Tarfa Obeidat, an 83-year-old grandmother affectionately known as Umm Muhannad, nestled in the town of Hartha in Irbid, felt compelled to extend a spontaneous invitation to Crown Prince Hussein to deliver her heartfelt congratulations.

In a display of love, Umm Muhannad presented the Crown Prince with a meticulously hand-knitted red Shemagh embellished with ornamental edges. This traditional headdress, symbolizing Jordanian pride, carries immense significance. Typically, mothers painstakingly adorn it to present to their sons on special occasions. In Umm Muhannad's gesture is a profound message: "You are our son and source of pride."

The Crown Prince's fellow brothers-in-arms within the military unit he serves organized a joyous celebration to mark the occasion. The 40th King Hussein bin Talal Royal Armored Brigade’s personnel, of the Central Military Region, orchestrated an evening filled with captivating folk dances, melodic songs, tug of war games and other activities.

Expressing his gratitude, the Crown Prince took to Instagram, acknowledging the warm welcome and the beautiful Shemagh gifted by the gracious women of Irbid and the celebrations with his brothers in arms.

Brimming with excitement and happiness, Jordanians are expressing their boundless joy and unwavering affection for a Royal Family that feels as intimately connected to them as their own parents, children, and siblings.
