During our recent Umrah trip we got chance to visit Islamic museum in Makkah named as ‘Exhibition on buildings of two great Harams’. It is situated some 10 minutes driving distance from Masjidul Haram in old Jeddah road. The factory exclusive for weaving curtains (كسوة) of Kaaba(كعبة) and Hujratu Shareefa (حجرة الشريفة) is just wall away from this exhibition center.
Thanks to our friends working in Makkah who guided us to this place and many other special places which are normally out of reach of common pilgrims. As we planned our trip without any hamla (حملة) we could freely move around the holy places during break times of Prayers at Haram Shareef. But, we had only five days in Makkah and we ran of time as we couldn’t reach many places explained by our guide.
