The Ezzain Saqlawiyah

Moniet Ezzain by Salaa el Dine out of NK Momtaza, secures the place of reverence that we have for her dam, NK Momtaza, as one of the most influential mares in the Ezzain breeding program. She has produced three daughters for the breeding program, the full sisters, Nasseyrah Ezzain and Omneyah Ezzain, both by Nooreddine and the up-and-coming filly, Najeiah Ezzain by NK Qaswarah. Her daughters, Nasseyrah and Omneyah are spreading the influence of the Momtaza family further into the future with their progeny. Nasseyrah has produced two daughters, Mardeiah by Aneesilnefous and Hhawra by Yaasoob. It is important to say that Mardeiah is a pure-in-the-strain Saqlawiyah, as both her sire and dam trace to Momtaza in the tail female line. Omneyah produced  a spectacular filly named Amaani Ezzain by NK Qaswarah. This beautiful mare, Moniet Ezzain, physically embodies the very essence that defines Saqlawi type in the authentic Arabian horse.

Reference Sire: NK Hafid Jamil

Without NK Hafid Jamil, there would be no Ezzain super horse. This elegant and refined son of Ibn Nejdy (out of the Salaa el Dine daughter, Helala) is the most crucially important cornerstone of the Ezzain breeding program. In the beginning, Usamah Alkazemi purchased NK Jurie, who was the first foal sired by NK Hafid Jamil.  The more Usamah saw NK Jurie, the more he felt that the cross of NK Hafid Jamil and NK Nariman produced the type of Arabian horse that he wanted.
He made it a priority to purchase all of the offspring produced by these two horses, including NK Qaswarah, who would eventually become the chief sire of Ezzain and the primary way in which the influence of NK Hafid Jamil is felt at Ezzain. The current program features six Qaswarah sons and fifteen daughters. While NK Qaswarah represents NK Hafid Jamil through the sire line; Ezzain also has three daughters Dhuha AlNakeeb, Jenan AlNakeeb and the mare that started it all, NK Jurie. With 37 of the current 45 horses influenced by NK Hafid Jamil, one immediately recognizes the significance that this stallion represents for Ezzain.
