Sheikh Awad left behind 24 sons and daughters from various wives

Saudi Arabia’s oldest man died at the age of 120 years, leaving behind 447 children, grand children and great grand children, including his 98-year-old eldest son.

Sheikh Awad bin Abdul Aziz bin Saifi Al Qarni died of old age at his house in the central village of Al Badadha although he was in a good health just before his demise.

The chief of his tribe for most of his life, Sheikh Awad left behind 24 sons and daughters from various wives, including his eldest son, 98, youngest 22-year-old son and his eldest grandson aged around 65 years.

“Sheikh Awad was born in 1893…he witnessed three centuries and all the kings of Saudi Arabia…he was known by his tribe and many other people as nice, wise and frank man and for this reason, he was loved by all,” Sabq newspaper said.

If he truly was 120, wouldn’t that make him the oldest person in the world?

I would hate to be an ancient Muslim on Judgment Day. Can you imagine trying to explain living two lifetimes without repenting and trusting Christ?

22 year old son and he is 120.... Wow.... getting it on and not shooting blanks at age 98.

Of course his son looks just like his neighbor!

Why does this remind me of liberals claiming Zippy was born in Hawaii?

Sure, since the 154-year-old Saudi died last month ...

Japan recently celebrated the birthday of a Japanese who is believed to be the oldest man alive. Even the PM and Guinness were at the ceremony which I suppose makes it official.

If it was Guinness, the beer, I'd have to believe it.
