United Arab Emirates
The indigenous population, Sunni Muslim Arabs, is outnumbered by foreign-born workers, mostly from Asia, originally attracted by the petroleum boom.
Not long ago, the UAE was a land of desert inhabited by proud and resourceful nomadic Bedouin tribes, fishing villages and date farms. Abu Dhabi consisted of several hundred palm huts (barasti) huts, a few coral buildings and the Ruler's Fort. Situated along the creek, Dubai was a trading hub, providing a safe haven before the Straits of Hormuz and beyond. Life today in the Emirates bears little resemblance to that of 40 years ago.

What is Islam ?
Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. . Yet, unfortunately, Islam is also the most misunderstood religion.. The country with the largest Muslim population is Indonesia.
Islam refers to the religion; Muslim refers to those who practice the religion
There are five pillars of Islam which all Muslims must follow:
•Faith - •Prayer -•Charity - •Fasting - •Pilgrimage
Islam is a faith of positive action and a way of living as well as a belief system. Religion is an integral part of daily life for Muslims.
The Islamic holy day is Friday.
Regular call to prayer can be heard through loudspeakers on the top of the minarets of mosques throughout the communities. People may pray at a mosque but you will also see people at prayer in other locations or even at the side of the road. It is respectful not to stare and to walk politely around their prayer rugs. You must not walk directly in front of a praying person.
Muslims are required to pray five times daily.
While the U.A.E. is a Muslim country, they are very tolerant of other religions and a diverse range of churches and places of worship can be found.

The climate is changing. The earth is warming up, and there is now overwhelming scientific consensus that it is happening, and human-induced. With global warming on the increase and species and their habitats on the decrease, chances for ecosystems to adapt naturally are diminishing.
Many are agreed that climate change may be one of the greatest threats facing the planet. Recent years show increasing temperatures in various regions, and/or increasing extremities in weather patterns.
