Malala Yousafzai Reveals She’s Married With Beautiful Wedding Photos

Malala Yousafzai is now married, the human rights and education activist announced by revealing beautiful photos from her big day.

The 24-year-old, who lives in Britain after surviving a Taliban attack at age 15 in her native Pakistan, shared the exciting news on social media on Tuesday as she shared photos of herself and her husband Asser.

“Today is a precious day in my life,” she wrote. “Asser and I tied the knot to become partners in life. We celebrated a small nikkah ceremony at home in Birmingham with our families. Please send us your prayers. We are excited to walk together for the upcoming journey.”

Yousafzai’s father, who was seen in one of the photos with her and her mother, also shared her joy, writing in a separate message: “It’s incomprehensible.”

“Toor Pekai and I are overwhelmed with joy and gratitude,” He wrote from his wife, adding “Alhamdulillah” which means “Praise be to God” in Arabic.

Yousafzai said in an interview with British Vogue in June that she wasn’t sure if she would ever get married.

“I still don’t understand why people have to get married. If you want to have a person in your life, why do you have to sign marriage papers, why can’t it just be a partnership?” she said, though she later acknowledged that people change and grow.

The union is just the latest major milestone for Yousafzai, who earned a degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Oxford University.

She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for her fight for the rights of all children to education. And in 2013, she published her autobiography, “I Am Malala”, which became an international bestseller.

Yousafzai survived a 2012 Taliban assassination attempt after speaking out publicly against the militant group’s repression of women and girls. Taliban militants shot the then-teenager twice while she was on a school bus, but remarkably she survived and continued her activism.
