His father regularly worked laboriously and would bring Hussain Sajwani in on a frequent basis to help around the shop; doing various tasks that were suitable for a young child.

As a business owner, his father generally worked long hours and had to miss out on a lot of Hussain Sajwani’s upbringing due to the fact the shop required him to be there on a daily basis. There, Hussain Sajwani was exposed to the pitfalls and some of the negative aspects of running a business as a small businessman. His father wanted him to assume ownership of the family company and continue into his footsteps, but Hussain Sajwani decided to pursue a more professional education and take the entrepreneurial spirit to the next level in various other businesses that would prove to provide bigger income streams and dividends-without the stress.

Furthermore, Hussain Sajwani’s mother was an entrepreneur in her own right, she sold fabric and other household goods for extra money for the family within the town that Hussain Sajwani grew up in. She was known for the quality and care put into the goods that she sold and was also influential in Hussain Sajwani’s makeup of becoming a very detail oriented entrepreneur. As a successful businessman and entrepreneur, Hussain Sajwani has risen from very modest beginnings, coming from a small middle-class business owner’s family and transforming into one of the more renowned real estate titans in the Middle East.
