  • Eastenders trivia

    How come Masood (husband) is called : Masood Ahmed
    zainab (wife) is called Zainab Masood
    Tamwar (son) is called Tamwar Masood
    Syed (son) is called Syed Masood
    Kamil (son) is called Kamil Masood
    shabnam (daughter) is called Shabnam Masood

    Why are they not Zainab Ahmed etc. They are a muslim family, does that have anything to do with it?

    I've never thought about that! I've just been to the official website and it doesn't explain - someone explain please!

      I just had another look. Someone asked the same question on yahoo! answers and this was the reply they got:

      His surname is Ahmed. His first name is Masood but in Muslim culture, the woman takes the husband's first name as her last name.
      eg. Amira will now be Amira Syed.

      I've learnt something new today :-)

            I guess if they followed followed tradition it would be Afia Tamwar...
            But if they don't Afia Masood.

              Id noticed the names where different but just put it down to a religious reason.

              I love the whole family.Ive watched Enders from day 1 and they are my all time favourite family.

              Cant wait for Amira to turn up with her and Syeds baby!!

                  I dont know for sure but there must be a reason why they made her pregnant.I asume so she can come back and cause a storyline for Syed and Christian.

                    Our Nigerian Muslim student is trying to decide whether to take her fiances surname or keep her own when they get married later in the year. She's very tempted to keep her maiden name.

                      I just have to say this as its been winding me up for ages.

                      Zainab has repeatedly said to Masood that he is a rubbish father, a rubbish husband and a useless man.
                      Can someone explain to me why the heck she is surprised that he mentions divorce to her!!!
                      I think any husband would run a mile if their wife said that to them.
