In Palestine in the 1930s and in a village called Kweikat near Acre, Ahmad Aziz was known to compose and sing colloquial poetry. Ahmad fell in love with Rafiqa, his cousin on his father's side. He named her Jafra because she was plump like the daughter of the sheep, which is called Jafra in Arabic. Jafra was 16 and Ahmad was 20. Ahmad proposed to Jafra and she accepted to marry him. Within a week of their marriage, Jafra fled her home and ran to her mother and told her that she was not happy with Ahmad. The mother who cared so much for her only daughter, insisted that Ahmad divorces Jafra and her request was granted. Later on Jafra married her other cousin on her mother's side. When Ahmad lost hope in regaining Jafra he became lovesick and spent his time composing more poetry and music about Jafra. By then, his songs had spread like wildfire in Palestine
