بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
الحمد لله رب العالمين الذي بعونه تتم الصالحات
والصلاة والسلام على رسوله المصطفى الأمين وآ له وصحبه
ومن أتبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين
All praises for Allah, Lord Master and Absolute Sovereign of the Universe, for only by His aid are all good deeds completed, and may the salutations of Allah and His peace and blessings be upon the Messenger Muhammad, the Trustworthy One, and upon his family and companions, and those that follow them and their way until the Day of Judgment.
اللهم صلّ على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما صليت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد وبارك على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما باركت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد
O Allah may the prayer (for all good) be upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you have given your prayer (for all good) upon Ibraheem and the family of Ibraheem, – Verily you are Praiseworthy, Glorious. And bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you have Ibraheem and the family of Ibraheem – Verily you are Praiseworthy, Glorious.
Observation on the Muslim Prayer Rug of Madina Dome, (built over the grave of the Final Messenger and Prophet of Allah, Muhammad ibn Abdullah, may the most perfect salutations of peace and blessings of Allah be upon him forever, and may he be absolved and freed from all deviations of the ignorant innovators).
Below are three pictures of a popular Muslim prayer rug DESIGN, which has an image in the background of the dome over the Prophet’s grave, may the salutations of Allah and peace and blessing be upon him, and also the Minarat, with the pillars of the Expansion of the Mosque under Saudi Arabian King Abdul Aziz in the foreground with the “Sahin” first courtyard open to the sky in the middle space.
The serious problem with this overall picture is that, if you know the Masjid of the Prophet in Madinah, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him, then you know that the angle in this direction of the image is not pointing the person praying towards the Qibla – the prayer direction towards the Ka’ba in Mecca of all Muslims– but rather veering southwest to pray towards the Prophet’s grave as represented by the Dome. This is a serious deviation from the Monotheism of Islam, Tauheed of LA ILAHA ILL-A-LLAH, and may indicate a proclivity of some ignoramuses to worship the Prophet (peace be upon him) in idolatry and blasphemy instead of Allah, the One and Only God Almighty and Majestic, as the Prophet himself commanded all the Muslims, and was the first and foremost of those to worship Allah without any iota of idolatry, and was the first to warn against all deviation in worship especially if taking his grave as a place and an object of worship.
See these pictures for perspective on the true Qibla as compared to the angle on the prayer rug above.
Through the courtyard inside you can see the Green Dome and a Mineret exactly in the same angle like the third rug example above
See in this larger layout picture above, that the Green Dome is at the left of the much smaller protruding Uthmai constructed Masjid expansion, which directly in front of the Saudi King Abdul Aziz Masjid expansion with its two open air courtyards (now with umbrella like shades during the summer days), which is today surrounded by the much larger Saudi King Fahd Masjid expansion. Below you see the Masjid an Nabawi as Shareef as it was just before this most recent expansion. I remember those days well as in front of the Masjid there were small old Mud and Palm Tree trunk built buildings (seen clearly) , and we would walk though the narrow alleyways of these mud houses to come to the Masjid from the north (we lived in Qurban). In those days and we could also park our cars at the time of Salat directly in front of Bab as Salam (on the left) to quickly catch the long line protruding from the front rows out the door under the open air, as long as we returned quickly to our cars not to block others and the flow of traffic of the cars and buses that would let the passengers disembark from the vehicles to visit the Masjid. Subhanallah, what memories. Picture above with Uthmani Masjid and the KSA King Abdul Aziz Expansion, before the current KSA King Fahd expansion.
Note that the angle of the image on the popular prayer rug (as given in first three versions of the rug above), are seen in true proportions in another take of this picture as below, which demonstrates the clear deviation from the Qibla to the Grave which is covered by the Dome.
(Qibla direction red arrow on right with deviation red arrow on left)
This clear deviation is an innovation that all Scholars Of Islam reject and rebuke as against the Prophet’s commands may the salutations and peace and blessing of Allah be upon him, and their is no doubt that the grave worshipers and the extremist is exaggeration of the status of the Prophet and the Saints (Auliya) are somehow connected to this deviation.
Of course the dead give away proof of this deviation, with stark clarity like the sun on a clear day, is the angle of Minarat behind the Green Dome (as seen in the three versions of the rug above), conclusively proving that the angle indicated by the rug for the person praying is not the true Qibla of Tauheed but the exaggerated veneration of graves by the extremist Sufis and deviated innovators.
See below a map of the Masjid in another version. Note the Green Dome and Minaret in relation to the open courtyard.

And another map, clearly showing Qibla in respect to Prophet’s grave and Dome above
The Green Dome
The famous Green Dome that stands directly above the grave of Prophet Muhammad (sallaAllâhu ^alayhi wa sallam)
And another expansion is planned, as below which gives another perspective
Prophet’s Mosque Expansion.
08/20/2005Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz has issued a directive to complete the expansion of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah.
and of course see the
Plans for future buildings around the Prophet’s Mosque.
As we all know in the early era of Islam, the Prophet and the Muslim were in Mecca and they were directed to pray towards Jerusalem in the north, and therefore the Prophet peace and blessing be upon him, would often go south of the Ka’ba such that he would be facing the Ka’ba and also Jerusalem in the north when he would pray.
Upon Hijra to Madinah, this was not possible since Madinah is approximately due north of Mecca and Jerusalem is approximately due north of Madinah, and they faced the opposite direction of the Ka’ba of Mecca for the first year after Hijra.
Then the verses of Surat al Baqara were revealed
ANOTHER PROBLEM IS THIS, as below:
the Saudi emblem on a Muslim prayer rug.
But that’s another story of observation and analyses to be examined at a later time, and I think you get an idea of the issues involved.
And Here is the Clock Tower, towering over the Masjid al Haram, the most sacred Masjid of Allah with the Kaba
Let me introduce you to the Abraj Al-Bait Towers, also known as the The Mecca Royal Clock Hotel Tower.
Masjid al Haram In Mecca May Allah increase it in nobility,
in respect to the Abraj Al-Bait Towers
The giant clock of Makkah is all set to tick home a new time standard, as some scholars believe that it will be an ideal alternative to the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
Boasting the world’s largest clock (4.7 times larger than Big Ben) on each side, the 1,591 ft tall hotel will be among the world’s second tallest tower. Estimated to cost USD$3 billion, the hotel will feature 24-hour butler service, segregated gyms, beauty parlours, grooming salons, a spa and a chocolate room where chefs will prepare bespoke pralines and truffles.
The hotel will be managed by Fairmont Hotels who are keen to make the hotel the most luxurious hotel in the Hoyl City. Speaking to Arabian Business, Mohammed Arkobi, the hotel’s manager, said the hotel will be at the centre of the seven tower complex located opposite the Grand Mosque, the holiest site in Islam, occupying a space equal to 15.6 million square feet.
The hotel will have 76 elevators and 1,005 guest rooms and suites. It will have five “Royal” floors and two “Golden floors”, the latter referring to Fairmont Gold, the company’s exclusive “hotel within a hotel”.
