Al Nasla is a settlement in Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is situated in the Wadi Qor below Rafaq.[1]

The mosque at Al Nasla, alongside 40 modern houses were built on order of Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum. A remote community increasingly deserted by young people moving to the UAE's cities, Al Nasla's mostly deserted houses come alive during Eid, when family members return to the village.[2]

Sheikh Rashid's son, Sheikh Mohammed, visited the village during a tour of the mountain areas in 2008.[3]

Al Nasla Fort

An Islamic era (19th century) fort at Al Nasla has recently been restored.
