    The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship makes a noble and meaningful gesture by presenting the Souvenir of “Amentak Beladak” to 2019 new-born babies. “Amentak Beladak” is an initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. ICA presents the “Souvenir” on issuing the birth certificates and adding new-born babies to the family book. It is a classy gesture, which emphasizes maintaining the supreme directives aiming at instilling the values of belonging and loyalty to the homeland in the hearts of UAE citizens.  

    The Souvenir which bears the photo of the founder father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, reminds us of his values and legacy, on which the principles and rules of UAE are based. Among these principles and rules, dedication to work, giving, love, coexistence and tolerance. 

    The Souvenir conveys a message of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed to the generations to remind them of the greatness of the mission they are entrusted with, i.e. preserving this precious homeland. It is a great and noble mission entrusted not only to the armed forces, the police and the security forces, but also to every UAE citizen. It takes many forms of diligence and hardworking in study and excellence, as well as dedication, sacrifice and maintaining social ties and national cohesion, and enhancing UAE position and image in every field and area.

    This noble gesture reflects the keen of our wise leadership on being near to its citizens in a happy occasion like the happy event of receiving a new-born baby who joins the large family; the Family of “Zayed Sons”. Besides, this initiative marks his vision about building generations and instilling the love of, loyalty and belonging to this precious homeland. This initiative comes in line with his instructions to introduce the moral education in UAE curricula to protect children and create generations able to preserve the bright image of UAE and its high standing. This can be achieved by preserving its established values and moral principles.

    We all remembered HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed’s call to the future generations to preserve UAE name, when he reminded us that when a citizen makes a positive action, it will be said that it has been made by an “Emirati” citizen, and if he/she makes a negative action, it will be said that it has been made by an “Emirati” citizen. Therefore, we have to remember these noble words and their indications before we take any action even if we consider simple especially that some people are waiting for any opportunity to exploit any unintentional mistake or misconduct to ruin UAE name.
