princely title

I have a question, are the grand children of HH Sheikh Sultan of Sharjah, considered princes, and do they get the HH or HE title? I know in some emirates the grand children don't get the princely title

In UAE we do not have princes or princesses....All members of ruling families considered Sheikh (male) or Sheikha (female). They can also be addressed with HH suffix which is most often used for a Sheikh/Sheikha who has public or special duties. The HE title can also get someone who is not a member of a ruling family but a senior official, like a high government person or an ambassador of UAE. The only exception: Princess Haya (wife of Sheikh Mohammed al Maktoum) retained her title as a princess because her title is higher (royal) than that of a Sheikha (non-royal).

Hi all,

Now and again, I hear about tribal elders who were/are influential in decision making for UAE rulers and their families, even selecting who the rulers will be. Some questions:
Who are these tribal elders for the Maktoum family? Are they all male?

Secondly, if they do continue to have influence, what sorts of things do they decide? Do they have the ability to make decisions about marriage, divorce, travel and educational opportunities, or career choices? Do they impact the opportunities that can be taken by women in the family? Do they decide who will be visible to the public or not?

It has long been regional tradition for rulers to hold open discussions with their people, be they common, merchants or the elite. Often, this forum is held by the emirate rulers as well as senior family members. This open majlis, or consultation, is held periodically; however, a ruler may also appoint another Shaikh or wali, to whom concerns may be directed by the general population when necessary. This individual is often considered a leading tribal figure whose trust is placed by his tribe as well as the ruler. Decisions made by rulers on the basis of consensual consultation with the elders and ruling members of the leading families and respected (senior) representatives of the tribes.This is an old tribal principle of what is now complemented by the addition of modern government standards, like Federal Supreme Council which is the highest legislative and executive body in the country formed by all rulers of the seven Emirates. The UAE also have a half-elected Federal National Council which consists of 40 members drawn from all the emirates. Half are appointed by the rulers of the constituent emirates, and the other half are indirectly elected to serve two-year terms. The FNC is restricted to a largely consultative role.

Decisions that affect the privacy of members of a (ruling) family (marriage, divorce, travel, education and so on) are made only within the family. For private decisions the opinion of the elders of the family is respected and valued. The female members of the (ruling) families decide independently to what extent they want to be visible in public. The deciding factors are often personal preference and own attitude to traditional values.

Does anyone here knew the Ruling Family of Dubai in person? Perhaps a friend of them or associates. I have some questions.

No, he is Officially single. and i guess she said "the marriage will take place in sheikh hamdan bin rashed..." not with Hamdan or of Hamdan. So there might be a banquet of this name. And the crown prince of dubai is Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohommad, Sheikh Hamdan bin rashed is some other person. :)

Salam/Hello everyone, I wanted to know why some people including friends and acquaintances of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed call him BU RASHID since we are told he is not married and as a result has no son named Rashid? May be I am thinking the wrong way, so will any enlightened person answer my query. (Of what I know is when you have a son, people tend to call you BU Rashid, Ahmed or whatever the name of the son is) Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks much! ��

Walequm Assalam. If his friends call him BU RASHID, then maybe they're just trying to tease him with the name of his future son that he had thought of.

No Rida, I don't think it is about teasing because if you see his Instagram account, there's a recent video in which even his Uncle calls him that. Plus not only this, the people I am talking about are his friends that hunt out with him. Also worth noticing is some local people from Dubai also mention him in their comment by the name of BU RASHID.

I don't understand why people keep some of their wifes secretly >_< IMO its absolutely fine with having 2-3 wifes but why give just one wife the position of being an official wife, why not treating them equally.

Because they are not official wives. An official wife ought to be a girl from family or at least an Emirati girl from a well rounded financial and social background. I think this rule mainly goes for a Sheikh who will rule the emirate. Anyways the logic however is unknown to me as well :)

And Ridah they do treat the wives on an equal scale just as Shariah suggests however there's only a difference of public recognition as in secret wives are not acknowledged or named publicly though people on the large are aware of such marriages. And I think the secret wives are not even a part of the family functions or involved in family meet-ups, etc. The only exceptional woman who is by and large an accepted and recognized wife of a prominent Sheikh is Natasha Aliyeva, wife of Sheikh Saeed Bin Maktoum. She was actually a waitress when the man proposed her and married her and the public recognition that she got from her husband and in-laws is an exception. She is a lucky women I must say. But on the other hand, I also believe that women who agree to become secret wives are already aware of what their official status would be since otherwise they could easily retaliate which they don't. So all in all if it is okay for those women why blame the Sheikh, they at least fulfill all their marital, economic and other rights unlike a lot of men around the world who opt for cheating women, extra marital affairs, visiting prostitutes, etc, all of which are socially, morally and religiously unacceptable.

I do get your point but what i'm saying is that a girl should atleast be given the position of being someone's wife. Like i would seriously mind if my future husband refuses to be married to me (just like Hamdan is addressed as Single). Don't take me to the parties or officially announce my name in public but atleast don't address yourself as a single. I hope you get my point.
