Referring to Sheikh Dr Sultan as his brother, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, tweeted:“He is a university for science and culture. God bless Sheikh Dr Sultan for his family and people.”

Under Sheikh Dr Sultan's visionary leadership, Sharjah has witnessed a renaissance, progress and prosperity in all areas over the past 50 years.
