His novel The North Winds, which deals with the First World War and the the blossoming of Syrian national consciousness at that time, was described by critics as one of the most important historical novels in Syria.
He is also recognized for his original approach to television drama with the widely screened series The Silk Market, set in the political turmoil of the 1950s and 60s and which presented the environment, culture and dialect of Aleppo for the first time in Syrian television drama. His novel „Ali Hassans Intrige“ has been published in German and number of other languages.
