Meanwhile, in the 2nd and 3rd videos, Riyad can be seen talking to guests at the wedding and holding a conversation with the groom in Arabic, with Miri acting as translator.



According to Gulf News, Miri has been an integral part of Riyad’s family for over 30 years and acted as a caregiver to Riyad’s mother who suffers from quadriplegia.

In his speech in Arabic during the wedding ceremony, Riyad asserted,

“My relationship with Miri transcends the ordinary. It’s about acknowledging her immense contribution to my life, from raising me to caring for my mother.”

“We owe her a debt of gratitude. Bringing her happiness is the least we can do, considering the joy she has brought into our lives.”

Not only that, he also gifted the newlyweds with SAR10,000 in cash, which is approximately RM12,500.

Beyond that, Riyad asserted that given that Miri has expressed her desire to continue working for the family, he would ensure that a home will be prepared for her, honouring her wishes and steadfast commitment to the family.
