His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, published a poem on his official Instagram account urging Qatar to return to the Arab fold.
Titled Al Dharb Wadeh (The Route Is Wide And Clear), the poem starts with Sheikh Mohammed referencing the Qatar crisis. He said the noble stance the UAE has towards its neighbours means it is, and always will be, the champion of rights of neighbours.
"We will keep advising Qatar openly in line with the instructions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), when he said in a prophetic Hadith (saying): A wolf eats only an out-of-the-way sheep," it read.
Alongside the poem, Sheikh Mohammed posted a photo of him and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. In the poem, he called Shaikh Mohamed bin Zayed the best brother and supporter. He said they were each other's heart and soul and stood together to preserve the country, protect the Emirati people and ward off aggression.
As the poem progressed, Shaikh Mohammed said Qatar should return to the passionate umbrella of its home, the GCC, which will safeguard it from the fangs of wolves.
"Now, it is time to get united and be one heart and protect each other without any grudge or hatred." Shaikh Mohammed said.
He also reaffirmed that the doors of dialogue are still open, saying "whatever the differences, our neighbour shall always be safe".
