Jordan's King Abdullah calls to restore fire-hit Al Husseini Mosque
Furniture, equipment, and carpets to be provided for historical Amman structure, also known as Grand Husseini Mosque
Jordan’s King Abdullah II bin Al-Husseini has ordered the restoration of Al Husseini Mosque — also referred to as Grand Husseini Mosque — in Amman, after the second floor of the mosque was engulfed by a fire last week.
State news agency Petra reported that the King had also ordered the provision of furniture, equipment, and carpets for the mosque, which was built in 1924.
Kind Abdullah directed the country’s Royal Court of Chief, Youssef Issawi, to oversee the restoration and maintenance of the mosque to its original Islamic architectural designs.
A Jordan Times report quoting the country’s Civil Defence Department (CDD) stated that the fire incident did not result in any injuries.
