Al Masjid Al Haram

Before the time of Hadrat Umar (my Allah be pleased with him Masjid Al-Hraam did not have any walls , around the kaba was a small square which was surrounded by houses. the Caliph Umar had some of the houses demolished and had a one meter- high wall built around the ka'abah and therefor Masjid Al Hraam was buit. Masijid Al-Hraam was restored verious times.
Al- Masjid al Haraam was the first house of worship ordained for mankind on Earth. Allah (Swt) has placed several blessings in it , for e.g.the Salaat in al -Masjid al-Hraam has incresed rewards in comparison to the Salaat prayed anywhere else.

The Messenger of Allah peace be upon him said One Salaat in my Mosue is better  than 1000 Salaat anywhere else except in aL-Masjid al Haraam.One Salaat in al-Masjid Al-Haraam is better than 100 Salaat in my Masjid ( Musnad Imam Ahmed ) 

A primary purpose of the expansion of the Two Holy Mosques was to meet the needs of the ever-increasing numbers of pilgrims.

The total number of pilgrims performing Hajj in 2000 was 1,733,785 (Ministry of Hajj Information Committee, March 2000). This figure includes pilgrims from inside as well as those from outside the Kingdom.
In 2001, there were 1,363,992 pilgrims from abroad performing Hajj, bringing the total number of pilgrims for 2001 to 1,804,800.   Each year, the Kingdom harnesses all its resources to facilitate the pilgrimage to the Holy Places. Minutes of the weekly council meetings, chaired by King Fahd or his deputy, show a preoccupation with the Hajj and a determination to spare no effort or expense in making the Hajj as safe and secure as possible.
