Kiswah, or the altering of the ‘Ghilaf-e-Kaaba,’ takes place every year before Eid-ul-Adha. For the rest of the year, people spend efforts to make the new Ghilaf . Shaista Lodhi was allowed to work on the new Ghilaf-e-Kaaba this year
Shaista Lodhi shared her experience working on the new Ghilaf in a vlog. Her Umrah journey in Ramadan included this experience. Shaista Lodi said she received a call from the factory that creates Ghilaf-e-Kaaba in a video broadcast by Makkah. Even though she does not believe she is worthy of participating in the stitching of the Ghilaf-e-Kaaba, she expressed her gratitude that it has happened. Shaista, the host of the television show, paid a visit to the factory, where she assisted in the stitching of the Ghilaf-e-Kaaba.
Aside from the very unique experience, the vlog also covered her Umrah journey. According to the performer, she had been waiting for her call to Umrah for a long time and had finally been allowed to do so now. Shaista Lodhi also led the fans to the Makkah Museum, where she showed them images of the Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawarrah Muqadasats.
