The story also follows Zulaikha, who is in a dilemma after being proposed by her lover Adli. She worries that would mean having to follow Adli abroad after marriage. Zulaikha’s boss, Haji Ramli, on the other hand, has a crush on her and would do anything to gain the blessings from Sulikha’s family. This episode comes to a close when Zahred finds out that Balqis is having an affair with his father.
