Something new is taking centre of attention, no one will look forward to the next life if you keep improving this one ? Who paid for this ?

Incredible View at Raffles Creamery Cafe in Makkah
February 5, 2012

I went to Mecca during the weekend to perform Omra. Inshallah الله يتقبلها مني

If you are going to Mecca these coming days or in a month or two when the weather is cool, I suggest visiting Raffles Creamery Cafe at Raffles Makkah Palace Hotel. It has an incredible view of Haram. They have indoors and outdoors seating area. The view of outdoors seating area is amazing. The cafe is located in the main floor where the lobby is and it opens at 4pm until 1am.

If you are going to planning to go, enter Waqf King Abdelaziz through the main door, take the elevators on the right side to P11 floor and then enter the lobby of Raffles Makkah Palace hotel. The cafe should be on the right side of hotel. The view at night is incredible (see picture) so pray your Isha prayer at haram and then drink your coffee or have a quick snack there. Really worth it! While you are at it, don’t forget to pray for me.

The Incredible View!

Residents of Mekkah should be aware that the development like that could turn the purpose of visiting Mekkah from religious things to just visiting as tourism, eventhough they pray but it wouldn't be pure any more as before....
most of the buildings around the mosque were built in the last 30 years, ppl visit makkah to see the mosque, as long as the mosque is still there it doesn't matter what the city looks like.

Call whoever you like mush, don't expect them to let you reverse the charges though. I don't think they would be that interested.

I also do not like this tower, built in the middle of a dried valley full of dirty and poor houses. In my opinion, it doesnt fit very well. Furthermore it looks not very elegant with the trashy tents on the top roof of the lowest part of the complex.

I love London
