Giant clock tower in holy city of Makkah

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: “My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young.” — Qur’an [17:23-24]    
from    mohdali naseer


The clock reflects a goal by some Muslims to replace the 126-year-old Universal Time standard — originally called Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) — with Makkah mean time.  Time (GMT) — with Makkah mean time.
 Saudi Arabia will test what it is billing as the world’s largest clock in the holy city of Makka  during Ramadan.
Muslims worldwide face during daily prayers and is part of Saudi efforts to develop the city visited by millions of pilgrims every year
Three-month test run will start during the first week of Ramadan.
