From the very early days of my life, my parents arranged a tutor at home, who used to teach me Quran as well as Arabic, Persian and English. Contrary to other girls of my age, who were fond of playing with dolls, I got an environment where piles of books were the sights to be seen and discussions of ideas and movements were the sounds to be heard.
Knowledge and enriched social values were something I inherited before I could inherit anything else from my parents. Right from very beginning of my formal schooling, I , being raised in a family having had great respect for freedom of expression and self-actualization, was fond of putting my opinion on issues of social and political concerns, ultimately helped me excel my potential as an orator.
I started my early education from North West Frontier Province (KPK) and I was lucky to get enrolled for education in three of the four provinces, which gave me an opportunity to understand other regional cultures and languages and look at the issues in their context. Students politics is the nursery of building future political leadership of any state. I was lucky to be an alumni and Secretary General of the Students Union of Lahore College University, a famous Asian institute for women education.
I got bachelor degree (graduation) from Punjab university, one of the oldest university of Indian subcontinent, while completed my post-graduation studies (Master) from Baluchistan University with colors. I started my doctorate from Brigham Young University, a private research university in Provo, Utah, United States and obtained PhD from Punjab University, focusing my research study on Family System in Islam & Contemporary Challenges. I completed National Security course from the renowned military university of Pakistan, National Defence University Islamabad.
I opened my eyes in a family, which was known as the family of scholars and preachers, a family which had been the custodian of bright and proud values. My grand-grandfather SheikhAkhun U Din was a Seljuq Turk, a proud link we are cherishing since ottoman empire. We heard some real stories from our elders about the ladies of our house, who donated their ornaments as a token of contribution to the movement for protection of Khilafah, initiated by the Muslims of subcontinent, now India and Pakistan.
I started my life career right after my graduation and married a medical doctor, who had been my husband as well as mentor. His support, guidance and high sense of responsibility towards his family and society helped me in the initial phase of my career to nourish my passion as a wife, mother, social work and political activist. Subsequently, down the road of life, Allah blessed us with two children, Muhammad Ibrahim Qazi and Reham Jamil Qazi, now both married and happy in their lives. Alhamdulillah.
I believe in FAMILY FIRST BRING HEART HOME, therefore , I spend most of my free time with my family, which is consisting of my daughter and son and three of my grandchildren, cooking variety of Asian and continental foods as a hobby.
In 2002 I was chosen to be a member of parliament in the national assembly, representing Jamaat e Islami Pakistan.

In 1995 Beijing Conference held under the auspicious of United Nations, which was the biggest ever summit of women in the world for gender issues. Unfortunately Muslim women did not have an effective voice to be heard at that time.

I was the founding member of that organization. Currently, I am honored to be the president of counsel of its trustees. This organization has been on the UN ECO-SOC status, which has helped me to participate in various conferences held under the auspicious of UN.
