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
with all respect and totally agreeing on the part that Mohamed is A messenger among many, i dis agree that that sentence means a messenger. because in Arabic (and i believe you are an Arab) to say a messenger of Allah, it has to be "rasoolun min Allah"

now can you give me another Arabic sentence that would mean "the messenger of Allah"

in order to translate it as "the Messenger" it has to be in ma'rifah form (Al-Rasool), and not Nakirah. but do you know (المضاف إلى المعرفة معرفة(??
that means as long as Rasool is "mudaaf ila" lafz al jalalah Allah, (a ma'rifah) rasool is also ma'rifah.

so the correct translation will be THE Messenger of Allah.

sorry to be off topic too, but i had to clear it up too, well, from what i studied.

BACK TO TOPIC:

Makkawi, you could open a fund for a camera, may be people are generous

In this vidéo on sept 16,

we can see the Makkah clock when maghreb prayer time comes (at 27 sec)




If you want to see the Makkah clock "LIVE"

you can look at "Makkah Live Broadcast" at prayer time


I saw it few times

Makkah prayer time on 0ctober 28:

Fajr(5:05) - Dhuhr(12:06) - Asr(15:23) - Maghreb(17:48) - Isha(19:19)

On Makkah Live webcam, I looked at maghrib time (17:48) and the camera showed the Makkah clock

So I think they show it at each prayer time.

Its NOT Makkah live "web" cam. Its "Al-Quraan Al-Kareem" channel which telecasts the reciting of Holy Quraan 24/7.
And yes they show the clock and "Allah-u-Akbar" (The first word of Azaan) at the call (Azaan) of every prayer.
