He had a second son named Ahmad, [Hussein Fahmy] who returned after completing his studies abroad. Shawq tried to ensnare Ahmad but he resisted her; the father also treated Ahmad differently than he treated his brother because he loved Mokhtar best. Mokhtar blinded his father unintentionally in a welding accident.
