Al-Masjid al-Ḥaram, by Ahmed Al.Badawy

In this frame, I'm presenting Al-Masjid al-Ḥaram, the Sacred Mosque, with the angle that shows the whole surrounding atmosphere of the Ka’bah, taken at 12:40am on September 09, 2010. This panorama also shows the beauty of the place and its integration with the sky. Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) and his son Ismail (Ishmeal) raised the principals from the house, the Ka’bah for those who do tawaf, who intent upon, do ruku and sujud. This task was assigned to Abraham (pbuh) by Allah(SWT). Ka’bah is the direction of the believe for those people who submit their will to Almighty can enter into this most scared city. Everyday millions of people around the world visit Masjid Al-Haram, which is unknown to many because it is concealed by the controlled media in different parts of the world. On month of Ramadan and during Hajj this number increases to more than 4 million a day. The current maximum capacity of the Mosque is 900,000 inside, and 4,000,000 outside.
