Muslims in Brunei can now own luxurious property in Mecca, through the Abraj Al-Bait project, which is a complex of seven high-rise blocks located about 100 metres from Masjidil Haram.
The objective of the project is to gather funds for the two Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina.
"Profits from this project after 24 years will be used for the benefit of the two mosques," said Roslan Osman, project director of the Singapore-based Oasis Properties Pte Ltd.
"We are the principal marketing agent in Southeast Asia for two towers in Abraj Al-Bait, namely the Hajar and Zamzam Towers. We are also pioneers in bringing property from Makkah Al Mukaramah into Southeast Asia."
The suites in Abraj Al-Bait are elegantly furnished in line with the standards of 5-star hotels. Designed to correspond to the religious milieu of Mecca, the entrance of the Abraj Al-Bait opens exactly to the open prayer area outside the Masjidil Haram.
There are a total of 36 elevators in Abraj Al-Bait to serve both residents and visitors efficiently, as well as state-of-the art heating and air-conditioning systems to keep them in comfort.
There will also be a grand shopping centre, with 70,000 square metres of floor space, featuring a wide range of restaurants and shops of well-known brands.
