We Need Your Help: Fundraiser 2021

Hi there! Until February 2021 all the costs were being funded by the volunteers, and we do not run ads. But recently due to the rise in costs it is becoming difficult to cover the costs. If everyone reading this would donate just $5, our fundraiser would be over in less than an hour.

No donation is small, you can make your contributions here. :)

Bab al-Umrah

The Umrah gate (باب العمرة) is located directly to the west of Ka'ba, on the north-western corner of the Mataf area. Bab al-Umrah is one of the five main entrances into the old compound of Masjid al-Haram.

circa 100 CE

The Umrah Gate was renovated circa 2018/19 CE during the King Abdullah Expansion. The previous gate, built during the second Saudi expansion was demolished and re-built on the same design of bab al-Malik. The Ka'bah, located to the east, is directly visible from this gate.
