Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid al-Nuaimi (Arabic: شيخ حميد بن راشد النعيمي‎) (born 1931), succeeded his father Shaikh Rashid and became the emir of Ajmān (one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates federation) in 1981 and he is the current emir of Ajmān.[1] Under his reign, the state saw rapid changes from a small fishing town at the time of independence to a modern emirate.

He received his early education in Dubai in the 1940s and 1950s and later went to Cairo for further studies. In the early 1970s he became active in the affairs of state, as Ajman joined the United Arab Emirates in December 1971 and he was required to act as a deputy ruler. His elder brother Shaikh Ali was sidelined in the process. He belongs to the Al Nuaim tribe.

His children include:

  • Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince and President of the Executive Board.
  • Sheikh Ahmed bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Economic Department.
  • Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Department of Culture and Information.
  • Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Ajman Municipality and Planning and Chief of R Holding.
