Some parts of downtown Abu dhabi are as crowded as Makkah

I think some people mistakenly refer to any form of elevated train as a monorail.

The law was enacted in ~1700s because some morons tried to destroy Qib'la so Saudi king closed the city for non-Muslims.

in Islamic Law, non-muslims are not allowed to come near the Grand Mosque of Makkah.
now, we are not here to debate on Islamic Law. this thread is about Abraj al Bait. so please keep on topic.

Plus it's sacred ground, for worshippers not tourists (muslim or non muslim) - don't interpret it as simple prejudice. In the 80s the king invited some French non-muslim guests there, that's the only time recently the law was usurped.

Iīm sorry again gentlemen. I donīt want to ruin the forum. With this topic I am DONE. But I must say that I didnīt know about islamic law. I was just surprised to find out that islam does NOT allow non-muslims to take part in certain things. And that to me is called DISCRIMINATION. And that should never be allowed under GODīS heaven. You can come to my church any time. You will be welcome even if you hate Catholics and non-coran-believers. And even if you tried to kill me out of anger and hate for calling you a terrorist! **JESUS=LOVE****VIVA CRISTO REY Y LA VIRGEN DE GUADALUPE**
