It was categorically predicted in Islamic literature by the Prophet of Islam that towards the end days the Arabs will compete in building tall buildings. That time is here as we earlier reported.
“The Hour will not be established-till the people of the desert (the camel shepherds) compete with one another in constructing high buildings.” –Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on the minor signs of the last day.
Projected to be completed in 2020, Saudi Arabia is building at $1.2 billion, the world’s potential tallest building, the Jeddah towers. Standing almost twice the height of US’ tallest building, one world trade center.
On being asked on the signs of the last day, the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentions: “You shall see the barefoot, naked, penniless shepherds competing in constructing high buildings.” This hadith describes people who become rich all of a sudden and then build not for need but only in competition.
Kingdom Tower (Arabic: برج المملكة Burj al Mamlakah), previously known as Mile-High Tower, (Arabic: برج الميل), is a skyscraper currently under construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia……. that will be located along the Red Sea on the north side of Jeddah. If completed as planned, the tower will reach unprecedented heights, becoming the tallest building in the world, as well as the first structure to reach the one-kilometre-high mark.
