آج میرے والدین زندہ ہوتے تو بہت خوش ہوتے کہ انکے گناہگار بیٹے کو اللہ تعالیٰ نے اس سال کے نئے غلافِ کعبہ پر سونے کے دھاگے سے ایک ٹانکا لگانے کی سعادت دی ہے۔ یاحَیُّ یاقَیُّوم۔ pic.twitter.com/zd17qOFH1J

Kiswa, the cloth that covers the Holy Kaaba, was changed by the staff of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet Mosque on Saturday, the first day of the new Islamic year. This is an annual tradition.
Kiswa was put up for the first time on the first day of the holy month of Muharram. Before, it was on the morning of Dhul Hijjah 9 during Hajj.
A team from the King Abdulaziz Complex for Holy Kaaba Kiswa was chosen to replace the Kaaba’s Kiswa. As the old Kiswa was being taken apart, the new one was being put together.
