Al-qassimi ranking within U.A.E?
 
Hi,

I was reading some articles about the current status of the Al-qassimi family in Sharjah, U.A.E. but still have many questions.

Does anybody know if the current Sheik Sultan,(born in 1939) is still the ruler of Sharjah? and who, is assumed to be the next ruler when Sheik Sultan steps down?

I read some notes that there was a history of attempted overthrows and that even Sheik Sultan's brother was assassinated in 1972.

Does anybody have any thoughts or insights into what the future of the sheikdom of Sharjah might hold? How much money/power does the Al-qassimi family of Sharjah, U.A.E. have in relation to the rest of the Sheikdoms in the U.A.E.?

Any interesting statements on this family is very much hoped and looked forward to.

Tough subject, but does anybody have any info?
 
I know in the big scope of things royal, the Al-qassimi skeikdom is only a peripheral member, but does anybody here have any of the answers towards the questions I asked before or know of where I can get them?

Who is assumed to be the next ruler when Sheik Sultan steps down?

I read some notes that there was a history of attempted overthrows and that even Sheik Sultan's brother was assassinated in 1972. Does anybody know who was behind that?

Wikipedia gives a general rundown on Sharjah, and names Sheikh Dr.Sultan III ibn Muhammad al-Qasimi as the current ruler. He has a separate biography.

This, from the Encyclopaedia Britannica, confirms that Sheikh Dr Sultan III ibn Mohammad succeeded his assassinated brother.

The Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler is Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Bin Sultan Al Qassimi.

The Deputy Ruler postion can be confusing because there are three Deputy Rulers:
Sheikh Ahmad Bin Sultan Al Qasimi,
Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Bin Sultan Al Qasimi (the Crown Prince),
and Sheikh Abdullah Bin Salim Bin Sultan Al Qasimi, who was appointed in February 2008.
See this Gulf News link of February 2008.

H.E. Sheikha Lubna Al Qassimi, the UAE Minister of Economy, is one of the five women in the Middle East considered by the US-based business magazine Forbes to be among the world's 100 most powerful women.

Excellent news!

Little_star 09-12-2007 10:21 AM

I have to admit to being fairly ignorant of Sheikha Lubna and her work, although I have heard of her before.

Having looked into what she does, she seems a fascinating lady and though it would be a good idea to post details of some of her current/recent work.

TURIN (Italy) — The UAE Minister of Economy, Shaikha Lubna Al Qasimi, has become the first Arab woman to win the ‘Stella Re’ prize from one of the world’s most well known centres for contemporary art and culture.
Shaikha Lubna also became the second woman ever to win the prize which is awarded by the Italian ‘Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo’ foundation. “I do not see this prize as a recognition of my individual accomplishments, but rather as recognition of women’s growing contribution to society all around the world,” Shaikha Lubna said in her speech at the award ceremony held on September 10 in Turin.

The UAE needs to strengthen bilateral ties with Vietnam through mutual investment opportunities, the UAE minister of economy said on Tuesday.

Speaking during a meeting with Vietnamese business leaders, Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi called for greater cooperation between the two countries in the areas of healthcare, infrastructure, trade, investment and tourism.

Quick question: why do the emirates of Sharjah and Ras al-Khaimah have the same dynasty?

The Qasimi Ruling Family of Ras al-Khaimah is a junior branch of the Ruling Family of Sharjah. There were various separations and re-incorporations of the territories from about 1808 onwards, but since 1921 Ras al-Khaimah has been treated as independent.

Ras al-Khaimah
Ruler: HH Shaikh Saqr Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi (born 1918, Ruler since 1948)
Crown Prince and Deputy ruler: HH Shaikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi (son of Saqr, Crown Prince since 2003 and effective Ruler of RAK)

There was for a period a third Al Qasimi Emirate: Kalbă
This city achieved defacto independence from Sharjah in 1903 and after having three ruling Al Qasimi Sheiks was reincorpoarted into Sharjah in 1952.

~~~~~~

Sharjah and RAK are under the one heading here in the Forums because they share a dynasty and our focus is more dynastic than national. At this early stage of the new UAE Forum there's not enough information or material available to make them two stand-alone threads, but hopefully over time this will change. The emergence of Dubai and Abu Dhabi as significant international centres may help to raise the profile of, and interest in, the other Emirates.
