Sheikh Mohammad, Dubai’s great leader

sheik2“What’s the name of our Sheikh again??” 

I must have asked this a million times already, but I always can’t seem to remember his name… maybe it’s because I just wasn’t very interested.. but lately he’s been getting not only my attention, but admiration as well. 🙂

I’d like to share with you a recent article in Gulf News that just shows what a great, hands-on leader Sheikh Mohammad is. 

Happy to introduce to you His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai…


Mohammad treats family to true Arab hospitality

Dubai: It was a once in a lifetime moment.

A European family on a picnic in Dubai was surprised when a 4×4 stopped near them.

It was none other than His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who was driving past (no bodyguards!) and saw a car parked by the main road. 

It seems the family parked their car which could not get any further into the desert, and walked a few hundred metres where they set up their camp.

Shaikh Mohammad noticed the car at the side of the road and footprints leading into the desert. Out of concern, he ventured in with his jeep and followed the trail to make sure everything was fine. He saw the family camping and taking pictures.

Greeting them, he welcomed them to Dubai and in true traditional Arab hospitality served them coffee, and spent time chatting with them.

The family experienced first-hand the chivalry and humility of a great leader.
