housewife. His brother Hani was very bright and, after finishing university, went on to

become a civil engineer.


Early career

woodwork and became a carpenter. He loved Jordanian folk music and, in his spare time,


     يصنع       آلات موسيقية                     أدوات حرفية أنيقة          
made musical instruments, finely crafting instruments such as ouds.
