About Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah

Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah (Arabic: الشيخ صباح الأحمد الجابر الصباح‎; 16 June 1929 – 30 September 2020) was the 15th Ruler of Kuwait and the 6th Emir of the State of Kuwait and the Commander of the Kuwait Military Forces from 29 January 2006 until his death. He was the fourth son of Sheikh Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.


After months of hospitalization in Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Sabah died on 29 September 2020 at 08:00 CDT (16:00 Kuwaiti Time) at the age of 91 due to long-term health issues. The Kuwaiti government declared 40 days of mourning. Kuwaiti Television and Radio broke normal programming on that day and broadcast Recitation of the Qur'anic Verses before Sheikh Ali Al-Jarrah Al-Sabah, Minister of the Amiri Diwani Affairs, appeared at 16:48, formally announcing the Emir's passing. Sheikh Sabah's half brother, the crown prince of Kuwait, Sheikh Nawaf, was announced as the Emir of Kuwait. Al-Sabah was buried at Sulaibikhat cemetery alongside his family.
