About UAE

Archeological excavations and antiques found in many areas of the country have proved that a great civilisation used to be prosperous in the area known today as the United Arab Emirates. The civilisation dates back to 4000 BC, and was connected to the neighbouring civilisations. Pieces of coloured pottery that have been uncovered were imported from Mesopotamia. They date back to 3000 BC, which indicate the links between these areas and the people of South Iraq.


Various stone tools, sharp sword blades and metal sheets were found. Excavations show forts at Hilly site, Bidya, Tell Abraq and Kalbaa that date back 2500-2000 B.C. Recent discoveries show a square citadel with square towers at its corners, in addition to an external wall of 55m long, and a stone mould to make metal coins inside the citadel.


With the coming of Islam, a new phase of the country's history had begun, as Islam reached this country thanks to the Arab leader Amr bin Al-As. The Gulf area under the rule of Islam witnessed a prosperous period, and the Gulf became an international hub of marine trade and navigation during the Umayyad age when the vessel industry prospered.


An archeological site at Jumeirah area in Dubai has been identified as the remainder of an Islamic city of the Umayyad age, which was controlling the trade routes at that time. One of the known Islamic cities is Julphar north of the city of Ras Al Khaimah, where houses were found and four mosques dating back to the Hijri fourth century.


H. H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Founder of the Union


H. H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (may Allah bless his Soul), was born in 1918. In 1946, he was elected ruler of Al Ain and in 1966, he became ruler of Abu Dhabi. In 1968, Britain announced that it would withdraw from the area. Immediately Sheikh Zayed took the lead in calling for a federation of the emirates. The rulers of the emirates moved quickly and on the 2nd December, 1971, the United Arab Emirates formally emerged onto the international stage.


On November 2, 2004, Sheikh Zayed passed away, after a long journey of giving and achievements. In line with his vision, the nation keeps going under the leadership of H. H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of United Arab Emirates and the members of the Supreme Council of Rulers and their Crown Princes.


The emirate of Ras Al Khaimah joined the federation on 10 February 1972. H. H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan was elected the President of the country and H. H. Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum became the Vice President.
