The businessman, who runs a car repair firm, threw a lit petrol-filled bottle through a window at each house each house, causing the occupants to flee in terror.
A 16-year-old boy, who is thought to have been involved in the assault that featured in the footage, lived in one of the properties and was left seriously injured.
He was badly burned during the attack shortly before midnight on Tuesday, March 28.
Other young children were also present in the houses at the time.
The houses were petrol bombed within 10 minutes of each other.
The first home on Alexander Road was targeted st around 11.30pm and the second in Adrian Road shortly afterwards.
Iqbal's young brother was assaulted at a McDonald's restaurant before the clip was posted online.
The 34-year-old denied being involved in the petrol-bombings but he was found guilty of two attempted murder charges following his trial at the High Court in Edinburgh.
He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced next month.
Ryan Easton, 26, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, had also faced the same charges but jurors returned not proven verdicts.
