He finished runner-up at both the World Open and the Super Series Finals in 1999 (losing in both finals to Peter Nicol). His career-high world ranking was World No. 2, which he reached in December 1998.
Barada won the World Junior Open squash title in 1994, as well as 4 British Junior Open titles in 1991-94 (1 under-14, 2 under-16, and 1 under-19). He shot to stardom on the professional circuit in 1996, when he became the first wildcard player ever to reach the final of a Professional Squash Association Super Series event, finishing runner-up at the inaugural Al-Ahram International Championship in Cairo.
In 2000, Barada was stabbed by an unknown assailant outside his home in Cairo. Following his recovery from this injury, Barada had a short-lived comeback, before officially announcing his retirement from the game in August 2001.  
Barada is now a professional singer.
