Large Framed Kiswah al Saadat (Ghilaf) from the Sacred Chamber (Hujrah) of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in Masjid al-Nabawi, Medina
Rumi’s Garden humbly presents a 15 x 15 cm Kiswah al-Saadat (Curtain of Bliss) fragment that 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.
It was in the miraculous oasis of Medina - gentle, hospitable and full of bounties - that the last years of the life of the Blessed Prophet were spent, where the first Islamic community was established, where the Prophet died, and where many of his companions and closest members of his family are buried. The earth of Medina is blessed by the fact that it contains the body of God’s last chosen prophet, a blessedness that one feels while walking on its hallowed ground. No wonder that in days of old many a pious man would dismount from his horse a long way outside of the city and would walk the rest of the way in order to be respectful of the land that contains in its bosom the earthly remains of such a precious being. Even a generation ago, Medina was like a vast garden, with majestic palm trees surrounding the houses and markets of the city, giving an impression of plentitude and bounty. There is a feminine quality to the city in the sense that it is not harsh but gentle. Even its people display the trait of gentleness, reflecting the character of the Prophet about whom the Noble Qur’an has said: “O thou art of a tremendous Character.” After all, this is the abode of the Prophet dominated by his mausoleum and mosque.
To be a caretaker of the Kiswah al-Saadat, which has always been considered to be one of the most important of the Prophetic relics, is to actively partake in the baraka of the Prophet Muhammad ﷻ. More importantly, the kiswah fragment should always be a reminder for its caretaker to live as the Prophet and his companions did, within his sunnah and within Muhammadan light (Nur al Muhammadi).
