I'd start with:

sudo mount -o uid="$LOGNAME" /dev/sdh1 /media/mostafa/flash_h1

(Except I would actually just type out my login name because that's
easier than "$LOGNAME".)

Once you get it working from the command line, THEN you can try to
figure out how to put that into /etc/fstab.  I don't know how "user"
and "uid=" are going to collide, so good luck with that.
