AURAK Pays Visit to Ruler for Ramadan
A delegation from the American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK) visited H. H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, to pay its respects during this holy month of Ramadan.
As a public, government-owned institution, it is an annual tradition and honor for the university and its representatives to be invited to the home of the ruler to observe Ramadan. The delegation, headed by its president, Prof. Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, consisted of male faculty and staff, who all individually greeted the ruler. The female faculty members and staff were also invited and graciously hosted by Sheikha Hana bint Juma Al Majid, wife of the Emirate ruler, and were privileged with personally meeting the Sheikha. Friendly discourse was held concerning the Sheikh’s vision for AURAK of providing the people of Ras Al Khaimah with a quality American style education before communing over a finely prepared meal.
Prof. Hassan was humbled by H. H. Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi’s continuation of this time honored tradition and looks forward to evolving the Sheikh’s vision into a crystallized reality.
