This has been a tradition that happens every year in the month of Dhul’ Hijjah shortly before the commencement of the Hajj.
Last year, the annual ritual of changing Kiswah (Ghilaf-e-Kaaba) was held on Sunday night on July 18 (8th Zul-Hijjah) at Masjid al-Haram in Saudi Arabia, where mask-clad pilgrims had gathered to perform the Hajj amid the pandemic.
