Stages of covering the Kaaba

In detail, the three stages of changing the kiswah included complex and elaborate operations, starting from the initial preparations until implementing the changing of the kiswah after midnight on the first of Muharram. 159 qualified craftsmen from the people of the Kingdom participated in this ceremony, as they made 56 gilded pieces on the kiswah using the finest materials and finest threads. In accordance with the highest standards of quality and accuracy.

The covering of the Kaaba was decorated with the clear, complex Thuluth script, which is an integral part of the visual aesthetic of the Arabic language. This type of script was used to write verses and supplications on the covering in various sizes and distinct artistic forms.

In addition, the Kaaba was covered from the inside with a green cloth decorated with Quranic verses and selected supplications, reflecting the care and precision in every detail of this solemn process.

This event that Saudi Arabia witnessed is an important step towards development and progress, as women’s participation in such traditional events represents evidence of the social and cultural change that the Kingdom has witnessed in recent years.
