Saudi Arabia has planned to build the tallest tower in the world to be named as Kingdom Tower at a height of one kilometer worth the US$1.2 billion. That will surpass Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. It is scheduled to begin construction by January next year.

While Muslim nations glorify their prosperity by building tallest towers in the world, the other nations strive to build institutions of higher learning. Arab world, despite being so rich in resources, has failed to establish the like of Harvard or Oxford University.

  1. Hollow pride in the holy land
    would fall apart with big bang.
    Alas ! I fear the spectre of foreign pollute,
    and my king would be powerless and brute.
    O God ! gave them money, now give them mind,
    Bless my Saudi brothers and holy land – Aameen !


  2. Thanks for your valuable expression of thoughts in poetic form. Hope your concern in the form of prayer is heard by Allah.
