في ذمة الله

The Late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum
May God have mercy on his soul and may it rest in heavenly peace
and may God grant upon us endurance and serenity

المغفور له بإذن الله

الشيخ مكتوم بن راشد آل مكتوم

تغمد الله الفقيد بواسع رحمته وأسكنه فسيح جناته وألهمنا جميعاً الصبر والسلوان

وإنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون


  • Lovely tribute, Moryarti.

    Is what you have written in Arabic reflected in the English words above it, or have you written something extra?

    I would love a translation if it's the latter.

  • sorry about that nzm - i never read it before in English. I hope the translation conveys the same meaning it does in Arabic ..

  • No need to be sorry - just wanted to know!

    Arabic is so much more of a poetic and emotional language than English - at least I always think that it is when I read the English translations.

    From what I now read in your addition, I think that I'm right! :-)

    Thanks for doing that.

  • Rashid, Zayed, and now Maktoum.
    Another of the old guard gone.
    Condolences to the folks of Dubai.

    I got the news while on the bus to work. Incidentally since it was to be the opening day of DSF traffic was a nightmare.

    I got the bus at 9:44AM and it took about 2.5 hours to get to work from Muraggabbat to Wafi!

    It usually just take 30-45 mins.

    I got to work and was told to go home.

  • Condolences to the people of the UAE. I have heard alot about the late leader's kindness and generosity but perhaps all his 'humanitarian projects' were not worth a mention in the GN yesterday?Strangely it projects him as guiding light and lists a few 'significant ' developments during his rule such as Burj Dubai, dubailand, Internet city ...
