Jalal Habeeb was the brother of Hassan Habeeb.

In August 2018, Hassan passed away in Weatherfield General having suffered a stroke. At the funeral, Saira Habeeb informed her son Imran that she had arranged for transportation to the service although he and his sister Rana would have to share a car with someone. Imran hoped that it wasn't their uncle, as he would never shut up, but the mystery guest turned out to be Imran's ex-wife Sabeen.
