Sania Mirza Prepares for Sacred Hajj Journey, Seeks Forgiveness

Indian tennis icon Sania Mirza is preparing for a sacred journey to Hajj, about five months after announcing her split with cricketer husband Shoaib Malik. Sania, who has retired from professional tennis, recently worked as an analyst for the prestigious French Open 2024. On Sunday, she shared on social media that she is getting ready for a ‘transformative experience,’ hoping to return as a better person.

In her social media post on Sunday, Sania wrote: “As I prepare for this transformative experience, I humbly ask for your forgiveness for any wrongdoings and shortcomings.”

Sania also expressed her hope that Allah accepts her prayers and guides her on this blessed path. She added: “I am deeply fortunate and feel immensely grateful. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I embark on this journey of a lifetime. I hope to come back as a better human being with a humble heart and stronger Imaan.”

It’s worth mentioning that besides Sania Mirza, her sister Anum Mirza and brother-in-law Muhammad Asaduddin have also announced their plans to embark on the sacred journey of Hajj.

Recently, Sania appeared on a popular comedy show where she talked to comedian Kapil Sharma about her successful career, particularly her partnership with Martina Hingis in 2015-16.

During the conversation, Sania said: “I think all of the women sitting on this couch can understand this…when you hit a streak (winning back-to-back), athletes like to call it being ‘In the zone’… Honestly, I think that’s the best way I can describe what Martina and I had for those six months.”

“We used to feel, we wouldn’t lose when we stepped into the court. And this feeling is very rare for athletes to experience. I was so humbled and privileged that I was able to experience that,” Sania said.

She added: “After starting in August 2015, we went on to lose our first match only after six months in 2016 — March. So, for almost six to seven months, we forgot the feeling of losing.”

Sania shared the stage with fellow athletes Mary Kom and Saina Nehwal on the comedy show.
