Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sheikh Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden (Arabic: Mu ammad bin Awa bin L din; 1908 - September 3, 1967), was a wealthy investor, businessman, and patriarch of the bin Laden family. He was a Yemeni emmigrant to Saudi Arabia, and married 22 times, fathering at least 54 children. Osama bin Laden is believed to be his 17th child and the only son with his tenth wife, Hamida al-Attas, reportedly of Syrian descent.A poor, uneducated native of the Shafii (Sunni) Hadhramaut coast of south Yemen, Mohammed bin Laden emigrated to Saudi Arabia before World War I, initially working as a porter in Jeddah. In 1930, he started his own construction business and after coming to the attention of Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, first monarch of Saudi Arabia, he eventually achieved such success that his family became known as "the wealthiest non-royal family in the kingdom."show more
