DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: Emirati notables pray for the start of the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha 20 January 2005 in Dubai. Saudi King Fahd and Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz marked the start of Eid al-Adha today with a call on Muslims to disavow terrorism, which they said was taboo in Islam. Some two million Muslim pilgrims from around the world performing the annual hajj were due to return to Mecca today, a day after the culmination of their pilgrimage on Mount Arafat, near the holy city.

Hi Lyonnaise, the arabs (even before Prophet Mohamed) loved horses. The Arabian horse has been a source of pleasure to men at all other times. The arabs love to have the Arabian horse, and it played an extremely important role in their life. Horses were considered as precious animal/thing to own and men were proud to own it, as much as possible and the best as possible.
And for children it was a must to learn how to ride a horse, at very young age.

Color preference was and still a good material for argument among Arabian horse breeders, as it is with most other horsemen. Very light colors, such as palominos, were not popular. The Arabian horses are classified as a distinct sub-species having characteristics differentiating it from other horse breeds. The differences are in the skeleton, conformation, courage, endurance and intelligence of the horse and these distinguish the arabian horse wherever it is found.

Now I guess only royals (in arab countries) who ride most the horses, since owning a horse(s) costs a lot.

So there are many reasons why anybody can love horses specially the Arabian ones as Haya and Mo do :)
Biritish does as well ...

horses are owned by many segments of the population in dubai and abroad. i think their is a sura of the Koran that says it is a muslim's duty to protect the arabian horse-specifically. also the modern thoroughbred race horse can trace it's lineage back to the arabian desert (from the region of oman if i'm not mistaken.) but the horse in this pic is a thoroughbred race horse not an arabian.

what you don't know, abir, is that mo's love of horses is only evident when he is winning. his equine related ethics has been called into question many times. and the state of horse welfare (in general) is deplorable in the emirates-which he could easily remedy but he doesn't just like so many other ills that plague the uae and dubai specifically.

and this is what is quite telling about haya. although many people might not like her and what she has done personally-her equine related ethics were considered top notch. but she married mo. and now she is guilty by association for some of the dastardly deeds that mo has committed and continues to commit.

Hi Ipi, I just answer to Lyonnaise question about riding and having horses, in general and mentioned the arabian horse .... which the arabs and the british love :)

Yes, I know poeple specialy who live in country side own horses, but I beleive it's part of the life in the country side in arab countries, ... it's more for work than pleasure as royals do.

Foundation comes to the aid of tsunami victims
By Bassam Za'za', Staff Reporter

Dubai: More than Dh5.5 million in aid has been donated to tsunami victims in Thailand by the Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation.

Medical equipment and services, in addition to relief support and healthcare materials, have all been donated by the foundation.

Ebrahim Mohammad Bu Melha, Deputy Chairman of the Dubai Department of Justice, Attorney-General and Vice-Chairman of the foundation's Board of Trustees announced the figure last week.

Supporters of charities and humanitarian organisations have also donated about Dh4 million worth of relief materials and cash to sufferers in Thailand and Indonesia, he said.

Bu Melha said a study was under way to reconstruct schools, hospitals, religious houses and homes for the needy, in cooperation with the Indonesian Ministry of Housing.

"The foundation has collected fishing boats, boat engines and fishing equipment for tsunami victims in Thailand.

"All the materials will be distributed to the sufferers in a special celebration scheduled to take place at the end of February in Thailand.

"The celebration will take place under the patronage of Thailand's authorities. About 200 families will benefit from this equipment because they work in the fishing industry," Bu Melha said.

Bu Melha said the foundation would be transporting eight highly equipped ambulances for use in remote villages.

He said these aid missions came under the directives of General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister.

"Following Shaikh Mohammad's call for quick action, our rescue teams travelled to east of Asia on the second day of the disaster.

"We were the first international humanitarian foundation, along with a special rescue team from Dubai police to step into the damaged areas, north of Sumatra, the mostly affected spot.

"The first step of the work was the search and rescue of victims, and that was completed successfully," he said.

The Dubai rescue team was made up of 35 people and a number of highly trained police dogs.

The rescue teams chose to go to Indonesia, first, because it was the country most severely affected, said Bu Melha.

The foundation set up four hospitals in different areas. He said that 42 physicians and 150 nurses were running the hospitals that could offer medical treatment for 250 patients and admit about 70 patients.

The foundation's general manager, Adeeb Mohammad Bin Lootah, said donations are still pouring in.

"Schools and university students and many residents have shown a high level of interest in donating aid materials and cash.

"Humanitarian organisations, public establishments and foreign communities residing in the UAE have also made a contribution," he said.

Abdul Rahman Bin Sbeih, who headed the rescue teams, praised Dubai police for doing an excellent job.

"The Dubai team rescued a fisherman who was thrown four km from the shore. He sustained several bone fractures. He fought for his life for five days on his boat. We were able to reach him and rescue him."
