man atop CrescentIn a short video clip that has been shared on social networking sites since Monday, two Saudi men are seen resting at the highest point in Makkah, which is the golden crescent on the spire of the Abraj Al-Bait Towers (Mecca Royal Hotel Clock Tower).

The video clip shows Faisal Bin Laden, a businessman accompanied by another man sitting on the crescent of the clock tower in the evening Maghrib prayer, according to Sabq news.

A view of the Holy Ka’aba and the Holy Mosque from the top is also seen in the video clip.

While many people applauded the men for their adventurous feat, many others expressed unhappiness and dislike over the daring act. Critics said the stunts by the two young men might encourage others to risk their lives and do something similar.
