According to Good Morning America, the video was shared by Sana Ansari's younger sister Hibah. Ansari said she was "euphoric" when she received the news of her sister passing the bar exam on April 21. It was the same day as Eid, and the happy news was a long time coming as it was her second attempt at the New York state bar examination. "We were all waiting for my dad to come back because he's been waiting for these results for so long as well. So we knew his reaction would be the best," Ansari said.
