In my job I have been ordered to make a dynamic application.Also, that all the pages should have a .php extension rather than a .html extension. I could strongly agree the php files will be needed for dynamic related subjects, but I just don't know why is a php file needed ?
Security? it's going to be view on mobile phones for the most part

Php pages give you the versatility and security to render pages how you WANT them to appear, without being affected by the user's browser version and/or settings. Also, it's much easier to dynamically create content when utilizing php over its alternatives.
File extensions don't mean much. The web server is configured to do algo with certain extensions, but they could be anything really. It has no security implications, and as far as the browser is concerned it's basically a vanity title.
I've built various applications that used unique extensions... such as a C# .NET web app which had two: .portal was for web page requests, and .taj was for ajax requests.
Someone just likes .php I guess.
As for it being a jQuery mobile site, it sounds like they just want you to build it with PHP (and it must not be intended for Phonegap.)
