oh now I understand you .
well it is today in ME 3 august but I don't think it will be any official ceremony to naming the new king
he just will receive the tribes leaders and a lot of people to receive their approval and support for him and continue receiving the condolences .

I saw in TV arriving of the king of Swedan and it was late in the night so maybe the king will receive him in the morning .

thanks for the pics everyone.

i am surprised us vice pres will be there --- i would think he would want to keep the distance and send a lower level person (in terms of heirarchy and media attention) in.

chirac, on the other hand, does not surprise me.

anyway, the funeral seemed very simple and yet very moving. there's something about seeing a king being buried simply --- without even a marker on his grave.

yes I thought that was a pretty humbling moment too, the King buried in an unmarked grave beside other royals and commoners. It may may not be so in real life but in death we are indeed all equal.

Legacy of King Fahd

Thanks to you all for sharing links and pictures. I have enjoyed them all.

Humera you in paricular fill this forum with some of the most interesting pics that can be found. You get a thumbs up for your extensive efforts. I am beginning to depend on you to bring it to us..no pressure there :)

For a very informative article about King Fahd please read Legacy of a King. The article is long, perhaps you would like to copy and paste it to a word doc and read at your leisure. It is very interesting reminder of the history of Saudi Arabia during the reign of King Fahd. For those that do not read Arabic, the article can be read in Asharq Alawsat Nwspaper, the English version link is:

http://www.asharqalawsat.com/english/news.asp?id=1071&section=3

A great leader, much loved by his people, King Fahd was the son of the founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, King Abdulaziz.

Born in 1922, King Fahd's life was one of positive achievement, both in the national and international arenas.

One of his first official engagements on behalf of Saudi Arabia was as a participant in the San Francisco conference that established the United Nations and of which Saudi Arabia was a founding member.

One of his first acts as king was the production of the Fahd Peace Plan. In the 1980's, he devoted his time to resolving Arab differences particularly between Algeria and Morocco. He was also the architect of the Taif Accord in 1989, which ended civil war in Lebanon. In the early 1990's, he led the Arab world in opposition to the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq.

I have a question, what's the name of the Moroccan Prince on the right of the Sultan of Brunei? How is he related to King Mohammed VI?

Adminstrators please monitor

A much respected soverign King Fahd (may his soul rest in peace) has passed away and his legacy is proven, it can not be denied, they are the facts. He is respected and praised by many throughout the world. This respect is evidenced by the number of royals, dignitaries and common people that have traveled to Saudi Arabia for the sole purpose of offering condolences to his family and the people of Saudi Arabia.

This is neither the time or proper place for unproven unsubstaintiated disrespectful rumors. It will be up to the TRF Administrators to issue a warning if they deem these types of comments inappropriate and intolerable. My plea is that trollish behavior be ignored, they serve no value or purpose. Let us all try to maintain our dignity out of respect for our fellow posters and ourselves.

It would be a shame for a thread associated with the death of a king be locked/closed becasue members were disrespectful, hopefully we can avoid that fate.

It's against board rules to introduce politics and political opinions into threads. I hope that now some posts have been deleted, we can get back on topic and stay there.

This may be a rather funny question, but does anybody know what prayers were being said during the funeral?
