UAE’s superdad is all set to tie the knot again, with the aim of hitting a century before 2015.
Father of 88 children, 64-year-old Daad Murad Abdul Rahman will marry 18-year-old Aisha in Jaipur (Indian state of Rajastan) after Eid.
Speaking to Emirates24|7, Rahman said: “The wedding was arranged by his Indian doctor. Meher [money bridegroom pays the bride’s father] has been fixed at Dh20,000 and the nikkah [wedding] will be held in Jaipur.”
Rahman, who lives in Ajman and Manama, has 50 boys and 38 girls. The eldest son Tariq is 39 years of age and the youngest is a few months old. “I will stop marrying when I have 100 children. I hope to achieve that with this marriage.”
The sexagenarian could not conceal his excitement when asked about his new bride. “I’m thrilled about my wedding. She is a pretty girl. I have seen her photograph. I speak to her over the phone. I have applied for visa to visit India for the marriage. Most probably, I will leave for India after Eid.”
