Longevity claimant

Suliman Al-Mul (1893/1898? – 18 January 2021) was a Lebanese longevity claimant.


Very little is known about him other than his claim to longevity is "magic tea" with which he puts carob, thyme, quinoa, and anise in it. He lived in Heker Hanin in north Lebanon's Akkar district.

The father of 12 children, the oldest being 75 years old and the youngest almost 5, his descend­ents count more than 300 covering five generations — a clear source of pride for al-Mal.

Hard work, plenty of sleep and rest and a varied diet are the se­crets to a long and healthy life, ac­cording to the well-built centenar­ian who, until three years ago was still fathering children, when his second wife Samira, whom he mar­ried while she was in her 30s and he was 110 years old, had a miscarriage with their sixth child. He had seven children, the youngest now 59, with his first wife, also named Samira, who died after they lived together for 70 years.[1]

He was reported to be alive on 3 June 2018 when an article of him claimed that he was born in 1893 which made him 125 years old then.[2][3] Suliman Al-Mul died on 18 January 2021 at the claimed age of 123 (which implied that he was born in 1898).[4]

Age issues

His birth year cannot be validated as another article surfacing him, albeit his name spelled "Sleiman Al-Mal", claimed he was born in 1898, which probably made him 120 years old. When he died, he was cited as 123, which implied that he was born in 1898.
