The UAEs Olympic shooting gold medallist Sheikh Ahmed al-Maktoum has called it quits just months before the London Games after being diagnosed with a heart ailment.
I had to retire due to a heart problem suddenly. Basically I have got a problem of heart enlargement, which was caused by a virus through cold. It has weakened my heart muscles and the heart performance has dropped very low.
I couldnt do any activity than walk for 1.2km. Cant shoot consistently a lot and the doctors advised me to stay away from all competition and I was forced to retire, said al-Maktoum, while speaking to Gulf Times at the ongoing Asian Shooting Championship. - Full article

Quite sad since he has been enjoying shooting & competing for the UAE team. He is one of the best on the team.

No, I believe they mean Shaikh Ahmad Mohammad Hasher Al Maktoum-they had a story about his retirement in 2008: gulfnews : Shaikh Ahmad, UAE gold medalist, to retire
(He is not a son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.)

Sheikha Sanaa bint Mana bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Quote:
Sheikha Sanaa bint Mana bin Rashid Al Maktoum was an amazing woman, one of the greatest Grand Old Dames of Dubai. In keeping with custom here, she lived completely out of the public eye. But she was known to have a powerful influence in the Ruler's Court, and was greatly respected and admired.
Read the rest of the article here: Secret Dubai diary: Farewell to a Dubai princess

It sounds like she was a formidable woman. Anyone have more information on her?

I've found the recent article about Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum and his second wife Natasha. It is written that their relationships are not perfect. Natasha feels that she's more "official mistress" than legal wife. Sheikh Saeed spends a lot of time with his first wife and their kids, relationships between two wives are not very pleasant. Most of time Natasha spends with her daughter in the palace and she can not do anything without Saeed's permission. Once Natasha did something without husband's permission, so Sheikh was pursuing her with a gun and was trying to kill her.


I had some doubts whether I had to post this article or not. On the one hand, neither the Alyievs nor the Al Maktoums didn't confirm it, so it could be untruth. And I'm not interested in spreading gossips at all. On the other hand, this newspaper is very reliable source, so everything is possible.
Anyway, moderators may delete my post.

Also I can not say whether this represents the true facts. All I can basically say is that for the women of the sheikhs no (or little) it is possible to do anything publicly to walk freely or spontaneously. When one enters into such a marriage, you must be willing to live in this function and with these restrictions.

It's very hard to say so. But life on the side of a Sheik for the wife has downsides. The forgotten many foreigners, if they want such a marriage. You have to respect these traditions and live a pure heart with them, otherwise the marriage is a misery.

To begin with, I am not sure that this story is truth, I just decided to share with you some information from reliable source.
Secondly, I didn't say anything about women's rights on the Middle East and their possibilities to go out without husband's permission. I just described one particular situation. And I'm not going neither to advocate nor to judge somebody, I just translated the article.
If my post seems to somebody rude or disrespectful, I'm really very sorry about it. This users could write a private massage to moderators, and Warren, Humera or dazzling may delete or edit my post

It is absolutely ok, you want to also share such information with us. For me as an Emirati, you havn `t offended me. I think it's good when things like that here in the forum also will be addressed. I'm sure you did not want to hurt the feelings of others. Women's rights are protected, especially in the UAE in general and women in our society have a high reputation. But that does not mean you do not then one or the other can also be viewed critically. It is the responsibility of the reader, to deal with this information and to ask for more interesting questions and gather more information. Many reports in the newspapers about my country are very one-sided. Either they only describe the exclusive site or describe what is absolutely negative. But all items (almost) forget that we have in our society, positive AND negative things, like in any other society also indicated.

First, let me correct you. It is Rashid and not Rashed. Rashid is the father of Hamdan. And they're family, Al Maktoum Family, is a wise, hospitable, generous, and a helpful family. Basically, they are rich because they work hard. They focus more on their countryman's comfortableness before their own. They are well-liked because of their good handling in the country on which they govern. They are not spoiled, they are actually sporty. Hamdan is the Crown Prince of Dubai, UAE. He is a semi-professional skydiver, a poet, and a horse rider. That's all I can share. I haven't yet gone through all your questions because I'm a new member here. Hope I helped and am glad to help. :)
