Abid Ali’s sister Rabia shared a very heart-felt voice message about the hoax and how it has caused her family and his family immense pain.
While sharing the news with her fans and followers, the Coke Studio crooner Rahma Ali wrote:
Papa has been extremely unwell for the past two months.
Got treatments done, tried almost every available medication, tasbeehs, and Surah e, Rehman, too but now all the doctors have given us their final verdict. Basically they’ve told us there is nothing they can do to save him.
She continued by saying:
Par Allah se barri koi taaqat nahi hai. (There’s no bigger power than the Almighty). Humare sath agar ap logon ki duaa bhi mil jaayen tou shayad Allah sun he lain kisi ki (If you pray with us for him then maybe Allah may listen to someone).
Soon after, the famous actress Iman Ali also took to her Instagram account and wrote:
Please pray for papa’s health.
