MAKKAH: The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques has completed maintenance of the Holy Kaaba’s door and the silver frame that surrounds the Black Stone (Al-Hajar Al-Aswad).

Dr. Saad bin Mohammed Al-Mheimeid, acting assistant president, said the authorities oversaw all the work related to the Holy Kaaba in coordination with various government agencies, noting that the maintenance was done by a specialist team.

He added that the work embodied the Saudi leadership’s care for the Two Holy Mosques.

In August, Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal washed the Holy Kaaba. Participants in the ceremony included Deputy Makkah Gov. Prince Badr bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, and Acting Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Issam bin Saad bin Saeed.

Prince Khaled washed the inside of the Holy Kaaba with a mixture of Zamzam and rose water, amid high preventive measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.
