Saudi Women Make History by Joining Kaaba Kiswa Ceremony

In a groundbreaking moment, Saudi women from the General Authority for the Care of the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque participated in the symbolic changing of the Kaaba's Kiswa, marking a historic first.

This ceremony, traditionally conducted exclusively by men, saw female employees actively involved in the preparatory stages.

While women assisted in transporting and handing over parts of the Kiswa, the actual replacement process within the courtyard remained managed by an all-male team.

The General Authority for the Care of the Two Holy Mosques confirmed the unprecedented participation of several women in this revered ritual, showcasing their pivotal role in the initial phases.
