IN OUR HEARTS

Shaikh Zayed in our hearts
Forever and always
Although you're gone
Your memory is alive
The nation mourns your departure
Tears flow from people’s eyes
The news of your demise
Shocked us, made us realise
Your leadership, your vision
Grace and courage in your mission
Wisdom, compassion
You are one in a million

Shaikh Zayed in our hearts
Full of love and compassion
You paved the way for success
Leading your nation forward
Creating a land of opportunity
For your people to prosper
In a just and fair society
The foundations you laid
Deep in the desert soil
Will grow till eternity

Shaikh Zayed in our hearts
May your soul rest in peace

— Maliha Kamal, Dubai

YOU TAUGHT US

Our land evolves
Our flag reaches its summit
Our foreheads tilt higher
Our hearts learn to love
Our palms understand unity
For you taught us to
Our minds seek the power of knowledge
Our faith continues to widen
Our laughter forms an echo
Our dreams bear no obstacles
Our plans always are a success
For you taught us to
Our elders are surrounded in harmony
Our toddlers build bricks for tomorrow
Our youngsters forever accelerate
Our future commences today
Our lifestyle is envious to others
For you taught us too

— Maryam Hassan Al Attar, Dubai

Talking Happy New Year Everyone!

Oh Cloud


Oh cloud, above all others!
Oh sea of generosity, let nothing bring you harm


Nourishing rain that brings life to kith and kin
But denies it to your adversaries


Is pure for your neighbours but not for your foes
To whom it offers but a bitter draught of woe


Fearless hand of generosity
No sacrifice we make for you can be too great


You ward off all misfortunes
All dangers banished with no efforts spared


In your inscriptions in the book of glory
Every letter betokens honour


So often did you wipe away the tears of the anguished
And bless the suffering with your compassion


As only comes from a hand which holds the lifeblood of the people
Their voices but an echo of your own


Too often are the people discordant
But about you both friends and enemies are of one mind


Zayed, you are preeminent, the people are ever-responsive
You protect them from danger and fear


Poetry elevates the undeserving
Lowers the highly respected


But in Zayed's case all is otherwise
Whose name itself brings honour to the poem


The henna-wearing one will sing for you
May you be secure your whole life


– Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed al Maktoum

Just for the record...Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who was the oldest son of the Emirs first wife took power.

As for a big conflict between clans I´m not sure, Zayeds sons with Fatima are hardly a clan in itself but a group perhaps?. The current crown prince is the most powerful of them.

you are right when you say that sheikh mohammed bin zayed is the most powerful among his brothers. although sheikh khalifa has the tribal loyalities, mohammed controls the military and the oil revenues. he is also responsible for the direction in which abu dhdabi is currently going. if you ask anyone on the street in the uae, they will confirm that mohammed has more power in the uae than khalifa.

I never understood who Al-Ain and Sheik Tahnoun supported really, they are linked to Khalifa and Mohammed but also prides themselves in being the ancient Al-Nahyan stronghold and tend to mind their own affairs in a more laidback fashion.

UAE's Sheikh Zayed on Newsweek's influential leaders who radically remake their countries

The UAE Founding Father, Late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al-Nahyan is on New York-based Newsweek's list of the world's 11 world influential leaders who radically transformed their countries in a relatively short span in the post-World War II era... - Article

quotes...

Sheikh Zayed is credited with creating the blueprint for the United Arab Emirates as a modern, relatively tolerant regional economic powerhouse, according to Newsweek. He was President of the UAE at its inception and was quick to launch the development of all the emirates and directed oil revenues into healthcare, education and the national infrastructure.

Sheikh Zayed liberalized policies on women's rights and religious tolerance, which the magazine said had improved on other Gulf countries and which had laid the groundwork for the UAE's rise as an international business center.

Emiratis recall Shaikh Zayed’s legacy

Today the UAE marks the 10th death anniversary of Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder of the UAE (according to Islamic calender, but he died 2nd November 2004). The Federal Cabinet of UAE decided to mark the 19th day of the month of Ramadan each year as the anniversary of the death of UAE’s founding father, Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, as Zayed Humanitarian Work Day.

Shaikh Zayed was a man who gave to his country, and the world, without expecting anything in return and who translated every good thing he knew into action. His achievements will remain in the annals of history and the hearts of Emiratis for centuries to come. He was wise and humane and he will be remembered for his generosity, justice and wisdom.

GulfNews

Shaikh Zayed’s humanitarian work around the world

The sweep of Shaikh Zayed’s humanitarianism is vast and it has touched millions of lives. From launching housing projects for the needy to providing food and medicine for people suffering from poverty regardless of race, sex, language or religion, Zayed’s inclusiveness was all-encompassing.
