Mashallah. Alf mabrouk! Congratulations to him and his fiancee. Perfect match I think! Very good news! :flowers:
BTW: Her name should be Hussa bint Ali Beljafla.

They are known according to the DAS founders website "Reem & Hind Beljafla" I guess they leave out their fathers name which is Ali and use their surnames/tribe name.

There was been no official announcement as far as I know. But dazzling wrote it was mentioned on instagram and on Shaikh Majidīs forum.

Can someone in Dubai clarify if Majid is married or engaged? My source in the UAE said that he married to Hessa Beljafla. Most of the people on Instagram are saying that he signed the marriage contract and there are even photos of this. However, other people are saying that he is engaged and many others are wondering why there was no official announcement made in the press. Can anyone clear up this confusion? :flowers:

I think a melcha was made which includes signing a marriage contract. A melcha is more a privat matter and celebrated with family and close friends only. From the legal point of view with melcha the couple tie the knot. The phase of melcha can be seen as a kind of official phase of an engagement, because the marriage was concluded now but not consumed yet.The last step is to seal the marriage with wedding reception. In the case of Shaikh Majid it is more likely that the last step was not made yet.

Thank you, Imanmajed! :flowers:

I have never heard the word melcha before. Is that the same as what they call the Nikah? Also, would you mind telling me how to spell the melcha in Arabic writing? I am trying to learn Arabic & I am having trouble with some of the words that are native to the Gulf region.

lucymae88 01-28-2014 01:48 PM

I was told not to believe anything to a official announcement was made my UAE ruling family.

Yes, it is the same.

The melcha is a private family affair and the ruling family would never make an official announcement about it. However, the marriage has been confirmed by posts on Sheikh Majid's forum, and by Instagram and Twitter posts by known friends and family members of the couple. Also, photos have been published of the event by Hessa's sister and a close friend of Sheikh Majid's. :flowers:

Melcha = marriage. You would have to divorce to break it. As far as I know, Sheikh Hamdan was only engaged. I never heard any reports of him signing a marriage contract with Sheikha Sheikha.

Perhaps Majid learned from his brother and kept his engagement to Hessa a secret until they were sure that they would marry. :whistling:

lucymae88 01-28-2014 02:53 PM

Thanks, I finally seen a picture of it. I was just confused cause I haven't seen anything on his official instagram and on other pages I looked on. I agree I think the ruling family decided to keep this a secret till they knew they was going sign a contract between the families. I think they learned from Hamdan's broken engagement.

Imanmajed 01-28-2014 04:24 PM

as a complement to terms:

- khutooba (first sight or engagement)
- melcha (signing marriage contract)
- henna (special night celebreated by women)
- ers al reyayeel (menīs wedding reception)
- ers al hereem (women`s wedding reception)

A marriage contract seems to been signed (see #364), but this is a very private matter and usually not anounced officially by the ruling family.

So Sheikh Majid is getting married ? congratulations ! That's a very great and unexpected news !
Congratulations to both bride and groom:flowers:

From my understanding, there's no marriage ceremony held yet ? just the religious one , right ?

Thats right. In UAE there is only religious one and is binding legally. A wedding reception may be held later.
