Early in Muneeba's life, she meets a man named Yusuf, and the pair fall in love, much to the disapproval of Muneeba's mother. She couldn't stand to break her mother's heart, so she refused Yusuf's proposal, but he decides to leave her a poem before he departs, which she shows to her mother, prompting a change of heart, and resulting in the young couple getting married a week later. The pair eventually move from Pakistan, and settle in New Jersey, where they have two children.
Unbeknownst to Muneeba, her daughter is an inhuman, with the secret identity of Ms. Marvel. Muneeba enters Kamala's room to wake her up, while vacuuming, unaware she came home late last night, fighting crime. She urges Kamala to focus on her education and career, rather than waste her time on trivial interests.
Sometime later, Muneeba notices Kamala upset and recalls the story of how she and her husband married, advising Kamala to have faith in what she believes, and share her vision with others, while keeping in mind the struggles of others.
Marvel Rising: Playing with Fire
Muneeba returns in Playing with Fire. She catches Kamala being dropped off home on a motorcycle, belonging to America Chavez. She shouts at her daughter, and questions who her friend is. Kamala introduces the two, and Muneeba insists America over for dinner, before she has a chance to leave. She tells the girls to come inside, and has her daughter set the table. Later on, America attends another dinner. Muneeba thanks her for picking up a chapati and offers to teach her how to make dal to go with it. She suggests Kamala could join in with the pair, if she manages to keep herself away from playing World of Warcraft. Muneeba asks how the pair met, and America begins telling her they're on a team, until Kamala quickly interrupts, and finishes her sentence, by stating they bowl together. Muneeba asks if there are any boys on the team, and Kamala replies that there are, but none to notice. America suggests that she notices one of them, and Muneeba questions who he is, but Kamala insists there's no one she's interested in. Following the dinner, Muneeba begins cooking in the kitchen, when Kamala surprises her. She reveals that she's making her favorite dinner, and knows that she's busy, but she likes knowing who her daughter is, and the friends she has, whenever she would like to introduce them to her. Kamala promises her that she will be home for dinner more often
