A Muslem should be able to spot the Holy Ka'akat from anywhere in the Holy City. للمسلم أن يرى بيت الله الحرام من أي مكان في مكة المكرمة دون عائق أوخارق. But I am not surprized since this was a Prophecy told by the holy prophet Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon him. لكن لا أعجب من هكذا أمر بالنظر إلى رسول الله تعالى محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم تنبأ بهذا منذ ما يزيد على الألف وأربعة عام
the phrase "not over shadow or height above the holy house not exist in islam rules" that what most of muslim dont understand..its not overshadow it physically but we cannot overshadow the holy house mentality..

If the house of Saud is an "Islamic family" then why don't they enforce Allah's law in this regard? At least why not poll Moslems all around the world if they don't want Allah? Why do they act like they own that place? They don't! This will call for a revolution. They have no authority whatsoever to tamper with this Holy Place like this. I think they are asking for it...

I was born and raised in Riyadh too, and I feel like the rest here. Your comments don't make any since, sorry

Hi guys - first post

I just want to say that this is a stunning structure - ambitious and original. Great to see a city going with something that will stand out from the crowd.

From the pictures, definitelly ... however everywhere in the press they refer to it as a monorail which always buffled me: How can a monoral that is usually build to transport a small group of people, not to say more expensive then regular 2 track rail, can be proposed and build in a place were a huuuuuge mass transporting of people is required?

It's standard to include the numbers of floors in the thread title, at least with habitable towers. So it is important! Title should be:

MECCA | Abraj Al-Bait | 595m | 1950ft | 76 fl| U/C

no, the floor count is very important because it tells you how much habitable space a tower actually has!
