Sharjah and Other Emirates -  History


                                                   Sharjah

The Al Qasimi family of Sharjah is the larger of the two ruling houses. (The two branches of the Qasimi tribe rules Sharjah and Ras al Khaimah.) 

Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi (1942) of Sharjah became ruler in 1972, following the assassination of his brother, Sheikh Khalid bin Muhammad Al Qasimi (1965-72), killed in an unsuccessful coup to restore his cousin, Sheikh Saqr bin Sultan Al Qasimi (1951-65), whom the British had deposed. 

                                           Ras Al Khaimah

Ras al Khaimah, emerged as a major maritime power during the eighteenth century. The 'Qasimis' control of trade in the Persian Gulf area led to conflict with Oman and eventually with Britain, which was consolidating its colonial empire in India.

Following several naval battles, the British finally defeated the Qasimi in 1819, burning their ships and the town of Ras al Khaimah. Because of this history, the Qasimi inherited a historical hostility toward the British. 

Sheikh Saqr bin Muhammad Al Qasimi has ruled the emirate since 1948.  He is a contemporary of the former ruler of Sharjah, Sheikh Saqr bin Sultan, and, like him, tends to be suspicious of the British. In 1971 he refused to accept Britain's compromise for resolving Iran's claims to Tunb al Kubra (Greater Tumb) and Tunb as Sughra (Lesser Tumb), two tiny islands in the Persian Gulf.  (More at page:
International Disputes)

Sheikh Saqr bin Sultan has designated his son, Khalid bin Saqr Al Qasimi, as crown prince of the emirate.

                                          Other Emirates

The rulers of the other three emirates have limited influence within the UAE. Ajman, Al Fujairah, and Umm al Qaiwain are relatively small, poor, and dependent on their wealthier neighbors for development grants. 

Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi has ruled Ajman since 1981. 

Sheikh Rashid bin Ahmad Al Mualla has ruled Umm al Qaiwain since 1981 as well. 

In Al Fujairah, where a majority of the population claims membership in the dominant Al Sharqi tribe, Sheikh Hamad bin Muhammad Al Sharqi has ruled since 1974.
