Haq-meher, according to my knowledge, is the amount of money which the groom agrees to pay the wife. At the time of divorce, the husband MUST pay the haq-meher to which he promised to pay during the marriage. I hope I cleared it up a bit, otherwise Iam trying to find an article to give you a better understanding of what haq-meher really is.:)
Oh okey,we call it Mahr :)

The Arabic word for it must be different.
Its a gift as well as the amount of money that has to be given to the bride in case of a divorce. It can be a small amount or a large amount, it all depends on the financial situation of the groom.
Also, it would be rude and disrespectful to announce something so private to the public. So I doubt you'll find out how much royal brides or any Muslim bride gets. Such private matters are only known to the bride and groom and some of their family members.
Yea I thought it wasn't arabic,lol,well here it's called Al-Mahr المهر

Jordan's Queen Rania Al-Abdullah (R) talks to Bedouin women and children September 21, 2005, as she visits the remote village of Jaber, one of the kingdom's most impoverished areas where unemployment and poverty is rampant. The Queen also met with a number of the village women listening to their needs as they spoke of their suffering and the harsh reality of living in poverty. REUTERS/Naser Ayoub

Thank you for the pictures, Humera. It's nice to see that she's at work again now she's back from her trip, although she must be exhausted after such a hectic week.
