Haram Mosque Expansion in Makkah

Makkah mosque

“Haram Mosque” refers to the mosques in Makkah and Madinah. The Saudi government has embarked on a major project that seeks to expand the area of the Haram Mosque in Makkah to accommodate millions more pilgrims. This project has been in works for the past few years and the design of the new mosque is a few steps closer to being finalized.

The Masjid al-Haram, or the Great Mosque of Makkah, is the holiest site in Islam, located in the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. The mosque has been the subject of numerous expansions throughout its history to accommodate the growing number of pilgrims who visit it each year for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.

The most recent expansions involve substantial architectural and infrastructural enhancements aimed at increasing the mosque’s capacity, improving facilities, and ensuring a safer and more comfortable experience for the worshippers. These include the enlargement of prayer spaces, the construction of additional minarets and gates, the installation of modern amenities, and improvements in access routes and transportation systems.

Makkah Haram mosque

The new project is envisioned to complete in the next couple of years, with interim milestones that will be achieved from now until then.

According to “The Architect’s Journal“, Norman Foster (British architect) and Zaha Hadid (Iraqi architect) have been assigned to work on finalizing the architecture of the new mosque.

The new design of the mosque allows the Makkah Mosque to hold more than 3 million Muslim worshipers at a time.

The new design of the mosque will house other facilities around the area that include conference halls, residential buildings, command centers to control the flow of traffic, security and other services. The new infrastructure will continue to seek improvements over the current infrastructure by eventually making it extremely easy for pilgrims to get in and out of the Haram Mosque compound with fewer difficulties.

The picture above shows the newly proposed design. As can be seen, the multi-storey buildings are part of the new design.

About the Clock Tower in Makkah

The Abraj Al-Bait Endowment, or the Clock Tower as it’s more commonly known, is a remarkable and highly recognizable structure that forms part of the King Abdulaziz Endowment Project, located just a few steps away from the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca. Standing at a staggering height of approximately 601 meters (1,972 feet), the Clock Tower holds the title of being the third tallest building and the tallest clock tower in the world.

The clock face itself, prominently displayed on each of the tower’s four sides, is among the largest in the world, and it’s illuminated in the evening, making it visible from miles away. The Tower houses a shopping mall, numerous luxurious hotels and residences, and the Clock Tower Museum, which occupies the top four floors of the tower and offers an engaging journey through the history of timekeeping and the development of clocks.

Makka clock tower

While the Clock Tower adds a modern architectural element to the city’s skyline, it also serves a practical purpose by helping pilgrims keep track of prayer times, a critical aspect of Islamic religious observances. It stands as an emblem of the blend of deep-rooted Islamic tradition and modern architectural innovation in Mecca.

As we can see, these ambitious expansion projects have significantly transformed the landscape of the Masjid al-Haram, reflecting both its historical significance and its future-facing vision. The Saudi government, recognizing the mosque’s role as a global center for Islamic worship, has prioritized creating a balance between maintaining the site’s sacredness and cultural heritage, while integrating advanced technologies and architectural innovation.

Key to these expansions are considerations for environmental sustainability, crowd management, and accessibility. These enhancements have not only greatly increased the mosque’s capacity to accommodate millions more worshippers, but have also aimed to significantly improve the overall experience for the millions of international pilgrims who travel to Mecca each year, reinforcing the mosque’s standing as a symbol of unity, peace, and spiritual renewal in the Islamic world.

But at the same time, we also hope that all muslim leaders of the wolrd, especially King Abdullah who leads the wealthiest Muslim nation, will gather strength and resources to help all muslims around the world who are being oppressed, especially our Palestinian brothers, a mere stone throw away from the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Many of us here feel that it a desecration of the holy sites. Most people don’t know that modernisation comes at the cost of demolishment of numerous historical sites around the Haram. Personally I’m sad and horrified at the new design – it looks like any other modern western city.

    While it is crtainly praiseworthy to expand the area to accomodate a larger number of pilgrims, thought should have beenngiven to some other factors

    First and foremost is to maintain the sanctity and mystique of the Holy Haram. Surrounding it by tall towering buildings so out of character certainly is not going to do that. Secondly all these new expensive buildings will be out of reach of the common and poorer pilgrims. they will have to find affordable accomodation far away from the Haram. just image the inconvenience and problems, specially for children. women, old and sick people

    May Allah guide us always

    I cannot resist giving a reply to this monumental task of re-construction to accomodate millions of Muslim devotees who will wish to perform their annual obligation of pilgrimage. It is hoped that historical replica be preserved in miniature for the future generation to remember, comprehend, and reflect on.
    May Allah preserved in good health, be empowered, and be guided accordingly all those who planned and are working to accomplish this colossal task of accommodation.
    His Highness King Abdullah deserves blessings from Allah for this noble task.
    While undertaking this greatest task of re-construction, I am hoping and praying that all Muslim leaders will unite and work as true Muslims for the Muslim ummah. Modernity is not a hindrance toward the realisation of the consummation of a true
    working Muslim ummah. Let us not be dictated by the power of our ego. We will never prosper if we build on satanic desires. Our religion is peace and we must build on the premise of peace.

    Salam alaekum,
    I performed the last hajj and it was as if i should not go back to my country – especially when i saw the prophet’s mosque in Medina – despite some of the (normal) hardship that i went through and it was due to the peace and blessing that Allah (SWT) put in the holy land. And now that the mosque will be expanded to make hajj more comfortable for pilgrims, it is my hope and prayer that Allah will use it to forge co-operation among muslims and strenghten us to subdue the challenges that we are faced with.
    Also, i want to pray that Allah should give our enemies the patience and ability to understand the religion of Islam and the feeling of muslims. This is so because, i believe, they are waging war against us because they do not understand what Islam stands for otherwise they, naturally, will be on our side striving hard to remove all forms of kufr from the surface of the earth.

In essence, with increase population of people coming to Makkah for Hajj, there is need for constant expansion.

  • Abdul-Haleem F. Link Reply

    Asalaamu Alaikum. I have no doubt that the intention of the custodians of the two most holy places on the face of the earth is good and pure. But since my HAJJ in 2006 the cost of making the HAJJ has more than doubled. The average hard working Muslim can no longer expect to make this sacred journey to perform a pillar of our deen. From what I see of these plans it looks as if only the richest among us will be able to afford such grand accommodations and may not even be able to get close enough to the Kabbah to see it with binoculars. I have to say I do not have a good feeling about the expansion plans I see here. Please consider a much much more modest expansion if any at all. Then make modest accommodations for the millions who would like to attend HAJJ. We do no need any more grand excess such as the Meccah Towers looming over the most beloved Masjid Haram. The rest of the world is drunk with excess and now they are about to collapse. Please, let us not fall in line with them. Forgive me if I have offended anyone. It was not my intention to offend. But please, consider a much more modest expansion with the average working Muslim in mind.
    May Allah bless us all and show us the right path. Ameen.

The other issue is that we need to on priority ,all Muslim nations, put together work out the solution for Palestinian issue when so many millions of our sisters and brothers, elders and children are struggling everyday, do we need to expand beyond what is required in the immediate future.

    Subhan Allah! I am living in this holy land for almost 20 years, and when i compared masjid al-Haram before? its 10 times much better… because of new expansion and improvements. I am so lucky, i am here in this holy place and thank you for our King Abdullah, for he is not only helping and loving his fellow Saudi’s but also as expats! We indeed very lucky, MashaAllah. I wish i could live here more years to come and bring back my children here to visit their birthplace and perform their Islamic rights. May Allah bless Saudi Arabia and the pilgrims.

    Im all for the expansion of the holy masjid, subhanallah the number of pilgrims performing hajj and umrah is growing each year and therefore an absolute essential need for the extension….But, my only concern is that, I feel we are losing the sense of spirituality and its originality is being lost by the erection of tall luxury hotels and the ultra-modern design structual extension to the masjid itself….The current design of the masjid as it stands looks masha’allah beautiful, it should be extended by all means but the original design should be kept and not go for the lavish unneccessary designs just so it can blend with the 21st century developments.

    this is good leadership rabbana ta qabbalminna wa minkum

  • This is indeed a fullfiling effort in the consciousness of the need to grow Islam in our own little way as it is “Allah’s religion” of peace that He has given us to tap His blessings from.
    May ‘Allah’ swt help the muslim ummah to be partakers in this lifetime rewarding fullfilment.
    May ‘Allah’ (swt) help us through our journey to becoming ‘Muminin’, that our living & dieing may be to the glory of ‘Alah'(swt)
    Long live Islam!, Long live Saudi Arabia & King Abdullah!!

    Is the photo shown a plan of what the mosque will look like in the future? It looks ridiculous. It doesn’t even look like a mosque! Yes, I acknowledge that the mosque needs to expand with the number of pilgrims increasing but this is the wrong design for a holy mosque like this. It looks like a group of dominoes with the twin towers at the back. I totally back and support what Zam (#125) said. The ATKINS design is the one that stands out as a clear winner in regards to design, originality and accommodation.
