Kiswah (Arabic: كسوة الكعبة, kiswat al-ka'bah) is the cloth that covers the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is draped annually on the 9th day of the month of Dhu al-Hijjah, the day pilgrims leave for the plains of Mount Arafat during the Hajj.The term kiswah is Arabic for 'pall', the cloth draped over a casket, and is a cognate of the Hebrew word kisui. 🎁ISLAMABAD: The Saudi Embassy held a spectacular display of Ghilaf-e-Kaaba and Parda Baab-ul-Kaaba at The Centaurus on Wednesday.
The exhibition is a first-ever venture in Pakistan and The Centaurus claims the honour of being the pioneer.
The ten-day exhibition would display the holy Parda Baab-ul-Kaaba for the people of Pakistan. The Parda Baab-ul-Kaaba being displayed is 5.1 metres long and three metres wide, illuminated with gold-plated embossed calligraphy of verses from Holy Quran. The 20 metres long and six metres wide °🎁 (History ) """° The first time the Kaaba was clothed was during the rule of the Jurhum tribe during the visit of King Tuba of Himyar (in present-day Yemen). Muhammad (PBUH) and the Muslims in Mecca did not participate in the draping of the Kaaba until the conquest of the city at 630 AD (7 AH), as the ruling tribe, Quraish, did not allow them to do so. When Mecca was taken by the Muslims, they decided to leave the Kiswah as it was until a woman lighting incense in the Kaaba accidentally set fire to the Kiswah. Muhammad PBUH then draped it with a white Yemeni cloth.
