qra Aziz added that she was asked by people whether the two of you are together or not. When will you get married Do you both meet? How can you meet in an Islamic country? So instead of getting bogged down in these questions, I decided to marry Yasir Hussain so that everyone could live happily together with the prayers of the family.
