The 65-year-old revealed that he had so far married a total of 53 women, with his shortest marriage only one night. However, he insisted that none of them was a joke; they were all traditional weddings. Apparently, all he was trying to do was find a woman who would make him happy in his life, but his marriages kept crashing.

“Abu Abdullah’s story recently went viral in Saudi Arabia, sparking a heated debate among those who praised him for his adventurous lifestyle, and those who consider what he did wrong and refer to him as ‘the polygamist of the century’”.
It is unclear how many children he has got out of the numerous marriages.
