Crown Prince Abdullah Ibn Abdul-Aziz, the Deputy Prime Minister and Commander of the National Guard launched six major development projects worth SR35 billion around the Haram Mosque in Makkah.

The projects, including expansion of the mosque’s northern courtyard and construction of residential towers, are aimed at providing more housing and prayer facilities for pilgrims.

The projects include the SR12 billion Jabal Omar residential towers, one of the largest ventures aimed at developing areas surrounding the Holy Haram. Spread over an area of 230,000 square meters, the project includes five-star hotels, commercial centers and prayer facilities for 200,000 worshippers.

Other projects dedicated by the Crown Prince were: Development of Ajyad General Hospital, which is located close to the mosque, and construction of another road to Haram parallel to the existing road from the Jeddah-Makkah Expressway. The new five-km road, to be named after King Abdul-Aziz, is designed to benefit pilgrims.

Crown Prince Abdullah earlier inspected the development plans set out by the Makkah Development Authority including those for the development of Shamiya, Jabal Khandama and Jabal Al-Kaaba areas around the Haram.

The new projects come as part of the government’s efforts to enhance housing and prayer facilities for the millions of pilgrims who come for Hajj and Umrah from all over the world.

The projects are also aimed at developing areas in the central region of the holy city after removing old and dilapidated buildings. They will also provide secure transport systems and reduce traffic congestions in the city.

The total area to be developed is estimated at 587,250 square meters, with 90 percent being old buildings. The expansion of the mosque’s northern courtyard itself will cover an area of 1.2 million square meters between the mosque and the second ring road to the north, Masjid Al-Haram Street to the east and Jabal Al-Kaaba Street to the west.

Abdul Rahman Faqeeh, Chairman of Makkah Construction Company, said the Jabal Omar project would provide more than 25,000 jobs for Saudis. Jabal Omar offers residential facilities for 100,000 people, air-conditioned prayer facilities for 100,000 and open prayer space for 120,000, he added.

Efforts are under way to establish a joint stock firm named Jabal Omar Development Company to implement the project.

The company will have a capital of SR3.5 billion including SR1.1 billion as shares of real estate owners in the area. Part of its shares worth SR850 million will be floated for public subscription. The value of real estate to be acquired for the project is estimated at SR4.3 billion.

Referring to the construction of a new road parallel to the road linking the Jeddah-Makkah Expressway with Haram, Faqeeh said it would start from the end of the first ring road behind the Makkah Construction Company’s residential-cum-commercial complex, pass through Jabal Omar to reach the road parallel to Um Al-Qura Road to join the expressway.

The new road will have a 1,000-meter-long tunnel and will pass by Mawarika, Tandbawe, Jabal Ghurab, Rusaifa and Zahareen.

Crown Prince Abdullah launched the projects worth SR30 billion in Makkah, including expansion of the Haram Mosque’s courtyard, development of Ajyad Hospital and construction of new residential towers in Jabal Omar and Shamiya.

Crown Prince Abdullah inspected the 50-year development plan for Makkah prepared by the Makkah Development Authority and laid the foundation stone for the SR12 billion Jabal Omar project.

He launched new residential and commercial projects in Jabal Khandama and Jabal Kaaba. Work has already been started on some of these projects while the remaining will be carried out within a timeframe, Al-Riyadh Arabic daily said quoting informed sources.

The new projects come as part of the government’s efforts to enhance facilities for the welfare and security of millions of pilgrims who come for Hajj and Umrah from all over the world.

    It is regrettable that the Masajid and other public buildings in Islamic countries depict Masonic symbols. Nimrod/Pharaoh/Queen Semiramas practiced Polytheism by treating various objects in the universe as gods/goddesses, associating each with different attributes, and by seeking their guidance in life and by soliciting, when facing difficult situations, their help. Such beliefs/practices evolved, with the passage of time, into Masonic secular codes of capitalism, gradually popularised in the name of art and culture. The examples of such symbols/codes are Compass, Set Square, Pyramid, Union Jack/Sex Act, Crescent, Stars, Eagle, Goat, Lion, Obelisk, Beast etc (copy attached 5 pages) most of which can, regrettably and unfortunately, be found emblazoned at prominent places in the Masjid-Ul-Nabvi and the Masjid-Ul-Haram.

    Moon is a Masonic symbol which stood, in ancient Egypt, for growth and prosperity and became, in the Christian era, an emblem of the Virgin Mary. A careful study of history would, thus, reveal that the astrological signs/symbols reflect anti Islamic beliefs which view is supported by the worship, as a god, of the Moon done in the past by the Greeks and practiced at present by the Hindus (Somnat ka Mander).
    The Masonic anti-religion forces have now disguised themselves as devotees of the renowned artists Michael Angelo and Raphael with intent, through the representation of their art, to deviate the believers, in the name of fascination with art, from the right path.

    The master planner of recent extension in the two holy mosques appears, in the same vein, to have employed, in the new construction, the metonym codes of figure ‘3’, representing trinity, and of figure ‘8’, representing the sex act, as and the shapes of triangle and square as design codes. It need not be emphasised that triangle and square represent polytheistic ideology and are not only clearly visible in the pre-Islamic era ruins of Madain Saleh and Petra but also are depicted in, respectively, the side and aerial view of the pyramids of pharaohs.

    While the extended holy mosques appear, thus, to have accommodated, to the maximum, Masonic and secular images in the decoration of walls, pillars, arches and ceilings etc, the circle, representing the TAWAF-UL-KAABA and the rectangle, representing the SAEE-UL-SAFA-MARWA appear unfortunately to have been altogether ignored.

    The un-holiest of all phenomena has, however, been reserved for the doors whose designs depict, upward and downward, a continuous Masonic symbol (copy attached 5 pages).
    Besides, the name of Allah and Muhammad are engraved in the medallion fixed in the centre of both the door leafs. Consequently, when a door opens, the sacred name gets split into two, an unimaginably bad omen. No one need be reminded, in this context, that a powerful king had had the temerity to tear off the prophet’s letter whereupon his kingdom had, in a few years, melted into thin air, disappearing from the face of globe.

    Since the foregoing employment in the two holy mosques of the Masonic/secular symbols, with total omission there-from of any Islamic signs/symbols, appears to be motivated to create, in the Ummah, disaffection and hatred towards the House of Saud, the why, how and by whom of such actions needs to be thoroughly investigated.

    It is, therefore, proposed that an investigation commission be set up out of prominent scholars and architects from the Muslim world so that the matter is thoroughly thrashed out and the requisite corrections effected to preserve the peace, harmony and unity of the Muslim Ummah.

    AssalamuaAlaikum wr wb

    Thank you Brother for your interesting historical information about the architectural history of the monuments, buildings and symbols. Need to read through the history and find out the detailed facts. But it is true that these beliefs have been existed from the time where all the idols and symbolics items were removed from inside of the Kaabah itself.
    Even when ayatulkursi was sent down, all the idols and symbolic items were shaken and came came crashing to the ground.

    So it does show that those ancient beliefs were not practiced by our Muslim brothers and sisters but of those of a different ideologue and faith.

    May all of us be away from shiriks and be lighted with wisdom and right path from Allah swt always.

    Amin amin Ya Robbal”alamin.

    His Majesty King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud,
    Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, April 19, 2013
    Office of His Majesty the King, Royal Court,
    Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
    Subject: EMPLOYMENT OF MASONIC SYMBOLS IN THE HARAM EXTENSION
    My Dear Brother,

    As you may be aware, a contract for extension of the Haram has been awarded to M/s ATKINS, which is a secular, fundamentalist company liberally using Masonic occults not only in its name but also in the designs developed, employed and promoted by ATKINS.

    An example is the use, as letter ‘A’ in the name ATKINS, of the Masonic compass (evident in the attachment on page-2). Other such occults employed by ATKINS are set square, union jack/sex act, crescent, stars, eagle, goat, lion, beast, obelisk etc.

    Besides, as can be seen from the attachment on page-3, ATKINS is using the Masonic compass and the David Star as base designs in the HARAM extension where such occults will illustrate the pyramid of the pharaoh and the Hexa of Masonic Jew of ISRAEL.

    As far as the ATKINS’ design of the MASJID-UL-HARAM is concerned, not only the Masonic compass but also the pyramid and the evil eye shall (as per copy attached on page-4) find prominent place. Likewise, the sign of their supreme god compass and square as will be employed in the concrete grills and Hexa of six pyramids in metal grills (copy on page-5).

    It may be pointed out that the open area contains the obelisk is crowned with the umbrella which will, when closed, illustrate the OBELISK and, when open, represent the Union Jack/Sex act/ octangular star (sun) as evident in the attachment on page-6.

    While, on completion of the first phase of the Jabal Omer, Masonic compass and pyramid of pharaoh will be clearly visible (as in the attachment on page-7), the HARAM will, when completely extended, all around portray the Masonic compass and the pyramid of Pharaoh.

    Similarly, the ATKINS final finished design is based on Sun with Masonic numerals 3, 4, 6 totaling 13 (copy attached on page-8).

    Please find enclosed a letter wrote to Governor of MAKKAH and MADINA on September 10, 2011 (copy attached on page 9 to14).

    Since the foregoing employment in the two holy mosques of the Masonic/secular symbols, with total omission there-from of any Islamic signs/symbols, appears to be motivated to create, in the Ummah, disaffection and hatred towards the House of Saud, the why, how and by whom of such actions needs to be thoroughly investigated.

    It is, therefore, proposed that an investigation commission be set up from amongst prominent scholars and architects in the Muslim world so that the matter is thoroughly thrashed out and the requisite corrections effected to preserve the peace, harmony and unity of the Muslim Ummah.

    No matter if some one searches for his vital thing,
    therefore he/she wishes to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

    AssalamuaAlaikum wr wb
    jazakallah for sharing the information. Indeed we need to do more research and improve on our knowledge behind these architectures. Niat is what is important and simplicity is still the best for the Ummah.
    Wallahualam bisawab.
