His first short story appeared in 1925, and he established himself as one of the greatest pioneers of contemporary short story writing in the Arab world. His short stories convey attempts to express a certain philosophy on life, a certain stand or viewpoint and advocate human will which he considered the fountain-spring of all virtues. He believes that language is not merely a tool of expression or of conveying ideas but rather an integral part of the writing process in all literary norms. His study of law has had its impact on his writings which are characterized by objectivity.

Befal thee, I shall love thee to the last,
And bear thy memory with me to the grave.”
