Comment[edit]

Here's a superb picture of a man sewing writing on the Kiswah. Can't find anything on the copyright though. ---Mpatel (talk) 14:42, August 13, 2005 (UTC)

It would seem like a slamdunk to get permission to post pictures of the kiswah manufactory, but I'm afraid that any requests would be bumped to a higher level, where they would be vetted by an 80-year-old Saudi prince who had never used the Internet and had the deepest suspicions of the infidel Wikipedia. But we we could certainly try. It seems like a perfect PR opportunity for the Saudis. Zora 20:53, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

I updated the Kiswah article as much as I could. So basically every thing you see, excluding 'The Kiswah is a cloth covering the kaaba' is what I did, and not to good of a job at it, so PLEASE up date this as much as y'all can--Maliki 786 01:27, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Ex nihil 07:17, 8 February 2006 (UTC) Some of the key events in this article would be greatly enhanced if they had dates attached. I found this very interesting but left with no sense of place in time.

There was a few minor spelling errors which i corrected.

Have there been any attempts at stealing this through history? Zeldakitten, aka Zeyra to some. Discuss edits and alike here. 21:36, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
