He used to feel content for this honorable job. In every gathering or public place, where he used to share his view with people, he used to talk a major portion about his experience to be a weaver of Kiswa.

Al Maliki was a polite and well-mannered person who was famous for his humble nature and courtesy among his colleagues, juniors, and students. He was born in 1930 in a small village near Makkah.

The world witnessed beautiful Kiswa designs for  5 decades made under his supervision. I request each one of you to pray for his eternal life.
