When she was only 2 years old her father died and so her mother and uncle in exchange for money, betroth her to Ali who was 22 years old at that time and is a member of Taliban. When she gets 10 years old Ali comes to marry her. Her mother and uncle asks for money again and Ali pays the money. He performs the Nikah and takes her with him to his house. At this point, Ali rapes her all the time due to which she gets continuous bleeding problem. On the other hand, because she is too young to understand the way of life, she cannot do the house works properly and so Ali use to beat her all the time. she spends 4 years in a house like a prisoner and is not allowed to leave the house. She was given food only once a day.  After 4 years in the morning again her husband beats her for not preparing warm water for him. That night at 9 Pm she jumps from the window and submits herself to the police who takes her to the directorate of women affairs.

 In the morning, she was taken to Kandahar province where no one was ready to take her custody so she was transferred to Kabul.  On 28/9/2016 the ministry of women affairs introduced her to HAWCA Women Protection Center.
