The two daughters were named Najma Khalisha Alpharabi and Najma Khalila Alpharabi while the sons were named Muhammad Khalif Alpharabi and Muhammad Khairna Alpharabi.

"Following a reference from family members I finally decided to give birth at Siloam Hospital and got healthy and fine children," she said.

The mother had to be treated after her pregnancy was 24 weeks old because at the time she had felt the pain.
Entering 32 weeks old or eight months old or on May 13 the babies were born, helped by four doctors.
"The babies were born three minutes apart from each other through a premature process with the male babies weighing 1.4 kilograms and female babies 1.6 kilograms," he said.
A quadruplet birth happens one out of 750,000 patients, the doctor says.
He said "the babies can now be taken home as their health conditions are good."
