Jordan’s King Abdullah II thanked the various entities that participated in putting out a fire in the area of Kamaliyya on the outskirts of the capital Amman, a green mountain range with a spring weather and heavy air, located along the edges of the royal palace.
King Abdullah tweeted on Sunday: “By the grace of the brave of all the military and civil devices, the fire of Kamalism was extinguished yesterday, thank you for all the efforts that they have made, God save you and save Jordan.”
A video showing King Abdullah close to the trees rescued from the fire circulated social media sites, with a large number of young people witnessed fighting the fire that broke out in the forested area.

“A waqf (Arabic: وقف), also known as habous or mortmain property, is an inalienable charitable endowment under Islamic law, which typically involves donating a building, plot of land or other assets for Muslim religious or charitable purposes with no intention of reclaiming the assets. The donated assets may be held by a charitable trust. The person making such dedication is known as waqif, a donor.” (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waqf). I have to ask. Is someone giving up some land in Jerusalem to someone in Jordan?
The iftar banquet was the evening meal prior to the evening call to prayer tasty breaks the daily fast during Ramadan. “iftar. /ˈɪftɑː/ noun. the meal eaten by Muslims to break their fast after sunset every day during Ramadan. from Arabic iftar the breaking of the fast; compare Id-ul-Fitr.” (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/iftar)
He then celebrated Fathers Day, just like a good Westerner does.
