Mushtaq opened up about how he accepted Shadab as his son-in-law after observing two important habits of his. The first habit was when Shadab's mother informed him that he had expressed his wish for his parents to find a suitable partner for him. The second habit was Shadab's dedication to prayer, as he prayed five times a day.  that he did not notice anything wrong with him during the time they spent together and appreciated the fact that Shadab would invite everyone to pray by knocking on their doors.
