Kharabsheh, Amman: words of advice?

Its been an age since I last posted but I guess that was inevitable given the steady decline in my number of posts since starting this blog in March last year.

I’ve intended to visit the Sheikh since first seeing him at the UK Suhba in October 2011. Having seen flights on easy jet I have finally decided to put intentions into action.

Whilst I’ve read the publication giving further information on what to expect etc. i’m conscious that it was dated in 2002, some 10 years back.

Whilst the wisdom in it is timeless, the cost of staying in the men’s guesthouse (and stuff in general) is likely to cost considerably more now than in 2002.

Would a kind soul be prepared to update me on any of these essentials? i.e.:

1. approximate taxi fare from Queen Alia airport to Kharabsheh;

2. cost of the mens guestroom per night;

3. anything else that would be worthwhile to know that isn’t already covered in the 2002 publication.

I’ll let you know how I get on, in sha Allah.

    It will cost between 20-25 jd to get from airport to kharabsheh and staying at the guest house is 3jd per night.

    Ps if going in winter, take thermals as it gets extremely cold!

    Jazakum Allah khayran Sidi. I’m off at the end of Feb so will heed your advice. When did you go? I can’t believe the cost for the guest house is still so low!

    Salaam, have you emailed Sidi Ihab at [e-mail address removed by Shaykhspeare] ?
    Also, please could you tell me which publication, and guesthouse, you’re referring to?
    Thank you. Jazakum Allah khairan.
    May He bless your travels.

    Sayyida Zahra,

    Yes, and I soonafter received a comprehensive response answering my questions above.

    The publication is entitled ‘As A Rule’ and by the men’s guesthouse I was referring to what’s termed the “men’s sakan”.

    Jazakum Allah khayran for your kind wishes. Ameen.
