Engineer M Kamal Isma’eel: The Selfless Mastermind of Makka and Madinah’s Holy Mosques, Rewarded in Faith Not Riyals

Dr. Muhammad Kamal Isma’eel: A Century of Selfless Devotion to the Holy Mosques

Dr. Muhammad Kamal Isma’eel, an Egyptian engineer and architect born in 1908, is revered for his selfless contributions to the expansion of the Makkah and Madinah Mosques. Achieving academic excellence at a young age, he notably refused any payment for his work on these sacred sites, considering it his service to Allah.

His dedication extended to sourcing special heat-absorbing marble from Greece, ensuring both projects’ success through a series of providential events. After his wife passed away, Kamal’s devotion turned even more towards worship, spending over a century in service to the holy mosques, while humbly avoiding fame and fortune.

He was an Egyptian engineer and architect who preferred to be away from public limelights, unknown to many:

He was the first engineer who undertook the planning and implementation of the (Haramain) Makkah and Madinah mosques expansion project.

He refused to receive any payment for his engineering design and architectural supervision, despite efforts by King Fahad and Bin Laden Company.

When he returned a cheque of millions he told Bakar Bin Ladan:

“Why should I accept money (for my work) at the two sacred mosques, how will I face Allah (on the Day of Judgement?).”
