Know Who Is Ayesha Siddiqui First Wife Of Shoaib Malik Who He Divorced Before Marriage With Sania Mirza

Malik divorced his wife Ayesha Siddiqui on 7 April 2010 and on 12 April 2010, Shoaib Malik married Indian Tennis player Sania Mirza in a traditional Hyderabadi Muslim wedding ceremony at the Taj Krishna Hotel in Hyderabad, India followed by Pakistani wedding customs.

Malik is currently in Pakistan while Sania is in Dubai, both of them serving as experts for A Sports for the T20 World Cup 2022. Sania most recently shared a photo on Instagram that fuelled divorce rumours. Initially, they appeared to be rumours, but a close friend of the couple has since confirmed that the two would soon get divorced, according to a report by Zee News Hindi.

Shoaib Malik Was Attacked By The Siddiqui Family Amid Divorce Rumours With Sania Mirza

Back in 2017, Ayesha Siddiqui and her family today threatened to sue the Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and made it plain that the shady chapter will only be closed if she attains a formal divorce, putting pressure on Shoaib Malik before his April 15 wedding to Sania Mirza. Ayesha, who asserts to have wed Shoaib in 2002, went all out today by sending copies of her “nikahnama” to Pakistani and Indian channels, where she spilled her heart out on the split.


Numerous Pakistani media channels broadcast the marriage certificate, which appeared to bear Shoaib’s signature in the column for the groom and Maha Siddiqui’s name in the column for the bride.

“I have released this marriage certificate because Shoaib and his family have constantly been denying this marriage,” Ayesha said.

Tennis player Sania, and Shoaib, exchanged wedding vows on April 15 in Hyderabad while organised reception in Lahore.

“The only thing I want now is an official divorce from him, but it has to be in the open and not behind closed doors because he can always then deny it later as he has the marriage. I want to end my ordeal, I want to move on and put a stop to people asking me questions constantly about my  marriage to him. Even an official ‘talaq, talaq talaq’ will do,” she said.

If Shoaib continued to live with Sania without divorcing Ayesha, her father M. A. Siddiqui threatened to bring legal action against him. The Pakistani cricketer and his family have consistently denied any wedlock with Ayesha, despite the Siddiqui family’s claims that Shoaib is married to their daughter and Sania would be his second wife if they through with the marriage. Siddiqui threatened to sue Malik and to ask ulema for a fatwa against him.

According to Ayesha, she shared the Nikahnama since it provided evidence that the marriage actually took place.


“They are signatures of witnesses on the certificate and Shoaib sent me a copy for signature and a ‘Haq Mahar’ amount of Pakistani 500 rupees,” she said.

She said that Shoaib had always been upset with her weight issues and that she had even travelled to Delhi to have surgery there for his sake.

However, the marriage certificate, according to Shoaib’s brother-in-law Imran Zafar Malik, was rejected as a fabricationnd had no significance because there had never been a Nikah ceremony.
Imran added that the Siddiqui family had given them no other option but to pursue legal action in India against them.

Ayesha denied allegations that she is acting in this way to attract attention and money.

“My name is Maha Siddiqui, Ayesha is the name given to me by my grandmother. Maha is my name in my passport. So ironically, when he says the wrong name was given during the nikah, well both names belong to the same person — me,” she said.

Back in 2017, excerpts from an interview Shoaib gave in 2004 in which he acknowledged being married to Ayesha were shown on a Pakistani television station. When the interviewer questioned Malik about if girls had begun to approach him because he was a young and successful cricket player, Malik responded, “Yes.”
