Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammad al-Qassimi (9 April 1918[citation needed] - 27 October 2010) was the Emir of Ras al-Khaimah, one of the United Arab Emirates, from 1948 to 2010.

He became the Ruler of Ras al-Khaimah on 17 July 1948,[1] when he overthrew his uncle and father-in-law Shaykh Sultan Bin Salem (or Salim) al-Qassimi in a bloodless coup d'etat. Shaykh Saqr exiled the Sultan to Sharjah. Under his rule, Ras al-Khaimah joined the United Arab Emirates in 1972.

At the time of his death in 2010, he was the world's oldest reigning monarch at age 92.

الله يرحمه ويسكنه الجنه

^^ Yaa, Seven years ago, he signed a paper which basically kicked out his son from Crown Prince and made his younger son Crown prince, which is the current ruler. A bit of drama.

Crazy, we have crazier threads about a basketball player joining a team or something. Seriously, who cares about that! loool

have fun in your 7 day holiday. I always though its 3 days, but the emirates like to exaggerate everything and make it taller and longer, even the mourning process.

He is a Child. He isnt responsible for his actions yet. give it time.

Anyway , for your information , we didnt get any holiday off work or school/colleges. its 7 days where the flags are half way down and the radio channels play Quran.

Next time , take your time to also read and understand.

Other emirates in your federation beg to differ... anyway you are the ones that should grow up and stop worshiping demigods.

He is a head of state, hence the 7 day mourning. He is reguarding as the last member of founding fathers of the UAE to die. So, its a huge deal there.

BTW, its 7 days mourning and flags at half staff, but 3 days of closed institutions at most Emirates.

Kid.... who is worshipping who ?

The guy is dead. Do you have no decency ? say Allah yerhamah and be quite.

when you die , i doubt you will appreciate people saying "who the F was he anyway??"

So anyway , like i said before in two words that sum this whole situation up

Grow up أعقل
