Mirza recently retired from the game on 7th January 2023 and is now one of the most notable athletes in the country. However, it has been a difficult period for the 37-year-old former world number 1 since she has been dealing with some personal problems that are all over social media. the most notable one is her divorce from her ex-husband and Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik. This might be the reason why the legendary player has chosen to on a religious pilgrimage.

She has also gone on to post a story on Instagram regarding a religious journey to Mecca stating, "As I prepare for this transformative experience, I humbly ask for your forgiveness for any wrongdoings and shortcomings.”  Through this story, it is clear that the famous athlete is planning to go on a self-discovery journey to fight her problems in her professional and personal life which is going through a lot of turmoil right now.
