Sheikh Haditha and Emir Abdullah, later King Abdullah I of Jordan generally maintained close relations, but the two also "periodically fell out". Emir Abdullah and Bani Sakhr had a "strong bond" and indeed in August 1922 Emir Abdullah moved his camp to Al-Muwaqqar, near the desert castles, the Khraishas' stomping grounds. There, Emir Abdullah started to organise a force of Bedouin warriors to defend [against the Wahhabi Ikhwan]. Emir Abdullah expressed his devotion and gratitude to their loyalty and courage through land allocations, gifts and even tax benefits. As head of the northern Ka'abnah tribes of Bani Sakhr, Haditha had close ties with Syrian Arab nationalists who held him in great regard. Emir Abdullah relied on Sheikh Haditha's relationships with the nationalists and the Sheikh was the Emir's link to them. During the 1925-1927 Syrian Revolt against the French Mandate, Syrian nationalists such Abd al-Rahman Shahbandar, took refuge with Sheikh Haditha in Al-Muwaqqar where the Sheikh had settled his tribe. Sultan Al-Atrash, Abd al-Rahman Shahbandar, and Nasib Bakri, three of the main leaders of the Syrian Revolt, were close friends of Sheikh Haditha and stayed with him in his camp near Azraq and in Al-Muwaqqar on several occasions. Indeed, they came to Amman through Azraq protected by Sheikh Haditha and secretly called on Emir Abdullah I in 1926. When Frederick Gerard Peake, Alec Kirkbride, and E.R. Stafford arrived in Al-Muwaqqar, and demanded that Sheikh Haditha hand over Syrian nationals and refugees under his care, he "told them that his camp was open to visitors to stay for three days before they were asked to be identified; if however, they claimed to be "dakhil" (someone who asks for the protection of a tribe against a threat), he could not be expected to hand them over," as that would have violated Bedouin codes of honour and hospitality. Sheikh Haditha was also Emir Abdullah's link to Shukri Al-Quwatli, post-independence Syria's first president.

As an archaeological site, Hisham's Palace belongs to the category of Desert castles. These are a collection of monuments dating to the Umayyad dynasty and found throughout Syria, Jordan, Israel, and the West Bank. Although there is great variation in the size, location, and presumed function of these different sites, they can be connected to the patronage of different figures in the Umayyad ruling family. Some of the desert castles, for example Qasr Hallabat or Qasr Burqu, represent Islamic occupations of earlier Roman or Ghassanid structures. Other sites like Qastal, Qasr Azraq, or al-Muwaqqar are associated with trade routes and scarce water resources. With a few exceptions, the desert castles conform to a common template consisting of a square palace similar to Roman forts, a bath house, water reservoir or dam, and often an agricultural enclosure. Various interpretations for the desert castles exist, and it is unlikely that one single theory can explain the variety observed in the archaeological record.
