Riyadh (Agencies): Ghusl-e-Kaaba ceremony held at Masjid al-Haram in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
Makkah’s Governor Prince Khalid al-Faisal performed the practice using Zam Zam water mixed with rose water. The interior walls were cleaned with a white cloth dipped in rose, ‘Aab-e-zam zam’ and musk perfumes.
After the cleaning, the floor and the walls were dried again with white cloth and tissues.
The ceremony was attended by Imam-e-Kaaba, ambassadors of Islamic countries and other significant personalities.
The ceremonial washing of Kaaba is held following the example of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who washed it after entering the Kaaba at the time of the conquest of Makkah.
