Translated (badly):

Abraj Al Bait in Makkah .. Kiss challenged the compass and «h» Stdechlha «Guinness»

revealed Error 200 mosques in determining the direction of Mecca

Mecca: Tarek Thaqafi
If you are puzzled by the Qibla in Mecca, you just leaking Bbesrk around Abraj Al Bait Towers high-rise adjacent exactly to the Grand Mosque , only to find at that time you and I wish your face toward the qibla form the right, without dependence on latitude and longitude and compass to select.
A group of mosques different in Mecca, missed its goal of specifically optimized for the kiss, the foremost collector «bin Obaid» which has more than 40 year-old misses its target in the destination, opens many questions about the choice in the inauguration of the qibla, which prompted the Ministry of Islamic Affairs and Endowments at the time to send officials of the engineering office to a mosque to measure co-ordinates. And issued a technical report in which they are already a deviation of the kiss from the right side of the platform, then been brought to the Directorate General of Awqaf and mosques of starting field and the development of engineering study with solid new coordinates of the mosque.

though Tawfiq Sudairy, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs and Awqaf has reduced the time of an error 200 mosques in Makkah Qibla, the case left many questions unanswered, and have devoted many mosques in the capital, the holy speeches to show the validity of the prayers that are performed in the mosque or not. According to Sheikh Ahmed implant, the judge in the Court of Cassation in the Holy City told «Middle East» towers that house giant Saudi project, said the concerted efforts of various sectors of the Saudi government, which mocked the bulk of its potential to serve the Two Holy Mosques. The implanted «pervaded the benefits of Abraj Al-Bait Muslims all over the world, and enabled the residents of Mecca to locate the Kaaba».

The implanted «enough honor to this country that the proceeds of this annex urban great emphasis on meeting the needs of the Grand Mosque and its requirements and maintenance on a regular basis, where the reflected aesthetic appearance of this holy city, represented in this high-rise buildings and breathtaking high as that, where the reflected Charity of the country's king, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz to his parents, they stop the sincere to the Grand Mosque them ».

so Salih Mohammed Al-Fadl, member of the Tourism Committee in the room commercial and industrial Mecca, told «Middle East», that the community in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the world waiting for launch at large declared by King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, to adorn the aesthetic appearance of the Haram al-Sharif, to be the largest and highest globally, and will come after installed in the Guinness Book of Records of wider doors.

He credited the value of real estate investments in Mecca during the last three years and reached to 23 billion riyals (6.1 billion dollars), divided into investments in hotel and construction within the central region, and increased the «investment hotel in Mecca, one of the oldest investment across the country, Because of the link Mecca Bmosme Pilgrimage ».

According to a member of Tourism Committee in the Chamber of Mecca, the Holy City increased the rooms housing 500 per cent in the last three years and said, «in the eighties of the last century, the number of rooms housing A room only, the rate is currently 150 thousand hotel rooms and residential ».

The «become a Mecca in the recent competition in Dubai and London in the amount of hotel rooms, residential, and add the towers of the aesthetic touches to the banner, now reflect not only the attitudes of prayer in the Holy City, but also become a witness stand demonstrating the superior progress Urban and hotel in Saudi Arabia ».

can't stop laughing when Google translates anything Arabic.

basically it is talking about how easy now it has become to know the direction of the Kaaba when in Makkah, because this tower is visible from anywhere in the city. and the fact that more than 200 mosques in Makkah has been found not precise in their direction towards Kaaba.

I think this is Muslim version of the tower of Babylon. It just looks to big compered to surrounding buildings. Actually, it looks to big compered to anything else in the city.


P.S. Please don't be offended, just my opinion.

The sheer height alone will allow it to be seen several dozen miles away on a clear day.

not to ruin the mood but i am actually worried, what if indeed a earth quake occurs or what if a terrorist strike happens? i am not against the building itself, but it is way to close to the Kaba, if any disastor occurs in the buildings the whole haram al shareef will be effected and possibly ruined, they should have built it atleast 500 meters to a Km away. its too late now. Did Makkah authority not consider any of these things?

It is being built to house all the pilgrims coming to Makkah. It would make no sense if the worshippers had to actually walk a kilometer just to pray. Also, I really don't think there is a snowball's-chance-in-hell possibility that any terrorist attack occurs in Makkah, that would definately mean Jihad on the Western infidels by whole Muslim world. This structure is meant to last
But again, I am no expert on religious matters of the Middle East, so don't take my words for granted

"ProudArabian" doesn't sound arabian to me, if you r a muslim you'd know what can and can't happen in makkah, anything that will happen is god's will first ...... also why is there "islam = war" in the tags bellow ? stay on topic guys, let the government worry about terrorist attacks..
