Prince Hashem Gets Married

Prince Hashem on Saturday welcomes guests to the Royal Court, where King Abdullah hosted lunch for tribal and refugee camp leaders, journalists, diplomats, senior officials and officers in celebration of Prince Hashem’s marriage to Princess Fahdah, daughter of Sheikh Mohammad Ben Ibrahim Ben Suleiman Abu Niyyan. The Monarch and other Royal family members also welcomed guests from Saudi Arabia and Oman. A captain in the Jordan Arab Army’s 3rd Royal Rangers Battalion, Prince Hashem, born in 1981, obtained last year his undergraduate degree in comparative studies from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Services



  • Hi Nas,

    Best wishes to Prince Hashem and the Princess Fahdah!

    I’m an American reader of your blog. As someone who enjoys The Onion, I thought you might like the following:

  • Every time I hear any news about Prince Hashem I remember this funny story… I went to Georgetown University a few years ago to attend a book signing by Queen Noor for her new book, she apparently scheduled it during “Parents Weekend” at the university b/c her son (Hashem) goes there. I met my friend (an Arab) who goes there, and after we left with our autographed books. We passed by her other friend (not Arab) who was asking us what the book signing was about. We told her it was Queen Noor, Hashem’s mother. She didn’t get it. We told her, “Hashem, you know, he’s the son of King Hussein, the king of Jordan, he’s a prince.” Her jaw dropped, and she said “Are you serious? Haaaashem?” (in this unique American way of pronouncing Arabic names) “He’s my friend and I had no idea!” She practically didn’t believe us until we pulled out the book and showed her pics of him with his royal family. Apparently he wasn’t very open about his royalty πŸ™‚
    Mabrook to him!

  • Will I get your blog in trouble when I say I really, really don’t like Hashem? He was at Duke before he transferred over to Georgetown, and he had a reputation for being a sexist jerk. The girls were in awe of him, of course, so it’s not entirely his fault, but still. What a waste of space.

  • No, I didn’t know him personally. I have a very good friend who had some weird experiences being around him. I didn’t really see him personally, and that’s probably a good thing, I got close to some of his friends after he already left. People, Arabs in particular, generally used him to show off their status, and I just try to stay as far away from that sort of thing as possible. He was the sort of person who felt completely justified in looking a girl up and down like a piece of meat, but then again, he appeared to be nice in that whole rich-kid-with-no-worries way. That’s what the thinking folk say.

  • Natalia, well if you heard it from a friend often times impressions can be misleading or wrong so keep an open heart πŸ™‚

  • …Another nice guy and a nice prince gets married: what a sadness! πŸ™‚ My compliments to him and good luck to his wife!
