Rumi's Garden is honored to present a 9 x 9 cm authentic fragment of the black Holy Ka’aba kiswah (كسوة الكعبة) that comes from a larger panel that covered the House of God and was then removed on the 9th of Dhu al-Hijjah, 1433, during an annual ceremony that takes place at Hajj.
The Holy Kaaba, also referred to as “The Sacred House” in the Holy Quran (5:2, 97), is the holiest site in Islam and the largest pilgrim destination in the world. The structure itself is a large cube-shaped building (approximately 50 feet high, 40 feet long, and 33 feet wide) made of cut stone. It is situated in the plaza of the Grand Mosque in Mecca. Its four corners point approximately to the four cardinal directions, with the famous black stone inserted in its eastern corner. Islamic literature has stated that the archangel Gabriel brought the Black Stone from Heaven to be attached to the Kaaba.
The Holy Kaaba is covered by a curtain (Kiswah al-Ka’aba) that throughout history has changed in color depending on the time period. Starting with the reign of Umar ibn al-Khattab, once the Hajj pilgrimage was over, the blessed kiswah was cut and distributed to pilgrims as a relic for its baraka and as a memorabilia item of their journey to The Sacred House.
As a reminder to always remain in remembrance of the majesty and compassion of Allah ﷻ, Rumi’s Garden is offering a beautifully framed 9 x 9 cm fragment of the Ka’aba kiswah placed in a golden 13 x 13 cm frame. We pray that the kiswah will support its caretaker to always move inwards towards their microcosmic qibla which is the Heart that contains all the mysteries of the mysteries of Heaven and earth. As Allah ﷻ says through the mouth of the Prophet ﷺ in a hadith Qudsi:
“Neither My Earth nor My Heavens can contain Me, but the heart of a Believing Servant, contains Me.”
