Cultural Heritage Of Spain - Al-Hamra On Pakistan's FDC

A nice philatelic cover to share with all of you. 
It is a magnificent stamp and First Day Cover issued by Pakistan Post to commemorate "Islamic Cultural Heritage". The stamp and FDC were issued on 14 December 1992.
  Interestingly, the spellings of Al-Hamra are different on the stamp and the envelope. On the envelope it is spelled as "Al-Hamra" whereas on the stamp it says "Alhambra". Which ones are correct? Only a Spanish friend can help, I believe!
  The picture on the cover also shows a mosque with the following words written inside (It is probably the monogram for World Muslim Congress as written below too):-
  The stamp is postmarked from Philatelic Bureau Peshawar, which is the closest philatelic bureau to Pak-Afghan Border in North, where all the fighting is underway on one pretext or the other.
