Bilal Al-Habashi - THE MUEZZIN OF THE PROPHET:
His name is Bilâl ibn Rabâh better known as Bilâl Al-Habashî. Her mother, Hamâmah, was an Ethiopian slave. He converted to Islam while a slave to Umayyah Ibn Khalaf. The latter resolved to torture him until he renounced Islam or died. He made him lie on his back on the hot sands of the Meccan desert and had a huge boulder rest on his chest. Then Umayyah asked him to renounce Islam and return to polytheism. Bilâl replied: "Ahadun Ahad" ("God is One, God is One").

Mount Nebo:
Mount Nebo is located about 47 km from Amman and 10km from Madaba. It is believed to be the place where Moses lived out his remaining days and viewed as the Promised Land.
Mount Nebo offers a fantastic view of the Dead Sea, the West Bank, Jericho, the Jordan River, and on a clear day Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
According to Christian and Islamic beliefs, Moses was buried somewhere in the mountain, although the exact place of burial is not specified.

Mukawir:
It is the hilltop stronghold of Herod the Great, located 73 km from Amman and 25 km southeast of the mouth of the Jordan River on the eastern side of the Dead Sea.
Mukawir stands about 1,100 meters above Dead Sea level, and it is surrounded on all sides by deep ravines which provide great natural strength for the stronghold. The palace was built in the center of the fortified area. Upon Herod’s death, his son Herod Antipas inherited the fortress and it’s from here that he ordered John the Baptist to be beheaded after Salome’s fateful dance of the seven veils.
From there you can see the surrounding countryside, the Dead Sea, and the West Bank.

Kerak Castle:
Whether you approach Karak from the ancient Kings Highway to the east or from the Dead Sea to the west, the striking silhouette of this fortified town and castle will instantly make you understand why the fates of kings and nations were decided here for millennia.
The town is built on a triangular plateau, with the castle at its narrow southern tip. The castle is some 220m long, 125m wide at the north end, and 40m wide at the southern end where a narrow valley deepened by a ditch separates it from the adjoining and a much higher hill – once Saladin's favorite artillery position. Throughout the castle, dark and roughly-shaped crusader masonry is easy to discern from the finely-crafted blocks of lighter and softer limestone used in later Arab work.

Al Mazar:
Zayd Ibn Harithah: or Zayd Mawla Muhammad was a prominent figure in the early Islamic community and the only one of sahaba whose name appears in the Qur’an (33:37). He was the adopted son of the Prophet (Sallallahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam). He was the 1st leader who killed during the battle.

Ja‘far Ibn Abī Tālib: (Died 629), also known as Ja‘far At-Tayyār, was the son of Abu Talib Ibn ‘Abdul Muttalib (the uncle of Prophet (Sallallahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam), and the elder brother of the fourth Islam caliph, Ali Ibn Abi Talib. Jafar was raised by his uncle, Abbas Ibn ‘Abdul Muttalib, for his father was a poor man and had to support a big family. He embraced Islam around 613. He appointed Zayd Ibn Harithah as commander of the army and he was subsequently killed during the battle.

Abdullah Ibn Rawahah Ibn Tha‘labah: was one of the companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), He was one of the twelve representatives of the Ansar who took an oath of allegiance initially, before the Hijra and later spread Islam to Medina.

Petra:
The giant red mountains and vast mausoleums of a departed race have nothing in common with modern civilization and ask nothing of it except to be appreciated at their true value - as one of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man.
Although much has been written about Petra, nothing really prepares you for this amazing place. It has to be seen to be believed.

Petra the world wonder, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is without a doubt Jordan's most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago. Their presence turned it into an important junction for the silk, spice, and other trade routes that linked China, India, and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece, and Rome.

Petra seems to be mentioned in the Old Testament under different names, such as Sela and Joktheel (2 Kings 14: 7).

During the Exodus, Moses and the Israelites passed through the region from Petra to Edom. According to local tradition, the source of Wadi Musa (Valley of Moses), at the exit of Petra, corresponds to the place where Moses struck the rock to make water gush out (Numbers 20: 10-11).
Aaron, the brother of Moses and Miriam, died in Jordan and was buried in Petra on Mount Hor, renamed "Jabal Harun" in Arabic (Mount Aaron). A Byzantine church, then an Islamic shrine dedicated to Aaron, was built on top of the mountain. Today they attract pilgrims from all over the world.
Petra was certainly the last relay of the three kings who brought frankincense, gold and myrrh to celebrate the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem (Matthew 2: 1-12).

It is believed that Little Petra was an important suburb of Petra, the entry and exit point for the trade routes to the north and north-west. Here the caravans from the Negev, Gaza, Jerusalem, Egypt, and the Mediterranean coast arrived, had a rest, and engaged in trade. Like in Petra buildings had been carved into the sandstone, used as residences, storages and tombs along with water channels and cisterns.
