The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was part of the Turkish empire until 1918. It became independent from Britain in 1946, and today Jordan is a Constitutional monarchy with King Hussein having executive powers.
Islam is the state religion, but the constitution prohibits discrimination and promotes the free exercise of religious belief and worship, while prohibiting religious change for Muslims.
The Gulf War led to deep questioning of the relevance and truth of Islam. There has been unprecedented openness among Jordanians and refugees (both Palestinian and Asian) which has led to conversions to Christ.
