Who exactly are the "صحبه الكرام"?
It would be cool if they write "رمضان كريم" or "كل عام وانتم بخير" or "عيد سعيد" on the banner ^_^. I'd do it myself but I just can't find out whats the font they used, I've tried "Thulth" but its not quite same.

I have probably 8-9 Thulth fonts, all the thulth fonts I could find. If it is a Thulth font, they probably haven't made a computer font of it.

Holy Mosque New Expansion

''Foundation stone'' on Friday 19 August

الملك يثري جمعة الإسلام ويؤسس لأكبر توسعة للحرم المكي في التاريخ

17 August 2011

يؤسس خادم الحرمين الشريفين الملك عبد الله بن عبد العزيز، الجمعة المقبل لمشروع توسعة المسجد الحرام على مساحة تقدر بـ 400 ألف متر مربع.

وأوضح نائب الرئيس العام لشؤون المسجد الحرام الدكتور محمد بن ناصر الخزيم أن مشروع التوسعة سيتم وفق أحدث وأرقى النظم الكهربائية والميكانيكية لمباني التوسعة والساحات المحيطة بها والجسور المعدة لتفريغ الحشود، ترتبط بمصاطب متدرجة، وتلبي التوسعة جميع الاحتياجات والتجهيزات والخدمات الأساسية مثل الأنظمة الحديثة للتخلص من النفايات وأنظمة المراقبة الأمنية ونوافير شرب الماء.

وأضاف الدكتور الخزيم، أن التوسعة الجديدة ستستوعب بعد اكتمالها نحو مليون ومائتي ألف مصل، يتم العمل فيها على تظليل الساحات الشمالية وترتبط بالتوسعة السعودية الأولى والمسعى من خلال جسور متعددة لإيجاد التواصل الحركي المأمون للحشود، وستؤمن منظومة متكاملة من عناصر الحركة الرأسية حيث تشمل سلالم متحركة وثابتة ومصاعد روعي فيها أدق معايير الاستدامة من خلال توفير استهلاك الطاقة والموارد الطبيعية، وكذلك اعتماد أفضل أنظمـة التكييف والإضاءة التي تراعي ذلك.

وأشار نائب الرئيس العام لشؤون المسجد الحرام إلى أنه ارتبط بهذه التوسعة دراسة توسعة المطاف والأمر بتكييف كامل المسجد الحرام المتوقع ظهور ثمارهما قريبا تسهيلا وتيسيرا للمسلمين .

وأكد الدكتور الخزيم، أن أمر خادم الحرمين الشريفين، القاضي بإنشاء هيئتين مستقلتين تتوليان تطوير مكة المكرمة والمدينة المنورة والمشاعر المقدسة يأتي انطلاقا من اهتمامه وعنايته ــ أيده الله ــ بالمدينتين المقدستين، كونهما مصب اهتمام أكثر من مليار مسلم تهوي أفئدتهم إليهما ويتشوقون باستمرار للقرب منهما، مشيرا إلى أن توسعة جسر الجمرات أنهت معاناة الحجاج من الازدحام أثناء الرمي، وكذلك قطار المشاعر لتسهيل التنقل بين المشاعر المقدسة بالإضافة إلى إنشاء قناتين فضائيتين مستقلتين، إحداهما للقرآن الكريم تبث من المسجد الحرام والأخرى للسنة النبوية تبث من المسجد النبوي.

''Foundation stone'' on Friday 19 August

Haram expansion to accommodate 1.2m more worshippers


A general view of the Grand Mosque in Makkah

By P.K. ABDUL GHAFOUR | ARAB NEWS

Published: Aug 16, 2011 23:10 Updated: Aug 16, 2011 23:18

JEDDAH: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah will lay the foundation stone for a new expansion of the Grand Mosque in Makkah on Friday, it was announced on Tuesday.

The new project, covering 400,000 square meters, will create prayer space for an additional 1.2 million worshippers.

“The new project, named the King Abdullah Expansion, will be carried out using the most advanced mechanical and electrical systems,” said Muhammad Al-Khozaim, vice president of the Presidency for the Two Holy Mosques Affairs. “Once completed, the new facility will be able to accommodate nearly 1.2 million worshippers,” he said.

The new expansion will also have basic facilities including modern garbage disposal systems and security monitoring systems. Sunshades will also be established on the northern courtyards of the mosque. The new annex will be linked with the existing mosque and masaa with a series of bridges. It will also provided with air conditioning systems and electric stairs.

Al-Khozaim disclosed plans to expand the mataf (the circumambulation areas around the Holy Kaaba) and provide air-conditioning for all parts of the Grand Mosque, adding that the two projects would be carried out shortly along with the new Haram expansion project.

Speaking about other projects implemented at the directives of King Abdullah, he said the newly expanded masaa (the running course between Safa and Marwa) could now accommodate 118,000 pilgrims per hour instead of 44,000.

He described the King Abdul Aziz Endowment Towers as one of the largest real estate projects in Makkah. It comprises six residential towers and a five-star hotel. The frontal towers are 28 stories high while the rear ones are 35 stories. Side towers are 45 stories while the hotel tower is 60 stories. The entire complex with 11,000 rooms and suites can accommodate 35,000 pilgrims.

Al-Khozaim commended the king for taking the initiative to implement a number of vital projects for the welfare of pilgrims. They include the Mashair Railway connecting Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah, the Haramain Railway to link the two holy cities of Makkah and Madinah, the Jamrat bridge complex, the Central Zone Development project, the King Abdul Aziz Road, new ring roads in addition to flood drainage projects in the holy sites.

The Jamrat Bridge project, which was carried out at a cost of SR4.5 billion, was instrumental in preventing stampedes during the stoning ritual. It is designed to accommodate 5 million pilgrims. The Mashair Railway will become fully operational before the upcoming Haj in November. The metro service will operate 17 trains with 12 coaches in each train. A train will carry 3,000 pilgrims.
