Dubai: UAE astronaut Sultan AINeyadi has shared a stunning video of Makkah, Madinah, and Jeddah captured from space. The video shows the three cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sparkling in the night, with the lights of the Masjid Al Haram shining bright in the center of Makkah, even visible from space.
AINeyadi, who has been on a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station, posted the video on his official Twitter account on Monday. The video captured attention worldwide, as AINeyadi is known for sharing amazing images and videos from space.
In the video, AINeyadi moves the camera towards Madinah and describes it as the city to which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) immigrated with his beloved people. The image shows the twinkling lights of the city and its many roads.
The astronaut then shifts the camera towards Jeddah, referring to it as the Bride of the Red Sea. Finally, he points the camera towards Makkah, calling it the holy city where the message of Islam took root with the Prophet (PBUH).
AINeyadi is awed by the sight and describes it as fascinating, saying the three cities are shining like stars and that it is one of the most beautiful views he has ever seen.
