Dear Shar,
You can add your data (shapefiles) to your GIS software and draw simply a
box around your data, and from the graphic box properties you can get the
lower left coords, and the upper right coords.
You can simply add these coords to your extent settings in the mapfile.
with the following order minx miny maxx maxy.

You can find attached a sample map file which will work for Jordan. you may
need to adjust the extent slightly as needed.
(See attached file: sample_en.map)
