‘Holy Kaaba Exhibition’ opens at Qatar National Library

By QLNews

If you’re prepping for Ramadan and looking forward to enriching your knowledge of Islam, why not have a look at a very interesting exhibition underway at Qatar National Library (QNL) until October 1?

The ‘Holy Kaaba Exhibition’ that opened yesterday offers an exquisite look at the history of the cube-structured building, which is at the center of Islam’s most sacred mosque in the city of Makkah and is the most sacred site of Islam.

Over 50 carefully curated items comprising photos, art works, books and manuscripts are featured in the exhibition offering deeper insights into the history of the Holy Kaaba.

“The theme of faith is in focus at the library this month as we begin to prepare for Ramadan, and we invite the public to come and visit the exhibition and interact with these valuable historical texts, manuscripts and rare items,” said Abeer Al Kuwari, acting director of Distinctive Collections at the library.

“Through these events, the library seeks to widen knowledge and understanding. We hope that, as visitors reflect on the historical roots of the Holy Ka’aba, the experience will add a fresh dimension to their understanding of Islam as a religion,” she added.

The exhibit offers visitors a great opportunity to learn about the stages of the Holy Kaaba’s construction and its architectural features and adornment. 

The items on display draw attention to the religious and spiritual significance of the Holy Kaaba and reflect the deep effect the site has had on visitors for many centuries.

In addition to serving as an educational opportunity for visitors, the exhibition affirms the QNL’s influence as an institution of reference for Islamic history and the Arab culture, regionally and beyond.

During this month, as well as in the coming days of Ramadan, visitors to QNL will be able to engage in activities that highlight topics connected to faith.
