 And the other UMRA had several mentions on Toady this morning !
As was yesterday, McT says there is only *one* umra!
I think the other one is usually spelt (or perhaps I should say
"rendered into our alphabet", since I think it's a word from a language
that uses a different alphabet) with a final h, i. e. umrah; however,
you can't always hear that in speech - though I've always thought of
(our) UMRA as having a short -a like agenda (or as in UMRAt), whereas
I'd pronounce umrah with a long a as in car.
