Nana tells Mariam that she doesn’t matter to Jalil. She will never be wanted in his house because she is a harami, an embarrassment to his honor and pride.
Example #4: pg. 94
Jalil allows Mariam to be married off to Rasheed at the request of his three wives. His honor will be preserved as long as the reminder of his affair is sent far away.
Example #5: pg. 214
Rasheed gives Mariam a burqa, after telling her that he thought that women who were allowed to walk around uncovered were shameful. He thought that the men who allowed them to do it were spoiling their own honor and pride. He says that where he comes from, a woman’s face is her husband’s business only.
Example #6: pg. 219
Mariam cannot carry a baby, and that is the ultimate dishonor a woman can do to her husband.
Rasheed insists that he marry Laila, to legitimize the fact that she is an unmarried girl staying with him. It looks dishonorable. Mariam tries to argue, because she sees allowing the girl into their marriage as a sign of disrespect to her.
Laila agrees to marry Rasheed because it was dishonorable and dangerous to be an unmarried pregnant woman. She will pretend the baby is Rasheed’s to protect his honor and pride.
