Actress And Host Farah Saadia First Time Difficulties She Face As Child And In Her Marital Life
Although Farah could have left showbiz to save her marriage, but it seemed that her husband didn’t have a proper job and Farah had to host her morning show to support herself and her two sons. With tears in her eyes, Farah even told that sometimes she didn’t have enough money to fulfill the household expense.
Farah and Iqbal shocked everyone by ending their 14-year-old relationship with divorce. At the time of divorce, both of them kept this matter private and didn’t disclose the reasons.
In October 2013, Farah was invited by Shaista Lodhi on her morning show “Utho Jago Pakistan”. In that show, Farah spilled the beans about her divorce. She got emotional while telling the hardships she faced. When Shaista asked Farah the reason behind her divorce with Iqbal Hussain, Farah said: “It was due to bad luck”.

Later on, as the show progressed, Farah became more open on the matter. She told that her life was like a “bride laid down in dark grave” and termed herself as “Zinda Dargor”.
Farah told that she asked Iqbal many times to become serious, but he never took Farah’s words seriously.
“In 2005, when I joined ATV morning show, I asked Iqbal to change himself and become serious. I begged him, requested him, and did every possible thing, but of no use,” said Farah.
From Farah’s discussion, it seemed that her ex-husband Iqbal Hussain, didn’t have a proper job and she had no choice but to go back to work to support herself and her two kids.
“I was not given money to fulfill my family and household expenses,” said Farah.
Revealing further details about her divorce, Farah told that she filed Nan Nafqa case against Iqbal. *Maintenance under Muslim law is known as “Nafqah” which means what a man spends on his family. “Nafqah” basically includes food, clothing, and lodging. “Nafqah” (living expenses) becomes wajib on the husband after Nikah.
“As he was not fulfilling the household expenses, I filed Nan Nafqah case against him. In response, he sent me divorce papers,” said Farah.
When Shaista asked Farah if morning show was the main reason behind her divorce, Farah (with tears in eyes) replied:
“No Shaista, morning show was not the main reason behind our divorce. Due to the morning show, I didn’t commit suicide. Due to the morning show, my two sons go to school. Due to the morning show, I am able to live.
I have to raise my two sons and for that, I need to earn money in a dignified way. A morning show is among such platforms where you can earn in a respectful way.”
After the divorce, both sons Abdullah and Abdul Rehman remained in the custody of Farah.
Farah said that i belong to Jutt family aor yeh jo jutt ho te hai na bare sakht ho te hai khas torper ap ne traditions ke hawale se aor television per aana unke buhet mushkil hai. Television per aana buhet ittefaqan tha, mere abba kuch time ke lia hum se door ho gae , hamara talluq zameen dar gharane se tha aor mere abba ne apna hissa nahi liya jo hissa unka ban ta tha aor isi waja se family me dooriya paida hui.
Us time meri mother buhet beemar ho gi thi , mai us waqt sirf 17 sal ki thi , mene graduation ke papers dia the , aor 3 mah to mujhe hosh hee nahi tha aor meri mother ka wazan buhet kum ho gaya aor roz hospital le ker hum bhag te the.
Seb se bari aulad mai thi aor jis family me mera brought up hua tha , is waqia ke 1 sal baad jab mujhe ke lia audition dene jana tha to mene poocha tv center kaha hai to aor mujhe in cheezo ka pata hee nahi tha .
Mai apni mother ko hospital le ker gi , brig zafar sahab ne bulaya to kaha ke apke sath bara kon hai to mene kaha ke sebse bari mai hee hue , aor doctor ne mujhe kaha apko urgently blood lana hoga apki mother ko humne operate kerna hai aor us time waqai mere pairo ke neeche se zameen khishak gai.
Mene mere mamu, uncle cousins , chacha seb se appeal ki ke hume blood chaye aor seb ne refuse ker dia . be basi ka alam yeh tha ke mai ne doctor se kaha mera khoon le lo but unhone bola ke ap eidhi se rabta karo , jb mai hospital se nikli to meri khala ki beti ke husband the jinhone blood dia.
us din jab mai akeli CMH me bethi thi to mene socha tha ke ab mai logo ki khaatir nahi zinda rahu gi.
meri mother government servent thi unhone mujhe apna zewar utar ker dia ke yeh jewler ko de do mai zinda bach gi to lelu gi.
jab meri maa ne recover kia tha to mene maa ke paow pakar lia the aor bola ke mere pas sirf graduation ki degree hai.
Hum 4 behen bhai hai mujhe hamare khandani system se buhet shikway hai , hamara haq banta tha ke hume zameeno me se share milta lakin dadyal ne kabhi realize hee nahi kia .
punjab ke culture me buhet bari musibat hai ke jo aurat ko ghar me byah ker la te hai na aor bhens ya gae ko la te hai un dono ke status me ziada ferq nahi hota . usne bhi bache dene ho te hai aor usko bech ker paise kama ne hote isi terha aurat ka bhi role hai ke aurat a ker bache paida kare gi.
mujhe yad hai hum dadyal gae aor phopu se kaha ke paratha bana de to meri phupo ne mana kerdia sath hee meri cousin jab ati hai to phupo usko makhan ka paratha bana ker de ti hai to mene meri maa se kaha mene yaha nahi reh na itni der me mere abba a gae aor waha seb ke samne mere father ne mujhe chanta lagaya aor us time mai chup ker gi.
aj mai keh ti hu aurat hee aurat ki zindagi berbad ker ti hai mai ne yeh cheez dekhi hai , jo behen ho ti hai na bhai ki beewi ki life berbad ker ti hai mene dekha hai .
hum islami mashre me reh te hue non islamic culture me reh te hai aor sabka zor is bat per hai ke farah tv per na ae .
