Emibai Jinnah (1878–1893)[5] was the first cousin and first wife of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah from 1892 until her death.[6][7][8][9]

Marriage and death

Emibai Jinnah was born in 1878 in Paneli Moti, a village in Rajkot district of Gujarat, during the time of British India.[9]

When she was 14 years of age, Muhammad Ali Jinnah's mother Mithibai Jinnah was urging him to marry his cousin Emibai.[10] Jinnah complied with his mother's wishes and married Emibai at Paneli Village.[11][12] Shortly after the wedding, Muhammad Ali Jinnah left for England to engage in higher academic studies.[8][9], and a few months later Emibai died.

Affected by this tragedy, it was 25 years before Jinnah chose to marry again.[6]. Aged about 40, he took Rattanbai Petit (1900–1929) as his second wife on April 19, 1918. Rattanbai died on February 20, 1929.[9]

Unlike Rattanbai, a well known figure in her own right, little is known about Emibai.[13][14]
