SMCCU’s Rashid Ahmed Al Tamimi shares his love for Dubai

My Al Fahidi

What's On (Dubai) - - LOCAL KNOWLEDGE -

I am Emi­rati and have been in Dubai all my life. Dubai is an amaz­ing city and a very unique place to grow up and live. Un­der the guid­ance of our lead­ers we have gone from a small fish­ing vil­lage (01) to a cos­mopoli­tan city where many na­tion­al­i­ties live side by side. Al Fahidi is part of our his­tory, and a charm­ing area to visit with its unique ar­chi­tec­ture. You can ex­plore the nar­row al­ley­ways, wind tow­ers (02) and court­yards of the houses of the past. Al Fahidi is also home to the Sheikh Mo­hammed Cen­tre For Cul­tural Un­der­stand­ing (03) (SMCCU), where we have var­i­ous ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing our Open Doors Open Minds (04) pro­gramme where guests can join us, learn about Al Fahidi and a time gone by. I am a very so­cial per­son so SMCCU pro­vides me the same op­por­tu­nity in my work to en­gage with our guests from many dif­fer­ent back­grounds ev­ery day, which I love. It gives me great pride to be part of the SMCCU team, mak­ing friends with our guests from across the globe and shar­ing my cul­ture and re­li­gion. Dur­ing our guided tours, we visit the Di­wan Mosque (05), which I still find so im­pres­sive. I’d also highly rec­om­mend try­ing out Ara­bian Tea House (06) for a bite to eat, and for a taste of cul­ture, you should visit AlSerkal Cul­tural Foun­da­tion (07) – which is one of the old­est her­itage sites in Dubai. It would be an hon­our to share my favourite area of Dubai, my cul­ture, and re­li­gion with you at SMCCU.
