Nooryana Najwa Najib has urged Malaysians to spare a thought for former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak after his arrest earlier today.

"Let’s just think of him this one time when he needs us the most. You can paint a man black, but Allah knows.

"If it can happen to our leaders, it can happen to anyone of us... nevertheless we believe Allah is not sleeping," she said in an Instagram posting.

Nooryana said her father had always thought of the people.

"For 42 years, he has thought of the rakyat when he wakes up from sleep until he goes to bed," she said, adding that no one is as kind, loving and gentle as her father. 

"He has more emotional and mental strength than all of us put together.

"Even in the face of adversity today, he smiled, laughed and gave us all a hug... worried more for the family than himself," she added.

Nooryana ended her Instagram message with the hashtags #freenajib #respectcivilliberties #thestruggleisreal #pray4dsn.

Najib had been arrested by the MACC in relation to transactions involving SRC International, a former subsidiary of 1MDB.

He will be charged tomorrow.
