The nation looked radiant in green garment

A garden bloomed with their flares.

The blowing wind and the bare desert

Are with the beauty of roses adorned.

Why not? It is celebrating the wedding

Of Ahmad, Maktoum and Hamdan.

Today, my effort continues in your marriage.

For marriage completes faith and regard.

I congratulate you from all my heart

And here’s a genuine parental advice,

Be united, always,

That’s how life thrives with power.
