Double-Sided Round Pendant containing the Kiswah Covering from the Holy Ka'aba and the Kiswah al-Saadat from the Sacred Chamber of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in Masjid an-Nabawi
Rumi's Garden is tremendously honored to present a double-sided round pendant consisting of cross-sections of the Holy Ka’aba kiswah from Mecca and Kiswah al-Saadat from Medina.
The fragment of the black Holy Ka’aba kiswah (كسوة الكعبة) comes from a larger panel that covered the House of God, and was then removed one year later on the 9th of Dhu al-Hijjah, 1433 hijri during the annual kiswah changing ceremony.
The Kiswah al-Saadat (Curtain of Bliss) comes from the Sacred Chamber of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Hujrah al-Nabawia al-Sharifa; الحجرة النبوية الشريفة) in Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (Al Madinah Al-Munawwarah). The panels of the contemporary kiswah are green and white in color and the full curtain surrounds the burial tombs of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, Abu Bakr as-Saddiq (RAA), and Umar ibn al-Khattab (RAA). The fragment of the Kiswah al-Saadat comes from a larger panel that was used inside the Sacred Chamber.
With a quarter of the world’s population being followers of Islam, the black stone cube-shaped building known as the Holy Ka'aba, which stands at the center of Mecca’s sacred mosque, the Masjid al-Haram, is the fulcrum (qibla) which we face in our five daily prayers. It is also an obligation for every abled believer to visit the Ka'aba at least once in their lifetime. During the annual pilgrimage season from the 8th to the 12th of Dhu al-Hijjah, the 12th and last month of the Islamic calendar, millions of visitors journey to Saudi Arabia to visit Mecca’s Great Mosque, the holiest site in the Islamic world. Most also visit Medina, the second holiest city, where our Beloved Master, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, is buried.
Like the two testimonies of faith (the Shahadatan), the world of Mecca, which contains the House of God, and the world of Madina, which is the city of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, are brought together in a double-sided pendant with one face containing the Holy Ka’aba kiswah relic and the other, the Kiswah al-Saadat.
