The UAE woke up on Saturday morning to the sad news of the demise of Shaikh Rashid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He died in the early morning hours aged 33. The body of Shaikh Rashid was shrouded in a UAE flag and was carried by his brothers Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed and a tearful Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed, who led the procession at Zabeel Mosque. Thousands of Emiratis and expatriates on Saturday evening attended funeral prayers for Shaikh Rashid, who was laid to rest in Umm Hurair cemetery in Al Fahidi, Bur Dubai after a poignant grand procession.

Other siblings, Shaikh Majid bin Mohammed and Shaikh Mansoor bin Mohammed, and other members of Al Maktoum family, were also present.

President Shaikh Khalifa declared three days of mourning across the UAE, with flags at government departments and institutions to fly at half mast.

We belong to Allah and to him we shall return.
May his soul rest in peace.



Shaikh Rashid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
12/11/1981 - 19/9/2015

Rashid - meaning, rightly guided, went down the wrong path despite such promise. I have been reading about him for many many years because he had this incredible intensity about him. A real kingliness, if you will. As the first official son, he was the favorite heir presumptive and said raised to take after his father. But he went down the wrong path and his father punished him severely by taking away his purpose. He never took is out on Hamdan, but he was broken. He never overcame. Such a promising young man, I wish he did not go down the wrong path.

Thank you for posting the video of his funeral prayers. Indeed I am shocked and saddened by his early demise. May Allah grant him peace and forgiveness. Al-Fatihah.

Shaikh Rashid included: Shaikha Hind has 12 children. 7 daughters and 5 sons. Her face was never showed publicly.

Thanks.
It is always so sad, especially when a tragedy hurts people who are supposed to have everything to be happy.

Although the official cause of death has been given as a heart attack, allegations of drug and steroid abuse and of several stints in rehab have long percolated through Emirati society circles.
So what REALLY happened to Dubai's Sheikh Rashid? | Daily Mail Online

It is awfully sad indeed. esp. at such a young age and in such a way. May he rest in peace and may the family be consoled by the knowledge that his suffering has ended.

Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed penned an emotional poem (only in an colloquial form of Arabic = Nabati poetry) mourning the loss of his older brother, Shaikh Rashid bin Mohammed.

His poem, titled "My Brother: The Word", attempted to paint a picture of the indescribably tragic loss the young shaikh felt. Sometimes tears are the only expression one has when they are at a loss for words, he said at the start of the poem, addressing the tears of his weeping nephew, Ahmed.

Shaikh Hamdan expressed his sadness and loss, and wished nothing but to be able to give his time and share it with his brother, to see him alive again to tell him how much he means to him and everyone else. He compared brothers with friends. Friends are greatly esteemed but can turn on you and sell you – but a brother cannot, for it is a relationship that was never bought, he said in one verse.

In the poem, Shaikh Hamdan also expressed his daily struggle having to hide his emotions, hardening his heart around people only to fall apart when alone confronted by the gravity of the pain he felt.

It is certainly shocking when a young, healthy, person who has made no lifestyle choices of the sort that are known to damage one's health dies of a heart attack, but not so when someone who has the habit of taking recreational drugs and steroids meets that fate. If indeed he did take regularly take cocaine and hashish and steroids, his death is very sad, but not shocking.
