Quaid-e-Azam & his family Jinnah’s Family Jinnah was eldest among seven siblings born to Mithibai and Jinnahbhai Poonja. He had six siblings ,brothers Ahmad Ali, Bunde Ali, and Rahmat Ali, and sisters Maryam, Fatima and Shireen. Mohammad Ali Jinnah married, at his mother’s urging, a distant cousin (Emibai from Paneli village) when he was 16 and Emibai was only 14. The marriage was forced on his by his mother as she was afraid that if he went to England, he might end-up marrying an English girl. They hardly lived together as Jinnah sailed from India soon after his marriage and Emibai died within few weeks after that. Rattanbai Petit / Ruttie (”The Flower of Bombay”) was the second wife of Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Rattanbai converted to Islam and adopted the name Mariam.
