Beintehaa 18th April written episode: Usman thanks Aaliya for everything and opines that she is a jewel as a daughter and a daughter-in-law. Barkat recalls how Mir has tortured her forever, stopped her education and forced her into doing jobs. She was bound to provide him money for his drinking and baiting. But no one ever protested, thinking that it was an everyday affair. She always waited for a good person, who will speak for her, recalls Barkat. When she thanks Zain, he tells her to forget all old odds and start life anew.
Aaliya finds that Zain is being late in returning home at night. She hesitates to call, as he will say it is a wife-like behaviour. When she hears his footsteps, she quickly lies down and pretends to sleep. Zain becomes surprised to see that she has fallen asleep without caring for him. He removes the blanket from her face, so that her breathing is not abstracted. Aaliya remembers her dad, who used to do the same thing and would hope that her husband would care for her in the same way.
In the next morning, the whole family becomes busy in the ceremony of Qurankhani. Aaliya explains to Zain that Qurankhani means reading the whole book of Quran. Zain is confused over his feelings for Aaliya, whether it is love or a mere friendship. He takes care of her when she coughs in the middle of the function. Barkat abruptly leaves the function. Suraiya sends Chand Biwi, to take her back.
Going to Barkat’s room, Chand Biwi becomes stunned to see her smoking!
