“For 18 years, I’ve been waiting for my own phone. I’m holding my own phone now, this is my phone. I’m grown up now, can’t believe this is mine,” Nasuha said tearfully.

Some captions in the video show that this is how her parents treat all their children as her siblings were also given a mobile phone only after they had completed their SPM.

Speaking to WeirdKaya, Prof. MAS shared his thoughts on not giving his children a mobile phone at a young age.

Nasuha is the 4th child out of 5 siblings. All my children do not have their own handphones until the end of SPM. After the end of SPM, I will buy according to the child’s suitability.”

He is thankful that all his children listened to him and his wife willingly as he believes that they could share cell phones with their parents when they were young.

All communication, WhatsApp groups and children’s school information in the parents’ mobile phone.”

However, understanding that the need for mobile phones during the COVID-19 pandemic is quite urgent, Prof. MAS bought a special mobile phone for the family.

Nasuha, Nurin, Aqilla and Yaya who were still in school at the time shared the same mobile phone for information and school discussion groups. No personal mobile phone until the end of SPM. Only after the end of SPM, I present the children with mobile phones. I love all my children.

The video has garnered over 1.6 million views, 166K likes, and 3.5K comments as of writing.
