She seems like such a genuinely nice person, I have heard of all the good works she has done and that she is highly thought of in Dubai. Why do they not show her picture? His other wife is often seen in public.

Sorry I am entering some of these threads despite them being old, but I have only just joined.

I doubt you will ever see an uncovered shot of Sheikha Hind. A lot of the Emirati women (over 45) especially from some of the prominant families such as the royals, Al Shamsi etc still cover either with the veil or with the Burqa (the gold mask).
I can asure you however that the majority of the UAE women when uncovered are breathtaking.

I have been told by close female Emirati friends who personally know her that she is as beautiful as everyone assumes.

yes...she is a beautiful lady with a beautiful heart..

most of the sheikhas in the gulf r not seen uncovered...
many of them wear veils to avoid their capture..
sheikha hinds sons n daughters look like their uncles(sh hind's brothers) more thn thier father so i assume tht they inherited thier beauty from their mother..

Does she have 'courtiers' from the influential families in Dubai or does she hold court with certain gatherings in Dubai? Anyone know her style in receiving people?

Wel, opinions about beauty are different. And if you think that sons and daughters are so pretty, it's your opinion.
I prefer woman who don't hide, like that sheika Maryam (she is an minister in UAE, I think).

That's a rather judgemental and loaded statement.
Some women will prefer traditional dress, some will prefer "Western" attire, and some will wear either, depending on the occasion.
To each their own.

Is there any particular reason why Sheikha Hind is always hiding and Princess Haya is always out in public either by herself or with Sheikh Mohammed?

Maryamii is right, it's tradition that Shka. Hind's picture never be shown to the public. Hind is the "traditional" wife while Haya is the "modern".

Sheikh Mohammed's private life reflects the two sides of Dubai. Traditional customs on the one hand, and a modern focus on the other. Both are parts of the same.

By way of illustration...

Traditional Dubai

Modern Dubai

They marry a sheikha first (from family or other close relation) and the marriage is being acknowledged. What they do then is up to them, eg Sheikh Mohammed obviously has two more wives who are not publicly acknowledged; I think Haya is a special case, due to her royal title and given she was a well known figure, regulary performing royal duties for Jordan there was no other way to marry in public and make her officially his wife. If she had been a no name she had joined the two others in secrecy.

I am born as a Muslim in Bosnia but I am not a practicing one. So I would like to ask all ladies that are from Emirates or other Muslim countries, what do they think about a wife " not being acknowledged"? Isn't that same as being someone's mistress? Or are they referred as an "unacknowledged" just because they have a child with Sheik, otherwise no one would mention them?

Is that a real picture of Sheikha Hind? I thought that her picture was not released. Well, if that is or isn't her, she is a very beautiful woman in the picture.
