Islamic Museum in Makkah II

July 4, 2010 at 3:12 pm 7 comments

This museum showcases astonishing pieces of art work and decorative patterns which were once hallmarks of the two Holy Masjids in Makkah and Madinah. One would feel delighted to see how the past and present rulers who ruled the Holy places bestowed their best effort to adorn the Holy places. Even at eras when there was no abundant wealth than of current times rulers had spent good enough to keep sanity of these places.

We might offer thanks and prayers to all those who constructed and decorated the Holy places starting from the great Prophet Abul Anbiya Ibrahim Alihi Ssalam till the current kingdom ruling the Holy places who is offering their best to enlarge and improvise the setups there. The prayers should continue to those who might put a hand or effort in expanding and beautifying these Holy Places in future. And for all pilgrims who treated and treating the sanity of these places intact!
