His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, Member of the UAE Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, released the English translation of his acclaimed book ‘Hadeeth Al Thakera’ (Taking the Reins) at the Natural History Museum in the UK.
Originally written in Arabic, the book presents a roadmap of the important events that led to the formation and growth of the UAE. The English version is published by the Bloomsbury Publishing House, UK.
The release of the book in the UK takes forward the aim of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi to communicate with the global community and achieve enhanced levels of cultural understanding.
In his speech, His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, said: “Hadeeth Al Thakera includes a narration of the important events that led to the growth of the UAE. It highlights the factors that influenced the international relations of the UAE Rulers since the formation of the federation in December 1971 up until 1977. These details were etched in my memory.
“The facts are known to many, but were not documented earlier. We took a decision to compile them in a series of books to help the present and future generations gain knowledge about the history of our young nation and the humane approach that the UAE Rulers adopt in the running of the country.”
