The ruler next to and below the tower is in meters. If you could help i would really appreciated.
I believe the exact measurement is 43 meters.

I'm waiting for asyiqul huur
actually it means:

"There's no god but Allah, And Mohammad is a messenger of ALLAH"
Allah or Allahom (Elahom) =it's the literal word for god in Arabic
in the Islamic traditions:
Mohammed (SAW), is not the only messenger (therefore you can't translate it to THE messenger).
and muslims regard their religion as the completed and universal version of a primordial, monotheistic faith revealed at many times and places before, including, notably, to the prophets Abraham, Moses and Jesus.
The Qur'an mentions the names of numerous figures considered prophets and messengers in Islam, including Adam, Noah, Abraham,Isaac,Jacob,Joseph, Moses ,John the baptist,Zackariah, Jesus, among others

sorry to be OFF-Topic but I had to clear up that

Salam alaykoum cheikh Rody

We use to say or translate that the Prophet Mohammah saw is the messenger(rassoul) of Allah because:

- he is the last prophet who bring the last message(Quran) to the whole manking
-he is the only prophet that we(muslims) have to follow(sunna)
-and we can only do shahada with this prophet

sorry for OFF-topic.....
