Hope it's not a repeated topic but is there any way to know the children of Sheikha Hind's relationship with Sheikha Hind?

I mean has anyone said anything about their mother in articles or interviews, etc?

I do not remember a situation where they talked about their mother public except for Sheikh Hamdan´s poem,but Sheikha Hind´s children usually organize something nice for Mother´s day. Sheikh Hamdan also dedicated a section in his biography to praise his mother:
"My mother Sheikha Hind – a true icon of a loving and caring mother – brought me up, as a youngster, surrounded by all her love and affection. She still supports in my adulthood in every possible way. I can never forget my mother’s deep devotion and kindness. I have great respect for her. I consider any society that does not value mothers worthless and dishonorable." (taken from biography | H.H Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum - Fazza)

Apart from that I do not remember that any of the children talked about their mother in public, but I guess it is a cultural thing because it is a patriarchal society (this can be also seen in the name-giving where you only mention the male ancestors). I guess they have a good relationship with Sheikha Hind, but we can only speculate because we do not know them personally and we should respect that they also have a private life;-)

Rashid is a passionate sportsman. He loves athletic sports, football and endurance riding.
Thank you Iman. It is good that the same is expected of all the children. Rashid really stands out to me about the crowd frankly because he looks very broody haha.

Broody???? Maybe sometimes he seems to be dour, critical and sour-balled. But not everytime.

It's ok to be a Mama's boy.

In fact it is excellent given that in the Gulf most families have nannies and kids see more nannies than mummies. This did not exist three decades ago.

If a mother of a Sheikh /Sheikha sometimes entrusts her children to one's safekeeping it doesnt mean she also dedicates the education of their children to a nanny only. The mother of a Sheikh is the one who knows best which leaderskills her children need later.

Wow ! I just realized that only one wife out of 6 is actually emirati.
Sheikh Mohammed married 5 foreigners wives.

It's interesting, All the more so as the UAE society struggles to keep its traditions, customs...............

He He He, the Shaikh obviously has taste and his cosmopolitan appetite paid off! Look at Dubai. Probably the best place on Earth to live and work for many many many. If I could have half his fortune and half the number of wives he has/had, I would not ask for more. He He He
Eid Mubarak to our Muslim members and readers.

The keeping of traditions and customs takes place in heart, and can not be accomplished by holding a passport alone.

All it needs are vision, will and commitment. The rest (wives, wealth) is not crucial to achieve your goals. Both can be supportive, but they alone do not create change or development of a society. EID MUBARAK!

Enjoy festive Eid in Dubai. It must be great there!

I sometimes believe that the ruling family is a little bit more open-minded and Westernised in their lifestyle than the general Emirati people who are usually more conservative and traditional.
Sheikh Mohammed and his sons were receiving a lot of education in Europe (UK) and travel a lot, so it is not surprising that they meet a lot of people from different countries and make friends or get married to women who are not born in the UAE. Nevertheless I am sure a Jordanian/Morrocan/Lebanese or even a Turkish person is probably closer to the Emirati culture than someone who grew up in Europe or USA.
Princess Haya probably has a similar lifestyle in Dubai compared to her native country and does not feel like a foreigner in the UAE. I guess that the German lady and Sheikha Mahra´s mother had more difficulties to adapt to this new culture and get used to a different language,social customs and traditions.

Oh, I see...

I don't think Sheikh Mohammed is the kind of man resting on its laurels !!

he can't afford to rely on his past achievements !


Anyways, Eid Moubarak to you too brother

Of course , and it's interesting to notice that. you can't deny it's a bit contradictory since the Governement tried to encourage marriages between countrymen.

It is just my thoughts

We share the same opinion on this specific point of view :)

Nevertheless I am sure a Jordanian/Morrocan/Lebanese or even a Turkish person is probably closer to the Emirati culture than someone who grew up in Europe or USA.



Of course they are ! Don't forget they are Arabs too ( except turkish people ) . They have the same unique blood running through their veins.


In fact every single Arab on Earth is directly or indirectly , rooted in the Arabian Peninsula.

So it is fair to say that the current Saudi Arabia is our original homeland

It is more right, to say that Yemen is the original homeland of all Arabs!

Try to see it this way: My statement is not contradictory to the lineage of government if you have in mind, that both (heart and passport) can act together in love of traditions and culture of your homeland. Without citizenship it is possible to feel love and passion for a country where you live. Also you can be a passport holder (a local) of the country where you live, but do not feel connected with its traditions, culture and heritage by heart. Which would you think is the most ideal way?

My rankings:
very good: heart and passport
good: heart without passport
bad: passport without heart

The government is striving to achieve the best. But the second best is still better than the third. My point of view was only a bit more modest than that of the government.

Yes , exactly !! a part of the Yemen we know now.

and I would quote the Arab nationalist Sati el Housri who said :

Is arab, anyone who speaks arabic, seeks to be Arab, and claims to be Arab "

Then we both agree.

I think that if one doesn't have a deep love of their country and a deep commitment to their community , therefore they can't contribute to socio-economic development of the country and can't integrate too. I reckon they may not look to their future in such a place .

We are looking forward to your future posts. Unfortunately there are not any news about Sheikh Rashid.
