The cover of the Kaaba has been made 3 meters high in accordance with Hajj tradition.
According to the Saudi news agency, the Kaaba’s cover was raised 3 meters on Friday to take precautionary measures, and the lower part of the Kaaba was covered with 2 meters of white cloth on all four sides.
Every year during the Ramadan and Hajj seasons, the cover of the Kaaba is raised as a precautionary measure.
In this regard, the Haramin Sharif administration claims that pilgrims who visit the Kaaba are eager to touch and kiss the Kaaba’s cover, causing the cover to become festive, or that many people use blades to take the cover of the Kaaba with them. Or they cut it with a knife, so the administration raises the cover of the Kaaba every year.
Which notable individuals took part in the ceremony of raising the Kaaba’s cover?
Kaaba Imam Sheikh Abdul Sadis and his team took part in the ceremony of changing the lower part of the Kaaba’s cover.
The cover of the Kaaba was changed every year on the 9th of Dhul-Hajj, but in 2022, the cover of the Kaaba was changed on the first day of Muharram.
How much gold and silver are used to cover the Kaaba?
The cover of the Kaaba is made with 670 kg of real and black silk, 120 kg of gold, and 100 kg of silver foil, and the cover of the Kaaba is made up of 6 parts.
