Abdul Wahab Named New Key Holder of Holy Kaaba

Abdul Wahab bin Zain Al Abidin Al Shaibi has been appointed as the new chief key holder of the Holy Kaaba, announced by Inside the Haramain on June 24.

This appointment follows the recent passing of Sheikh Saleh Al Shaiba on June 22, who served as the 109th guardian of the Kaaba and succeeded the companion Uthman ibn Talha.

Abdul Wahab has expressed his dedication to fulfilling his responsibilities under the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.

Traditionally, the key is entrusted to the eldest member of the family. His initial task will be to oversee the handing over of the Kiswah of the Kaaba on the first day of Muharram.
