World’s Largest Clock Tower Overshadows Al Kaaba!



Mecca Clock

Saudi Arabia is still trying to break records as they built the world’s largest clock tower in the holy city of Mecca… do I hear applause anywhere. What will the world’s largest clock tower do to humanity? What is the point of spending millions of dollars for a clock? I mean seriously I find nothing appealing about such achievements… how many children can be fed with this money? How many can be educated? Instead they built a clock!

Saudi Arabia Clock Tower

The testing of the Mecca Clock project will begin the first week of Ramadan. It has been developed by engineers from Germany and Switzerland along with a team of specialists from Europe and around the world .The overall height of the clock tower is 601 meters and the clock height from its base to the highest point is 251 meters.

I hope they are very proud with this project because it is doing nothing more than making the world less natural and more planned.

    This is actually built on a hotel named Abrag Zamzam. I've just returned from and Umrah a week ago, I stayed there with my family. It's not all that glamorous!!!!

    That's true it's a waste of money they are just trying to show off instead with this money they should feed the poor,educate the children,and help money that need it the most.I don't understand what a clock tower can do for mankind.Absolutely disgusting how ppl want to spend money on all these superficial things.

    LOL you're still talking? maybe if you would carry out what you preach, then you should talk :) spending time and effort making defamation videos on youtube and spending all your energy on tearing people to pieces hardly do your preaching justice. making videos about your hate on Islam, Arabs, Lebanese, Haifa (i dont give tuppence about her btw), lashing out at all who are not Indians are not and i repeat NOT, a good way of spending time and let me remind you, Time = Money :)

    Wow! l'm amazed! Why always when the Arab build something the whole world start criticize them? "Monay waisting, they could feed people" Do you really know how good life have the Saudis, in general? Even the ones who dont like to work? All Gulf countries have good incomes for their citizens and also for foreigners! It's the heaven on eartn even for foreigners! Btw, do you know how rich are the presidents in poor countries, the kings in Africa? See Thailand, the richest president! Why Arabs should help other countries while their own rulers steel them??? See India! The richest people there, but the poorest people also! Why the richest dont help them, they have the same nationality?! USA - a pleasure for them to invest in armys and wars, but not to help others! Stop judging the Arabs, who are the first to do charity and let them build! To judge them because of a clock? Give us a break! l hate the hypocrit people!

    Daria,

    You should visit Saudi Arabia in particular and then post a comment!!! there lots of poor people .... but still regardless of the poor issue ... such a tower shouldn't be built in such a place, it's ugly ... it kills the charm of the holy city of Mecca ... Paris Municipality ... Cordoba Municipality ... etc will never allow such a tower to be built in the first place to reserve the charm of their cities ... ... we are talking about Mecca here ... where Al Saud is trying to make money of it with all the possible means .. even if they have to change all Mecca for good and leave nothing from its historical building which already happening!!

    One day, no one will remember that Islam started there ... there will be only Towers ... may be they will put Al Kaaba on a tower next time ... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, I'm very convinced! I've seen this place in reality, and actually it was very beautiful fro the outside. But you have to admit that building such a HUGE place infront of the ka'ba attracts more attention to the tower than the ka'ba

    red replied to comment from Daria

    i agree with you Daria. This is not merely a clock but a hotel.I see the building as something that will help people find space to live in Mecca especially during the Hajj season. Now if you're not happy about the DESIGN...then say so. But the fact is that major hotels are required. Mecca isn't supposed to be left to stay old and uncomfortable. I for one commend the work our government have done on the city. They are using their money to make the place more convenient and relaxing for the millions of pilgrims that come to Mecca every year. I am judging that a lot of you haven't been to the city. Its absolute chaos during Hajj. The Saudis have spent billions on the city to make it more convenient and more pilgrim friendly and Allah will reward them for their work. Most of those who have not performed Hajj, and have no idea how difficult it is, when you travel with family (wife or parents), with crowd pushing you as if a stampede is in place. Mecca has a severe shortage of rooms to accommodate the vast numbers of pilgrims who visit the city during the Haj. Therefore, this building was not built senselessly rather it was built to accommodate and facilitate the pilgrims who visit Mecca.

    Dearie, I agree with you partially, in the sense that maybe the building should have been built on the outskirt of Mecca, and i suggest have special shuttle buses for pilgrims that run every 10 minutes to and from the hotels to the Kabbah. but all in all, this building was not as you suggested a money making scheme by the government. the Saudis have the right to ensure that the annual pilgrimage occurs as safely as possible, so it is not surprising they are bent on making changes. For example, the ramp that leads to the area where the pilgrims throw stones at the devils at times was where hundreds could be killed when crowds rushed forward to complete this portion of the pilgrimage. Today, however, the ramp system has been changed and can hold 3 million people and has capacity for as many as 5 million.When modernity touch religion it's no surprise that edifice belong to it veered away from the cultural. Abraj Al Bait is no exception, a five-star hotel. Abraj Al Bait is built to welcome and serve visitors who pay visit to the Holy City of Makkah from corners of the world. the edifice is capable of handling 65,00 people, four-storey 780-car parking and 10 for buses, fully serviced one-to-three bedrooms. It also includes a four-storey mall for convenience, conference center for 1,500 persons and equipped by two helipads. The prayer hall is capable of handling 3800 persons. hope you are informed of the reason of this "unnatural" buiding. i am from KSA, and as every other countries, we do have poor people but that is no reason to stop our strive for building edifices that could be used for good reasons. i fail to see why this is such an atrocity????

    "The building should have been built on the outskirt of Mecca"
    I soooooooooooo agree with u on that ...well said, especially that the surrounding of Mecca is almost empty!

    Pilgrimage unless 'vip rich pilgrimage' cannot afford to stay in such an hotel ...

    This hotel was built to make money not to ease pilgrimage's life.

    Look at al Kudus (Al-AQSA MOSQUE)... despite the Israeli occupation ........... , its still viewable from many angles from far distance ... that is not the case anymore with Al Haram .. and al Kaaba .. :(! all u can see is ugly towers designed by stupid architects :(!

    l'm christian, but l like Islam and l visit Middle East from time to time. Belive it or not, even in my country, they build hotels close to the monasteries and now they want to build the biggest church with restuarants, hotel, cinema and so on... Thank God there they build a clock. Hotels is ok, because 2 million pilgrims! It is normal... What about that clock? It is not Burj Al Arab, it is just a clock. Regarding the poor people... we all know the pilgrims from Africa "forget" their way back to their countries. I was talking about the Saudis, the citizens and the foreigners there they have good life. How to give money to the ones who dont work and they occupy your country illegal and when you bring them back their goverment say it's not their people??? It's this normal for you? For me it is not, because l have the same in my country and these kind of people occupy the whole Europe. If you go in a country, go for work, not to stay and ask for charity or to do bad things (in general this happens with some "poor" people) It's their own goverment's fault! Period.

    Daria,

    How can we forget poor people from africa.
    And First off all it is non of your business intrupting in our country, as you said in your last comment {"How to give money to the ones who dont work and they occupy your country illegal and when you bring them back their goverment say it's not their people???"}. I am so sad aboyt your think. Basically you dont have any point in your comment it should be better for you to stay calm as prescribed by me.
    The sheikhs are really wasting alot of money every year 5000 + student's go over seas for studies, with which the expence of students these saudis can make one international university for the students.

    >If you like Islam so much why dont you accept it. Just give me a simple answer.>

    this kind of attitude is really not necessary. a christian states she likes Islam (i believe she respects,admire and tolerate Islam) so you do not need to challenge her on that grounds.we should welcome them instead of creating tension. and the fact that u say our sheikhs are wasting money by sending our students overseas is just crap.they have the rights to send their students to gain experience outside just like any other country in this world. why are u telling Arabs on how we should spend our money?if the goverment were building casinos or prostitute hubs like some countries i know of, i would understand the negative sentiment but this is absurd.The Saudis have a right to progress further just like other countries. I read some comments on another article about the Jumeirah in Dubai.and most of the comments there were positive. so what is the difference here? even you Cupcake, you gave positive comment on the Jumeirah.Must each and every step on the Arabs to further develop their country be scrutinized and criticized unfairly. then when they do not do any development, the same people would criticize and complain. this is needed to accommodate the millions of visitors to Mecca every year, and we just talking about the Hajj mind you. we have not talked about the millions of all year round visitors for Umrah yet. Mecca is a major "tourist" hot spot, i would even dare to say it is the biggest tourism attraction. you say this building is just for the rich. again i do not think you have even been to the city. there are many accommodations for every budget but why is it so bad to build something beyond the "normality" and to cater the other visitors. there are malls in the "clock" as well, to cater the pilgrims needs for F&B and other necessities, this is a great service.

    With all my respect, you bring this issue to the extreme side. l respect Islam more than you can imagine, otherwise l would'nt "deffend" an Islamic country. You should better read my first comment, because you missunderstood my words. Honestly, l dont think you are a Saudi and if you are are, you should be more respectul to your goverment who did alot for you... l'd be very thankful if my goverment will help me to study in other country and it will help me to have a good a job. Regarding the poor people, here is what you missunderstood. I was talking about the foreigners who are illegal there (true, l never visit Saudia, but alot of news from there + l have friends who work there) to do charity is one thing but to accept others to stay there illegal is something else, while their rulers own 12 Rolls Royce (cheeck about Africa's presidents please!!!) l hope now you understand my point. Btw, you should appreciate my words about your country, because l did'nt attack, like others did, in fact l have very good opinion about it, but you, living there, criticize your own country for no reason. Thank you

But when Arabs do a good thing, they are judged. l dont agree with this kind of thinking and l repeat l hate hypocrit people. All the best, RED

    Salam,

    There is good and negative from the construction of this building but i believe the good outweighs the negatives. Some of you who have never been to Mecca could not possibly comprehend the magnitude of pilgrims all over the world to perform Ibadah of Hajj and umrah. Building another form of accommodation is a necessity. on the negative scale, the building might be a distraction from the Kaabah itself so i would think it is better to construct the building further from the Kaabah. But, what is done is done. The huge complex offers many needed services to the pilgrims and the Meccans.

    In terms of education, we have many universities in the Kingdom, including International universities. in fact, have you heard of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) ? one of the topnotch university with the best that education can offer but who is to say we should stop funding students to further their studies overseas? I have benefited a lot from studying overseas, in Malaysia. In fact, i have made new friends, a new second home, new insight and etc. Suffice to say, we should stop our negativity when it comes to Arab and its services to the world.

    Daria, I embrace you and thank you for your kindness and tolerance. you are an example to be followed.

    Dear Bros & Sis,

    I've understand the above mentioned things. Look Basically I am not from Saudi Arabia. Since Long before Me and my family visit makkah usually, when the intercontinental hotel was'nt built in front of makkah. We delighted to see Makkah as soon as possible and now these people stood a huge hotel infront of it yet to see Masjid Al harm we need to cross the hotel. Above Mentioned Magnitude its pilgrims are increasing every year. But the cost of hotels are speaking to skies above. Example {600sr per night in Le meridian}. They Can build these Skycrapers lil bit far from holy masjid to maitain its glorious looks from far away.Ok RED {AHMAR} I apologize on what i said to DARIA upon accepting the religion, i know i must be humble& respectful talking about religion. I hopefully understood about the illegal people living over here in gettos or under the bridge of balad Downtown. RED{Saudis have right to progress} even every body has right to progress,i live in jeddah hopefully you know that palestine street & Amir majed street is blocked for over pass and under pass, tahlia Street & amir majed street is blocked for the same. this construction will keep the road block for more than a year. About the higher studies every country has an international students universities. As well as saudia they two or three And The cost per year of those universities is around 60,000 to 80,000 per year many people cannot afford this much amount, One thing i appretiate is that some private universities are taking low fees but the admission of student will be private.Why its hard to understand that everybody tells Arabs how to spend their money? because when anyone of you earns a lot of money then its time to spend, It seems that person will have no patience that how it can be utilized they just spend,invest etc money where ever they want. I wactced many videos of ameer that how they import spectacular cars from europe it cost around SR60 lacs. Woh thats really to much. Ok Daria I read your first comment look when some one do good like charity,donation etc this is noticed world wide Example steve jobs ceo of apple co. donate more than 2 lac $ a year to african countries. Did you guys ever heard that any rich arab is donating etc to poor people. So when the good things are noticed it turns mind of spender to charity.Inshort Everyone first sees himself and then for others. By the way where are you from Red & Daria? hope to discuss more.

    Ah well nice to hear from you again.Making videos about your hate on Islam, Arabs, Lebanese, Haifa? I don't make vids about my hate for islam,arabs,and lebanese lol
    Where did you get that from? My username on youtube is cairo4448 go search me if you want I'm sure you already know it by now since you know a lot about me which btw is creeping me out,but I don't mind. You won't find any videos about my hate for islam,arabs,and the lebanese. I hate Haifa it's not my fault she happens to be arab and muslim.
    And to you it feels like I defend Indians,but I really don't I would defend anyone that needed me to defend them really. Indians =non-muslims majority atleast and I am non-muslim as well which is why sometimes I end up on there side at times that's all. My confessions: Yes I hate islam & it's teaching,yes I hate haifa with a passion. BUT I do not and I repeat do not hate all arabs there are good and bad ppl in every race & country,enough said.
    Hating islam is not a crime it's a free country I can do and say as I wish what are you going to do,stone me to death? lol
    We are not in afghanistan or iran.I know waleg did a story on an iranian woman who was stoned to death. And last time I checked hating haifa was definitely not a crime maybe to some obsessed pervs like Frank Coffman,but not one I can be punished for

    Salammualykum Ahmad, I'm from Saudia, nice to meet you brother, and I did say i suggested the hotel to be on the outskirt of Mecca but that is done.Ramadan Al Karim to you.

    >Hating Islam is not a crime it's a free country I can do and say as I wish what are you going to do,stone me to death?<

    Sweetie my unimpressive one, last time i checked, giving hate speech is outside the law so that contradicts your little chant about a free country(you do seem to have a passion on contradicting yourself, among your Haifa and many other passions).any communication which disparages a person or a group on the basis of some characteristic is forbidden because it may incite violence or prejudicial action against or by a protected individual or group.President Obama signed the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law last year (if you re an American, you would have known this:)) so you can't go around stating you hatred towards everything else but Indian and expect people to take your words seriously. come on, have some grace, step away from that keyboard and seek professional help. you re embarrassing yourself,but i guess that is how cowards are, they go on and on inciting hate behind their computers thinking they achieve something.

    'Notimpressed' is a person who has multiple accounts on youtube, one with an Egyptian identity, one with an Indian one etc etc all created to praise the beauty that is in India... A person like that is not worth it.

    Do not help her soil this article too by indulging her love of drama behind the computer screen so she can fill her empty life.

    You know she lies because she thinks she is safe behind the computer, however as we may not find videos that show her hatred but sure as hell there are her comments all over other videos showing her hatred but she is so shallow in her way of thinking, she thinks no one can find out....

    Just ignore her from now on and raise above people like that dear- there are plenty of people like that of all nationalities and beliefs, as you said she is only doing herself harm with all the stress and hatred, no one else.

    no no no and NO!, The Hotels, The Clock, The Height, The Glitters, The Shimmers, The Huge... to name a few.... will never take the amazing beauty of Al Ka'abah Baitullah al-haram, never, and never will, believe me!.

    Why those critics, looking at The Kaabah now, are u watching the original kaabah built by Nabi Allah Ibrahim Alihissalam..? No, are u watching the Kaabah as what Nabi Muhammad S.A.W saw at his time, answer is NO!, things are subjected to change. Even The Holy House of Kaabah went through multiple reconstruction and rebuilding. Nothing is baqa' in this fana world except Allah Azzawajalla. Are you going to change the hotels around alHaram with the new one built with the same material as in early Islam time, same height, same size and shape? answer is no, we are now subjected to occupational, safety and health issues and bound to the intenationally rekoned acts and regulations, eventhough new construction being built in haramain, and the non-muslims are not allowed in haramain, but the Saudi goverment is not to be accountable (to foreign country) to any mishap happened to foreign citizen pilgrim during hajj or umrah seasons.
    To some those pilgrims who come from nations that is so poor, maybe this is a place for them to appreciate the beauty of buildings around Kaabah and the surrounding Makkah since those unfortunate would never have a chance to visit other places throughout their lifetime. If you'll get amazed by Disney land in the west, or if u get amazed by Vatican for whatever reason, it is your choice, but for Holy Kaabah, no matter what it takes, The Baitul Atiq has it's own super special charm and nothing can distract that charm from The Holy House of Kaabah, even if it is in the middle of amazing, glittering sky scrappers around it... Can u tell what will happen to areas around Kaabah and Makkah city in 50 years to come unless u plan what it should be in accordance with the 'Al Islamu ya'lu, wa la yu'la 'alaih" and compared with other cities globally ...MAKKAH & MADINAH TOWARDS THE BEST...

    well.. as per mecca residents told me when i was there the few weeks ago, the reason Saudi built that very beautiful tower was because.. most of the mosque at mecca and the district near it don't know exactly where the kiblat at the Baitullah is.. as most of ulama checked in most of their district, most of them got wrong kiblat.. so their king give an initiative to built such tower so most of people there know where about the baitullah is.. and after all.. no matter how big the tower is to me, it doesnt bother me at all when i was doing my prayers there.. it depends actually how concentrate you are on doing your solah.. its part of your iman.. dont blame the clock.. no matter how big that clock was, the Baitullah still look very magnificent...
