PostSubject: Mecca, the Holiest City in Islam   13/11/2010, 9:00 pm

Mecca, also called Makkah, is a city in Saudi Arab. It is theholiest city in Islam, which is considered to be very sacred to Muslimsfaith. There is a saying that goes: “anyone who is born a Muslim, mustvisit Mecca at least once to wash his or her sins”. It is veryinteresting to know that almost two to three million Hajjis (pilgrimageto Mecca) pay visit to this city every year. Mecca today is facing bothgood and bad times. Good times because its popularity and bad timesbecause of infrastructure problem.Mecca is the home of Masjid Al Haram. Initially, it was a place fortrading during the 7th century. Also, till 1924, it was governed by thelocal sheriffs’. After that, it saw a lot of modernization in its sizeand structure. Today, it is ruled by the local municipality of Meccawith a Mayor who is directly appointed by the Government of SaudiArabia.The history of Mecca takes one back to 2000 BC, with some peoplebelieving that Abraham built the Kaaba with his son, Ishmael. Over theyears, this place had almost three hundred and sixty idols. Mecca todayhas the biggest Mosque in the world. Everyday, daily prayers areoffered in it and another step is being taken by the government torenovate the entire place so that it can accommodate 900000 people at atime.By Saudi law, non-Muslims are forbidden to enter Mecca, which is strictly enforced by the government.
