Itinerary

 

Day 1:  Amman Airport - Amman

Our representative will meet you upon arrival at Amman Airport and assist with your visa to Jordan.  After, continue to Amman for dinner and overnight.

 

Day 2:  Amman - King Abdullah Mosque - Ajloun - Cave of 7 Sleepers -  Mt. Nebo - Amman

After breakfast at the hotel then we will visit King Abdullah Mosque and then to Ajloun to explore Ajloun castle, which was built by Izz al-Din Usama, a commander and nephew of Salah ad-Din al-Ayyubi (Saladin), in AD 1184-1185. The fortress is considered one of the very few built to protect the country against Crusader attacks from Kerak in the south and Bisan in the west. From its situation, the fortress dominated a wide stretch of the northern Jordan Valley, controlled the three main passages that led to it (Wadi Kufranjah, Wadi Rajeb and Wadi al-Yabes), and protected the communication routes between south Jordan and Syria. It was built to contain the progress of the Latin Kingdom of Transjordan and as a retort to the castle of Belvoir a few miles south of the lake of Tiberias. Another major objective of the fortress was to protect the development and control of the iron mines of Ajloun.  

 

 

Next we continue to Kahf Al-Raqeem or The Cave of The Seven Sleepers. Mentioned in the Holy Qur'an in a Sura named Al-Kahf (the Cave), it is located outside the village of Al-Raqeem, 10 km east of Amman. Persecuted by despotic rule of Trajan for monotheism, a group of pious youths took refuge in this cave. To preserve them, Allah  put them to sleep, and when they revived 300 years later (309 lunar years as inimitability mentioned in the Holy Qur'an), they thought that they were only asleep for a day or so. Christianity was widespread by then, and when they were discovered, Allah  put them to rest forever. At the cave, there still stand Byzantine and Roman ruins as well as a mosque, which exactly fit the descriptions in the Holy Qur'an.   

 

Then continue to visit Mount Nebo one of the most revered sites in Jordan. Here you have a magnificent view of the Dead Sea, a panorama of mountains, and the crowning heights of Jerusalem are visible in the distance. On the summit of Mount Nebo, you stand where the Prophet Musa 'Moses'  looked over the Jordan River towards PalestineMount Nebo also became his final resting place after leading his people from Egypt across the Sinai Desert towards the Promised Land. Allah  spoke directly to Moses  who then gave his people the divinely revealed laws. It is generally acknowledged that Prophet Moses  was buried on Mount Nebo, although there is no actual tomb marking the spot. The Holy Qur'an describes in detail the life and mission of Prophet Moses. In fact, Prophet Moses is the most mentioned prophet in the Holy Qur'an. At the end of the day, we drive back to Amman for dinner and overnight in 3* hotel. 

  

 

Day 3:  Amman - Salt - Sahabbab Shrines - Dead Sea

Repeatedly he preached to his people about monotheism and to abandon their corrupt practices such as under-weighing and under-measuring the commodities they sold.

 

Within a mosque to the west of Salt, on a hill carrying his name lies the shrine of Prophet Yusha' Joshua’. He was the apprentice of Prophet Moses  and later his successor. Prophet Joshua  led the army of the tribes of Israel in conquest over the land of Palestine.
