Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah, Al-Masjid An-Nabawi As-Sharif, Makkah al-Mukarramah, Ramadhan 1432

…five things…

By In

Ramadhan specials ready for Eid giving are generously offered by Bint Siraj on her unique calligraphy…Insha’Allah visit her shop for a spending spree…

~*~

…the new fans attached to the pillars have reached the eastern sisters areas…

~*~

…the ‘new look’ Madinatun Nabi?…photos taken from displays at the Taiba Civilization Gallery

~*~

…the ‘new look’ Zamzam containers…

Technologically advanced and highly hygienic dispensers and filling machines will be used to distribute Zamzam water to worshippers at the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah during Ramadan…click image for details

~*~

…the ‘new look’ for the Makkah clock tower…the official Makkah time is set to begin on the 1st Ramadhan along with 16 special vertical lights that will flash 10 kilometers into the sky during special Islamic occasions…and during the Adhan, 21,000 lamps on the highest point on the clock will send brilliant white and green lights to the sky…they will be seen from a distance of 30 kilometers away…indicating the beginning of time for prayer…especially for people with special needs such as those with weak hearing and those far away from the Al-Masjid Al-Haram…

(apologies for the inferior scanned image, Insha’Allah the concept is conveyed)

~*~

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

    Makkah Tower – a concept like the Empire State building or CN Tower – Flashing lights on special occasions. Isn’t this considered ‘imitating’ the kufar in terms of deen? Flashing lights at times of prayers – I say it’s bida!

    A guady flashy idea.

    Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear Brother Khaadim, I totally agree! I was merely stating what we as the Ummah are subjected to….and unfortunately most of the developments in the Haramain are such gaudy distractions. May Allah Ta’ala’s Mercy soon flood all hearts, Ameen.
    Wassalamu alaikum

    It has proved to be a big distraction for everyone doing Tawaaf.

    Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear Brother Madni, yes, this giant edifice towers over the Ka’aba…see comment in the other post…I was shocked looking at the structure above the clock one night to see it sparkle like a massive diamond…BLING on a large scale! The beautiful simplicity of our Beloved Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam seems an unknown quality regarding many things here. Du’a!!!
    Wassalamu alaikum
