This candid, family photograph is a true representation of Noor Jehan’s top priority: her family. Madam’s affection and need to protect her family, especially her daughters, is clearly evident through their smiles and laughter.

Noor Jehan always put her family life on a pedestal. In this photograph, Madam is elated as she claps and cheers on her daughter who is cutting her birthday cake.

The man in this picture, assisting with the cutting of the cake, is her second husband: Ejaz Durrani.

From the extreme right the order of the girls is: Hina Durrani, Nazia Durrani and Zil-e Huma, (Her daughter holding Noor Jehan’s grandson Muhammad Ali Butt). Shazia Sardar is seen at the back.
