Probably!! The Couple with largest number of children

Mohammed Ishaq and Bismillah from Mewat, Harayana, India who got married 1976AD were blessed with their 23rd child last week only. The little one, born last week and named Shabira, is the darling of her parents and her 22 siblings in a nondescript village, Akera, in the backward Mewat region of Haryana.

Mohd Ishaq doesn't remember the names of his 23 kids or even recognize all of them. Yet, he is all set to welcome his 24th child next year."I find it very difficult to remember their names as they all look the same," he said.

Speaking to MiD DAY, a happy and delighted father, Mohammad Ishaq said, "Yeh toh sab Allah ki den hai, agar hamara chaubiswa baccha agle sal hua toh woh bhi hum Allah ki den samjhenge.” (All this is Allah's gift. If we get a 24th child next year, we will welcome it too)"

Bismillah the mother of 23 children hopes that her children will take care of her. "I feed my children chicken, mutton and chivda, with my daughters helping me in the cooking," she says.
