Emibai was born in 1878 in Karachi. When she became 14 years old, Muhammad Ali Jinnah's mother Mithibai Jinnah was urging him to marry his cousin Emibai Jinnah.[10] Jinnah fulfilled his mother urge and married Emibai at the age of 16 at Paneli Village.[11][12] She died few months later after Muhammad Ali Jinnah left to England for higher studies.[8][9] Struck by the tragedy, he did not marry for a long time.[6] After 25 years (aged 40 – 41), he married Maryam Jinnah (1900 – 1929) as his second wife on April 19, 1918 until her death on February 20, 1929. Unlike Jinnah's second wife Maryam, little is known about her.[13][14] She was the sister-in-law of Fatima Jinnah and stepmother of Dina Jinnah.[5]
