As dazling said..the title Sheikha is ginven to the royals in the gulf..
even in bahrain..king hamad's other wives are not sheikhas but they are titled as sheikhas..
A sheikhs wife is always titled as a sheikha=)

Thanks for answering my questions...Another query--Why is Princess Haya of Jordan retained her title as Princess and not changed to Sheikha since she married Sheikh Mohammed???..

I guess it is one of the following:
- Princess is an equally high or higher ranked title then Sheikha so there is no use for Haya to change it
- Haya wants to distance herself from the other wives of Mo.
- Mohammad is very proud to have married a Jordan Hashemite princess and he wants everybody to know.
- Haya is very modern and the title princess sounds more modern then sheicha
- Haya is very modern so she didn't want to change her own name just because she married

Bettina, to answer your question... i think the reason why Princess Haya didnt change her title is because: titled women do not loss their titles when they get married, unless through their marriage they are acquiring a higher title (for example, in the case of Haya it would be queen)...and since she wasnt going to get the title of queen, she retained princesss.
I actually read this some where.(not about about princess Haya but about titled women)

I also think your question was a very good one.

i think princess and sheikha might be two words to describe something similar. like an orange and tangerine. they are both similar and one isnt better than the other. they are the same but different. please no one attack me for comparing princesses and sheikhas to fruit i was just trying to think of example and mean no offense!

i think the thing w haya that people forget that by being a member of jordan royal family she is a desendent of prophet mohammed. i am not muslim and not an expert but i heard that somewhere and i can only imagine that is a huge deal.

I've just deleted a completely unnecessary exchange of hostilities on the topic of Princess Haya's title. It ought to be possible to disagree without accusing other people of malicious intent. Please remember our rule about exchanges of opinions at TRF:
  • Insulting comments about other posters and royals are not permitted. Criticism is acceptable; insults and flames are not. We expect our members to treat each other with respect.
I hope this nonsense won't flare up again, because it isn't fair to other people who are trying to have a sensible conversation.

Do people in Dubai usually have big wedding or only small ceremony? How about the children of Sheikh Mohammed? Because I saw pics of Sheikh Mohammed's wedding to Princess Haya, and it's a SMALL ceremony for a ruler and a princess..

Sheikh Mohammed's son was there as well, Sheikh Hamdan.
I think since a signing took place & was announced than its considered an official marriage.
Yes, It did come as a suprise to many of the UAE people since it was very unexpected.

I have a question.. So when for example a member of Al Maktoum family got married, will they make a big celebration, or mostly they just have a simple Muslim wedding ceremony, such as the Nikaah in a Mosque?

This thread has been cleaned up and re-titled Marriage Customs of the Ruling Family.

• Posts discussing marriage customs in the UAE, Gulf States, KSA, Jordan, Turkey and Uzbekistan have been moved to a new thread in Members' Corner called Marriage Customs in the non-Western World.

• Posts not discussing marriage customs have been removed.


Please keep all future posts relevant to the marriage customs of the Al Maktoum Ruling Family.

Thanks for everyone's cooperation.

How interesting to learn about the marriage customs of the ruling family of dubai. It will be interesting to see what happens with Hamdan and Rashid in days to come.

When a public announcement of Hamdan's engagement is made it's a sure bet the news will make it into these Forums.
