Hera Shabbir

Get ready for two spectacular and sacred events at the Kaaba this July!

On Muharram 1, 1446 (July 7, 2024), the Kaaba’s iconic Kiswah (black cloth covering) will be ceremoniously replaced

As announced by the Two Holy Mosque official X account, this awe-inspiring tradition is a highlight for many, symbolizing the new Islamic year. But that’s not all! Just two weeks later, on Muharram 15, 1446 (July 21, 2024), the Kaaba will undergo its annual washing ceremony. This deeply spiritual event involves cleaning the Kaaba’s interior with a mixture of Zamzam water and rosewater, symbolizing purification and devotion.

You can catch both ceremonies live on Makkah TV
