"My mother-in-law was so kind, humble and a loving woman," she said, although living in not very good conditions. With tears in her eyes and standing near a portrait of her late mother-in-law, she said she treated her like her own daughter, something she will never forget.
"She was illiterate but very smart -- brilliant, in fact," Aisha said. "I found Pattan a very brave, great, committed, honest, sincere and trustworthy people. Such love and affection. After that first visit, we both often visited Pakistan to meet up with family."
She said they also set up the Aisha-Wazir Scholarship Foundation for the welfare of local children and deserving students, as most people in the area are very poor.
Badshah said that before the marriage, he had received the consent of his mother and also sent picture of Aisha to her, which was she approved with good wishes and prayers.
"After I got approval, I went to Aisha's parents' house at Mount Hope to propose to her," Badshah recalled.
Their six children have branched out: their first daughter is veterinary doctor; their second is a lawyer; the third is a student of public health in Washington D.C.; the fourth is working for a heath-care company; and, finally, the fifth daughter is an undergraduate student at Kentucky. Their only son, Omar Wazir, is a medical student.
Looking back on their 33-year relationship, Badsha said: "Naturally, there was sometimes a difference of opinion on some issues, but all of it was resolved with dialogue and by respecting each other."
After their marriage, they came to Charleston in 1982 and set up a small clinic, which has now turned into a complete cardiology center.
Aisha works as the center's administrator, auditor and human resources manager.
"Really, Badshah is my king, who won my heart," she said. "No one can dare to separate our souls. We are like the moon and sun."
She hopes that their example will be a trendsetter for others loving couples who won't be barred by differences of race, region or culture.
