Maybe they are to young to get married now.
Sheikha Hussa's husband is a relative and so is Sheikha Latifa's husband.

does anyone of you know what is the difference between a princess and a sheikha? Is a sheikha not also a princess? And why aren't they called Princess but sheikha?

a Princess is from a ROYAL family when the ruler is a King
a Sheikha is from a ruling family in Gulf countries which means a Big Tribe that people decided to give the power to rule them, as far as im concerned

Hi everyone!

I have a question I am not sure if this was asked before since I have not gone through all the posts but if Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is the eldest son of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum how is it that Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum was made Crown Prince. Does the title not pass on to the eldest son? (PLEASE NOTE THOUGH THAT I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO OBJECTION ABOUT FAZAA BEING CROWN PRINCE).

What is the process used by the Dubai ruling family?

Well its not a kingdom so the title doesnt necessary go to the eldest son but to the person they think is the Best for the title: brother , son , cousin ...
Like Before Sheikh Mohd it was Sheikh Maktoum his brother

There is a reason they are called Ruling Families and that is the family powerbrokers decide who should be entrusted with State responsibilities and positions of authority.
In Rashid's case, being the first-born son of the Senior Wife was obviously not enough.

To have a king as the ruler the UAE would have to be a kingdome.
But they´r just an emirate so the ruler is an emir.
If it was declared a kingdome the ruler would automatically become king like it has happened in Bahrain but that will probably not happen in the UAE.

I know it's a weird quest but I can't get it out of my head : All the mohd-kids wear the same riding boots but in different colours. Does anybody know from which brand they are, or where I can get those? I fell in love with the golden one that Majid wears all the time. And I need them lol :)

I think best will be if you ask Maryam or Sheikha on Twitter. I´m sure they will answer....

Hello, This is my first post and I am not to familiar in the al maktoums' activity for helping people with disabilities/ special needs. I have a daughter that is special needs so I know a great deal about the challenges. I have worked years with people special needs, I was wanting to know what they do to provide for those that are disabled. I am also with hopes to one day be able to converse with them and to see if i can be a beneficial asset to improve the care/awareness of special needs. I am aware that Sheikh Majid is the ambassador of Dubai cares and I have been unable to make contact. What I am saying the truth. Walah I am honest. I know it is God's choice if I am able to help spread the word. Thank you all and have a great day!

^^ I actually have wondered the same thing AmericanSweetheart.

I work with students with disabilties at a university and after my first time experience going to Europe on vacation this past summer I was shocked to see so many accessibility issues that people would encounter, especially those with other physical abilities. I know here in the U.S. we have ADA laws that need to be complied with and I wondered when I read about Dubai's program if there are specific accommodations being set-up/made for all people with other abilities.

Is there a website for this particular program? I'd be curious to read it as I do know of a student wanting to do exchange at American University in Dubai.

Perhaps that two people trying for the same cause can have more luck. Which university do you work at if you don't mind me asking. I am afraid that unless it affects them personally or someone that is close to them that has these problems then something will be done. I really admire this family for what they have done, I feel that they are truly very good people.

I searched using 'abaya' and nothing came up on this thread, so my apologies if my question has been answered before.

We are all used to seeing HH Sheikh Mohammed's beautiful daughters uncovered and his junior wife HRH Princess Haya also. Is this just a Sheikh Mohammed thing or do the daughters of his brothers do it too ?

Also, when the girls get married, presumably they cover if their husband wishes it ? Are there any who remain uncovered after marriage ?

I thinks it's a decision they can make by themselves. As you can see Shaikha Shaikha is still uncovered after the marriage but you hardly see any pictures from her since she gave birth to sheema. same thing with latifa. there are picture from her before she married the crown prince of fujairah but now you don't see her anymore. I don't think it's a "mohd thing" from what I now their cousin latifa (the show-jumper) is uncovered too while their cousin lateefa (the owner of tashkeel) is covered from what I know. So it depends on what they want. Please correct me if I'm wrong. :)
