The founder of the kingdom, King Abdulaziz Al Saud, had also entrusted the Al Badr family with the responsibility of preparing the door of Baitullah.

The door of Baitullah was made in 1398 AH (1977) and 280 kg of pure gold was used in it.

The Saudi government wanted a Muslim figure to design the door of the Baitullah because his name was to be written on the door.

Engineer Al-Jundi also has the honour of having his name inscribed on the door of Baitullah as a designer.
