Yes, it is arabic. I don't believe there is an exact translation, but it roughly equates to 'God says it is beautiful' or 'It is beautiful, by God'.

I agree with both of you.

(#745m-120m spire is added which will have 30 or so "levels" inside surpassing 628m /KVLY mast in Blanchard,USA.) so there will be 30 more levels added to the tower? that can be used?

^ well thats the big question. some sources have said there will be a total of 189 floors in burjD, which can only mean there will be 30 or so in steel section above lev160. i dont they will be inhabitable. who knows.but certainly contain "levels" with access.
