[3], Her mother Sheikha Shaikha bint Saeed bin Maktoum Al Maktoum (who died on 28 January 2017) is the daughter of Emir Saeed II of Dubai, making Sheikha Hind a first cousin to her husband through her mother as well as second cousin of her husband through her father. The Japanese cultured pearl, first a wonder shown at expos and other fairs,[6] started to be produced in commercial quantities in the late 1920s. [1] A simple man, Saeed travelled to hunt in the desert and was respected for his staunch Islamic values. Loans, the issue of 'Creek Bonds' and reselling the land reclaimed by the dredging operations all helped to pay for the operation, which took place through the end of 1958 and into 1959.

Early life. On 29 March 1939, the Majlis was dissolved when a number of its members were attacked by Bedouin attending his son's wedding in Deira.[13].

He also signed a preliminary agreement for an oil concession (with British company Petroleum Concessions Ltd) on 22 May 1937, stipulating that local labour would have to be used in an effort to create employment for the people of Dubai. He presided over Dubai during the end of the pearling boom and through the long and difficult recession that followed the collapse of the pearling market, transforming Dubai into an active trading hub which developed new markets and economic opportunities. By 1950, the British Residency was clearly at a loss to explain the source of Dubai's wealth, which had by now grown to be considerable: "Dubai, in contrast with the moribund Sharjah eleven miles away, is a flourishing town... there is already a business-like air around the place, thanks to the Post Office, the bank, a branch of Messrs Gray, Mackenzie and the offices of Petroleum Development (Trucial Coast) Limited... to judge by the prosperous appearance of the bazaar and by the lively atmosphere of the whole town, its income, for a miniature port of perhaps eight to ten thousand inhabitants must even today be considerable.
