If one were to ask a dozen citizens of the U.A.E. what they considered their heritage it is likely that the answers would consistently include a number of common features linked to both the natural and the cultural environment. The fact that the Emirates are bounded by the Arabian Gulf, on the West, and the Arabian Sea, on the east, has given the inhabitants of the coasts a maritime orientation. Pearling, fishing and the songs that go with these activities, certainly form part of the country’s heritage. When one thinks of the desert Bedouin, on the other hand, Arab hospitality, coffee being pounded in a brass mortar, black tents, hunting with the saluqi dog and falcon, all spring to mind. The agriculturalists of the gravel plains and mountainous interior probably consider the date palm one of the most important parts of their heritage, for while the date nourishes humankind, the date stone can be used as animal fodder, the date fibre can be used to make rope, the fronds can be used to make palm frond houses (barasti), and so forth. And underlying all of these different features of Emirates life is Islam, the glue that binds together a nation. The Divine Revelation which arrived in the area in the 7th century A.D. continues to provide the foundation for civil institutions in a deeply spiritual country. If the unique natural environment of the U.A.E. sets the country apart from its neighbours, Islam provides the ties that bind it to the rest of the Arab nation.
