He displayed total obedience to his father’s commands and orders. Fahmy was a boy who acted within the morals and values and does not

do something that would ruin his family’s honor. He was aware of his limits and was very careful not to cross it. He was aware of the consequences that he would have to face if he dared to break the codes.

He was aware that it would bring a bad name to his reputation and the family’s as well. The huge difference between Yasin and Fahmy was that Fahmy was much more obedient to the laws than his brother. Fahmy’s morals gave way to the fruit of independence and patriotism. He was a role model for everyone and possessed a true moral character.
