-Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah Arabic: أبو عبيدة عامر بن عبدالله بن الجراح), more commonly known as Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah, was one of the ten companions of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) who were promised Paradise . He remained commander of a large section of Muslim armies during the time of Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab and was on the list of Umar’s appointed successors to the Caliphate. Abu Ubaydah was one of the first persons to accept Islam. He became a Muslim one day after Abu Bakr. Who was the man whose right hand the Prophet (PBUH) held and said, `In every nation there exists a man worthy of all trust and the trustworthy of this nation is Abu `Ubaidah lbn Al- Jarraah.” Who was the man whom the Prophet sent with reinforcements to `Amr Ibn Al-’Aas in the Dhaat As-Salaasil Expedition and made commander of the army that included `Umar and Abu Bakr? Who was this Companion who was the first to be called the Commander of the Commanders? Who was that tall, slim man with gaunt face? Who was that strong, trustworthy man about whom `Umar lbn Al Khattaab said on his deathbed, “If Abu `Ubaidah Ibn Al-Jarraah were alive, I would have entrusted him with the caliphate, and if Allah asked me about him, I would say, I assigned the caliphate to the trustworthy of Allah and His Prophet, Abu `Ubaidah Ibn Al Jarraah, When the Prophet died, Abu Ubeida was among the candidates for the Caliphate. He believed Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq was to lead the Muslims and become Caliph because Prophet Mohammad had asked him to lead prayers Upon his death; Abu Ubeida thus managed to avoid insurrection and disunity amongst Muslims. At the age of 58, he fell victim to the Great Plague that spread through Greater Syria. In the central Jordan Valley, his tomb is a major Islamic center with a mosque, library, and a cultural center, The Trustworthy of This Nation died in the land which he had purified from the paganism of the Persians and the oppression of the Romans. Today in Jordan lie his noble in the central Jordan Valley, died in 639 C.E

-Mu`ath Bin Jabal Arabic: معاذ بن جبل), was a young boy when Mohammad   started preaching the message of Islam. He was a native of Medina and was there during most of Mohammad’s  lifetime. He was noted for his intelligence, quick wit, potency in speech, and for his prominent standing between people. He was also described as a very attractive looking individual with dark eyes and eyelashes. His teeth were extremely white and he had an afro. Books referring to his physical appearance say that the onlooker would be stunned by his good looks; He became a Muslim at the hands of Musab bin Umair, Wherever Muath went, people would refer to him for legal judgments on matters over which they differed. This is not strange since he was brought up in the school of the Prophet himself and learnt as much as he could from him. He was the best pupil of the best teacher. His knowledge bore the stamp of authenticity. The best certificate that he could have received came from the Prophet himself when he said: “The most knowledgeable of my ummah in matters of Halal and haram is Muadh ibn Jabal.” One of the greatest of Muaths contributions to the Moslems was that he was one of the group of six who collected the Quran during the lifetime of the Prophet, peace be upon him, When Muath fell ill with an infectious disease & he was near to death, he turned in the direction of the Kabah and repeated this refrain: “Welcome Death, Welcome. A visitor has come after a long absence . . .” And looking up to heaven, he said: “O Lord, You know that I did not desire the world and to prolong my stay in it . . . O Lord, accept my soul with goodness as you would accept a believing soul…” He died at the age of 38 in the Jordan Valley

 

-Shurahbil ibn Hasanah The venerable companion Shurahbil ibn Hasanah was among the early Muslims who fled to Abyssinia. He was reputed for his strong faith, intelligence, bravery and successful administration. Shurahbil actively participated in the Battle of Yarmouk and the conquest of Jerusalem. When the Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq sent the Muslim armies to Greater Syria, Shurahbil was in command of the army assigned to the conquest of Jordan. Later, the Caliph Omar ibn Al-Khattab appointed Shurahbil the governor of a province in Greater Syria, where he distinguished himself for his fair dealings with subordinates. He died from the plague on the same day as the venerable companion Abu Ubeida Amer ibn Al-Jarrah.

-Amir ibn Abi Waqqas The venerable companion Amir ibn Abi Waqqas was the maternal cousin of the Prophet and the 11th man to convert to Islam. He was devoted to his faith, although his mother Himnah, daughter of Abi Sufyan ibn Harb ibn Umayyah, swore to stay out in the burning sun until he renounces Islam. He migrated to Abyssinia and fought in the Battle of Uhud and was later entrusted with carrying messages from the commanders of the Muslim army to the Caliph in Medina. Furthermore, he was the deputy of the venerable companion Abu Ubeida in his governorship of the military district of Syria. You can visit his tomb located inside a new building erected on vaults, within the village of Waqqas in the northern Jordan valley.

-Derar ibn Al-Azwar The venerable companion Derar ibn Al-Azwar was a poet and a fierce warrior who loved combat. He fought in the wars of Apostasy and took part in the conquest of Greater Syria along with his distinguished sister Khawlah bint Al-Azwar. In the town of Deir Alla a mosque superimposed by a dome houses the tomb of Dirar ibn Al-Azwar. The 18th year after Hijra was when he, too, became a victim of the Great Plague.

 

 

Then we drive to the city of Madaba to visit Mount Nebo, On the top of Mount Nebo, the Prophet Musa ‘Moses’  looked over the Jordan River towards Palestine; it is generally acknowledged that Prophet Moses   was buried on Mount Nebo, although there is no actual tomb marking the spot. The Holy Qur’an describes in detail the life and mission of Prophet Moses      . In fact, Prophet Moses       is the most mentioned prophet in the Holy Qur’an. After that , we drive to the Shrine of Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist), was the son of the prophet Zechariah       and thus also the cousin of the blessed Virgin Mary. His birth itself was miraculous because his parents were too old to have children at the time, but were granted one in response to his father’s prayers to Allah       to grant him a son that would carry on his work (of preaching). Yahya       was a pious, ascetic son, and was inspired with the scripture and went about the land preaching the word of God, and foretelling the imminent advent of the Messiah. When consulted by King Herod Antipas as to the illicitness of the latter’s marriage, he refused to declare it legal, and was eventually murdered for this, at the instigation of Salome, in Herod’s citadel at Mukawir / Machaerus. Albeit his head was taken and buried in what is now the Umayyad mosque in Damascus, while his body remained and buried in Mukawir.
