Amongst his business interests are ownership of the English Premiership football team Fulham Football Club, Hôtel Ritz Paris and formerly Harrods Department Store, Knightsbridge.

Fayed has two brothers: Ali and Salah, and a sister Safia. From 1954 to 1956, he married Samira Khashoggi.

Born in Bakos (باكوس), Alexandria, Egypt, as the eldest son of an Egyptian primary school teacher, Fayed's first entrepreneurial venture began at school where he sold homemade lemonade. He was married for two years, from 1954 to 1956, to Samira Kashoggi.
