By now, most people in the United Arab Emirates have seen pictures of a sprawling desert village in the southern part of the country.
In reality, it is actually a village in a desert and one that has been inhabited for more than 4,000 years.
Built on the desert landscape, this village has a beautiful design that was built by an Islamic religious leader, Al Hamdulillah (the founder of Islam).
It is known as Al-Dhafaa, which means ‘the village of the mountains’.
The area around the village, called Dhafaa Al-Khafah, is a popular tourist destination, attracting many visitors.
But for thousands of years, Dhafah Al-Khalifah was home to the people of the valley of Al-Mudassar, who had a complex relationship with their ancient homeland, the land of the Al-Hassan tribe, a group of nomadic tribes who live in the mountains of the desert.
As such, they were called the Alhamdulilillah.
Al-Sulaiman Al-Naim, the great founder of the tribe, was the great grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
He was also the first ruler of Al Khafah.
He is known for founding the kingdom of Dhafas, which is still one of the wealthiest and most important in the Middle East, and was one of his predecessors.
Al Naim’s rule lasted until the death of his grandson, who was born in 1711.
Today, Al-Mahdawi Al-Asiri, the last of the current rulers of Dhaulas, still reigns.
Al Jazeera’s Farid Algabir reported from Dhaula.
