I think people say it because of plural marriage things,well we dont know her reasons but seeing recent photos of Haya,my heart goes out for Sheikh's first wife,while she cant be photographed and is never seen with her husband and has to be wrapped up in veils and burqas,Haya is free to wear couture designe dresses and walk hand in hand with her husband.how Hind endure this pain wonders me....

Did it ever occur to any one that maybe Hind isn't bothered by it? We won't know as we don't have her side of the story.

she's certainly bothered unless she doesnt have human being's feelings.but I think it's not Haya herself that bothers her,it's her husband.

I dont think thats true at all. Just because Hind isnt photographed doesnt mean she doesnt dress up like Haya does. Infact Arab first ladies are famous for wearing the best, most expensive, and latest European clothing. They are among the top couture clients in the world. All the biggest designer names have their boutiques in the Gulf and since that region is notoriously wealthy, even many of its average women can afford to shop at such expensive outlets. Even the ladies of the Saudi royal family, who are never seen or photographed, get the latest collections from Europe. One only needs to see a few interviews from these women in the western media and realize that they might be all covered up on the outside in front of the camera, but they have the best clothing, whether its lingerie, or a suit or a gown.
A low profile in the media can be deceptive but you can be sure that these women dont want for clothing or jewels.

Haya isn't the first woman to come into Mo's life outside of his 1st wife, Hind. There are/were other women in the past, and at this point, I believe that maybe it doesn't bother her so much. Now, I'm not saying that this is the right behavior to have in this situation, but I'm just suggesting it as a possibility. I mean I could always be wrong, but then as I said before, we won't ever know because her side won't ever get told.

has it happend to you to oppose what you've said before?
it happend to me an hour ago,I know this is off topic but I hope you just laugh as we did.
as me and friends were having lunch the chief resident asked me and one the guys to examine a woman who'd come with abdominal pain.we asked her to lie on bed,just when my friend leant forward to examin her,she started screaming and shouting over and over "get lost,get loooooooooost"!we were both shocked and didnt know what was wrong i suggested maybe there's a pin on the bedcothes!
at last when our chief calmed her down asked what the matter was?she replied"this idiot wanted to touch me!!"I just couldnt help myself laughing,the woman was over 60!
anyway there're really some women who wants to wrap up themselves in black chadors and veils and...their honor is that no man out of the circle of family has ever seen them like the women i mentioned,she was saying"i came here to be examined,not to commit adouTRFy!"
maybe this is Hind who's chosen not to be seen.it's maybe her own decision to live like that,maybe she's even satisfied with polygamy as it was what the prophet did too.who knows?

Not sure what you mean by has it happened to you to oppose what you've said before? Not even sure if that was necessarily directed to me. Anyhow, I agree...maybe, maybe, maybe, and that is the whole point, maybe. However, we won't know.

Calm down, it's ok.:) I was only asking because I didn't quite understand, and I asked simply for clarification. There isn't any need for any apology on your part. You didn't do anything wrong.

In my opinion noone on this world, deserves to be described as UGLY.

She loves him, and this is the most importnat thing.. She looked ever sad since the death of her father, and now after her marraige she looks happy again. So lets wish her the best.

when we'll never know really why she did such a thing,I just think that she was never brought up in the right way,she lost her mother so soon and his father was that busy that couldnt give her the care and the right advices a girl needs to recieve.

Haya is a fairly attractive woman, especially in the face. However, what disappoints me about Haya is that for all the education she received at Oxford she does not apply it in any way. After marrying Sheikh Mohammed in May 2004, it appears as though she has resided herself to endurance racing and horse races such as Ascot and the Derby.

She could do so much more with her life if only she would apply herself. She can not always ride on the back of a horse professionally. Her age will catch up with her eventually, and what will she have left to do? I am sure a charity or two will pick her up and she is already a patron of several charties now. However, her focus is not truly with this charites because if she were there would be more pictures and news articles about her meetings and visits. Sadly, Haya has allowed herself to be utterly involved with her husband's love of all things horsie. While Shk. Mohammed's first wife, Shiekha Hind, is promoting and patronizing humanitarian and philanthropic causes in the Emiraties, Haya is on a horse in Europe or standing around at a horse event with her husband. To say, Haya's role maybe to be her husband is sad because before her marriage she was at least relativel involved with causes outside of horses and horse racing. She has so much more substance than which she is conveying through the media by simply escorting her husband around Europe. I actually if sorry for her.

The answer is yes. Sheikh Majid and Mansour, all of which are sons of Mohammed's, are not Hind's sons. Majid and Mansour are publicly acknowleged children of Shk. Mohammed. Their mother is Lebonanese. Therefore I am sure she is aware of Mohammed's polygamy. And also polygamy is part of their culture.

Hind's choice is not to be photographed. Shka. Hind is apart of the older sect of Muslim women in the Middle East that do not believe in being photographed. It is said in the Emirates that you protect what you cherish. A sheikh who truly loves his wife he would never allow a photograph to be taken of wife because it would allow the world or strange men to gaze upon their most scared and prized pocession. None of the wives of Sheikhs in the Emirates are photograhed and that also goes for other Gulf Arab nations. The Emir of Qatar has three wives of those three only Mouzah has been photographed and that has only been in the last five to seven years. The Emir has been married to his wife for 27 years so.....you tell me?

Enough on the Emir and back to Haya vs Hind. Hind is the first and "traditional" wife and we must not forget she is also a citizen of Dubai as well as a national. Also note that Hind is the mother of Mo's official first born son and child therefore she is deemed priceless. Where as Haya is the expat or foreign wife who cares out a completely different role. Also note Haya was brought up under very different upbring than Hind. Hind is older and never educate outside of Dubai. Hind has never received a formal education outside of secondary education--high school. Haya has recieved several degrees from Oxford and educated in English boarding schools. Haya was all so born into a public role as daughter of a King, however, Hind was not.

Despite the fact, there are several other difference in these two women who care the title of wife of Shk. Mohammed bin Rashid, these difference must be weighed before chaiming in.

Also monogamy is not veiwed by many Muslims women as a key to a happy or successful marriage. Just breath ladys.................:o
