An emirate is a political territory that is ruled by a dynastic Muslim Monarch styled emir.An emirate is also a tower, which calls Muslims to the traditional Jumu'ah on Fridays. Although it is more widely known as a minaret (Turkish: minare,[1] from Arabic manāra (lighthouse) منارة, usually مئذنة)


Etymologically emirate or amirate ( , Imaarah ; plural: إمارات, Imaraat) is the quality, dignity, office or territorial competence of any emir (prince, governor etc.).

As monarchies

The United Arab Emiratesmarker is a federal state that comprises seven federal emirates, each administered by a hereditary emir, these seven forming the electoral college for the federation's President and Prime Minister. As most emirates have either disappeared, been integrated in a larger modern state or changed their rulers' styles, e.g. to Malik (Arabic for King) or Sultan, such true emirate-states have become rare.

As provinces

Furthermore, in Arabic the term can be generalized to mean any province of a country that is administered by a member of the ruling class, especially of a member (usually styled emir) of the royal family, as in Saudi Arabianmarker governorates.
