In the photo, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid showed that the spirit imbibed by the holy season is made felt in his home.

In another photo, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan depicted how he celebrates Ramadan.

Meanwhile, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, received a large number of Sheikhs, top government officials and citizens on May 22, Tuesday, on the occasion of Ramadan.

The attendees included Sheikh Saeed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Ruler’s Representative; H.H. Sheikh Nahyan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation; and H.H. Lt. General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior.
