Kaaba kiswah lowered as Saudi permits children free from Covid-19 to perform umrah with parents





Tonight, the Kiswah of the Kaaba has been lowered.  This is in line with the tradition to close the hajj season and also the  1442 Hijri.

The development is an annual tradition after the Hujjaj had departed and towards the close of the Islamic year.
Usually, it is raised ahead of the Hajj season so the Kiswah is not damaged. Despite the pandemic and no access to the Kabah, this yearly tradition is being maintained.  As at the time of writing this report, the kiswah has been lowered.
