Islamic Pilgrimage  

Jordan's strategic geographic position made it a starting point for Islam to spread. Here is where the dialogue between religions is happening; here is the home of the Amman Message of true Islam; and here is where a declaration for a culture of peace through tourism was demonstrated at the Peace Summit in November 2000.

Sites of Prophets and Companions of the Prophet Muhammad are pilgrimage destinations for people from all around the world. You might want to visit the Maqamat (holy shrines) and tombs of prophets and Companions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), as well as sites of Muslim historical events such as the battles of Muta', Yarmuk and the Seven Sleepers Cave.

The most famous holy shrines in Jordan are Prophet Shoaib, Prophet Nooh (Noah), Prophet Loot (Lot), Prophet Yusha' bin Noon (Joshua b. Nun) (Peace be upon them).

Also a visit to the most known tombs of the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) could be organized including Zeid ibn al-Haritha (the Prophet's adopted son and the only companion mentioned by name in the Qur'an); Ja'far bin Abi Talib (cousin of the Prophet and elder brother of Ali, who was the husband of the Prophet's daughter Fatima and the father of al-Hassan and al-Hussein); Abu 'Ubaydah 'Amer Ibn al-Jarrah (one of the "Blessed Ten" companions promised Paradise); Mu'ath bin Jabal (the Prophet's governor in Yemen); Shurhabil bin Husna (the Scribe of the Qur'anic Revelation), and Dirar bin al-Azwar (a great general). In fact, many more companions of the Prophet are buried in Jordan (May Allah be pleased with them).
