Yusef is Afia's father and the new calm, collected doctor of Walford. Not much is known about this mysterious figure, except he is loyal to his family but regretful towards his tormented past.
Yusef was once Zainab Masood's husband although the outcome of their marriage ended with disastrous results, leaving both of them scarred.
But what are Yusef's true intentions in returning to the Square?
After a brief time on the Square, he has wormed his way back into the life of his ex-wife Zainab; after drugging her with sleeping pills, convincing her to divorce Masood, admitting to the fire that scarred her permanently and subjecting her to mental and physical domestic abuse, Zainab idiotically agreed to remarry the demonic doctor and so in November 2011, they remarried in the front room of the Masood house, much to the disappointment of her sons, Masood and Denise.
Determined to make Zainab and Masood pay for what they did, a scorned Yusef knocked out Masood and set fire to Kimberley's Palace B&B, trapping inside Masood, Denise and Phil. While the fire spread, Zainab lured Yusef into the fiery chaos under the pretence that his daughter Afia was trapped inside also; while the others escaped relatively unscathed (apart Tamwar suffered burns and Phil suffered a heart attack due to smoke inhalation), Yusef died in the wreckage when the fire-damaged first floor caved in and sent him engulfed in the flames. Of course,such disaster on the Square means a festive holiday, and so Yusef died on Christmas Day 2012.
