The National Day of the UAE is celebrated on 2nd December every year. This article will attempt to trace the background and significance of this glorious day in the annals of the history of the emirates.

UAE

The United Arab Emirates is a federation of 7 emirates, namely, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain, Sharjah, Fujairah and Ajman. From a desert land of yore, the UAE has emerged as a glittering metropolitan with the spirit of globalization permeating its very veins.

Let’s taste a slice of history

The UAE was formed in the year 1971 under the leadership of Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. In the beginning the UAE was a federation of six emirates to which the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah was added a year later. The national assembly has representatives from each one of the emirates while the Ruler of each emirate has to vote in the Supreme Council of Rulers.

The future beckons…

The UAE has trodden long strides since its birth 36 years ago. Its unparalleled economic growth over the years has been an object of admiration and a subject of analysis the world over, rising cheap holidays industry.

May UAE shine brighter in the coming years… Amen.

    I have been in this country for nearly 30 yrs and i have noticed the finer changes it has brought – only for the comfort of its people. Be it nationals or expats…everyone is so proud and humbled to be a part of the 37th National day. May Allah bless the ruler of this country and its people with good health and wisdom. Ameen.

    The dreams may vary from people to people (from a CEO to a taxi Driver) but the UAE helps people to get their dreams come true ,if not for all but for Many Many of them.

    May Allah bless its Air and all those who breath in it .
    May Allah bless its land and all those who walk in it.
    May Allah bless and protect the ” Unity” of the “United Arab Emirates” Ameen.
