When she was 14 years of age, Muhammad Ali Jinnah's mother Mithibai Jinnah was urging him to marry his cousin Emibai. Jinnah complied with his mother's wishes and married Emibai at Paneli Village. Shortly after the wedding, Muhammad Ali Jinnah left for England to engage in higher academic studies., and a few months later Emibai died.
Affected by this tragedy, it was 25 years before Jinnah chose to marry again.. Aged about 40, he took Rattanbai Petit(1900–1929) as his second wife on April 19, 1918. Rattanbai died on February 20, 1929.
Unlike Rattanbai, a well known figure in her own right, little is known about Emibai.
