Frequently asked questions.

From the beginning of this pandemic many have published articles on how people feel, adapt and live with this abnormal situation that impacted life either negatively or positively. However, I choose not to talk about this part of the pandemic because everyone has their own story with it. I’m just curious and want to ask unanswered questions to the health organizations.

Firstly, what will happen if health organizations stop announcing records and numbers on corona virus cases and deaths? Will that harm people in any serious way or will it benefit them? Secondly, did the rate of influenzas risen, decreased or stayed the same from the year of 2019 to the year of 2020? Why did we not make swaps for the influenza virus and made records to that?

I have many questions in mind but the most important ones that in my opinion should be answered are above. I feel that Health organizations did not consider that recording every case/death infected by COVID-19 would affect the mental health of individuals more than it could help it in any way. According to the world health organization influenza activity was reported at lower levels than expected for this time of the year, the question is why is that? Does that hint that what people might have called “influenza” for the past year could be corona virus but we haven’t made swaps and tests for that?

I know that COVID-19 is a serious pandemic and it does exist but I also know that the media has exaggerated in presenting what they call “facts”. I’m not a specialist nor a doctor but I’m an individual as many are that do have the right to know answers for any questions.

Most of the old and modern residences are concentrated in large cities of the kingdom. One of these cities is the capital - Riyadh. Famous palaces are the decoration of the city, its pride. Some of them have important political significance.

Here is a list of the most famous palaces:

Al-Yamama is the official residence of the current King of Saudi Arabia. It was built in a traditional oriental style. Now here is the office and headquarters of the monarch. This is a very beautiful and greatest building.

Al-Murabba is one of the oldest buildings in the capital. Its construction began in 1936 and was completed in 1945. This was necessary for members of the royal family and the royal court. The palace has been preserved as a living example of the Arab royal life of bygone days.

Tuvayk is a unique building, built in 1985 with the participation of the royal family and the UN. From the Tuvay Palace, formerly known as the Diplomatic Club, you can enjoy stunning views of Riyadh. The heart of the palace is a giant tent, the walls of which resemble stained glass windows. Inside the tent is like an oasis. The outdoor venue for events is in Arabic style.

Innovative gates for complete self-sterilization in the Grand Mosque

To prevent the spread of the terrible Crown virus, the Great Mosque uses advanced technology from the medical industry.

Examples of this are the “gates of self-sterilization” opened by the General Presidency of the Holy Mosque and the Mosque of the Prophet. This device is equipped with the latest technologies, such as self-disinfection of the whole person with an antiseptic spray, thermal imaging cameras to determine the temperature from a distance of 6 meters, as well as an intelligent screen for reading temperature. Also, these advanced gates can simultaneously read the temperature of several people, with a reading speed of up to one second. The innovative design technology of this device includes a disinfectant storage unit, thermal imaging cameras and smart monitors.

Before starting their work, the workers of the Great Mosque pass through the disinfecting gate, and after their use they are periodically disinfected.

This innovative portal is only an addition to the main preventive measures during the epidemic. The presidency installed such technologies in two sacred mosques.


Today the moon is perpendicular to the Kaaba

Today the moon will be perpendicular to the Kaaba. Mecca will witness a surprising and very special phenomenon.

A Saudi astronomer, an Indian mastermind, a member of the Arab Federation of Astronomy and Space, said that the phenomenon of orthogonality of the moon is found in many areas, but it is important to determine the direction of the qibla, orthogonality of bodies over the Kaaba, which is of great importance.

Since the moon is in the first square, the moment of orthogonality is in the area east of Mecca, night falls there, so it will be easy to see the moon and determine its direction, while there will be day to the west of Mecca, and it will be difficult to see the moon.


Stone Castle Qasr al-Farid (Qaṣr Al-Farīd)

One of the most unusual archaeological finds in Saudi Arabia is the tomb of Qasr al-Farid. It is carved from a huge stone and is located in the center of Madain Salih.

Carved in a giant boulder, Qasr al-Farid, or the “lonely castle”, is a delightful old building, truly beautiful and unique, it is deservedly one of the most mysterious architectural masterpieces in the world. The facade of an unusual building, began to be built in the 1st century AD, but was never completed.

To be precise, this is not a castle at all, but a tomb belonging to the ancient Nabatean city of Hegra. The Nabataeans had a special architectural technique: they carved tombs of stone from top to bottom, like Qasr al-Farid. That is why it is clear how, step by step, the sculptor created a masterpiece of architectural art.

Since the monument is not completed, it is easy to see below that the work of the sculptor becomes less skillful and accurate.

This unique building should be among the best archaeological monuments of history.
