ok

why us are the ones who receive this ignorant yet racist and hateful comment?

we are peaceful people, we were deeply saddened because of what happened on 9/11 and we were shocked that such action was done by Muslims! and unlike what other ignorant said (we did condemned that action)

They were EXTREMEST
do you know what that word means?
it means they don't represent the faith and they are not by any mean example of the majority.

save your apology to your self, seems like you haven't done your self justice, go read some and educate yourself then try to think of more reasonable questions instead of (I wonder how they would feel if they faced the same situation)

i think this new development has turned a very religious and sacred area into a 'las vegas' type resort. why build hotels right next to such a sacred mosque? and such tall buildings really look out of place. you all dont think it looks like las vegas now? all thats missing are the neon lights and casinos.

Alright, leaders of the Arab world, we get it.... you have alot of money. But to deface the holy mosque like this, is unforgiveable- do your showing of in Dubai, Mecca is for the Ummah.

The render is too small. In any case, they should use the numerals on the right. The ones on the left are western.

Tokyo's Sky Tree will be higher. As will the Chicago Spire if that ever materializes.

Eid al-Adha and the Hajj, 2009

Today, November 27th, marks the beginning of 2009's Eid al-Adha, the Muslim "Festival of Sacrifice", commemorating the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son to God. Muslims around the world will celebrate by slaughtering animals to commemorate God's gift of a ram to substitute for Abraham's son, distributing the meat amongst family, friends and the poor. Eid al-Adha also takes place immediately after the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca that is a pillar of Islamic Faith. Some 2.5 million Muslim faithful from all over the world descended on Mecca this year, many encountering an unusual occurance: heavy flooding due to recent torrential rains. Collected below are photographs from this year's Hajj and observance of Eid al-Adha. (38 photos total)
