I cannot imagine Allah approves to this kitsch-ass looking mess. Its so horrible!!! If people don't kill each other by masses each year being crushed to death there will certainly be many hart attacks when looking at this monster and surroundings!

It looks like you are systematically going from thread to thread trying to stir up trouble.

It certainly will no longer look as much out of place once it is part of a bigger cluster.

-edit- While we're on a the subject, the latest update in the Rawabi Abraj Al Bait thread is from early October, are there any news on its status?

I would certainly advocate for it to be added to the "World's Modern 7 blunders". In fact, I think it would be a toss up between it and Ryugyong Hotel.

It overshadows a hugely important religious site, if it wasn't so dominating i'd like it - the fact is hight restrictions exist for a reason in many countries.

Does having 'religious' slogans (text, words, billboards) at the top of a building make it a religious site too?

This proves that you are misinformed and malicious.

24:40 Or (the Unbelievers' state) is like the depths of darkness in a vast deep ocean, overwhelmed with billow topped by billow, topped by (dark) clouds: depths of darkness, one above another: if a man stretches out his hands, he can hardly see it! for any to whom Allah giveth not light, there is no light!

24:47 They say, "We believe in Allah and in the apostle, and we obey": but even after that, some of them turn away: they are not (really) Believers.
