  Emir - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Emir (Arabic: Arabic: أمير‎ ​;; ʾamīrun, "commander" or "general", later also "prince"; also transliterated as amir or ameer) is a high title of nobility or office, historically used in Islamic nations of the Middle East, North Africa, Asia Minor, and the Turkic world, among others.
Emir is also the title of the religious leader (without political power) of the Ahmadiyya anjuman ishaat-i Islam, a minor Muslim sect, established in Lahore in April 1914, with five incumbents to date.
The word Emir is also used less formally for leaders in certain contexts, for example the leader of a group of pilgrims to Mecca is called an emir hadji, a style sometimes used by ruling princes (as a mark of Muslim piety), sometimes awarded in their name.
