Quanta Laser Restoration of The Holy Mantle of Prophet Mohammad (May Peace Rest On Him)
The Holy Mantle, Hırka-i Şerif, or Burda, is an item of clothing that was given as a gift by Prophet Muhammad (May Piece Rest on Him) Ka’b ibn Zuhayr, whose children sold it to Muawiyah I, the founder of the Umayyad dynasty. After the fall of the Umayyads, the Mantle went to Baghdad under the Abbasids, to Cairo under the Mamlucks, and finally moved by Selim I to Topkapi Palace in 1595.
The Mantle, which represents one of the Holiest Relics for Islam, has been restored, together with several other antique curtains and carpets, 2010 on. Works were completed at the end of 2012.Pictures taken through an optical microscope:
