King Abdullah signed the inauguration of the waqf during a ceremony attended by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, His Royal Highness Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad, His Majesty’s chief adviser for religious and cultural affairs and personal envoy, and Bahrain’s Minister of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Nawaf bin Muhammad Al Maawda, representing Bahrain King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

The event was also attended by the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf Council, members of the waqf council, a number of donors, and ambassadors of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation member states.

Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Sheikh Muhammad Hussein highlighted the important role of the King and the Hashemites towards Al Aqsa Mosque/Al Haram Al Sharif and the holy sites in Jerusalem, in line with the Hashemite Custodianship.
