The “Al Sharai Bridge” hides the signs of the Grand Mosque’s borders


During a field tour on the borders of the Grand Mosque in the east of the holy capital, Al-Madina observed the lack of clarity of the signs indicating the boundaries of the Haram for those coming from the Sharia Schemes Bridge in the middle of King Faisal Road.

The height of the recently constructed bridge caused the signs not to appear sufficiently high, especially for those wishing to perform Hajj and Umrah rituals, and despite the presence of competent authorities concerned with following up on such problems, they did not move to address the problem of the lack of clarity of the border signs of the Haram.

The importance of the signs of the boundaries of the Grand Mosque stems from the fact that the boundaries are set by spatial and scientific signs, and there are two monuments at the entrances to Makkah, so that those who go to Makkah and outside it can see them, and on one of them is written the beginning of the boundaries of the Haram, and on the other side of the monument is written the end of the boundaries of the Haram. Whereas, the Haram still has built signs in its four sides, including its borders to the north from the direction of Medina, at Al-Tan`im or the Mosque of Umrah, the distance is estimated at 7 km, and its borders to the west from the side of the governorate of Jeddah, at Al-Alamein or Al-Hudaybiyah, and the distance is estimated at 18 km, and its borders to the east on the one side We find in the Shari’a plans, and the distance is estimated at approximately 14.5 km, and its borders to the south from the side of Arafah at Namira, and the distance between it and the Grand Mosque is estimated at about 20 km.
