The Green Dome is a green-coloured dome built above the tomb of the Islamic prophet Muhammad ﷺ and early Muslim leaders, Abu Bakr and Umar. The dome is located in the south-east corner of Al-Masjid al-Nabawi ﷺ (Mosque of the Prophet) in Medina. The dome was painted green colour first time in 1837 hence it is known as green dome.

@howdy sir. There’s a new automotive art form catching on in Saudi Arabia, and it has nothing to do with driving. It’s called “Tahjir,” or “Stoning,” and it involves putting cars on pedestals by stacking piles of bricks or stones underneath them.
The most common types of food and beverages are, Kabsa, Quran, Mtaziz, Motabbaq, Masoob, Mandi, Arikah, Assidah. Delicious food makes the world neglected in human eyes. The tongue comes out very long before these foods, and tells us forgot the bride and the groom, sometimes food says please do mercy on me ha ha ha. I hope @jeanchenautexas you won’t miss these foods when you will visit any Saudi Arabians wedding.
