Crown Prince checks on Al Husseini Mosque renovation project

His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II on Wednesday checked on the renovation project of Al Husseini Mosque in downtown Amman, which was completed in line with His Majesty King Abdullah’s directives in the aftermath of a fire that broke out in the mosque in 2019.
The historical mosque’s renovation works included a new pulpit, as well as a number of wood and mosaic facades, designed and executed by teams from Balqa Applied University, in coordination with the follow up committee on the implementation of Royal directives.
Crown Prince Al Hussein was briefed by Awqaf Minister Mohammad Khalaileh on the mosque’s historical significance, as the first urban project in the capital when it was rebuilt during the reign of King Abdullah I ibn Al Hussein in 1923.
The mosque was named after the leader of the Great Arab Revolt, Sharif Hussein bin Ali, and its actual structure dates back to the reign of Islamic Caliph Omar ibn Al Khattab.
Royal Hashemite Court Chief Yousef Issawi and RHC Imam Ahmad Khalaileh accompanied His Royal Highness on the visit.
