Origin Of Dubai

As recently as the year 1699, Dubai had become a part of the Ottoman Empire. When the Emirate of Al Rashid made Dubai the capital of the emirate, the Emir announced: “We are a city of two halves – one is called Europe and the other is called Asia. Therefore, we should be united like a single heart.”

The local ruler also organized a grand feast in the town hall to mark the occasion and invited the entire region to celebrate with him. Later that day, he set sail for the Italian city of Venice and crossed the ocean. Two years later, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire formally recognized Dubai as his capital.

The Sultan of the Ottoman Empire planned to further consolidate Dubai into a single country, and he began building a new palace for himself and his successors. And in 1868, he opened the Sultan Qaboos Al Maktoum Grand Mosque.

He hoped that through these great changes, Dubai would be able to rule over the entire Arabian Peninsula. To this end, he issue what is call as the Emirate Contract. Which require every member of the emirate to pledge allegiance to Dubai.

Today, many people in the United Arab Emirates have built their entire lives around their employment in the modern-day emirates of Dubai. And of course, Dubai has its own currency, the Dubai dinar, as well as a central bank, the Dubai International Financial Centre.

The Emirates are located on the east coast of the Persian Gulf. They are home to many of the emirates of the United Arab Emirates, including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, and Sharjah.
