Family of the musician also added that Ali Noor requires a liver donor within 18 to 45 years of age.
Later, the musician’s brother, Ali Hamza, took to Facebook and asked his fans not to panic, adding, his brother will be back on his feet very soon.
“He has suffered an intense bout of Hepatitis A. There is a possibility of liver damage, but he’s being monitored by the best in the business,” Hamza said.
“As for needing a liver donor, the doctors are saying that we do need to have people on standby, but they can only be family members – our local law does not allow outside of family donors,” adding, “But more than anything, most probably, Inshallah Inshallah we won’t have to go that route. We are already seeing improvement in Ali Noor’s condition.”
He continued to say, “What we need are prayers from everyone that Ali Noor recovers in full form! Yes to all family members and extended family members we are communicating that if they are a match (O +/-, B +/-) they should connect with us. But that’s as far as we can go.”
He further thanked all their fans for the love and support.
“It’s very important at this stage that we sit at our respective abodes and just pray for Ali Noor’s recovery.”
“THERE IS NO NEED FOR A BLOOD DONOR, AND THE ONLY LIVER DONOR IF NEED BE WOULD BE A FAMILY MEMBER! ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! YOUR PRAYERS ARE ALL WE NEED!! LOTS OF LOVE AND RESPECT FROM OUR FAMILY!”
