Sheikh Mithqal Al Fayez
Mithqal bin Sattam Al Fayez is Bani Sakher’s leading sheikh and commander in fighting. He fought in the Great Arab Revolt’s battles along with the cavalry of his tribe, before the French occupation betrayed Syria and King Faisal I left. Jordanian nationalists then gathered around Prince Abdullah bin Al Hussein and efforts to establish the Transjordan Emirate as a launch pad to liberate Syria. Here, Fayez had an effective role by supporting the nascent state, counting on the men of his tribe, whose influence extended from the outskirts to Balqa and continued in the depth of the Eastern Badia, in addition to spreading north and south.
Sheikh Mithqal was born in the late 19th century, and the first lessons he learned were how to deal with problems. His father had him train in horse riding, fencing and using a rifle. As a result, he grew up on the values of bravery and fearlessness. In the footsteps of his father, the sheik, Sheikh Mithqal became an expert in tribal issues and resolving tribal conflicts. As a result, his fame spread in the tribal judicial field.
