Qut, the mother of the Demirdash boys, supervised each aspect of Ahmad's education. His mother placed her children, including Shaikh Ahmad, in a Catholic school. Shaikh Amad in his youth, had been trained in the Jesuit school and then at Cairo University, where he completed his undergraduate studies in the Faculty of Engineering, graduating as the top student in 1949. He enrolled at Manchester University when he travelled to England, obtaining an MS in Chemistry in 1953. Qut's majestic villa had been torn down, so there was not much left of the estate. Throughout that long period of time, reform has not been constituted in any definitive manner. The religious dimensions of healing were augmented and developed through a further embrace of public concerns.
