Video: Sheikh Mohammed posts emotional tribute to mothers
He recalls how close he was to his mum, in touching Mother's Day message.
The UAE Vice-President has paid a touching tribute to mothers.
Ahead of Mother's Day, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, posted a video that captured how close he was to his mother, Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
It was posted with an emotional message: “To all mothers ... Who is like you? You are the source of life .. You are life. Our words are unable to describe the amount of love and compassion that you have placed in this universe. God bless you."
In the video, Sheikh Mohammed says: "Sheikha Latifa bint Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, I was the closest to her. I have never experienced love like hers. I remember her words. People used to come to her. She had a lovely, strong personality. She was loved by all who knew her. There is no one like her."
Sheikh Mohammed is known to have been very close to his mother.
In his book, Qissati, he recalled the pain he felt after losing her.
"In May 1983, I lost my mother, my beloved, the sight of my eyes. And my father lost his life companion, his love and his friend after sharing more than 40 years with her. My father lost my mother, who never let anyone but her make his breakfast.
"It was a big funeral. Thousands cried for having lost the mother of Dubai.
"As they lowered her body to the grave, I climbed down, too. I bid farewell to her with tears that refused to stop."
