I haven't seen a single Muslim express offense over the development's location and scale in this thread, only non-Muslims charging to the rescue moaning about how much the development's location and scale must surely offend Muslims...

I think Saudi men like to sleep with their wives like everyone else


Once the tower is finished, I really want to see a photo of the clock mechanisms behind the face. Must be huge...

Depends. Married couple it wouldn't matter in a hotel. Unmarried, that's a problem, it would violate sharia law (there's a name for it but I forgot...)

It's haram (an islam word for naughty)

It's forbidden for a women to be alone or show her to a men that aint her husband.

Everywere, in cars, restaurants, busses, on the streets and also for hotel rooms in Mecca.

A big problem for example is that women are forbidden to drive, and forbidden to take cab ( cause all cabdrivers are men).
