Widad is a mother of one daughter and five sons. Mustafa and Muhammad are university students while Mahmoud, Yousef, Ihab and Mayar are school students.

The family runs a women's clothing store that supports the family. Widad took out a loan from FATEN to purchase women's accessories and start selling them with the clothing, which will increase the profit and attract more customers.

Widad's son Muhammad is photographed instead of her, as she is a conservative woman and not comfortable having her picture posted on the web.
