“Hello, my name is Mohammed Ali Abdullah, or as they call me, ‘Mohammed the blind’. I’m so happy that my life has become tinted in rose, although I don’t know what that looks like, but I hear roses are beautiful. I have finally found my life partner,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

“I have few friends and wish you can all be my friends and join me in my celebrations, as I want to prove to the world that I also have the right to be happy like other normal person. I will not see you at the wedding, but I will feel your presence,” Abdullah said.

This post quickly went viral, encouraging the city of Aden to join in on the festivities. The hashtag ‘We All Are Your Friends’ began trending

Come wedding day, hundreds of locals took to the streets to meet and celebrate the newlyweds.
