, in my chadda banyaan, in my tank top in my spaghetti strap top or even shirtless, because I am a woman. I am not scared of other women. They will not assault me. And even if they do, I will not talk about it because it will prove me weak and defenceless in front of the whole wide world. A woman is not supposed to be weak, you know, we were created to be strong and macho. Also, I let him go out to work and drive cuz I am a strong believer in equality. However, looking at na-mehrams and interacting with them in any way is strictly prohibited. It is my duty to ensure these practices as a pious husband is my key to jannah, how will I get to sleep with 70 virgins in the afterlife warna? Also photography and all is also haraam but we had to do this since in attempt to educate you all and save you from qabar ke saanp and jahannum ki aag. Where’s my medal? . . . #genderroles #smashingpatriarchy #dawn #nomeansno #consent #endrapeculture #metoo
However, she caught him again exchanging messages with another woman when she forgave him the first time.
Hira said that she had suffered from child abuse, trauma and rape. She also claimed that her father had left his mother and Waleed knew all about it.
OK guys, story time: Married Woman on Tinder.
So a few days ago, i decided to join Tinder. For those who don’t know, Tinder is a dating/hooking up app, and married people shouldn’t be on it unless they have an open marriage.
I am a married woman since April 2018.

In the end, Hira said that the decision to stay with her husband or to leave him was hers alone and she was not looking for unsolicited advice. She said that the reason for coming out with the truth was that people who follow them should know that they were not just another ‘woke bubbly couple’ but also that they went through intense struggle and ups and downs in their marriage.
The point of this thread is not that he has been shit to me and I hope life fucks him up and boy bye. I repeat, the decisions are mine to make. The point is that I will not pretend that we are a happy bubbly woke couple when the reality has been far from that. pic.twitter.com/H656xALTtT

Twitterati were quick to show their love and support for Hira after the thread went viral.
Can't find the words to express the pain I felt reading this. This is so heartbreaking. Just like Ibtisam Zahid had said, "I’m sorry my specie is so disgusting." I pray you a good health. I pray you keep having the strength to fight through all this. I'm really sorry it happened

Hira Mannan, I strongly suggest you to leave your husband. My married narcissistic ex did the same thing – contacted me after ages to sext & he has narcissistic personality disorder. It is highly likely you're a victim of narcissistic abuse.

You're so, so incredibly powerful. Just imagining what you must have gone through is making my heart clench. For you to confront it, survive it, and working to recover from it, while being so incredibly fair and dignified is power beyond words. So much love your way 💙

plus he is just downplaying the seriousness of what he has done. Men believe its their privilege to make a gf and cheat behind their spouse's back. They dont find that troubling or offensive. I mean anyone male can do it but its immoral.. they should refrain from such attitude.
