Greetings @WaleedAbbas 

According to the following documentation https://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/manage-data/tables/calculating-area-length-and-other-geo.... you need a projected coordinate system to calculate area, perimeter etc. 

Hope this helps.

Not quite correct.  For that particular tool yes, but not in general.
