Physical Appearance[]

Farah has black curly hair, and brown eyes.


Before Alison's incarceration[]

When Farah is a child, Alison and Hassan discuss bringing in a second wife into their marriage, to better divide up chores, working jobs and spending time with Farah, whom they call Noodle. Hassan is against the idea, but promises to consider it for Alison.

At her tenth birthday party, Farah is seen bowling with her father, whilst Alison and Hassan's new wife Sahar set up the birthday table. After bowling a gutter ball, she declares that she sucks. Both Sahar and Alison tell her she doesn't, and Sahar intervenes by showing Farah how to bowl straight. Alison and Hassan look on proudly and declare that their plan is working.

At a later date, Sahar takes Farah shopping. Farah returns home with pierced ears which Alison objects to, calling it body mutilation, and is unhappy that Sahar made the decision without consulting her. Alison asks Sahar to take Farah into the den so that she cannot hear her biological parents discussing the situation. Hassan sticks up for Sahar and says that she is part of their family now, but Alison is unhappy that decisions about her daughter are not ultimately hers.

In a later flashback, Alison arrives at a diner and admires her own newly-pierced ears before heading to the door. However, as she looks through the glass, she sees Farah, Hassan and Sahar are having their photo taken and looking like a perfect picturesque family. Disheartened, she walks away from the diner ("Litchfield's Got Talent").
