The Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, called the Ruler of Ajman a “partner in building the nation” on Twitter on Tuesday.
As of September 6, 1981, His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi assumed power as Ruler of Ajman and Member of the Supreme Council. As successor to his father, Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, who ruled Ajman for 54 years. The name of Sheikh Humaid is etched in the history of our nation, Sheikh Mohammed tweeted.
Sheikh Humaid was one of the founders of the UAE. By being his father’s representative, he contributed to the establishment of the Union. Born in 1933 in Ajman. He studied in a mosque as a young man, learning about the Quran, Hadith, and Islamic jurisdiction. Then he studied with a wide range of religious, linguistic, and mathematical scholars before going to Cairo to pursue his studies. He became Ajman’s Crown Prince in 1960 when his late father began establishing the early foundations of the modern Emirate.
