The direct descendant of Prophet Mohammed, the one who tore apart ISIS, the King of Islamic country Jordan – King Abdullah II makes his visit to India! Why it is important?

“Shah Abdullah II” of Jordan is the one name which is widely respected among the Muslim community around the world. He is known to be a direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad himself. Apart from this, he is also considered to be a symbol of modernity.

King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein, who arrived on Tuesday on a three-day visit, was accorded a grand welcome with Prime Minister Narendra Modi receiving him at the airport, in a special gesture.
Modi tweeted:

Welcomed His Majesty King Abdullah II to Delhi. It’s wonderful to meet him again, after my brief halt at Amman earlier this month. His visit to India will further deepen bilateral ties between our nations. I look forward to our talks on Thursday.

The prime minister and the king will hold extensive talks covering entire expanse of bilateral ties, official sources said adding, the Palestinian issue and ways to deal with terrorism, radicalization and extremism are likely to figure prominently in the deliberations.

In many parts of the world, there are frequent debates about the hijab and burqas, but it is surprising to watch that this is not practiced in the royal family of King Abdullah II! What on earth allowed them to not wear the hijab and burqa? His wife and daughter do not use hijab or the burqa. A photo of the royal family is going viral on Twitter. In which you can see Shah Abdullah posing along with his family.

This is King Abdullah II, the King of Jordan. He is the direct descendant of Prophet Mohammad, and this is his family. The question is, what on earth happened to wearing the Hijab and Burqa? …..

The education of the Shah of Jordan has happened in western culture. He has graduated from the British University and is married to an American woman. He runs Harley Davidson. He is one of the finest examples of what Muslim nations should do. Iran is also ready to change.

“Very beautiful women in his family. I guess they’re exempt from all that. I’m happy for them, but of course I wish all women had the same freedom to choose without being harassed or jailed or abused for it”- another tweet said.

The king is known for his global initiative to fight radicalization and terrorism. He is also the custodian of the Al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, located in the Old City of Jerusalem.

India considers Jordan an “oasis of stability and harmony” in conflict-ridden West Asia and New Delhi would like to deepen bilateral ties with the country during the king’s visit, official sources said. Both sides will also look to finalize a framework for defence cooperation, they said.

The sources said both sides are expected to ink a number of agreements to expand cooperation in several key sectors including healthcare, IT, customs and will look to firm up a framework pact for defence and security cooperation. In their talks, Modi and the king are also likely to explore ways of deepening trade ties. Twenty textile industries from India have invested around $ 300 million in Jordan.

Abdullah II bin Al, has been King of Jordan since the 1999 death of his father, King Hussein. According to Abdullah, he is a 41st-generation direct descendant of Muhammad as he belongs to the Hashemite families-who have ruled Jordan since 1921. The Hashemite family tree of HRH Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II shows the lineage from of the Arab chieftain Quraysh, a descendant of the Prophet

Ismail, himself the son of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham). His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II is the 42nd-generation direct descendant of “Prophet Mohammad”. His Royal Highness is the eldest son of Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah.

The Hashemites, or “Bani Hashem,” are descendants of the Arab chieftain Quraysh, a descendant of the Prophet Ismail, himself the son of the Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham). Quraysh first came to the holy city of Mecca during the second century CE. The first generation of Quraysh to rule the city came six generations later, when Qusayy bin Kilab ascended to the leadership of Mecca in the year 480 CE. The name “Hashem” is actually that of Qusayy’s grandson, who was the great-grandfather of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
