Is the Umrah of equal importance to the Hadj which takes place over the next 3 months after Ramadaan? I thought it was a spiritual holiday. Just asking.

Sorry this is abit off topic, but just to answer the question that was asked
Umrah & haj are just as important as the other, they both have to be carried out at least once if you can afford.

With Haj, a muslim has more to do than umrah. Its a longer process.

Wikipedia has a very good article on what is haj & what is required etc found here & you can find more about umrah here

Actually that's incorrect.

Umrah is not mandatory, Hajj is the only mandatory pilgrimage for every muslim man, woman and child.

Does anybody have anymore information on this conference Rania is hosting?

ALPINE — A Utah-based start-up humanitarian organization that describes its mission as "techno-philanthropy" has attracted the attention of the United Nations.

The Digital Alliance Foundation aims to provide technological hardware, such as computers, and technology education, such as training on how to use spreadsheet software, to people in developing countries.................

At the end of the month, they will head to Jordan for a conference organized by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Queen Rania Al Abdullah. Quinn Sutton will present a paper on bridging the digital divide through public and private partnerships.

Anyone know what the king and queen are up to this week? Any trips planned?

Seems I can answer my own question. The King has gone to London today. Anyone know if Rania is with him? Petra news mentions only him.

Rania will be in the US next Tuesday (23rd, for the Women's Conference) so we may see her once before then. I'm assuming that she will have other events lined up and not just this conference.

I expect that she's relaxing after Eid with family and friends. It usually says when she has gone to London with King, so I think it was just a solo trip.

Oslo, Oct. 16 (Petra)—Norwegian King Harald V hailed efforts and keenness of His Majesty King Abdullah II to develop Jordan, achieve peace in the Middle East and spread the message and values of Islam in the world.

I know that Abdullah and Rania made a visit to Norway early in their reign (cannot remember if it was a state visit). It would be great to see the Norwegian royals return the trip!
