He has posted an adorable video of his youngest daughter Arwa who just has learned how to walk on Instagram to share the joy of a father with his fans.
“Overjoyed to see my little princess, she has started walking. May Allah bless her always! An important day for me as I continue to receive love and recognition in the USA. Thank you all!”
