Princely tales have been inspiring throughout millennia. Princes and princesses are meant to inspire, that’s why they are called so. Land of Dubai or it might be narrated as the land of princes and princesses. It is said that a single man can change the fate of billions. Prince Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai born on 15 July 1949 actualized this notion once and for all. He developed a charismatic personality and character since he came into his senses. As the rituals dictate, he, with the passage of time, was expected to wed more than once. An all-inclusive illustration of male-dominated, cultural dominance, religious supremacy, and royalty oriented temperaments can be manifested via Dubai’s ruling elite. Muhammad Bin Al Maktoum is the ruler of this elite and all of Dubai. Things are expected of him. How can a single man achieve so many fronts in a single lifetime? Here intellectuals play the part via their wisdom to measure the success of one such man. What do they say?
“Success is a journey, not a destination.
– Arthur Ashe”
Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum went through an explicating journey that made him a renowned man and a leader. So many nominations amongst the most influential men of Dubai, the Muslim World, and the Globe even weren’t enough for him. His ambition for success made him fight for excellence. In April 2006, he came up with the idea disclosed in a book named My Vision-Challenges in the Race of Excellence letting the globe and global leader his goals and ambitions towards success and better of his people.
Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Journey of Achievements:
Destiny and Time always have misbalance. When the time is right, destiny doesn’t favor. When destiny is kind, time isn’t in the right dimensions. Only a few amongst billions have gained the kindness of Destiny and the Time concurrently. Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum became the interpretation of this notion via his accomplishments. He started the journey of achievements on November 01, 1968. A journey that never stopped. A journey of gradual excellence.

The Stature for Setting the Precedence via Princely 8 Principles:
You go for a mountainous journey, you acquire so many tales to tell to your family and friends. Tales of enjoyment, experience and the explicating views of the valley. Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum had a journey of achievements for decades. During that journey, he acquired prestigious exposure and experience that could be the leading light in forms of reliable rules for the rulers and generations to come. Here are the famously acknowledged 8 principles of the aged prince derived from his lifespan experience and exposure.
- A union is the Foundation
- No one is Above the Law
- We are a Business Capital
- Three (Credible, Resilient, Excellent Government) Factors Drive Growth
- Our Society has Unique Personality
- We believe in Economic Diversification
- A land For Talent
- We Care about Future Generations
A U-turn of Betrayal in the Journey of Accomplishments:
Trojans know above all what the betrayal of a besom can cause. Their souls are the only aspect in the universe that faced the wrath and consequences of a royal betrayal. A prince doesn’t only inspire the elite but the princesses of his stature. That inspiration was witnessed once again on April 10, 2004, in the form of a Wedding Ceremony of Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai and Princess Haya Bint Hussain of Jordan despite the fact that Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum already had five wives at that time. Sixth wife, princess Haya was the most beloved one amongst all. How did that come to pass? No one knows much about the rest of the wives and their kids but Haya. She managed to gain the prestigious stature in sheikh’s life. She started having an influence in managerial jurisdictions of Dubai. She was the one going out with Sheikh on internal as well as external matters of state amongst foreign and national dignitaries. Until the very recent royal delegation meeting the queen of the Kingdom of UK that proved to be her last royal trip.
What actually happened Between Haya and Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum?
Suddenly, in May 2019, there came a piece of news from the middle gulf that spread across the region and then the globe. The world had known that Princess Haya Bint Hussain had left her husband- ruler of Dubai- for Germany primarily. It indeed was a piece of shocking news coming from the Arab World. Leaving a lady of this stature leaves so many questions and conspiracies. It is believed that Princes Haya was concerned about the safety of her children and herself. Why the notion of safety came across between Princess Haya and Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum?
Earlier there was another disturbing news that Princess Latifa – daughter of the ruler of Dubai – had tried to flee. A try that proved to be a failure for her. Since her capture, things were building pressure on Sheikh as well as in the entire royal family. Princess Haya, it is said, had reservations about the way Princess Latifa was being treated after her capture by securing forces of Dubai from a yacht leaving from Dubai. This incident added the severity between both. Reservations of Princess Haya got more prevailing.
The question here arises that why Princess Latifa was trying to escape? And why only Princess Haya had the reservation about her treatment despite the fact that there are 29 other children of Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and five other wives living happily in Dubai? No one heard a thing from the rest of the children and wives on the matter except Princess Haya? These questions leave a big question mark on the personal credibility of Princess Haya and Princess Latifa.
Meanwhile, during all that, Princess Haya was planning her escape from Dubai. Earlier in May 2019 right after the royal visit of Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to Queen of Britain to which Princess Haya was accompanying her husband, she left for Germany leaving her husband Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum for good. A diplomatic crisis developed between Germany and Dubai when German Authorities refused to hand her over to Dubai.
Leaving the mark of crisis in Germany, Princess Haya finally went to Britain that was her planned destination. Her flee from Dubai itself raises serious questions about her personal integrity that she is trying to cover in the name of SAFETY CONCERNS.
Developing Battle between Princess Haya and Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum:
Princess Haya developed the influence while she was with her husband. Now, she is trying to use that influence at her best. The very glimpse of that comes from the fact that she hired Renowned Divorce Lawyer Fiona Shackleton who played the part in Princess Diana’s Divorce. A bigger indication for the Arab World The divorce is expected to be worthy in entire British History amounting to 4.5 Billion Pounds.
Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum would be fighting the legal battle in the courts of the UK a place where he was invited as a Royal Dignitary months ago. Things make sense. Amongst so many speculations, conspiracy theories, and the strategic insights, Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum came up with an utmost classic manner to reveal his disappointment via a few poetic verses.
“You betrayer, you betrayed the most precious trust, and your game has been revealed.”
