Zubaida Tariq was born on 4 April 1945 in Hyderabad Deccan, British India. Her family migrated to Pakistan in 1947. They settled in Karachi, PIB Colony, where she lived with her five older sisters and 4 brothers. In 1953, her father died. After the death of father, three of her sisters took responsibility for running the house. In 1966, Zubaida wed a first cousin, Tariq Maqsood, whom she first met in 1954. They had two children.
Originally from Hyderabad, British India, and settled in Karachi, Zubaida was born into a prominent Urdu-speaking family known for producing littérateurs, intellectuals and artists. Her maternal grand-uncle was Bahadur Yar Jung, a Muslim nationalist of the Indian subcontinent.
She had ten other siblings, the most notable of whom include sisters Fatima Surayya Bajia (an Urdu novelist and playwright) and Zehra Nigah (an Urdu poet) and a brother Anwar Maqsood (a poet, humorist, writer and entertainer). A nephew Bilal Maqsood (Anwar's son) is a vocalist and guitarist for the pop rock band "Strings".
