Another gang leader named al-Halbawy [Farid Shawqi] also wanted to marry Sabah. This created a conflict for Sabah's father Badran and a rivaly between al-Halbawy and Saad the Orphan, although arrangements had been made for Saad the Orphan to marry Sabah, since this was what Sabah wanted and her father Badran had agreed to it. There was a fight on the wedding night between al-Halbawy and Saad the Orphan where Saad the Orphan prevailed. Then there was another fight the same night where Badran was killed after Saad the Orphan learned that Badran, his father-in-law, had been the killer of his father and mother.
