This is one of my recent bespoke and custom made designs. I named it “Alcantara”. Alcantara is a microfiber material primarily used in the design, fashion, accessories, consumer electronics, automotive and marine industries.
This is the entrance of the Ka’bah on its eastern side. Originally it was at ground level but was raised when the Quraysh rebuilt the Ka’bah. When Ebrahim (upon him be peace) built the Ka’bah, the openings of the Ka’bah were on ground level. People entered from the eastern opening and exited through the western opening. Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) once asked the Prophet (ﷺ) what reason the Quraysh had for raising the door above the ground. The Prophet (ﷺ) replied, “Your people did it so that they could permit into the Ka’bah only those people whom they approved of and could prevent those whom they pleased. Had your people not been recently removed from ignorance and had I not feared that they would be averse to change, I would have included the Hateem within the Ka’bah and brought the door level with the ground.”
