This city is located in south of the Syrian capital Damascus.

It's population almost reach about 140000 people , it was said that it got this name
because one of the prophets passed by it and noted that it was covered with
greenness.
As mentioned Sapphire Hamwi other reasons.
Historically speaking , there was a closer reason for this name that this city was located
on the road linking Astana city (now Istanbul) and Medina city (or the Hijaz in general)
and the Ottoman successor was ordering to send pilgrims of Muslims (Hejjaj) leading Pasha Hajj,
going from Damascus groups who were taking al hajj al -shami across this city from Damascus to
Al-madena Al-monawara where people of Damascus and people of Al-madena meet to salute / be on the arrival of Pasha al hajj with mohamal al-sharif which contains a bundle of Al-kaaba covers which
was made in Damascus city then sent to cover by it the Kaaba before the pilgrimage season ,
and a bundle of gold to spend it on the service of the pilgrims from the Ottoman sultan.
The city was called Al Kiswah city according to this reason and as a celebration of Al- kaaba
covering which is going from Damascus.
