Her maternal great-grandfather was Major-General Muhammad Sharif Pasha, prime minister and minister of foreign affairs, who was of Turkish origin.
Faika married Fouad Sadek, a commoner Egyptian and a consular officer, in a civil ceremony on 5 April 1950 in San Francisco. At first, King Farouk did not endorse the marriage, but later he confirmed it. Then they married in a religious ceremony at the Kubba Palace in Cairo on 4 June 1950.
