The United Arab Emirates
United Arab Emirates Country Profile
The United Arab Emirates or UAE is made of a federation of seven emirates along the eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. The United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates, (or pronounced Al Imarates – In Arabic) is a sovereign state in Western Asia at the eastern end of the Arabian Peninsula. It borders Oman and Saudi Arabia and has maritime borders in the Persian Gulf with Qatar and Iran.
The Emirates was formally united in 1971, with the city of Abu Dhabi serving as the capital.
The UAE has seven states with Abu Dhabi as the Largest, Dubai as the second largest, Sharjah (Al-Shāriqah), ʿAjmān, Umm al-Qaywayn, and Raʾs al-Khaymah and Al-Fujayrah.
The History of The United Arab Emirates UAE
Historically the United Arab Emirates was a domain of individual Arab clans and families, the region now comprising the (UAE) emirates also has been influenced by Persian culture owing to its close proximity to Iran, and the spread of Islam. Its porous maritime borders have for centuries invited migrants and traders from elsewhere.
It is a Muslim country with Shariah law governing the states and one of the most important and influential countries in the Middle East.
In the 18th century, Portugal and the Netherlands extended their holdings in the region but retreated with the growth of British naval power there; following a series of truces with Britain in the 19th century, the emirates united to form the Trucial States (also called Trucial Oman or the Trucial Sheikhdoms). The states gained autonomy following World War II (1939–45) when the trucial states of Bahrain and Qatar declared independent statehood.
Key facts about the UAE

The UAE national language is arabic and is spoken by all the idengenious population. With huge population of immigrants in the country Urdu/Hindi and Russain are widely spoken.
