Thanks bro. I had found some of the posts quite out of place. I personally found one or two posts offensive. I thought its about 'constructive criticism'. Nothing is ever perfect. Let's keep it real! We are one family, the SSC family which includes people of different faiths. The comment on Abraj al Bait is OK, I found it very distracting and out of place in a spiritual environment. A gargantuan waste of space and resources!

Thanks a million AboMalik for this clarification. I hope this puts some sense in some contributors' minds as to what this is all about. We may not all agree on some of the actions taken by the Saudi authorities. But honestly, how do you expand in Makkah? We would like to have alternatives rather than negatives!

Mashallah.

I enjoy the atmosphere at Mecca Mosque more than Al-Masjid al-Nabawi.

At Mecca Mosque, you can pray at many difference places... at the top floor (roof), balcony, second floor and next to kaaba, etc.... Very enjoyable spiritual experience!

At Al-Masjid al-Nabawi, there is nothing like that... it just like 1 big hall

I don't like the idea of destroying houses of wives of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) and his companions of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) for this project.

On 8 Shawwal 1344 AH (April 21, 1925), the Wahhabis, with the help of Abdul Aziz al-Saud, who was the founder of the Saudi dynasty, dared to attack and demolish one of the holiest Islamic sites in the world, the sacred shrines of Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba (AS), Imam Zaynul Abidin (AS), Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (AS), and Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (AS).

In the same year the Saudi government demolished other mausoleums, like the mausoleums and shrines of the Holy Prophet Muhammad's (SAW) mother, Wives of the Prophet (Ummahat ul Mumineen), grandfather, and other ancestors.

They also managed to erase the signs of all the historical Islamic sites and monuments and demolished the graves of more than 200 famous companions of Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).



Drawing of Kaaba as it looked in 1911, just a tad bit over a century.

New model




Looks like the Big Minarets will be ''residential''

Minarets are at the same location as other models

Excuse me but it looks like a Mall and the wannabe "Islamic Touch"in it is closer to historised Indonesian Mosque kitsch than anything else...I can't see God's House in those pics!

this is a disgrace to any Religion!!! nothing holy visible!

over the years Mecca-Medinah did became kind of a mint for the Saudi regime - that is the only reason for them to see it as a holy site, money is holy! And this is the VISUALITION OF THEIR MIND.

malls and mosques in 2014 both use high quality marble floors.... its the year 2014 grow up. and yes there is a mall next to this because 4 million pilgrims need to eat. u'll find all kinds of food even american food.. note that there are american muslims too.... stop bitching about it.

welcome to the 21st century

Megalomania...
but so are many churches and etc. That's why I prefer small temples where prayer will take place at simple environments. Franciscans use these simple environments, especially the Capuchins. And you should check out the Ecumenic Community of TaizÚ where people share while they're there.
