    Wearing turban (forgotten sunnah)

    Turban is a sunnah of our prophet s.a.w but generally we have left wearing the turban.

    I've noticed that most of the scholars also don't wear turban whereas they enjoin the people to follow the sunnah of prophet s.a.w.

    It is related:“On the day of the Conquest of Makkah, the Prophet ‏s.a.w‏ entered Makkah, and he was wearing a black turban (imāmah).”
    [Tirmidhī, Jami and Shamā’il]

    In another narration: The Prophet ‏s.a.w called for Ali (Allah be pleased with him) on the Day of Ghadīr Khūm and wrapped a turban on his head and hung the tail draped down Ali’s back. The Prophet (‏s.a.w‏ then said, “Wear turbans for indeed the turban is a symbol of Islam and it is a barrier between the Muslims and the Polytheist!”

    [Abu Nuaym: Marifat as-Sahābah from ʿAbdur-Rahman ʿAdī al-Bahrāni]

    It has also been related: The Prophet ‏s.a.w‏ said, “Adopt wearing the turban for indeed it is the mantle of the Angels and hang the tail of it on your backs!”

    [Tabarānī, al-Kabīr from Ibn ʿUmar; Bayhaqī, Shuʿab al-Īman]

    Also narrated: The Prophet (ﷺ) came with thobes from charity and distributed them amongst his companions and said, “Wear turbans and differentiate yourselves from the nations that proceeded you!”
    [Bayhaqī, Shuʿab al-Īman from the Tābʿī Khālid bin Mʿadān in a mursal narration]

    It has also been related that the Prophet said, “Wear turbans! Increase in discernment! Turbans are the crowns of the Arabs.”

    [Bayhaqī, Shuʿab al-Īman from Usamah bin ʿUmayr] (Ibn Hajar mentions the narration is weak but has a corroborating narration.)

    The like of these narrations have been transmitted from other sources with similar wording and meaning. See [ad-Dʿiāmah, Jʿafar al-Katāni]...

      اتفق الفقهاء على استحباب ستر الرأس في الصلاة للرجل بعمامة وما في معناها؛ لأنه صلى الله عليه وسلم كان يصلي بالعمامة
      أما المرأة فواجب ستر رأسها


      The scholars are united on the fact that it is recommended for men to cover their head in prayer by means of a turban or that which is similar because he (:saw:) used to pray with a turban.

      As for the women it is obligatory for them to cover their head.

          Not a lot of people wear them anymore. Unless I go to indo-pak Masjids.

                Re: Wearing turban (forgotten sunnah)

                Sahih Muslim

                by Imam Muslim, translation by Abdul Hamid Siddiqui , Volume: The Book of Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah)

                531.
                'Urwa b. al Mughira b. Shu'ba reported it on the authority of his father that he said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) lagged behind (in a journey) and I also lagged behind along with him. After having relieved himself he said: Have you any water with you? I brought to him a jar of water; he washed his palms, and face, and when he tried to get his forearms out (he could not) for the sleeve of the gown was tight. He, therefore, brought them out from under the gown and, throwing it over his shoulders, he washed his forearm. He then wiped his forelock and his turban and his socks. He then mounted and I also mounted (the ride) and came to the people. They had begun the prayer with 'Abd ar-Rabmin b. 'Anf leading them and had completed a rak'a. When he perceived the presence of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) he began to retire. He (the Holy Prophet) signed to him to continue and offered prayer along with them. Then when he had pronounced the salutation, the Apostle (may peace be upon him) got up and I also got up with him, and we offered the rak'a which had been finished before we came.

                532.
                Ibn Mughira narrated it from his father: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) wiped over his socks and over his forehead and over his turban.

                533.
                This hadith has been transmitted by Ibn Mughira on the authority of his father by another chain of transmitters.

                534.
                Bakr reported that he had heard from the son of Mughira that verily the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) performed ablution and wiped over his forehead and wiped over his turban and over his socks.

                535.
                It is narrated from Bilal that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) wiped over the socks and turban, and in the hadith transmitted by 'Isa b. Yaunus the words are:" Bilal narrated it to me."

                536.
                This tradition is transmitted by A'mash with this addition;, I saw the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him)."

                    Re: Wearing turban (forgotten sunnah)

                    :salams bro

                    I am not sure if wearing the turban constitutes as a sunnah, IslamQA seem to say that it is simply a customary practice, which we can follow if we want but its not classed a sunnah


                    The gauge for customary practices is: Everything that is done by human nature and there is no apparent intent of worship or legislation or invitation to imitate in it such as; standing and sitting, eating and drinking, sleeping, taking shade, walking, combing hair and the lengthening or shortening of it, the wearing of a waist wrapper, (upper) body cover, shirt (robe) or turban because people must wear garments and the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) wore these garments which existed among his people.


                    https://islamqa.info/en/151146

                    The turban – like any other article of clothing – is subject to people’s customs. If you are among people who customarily wear the turban, then wear it; if you are among people who do not customarily wear the turban – rather they wear the ghutrah (Arab headdress) or leave their heads uncovered, then do what they do. End quote.

                      Re: Wearing turban (forgotten sunnah)

                      i agree, not many people wear this days.
                      only a certain few.
                      even most Religious teachers don't wear them.
                      I suppose some don't wear because of afraid that one might fall in riyak (one of the few despicable attributes Sum'ah, ujub ,Takabur )
                      so it depends on the individual though, because only Allah truly knows ones intentions.

                      if a person sees everyone wearing one, and the person is its in the environment and culture that everyone is wearing the turban, then i suppose there is less chance of that.
                      its good to see people wearing them ,so we know how Rasullulah(pbuh) and his companions sahabah R.A looked like wearing one, and its kind of a reminder to us.
                      its a kind of inspiration too , really. A symbol of islamic strength, I might say. (sorry if i not sure how to describe this well and if its the wrong word - symbol)

                          Re: Wearing turban (forgotten sunnah)

                          1. Imam Muslim and Imam Tirmidhi رحمهما الله narrate on the authority of Jabir Ibn Abdillah رضي الله عنهما who said:

                          أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم دخل يوم فتح مكة وعليه عمامة سوداء

                          “The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم entered Makkah on the day He conquered it, and he was wearing a black turban.”

                          2. Imam Muslim رحمه الله narrates on the authority of ‘Amr Ibn Huraith that his father said:

                          أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم خطب الناس وعليه عمامة سوداء

                          “The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم delivered the (farewell) sermon while wearing a black turban.”

                          3. Imam Abu Dawud and Imam Tirmidhi رحمهما الله narrate on the authority of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri رضي الله عنه who said:

                          كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا استجد ثوبا سماه باسمه عمامة أو قميصا أو رداء ثم يقول اللهم لك الحمد أن كسوتنيه أسألك خيره وخير ما صنع له وأعوذ بك من شره وشر ما صنع له

                          “Whenever the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم would wear a new garment, He would give it a name; whether it was a Qamis, turban or a shawl. Then He would say: `O Allah! For You is the Praise, You have clothed me, I ask You for its good and the good for which it was made, and I seek refuge in You from its evil and the evil for which it was made”

                          4. Imam Tirmidhi رحمه الله narrates on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Umar رضي الله عنهما who said:

                          كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا اعتم سدل عمامته بين كتفيه

                          “When the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم wore a turban, He would let the tail hang between His shoulder blades.”

                          The vast majority of ‘Ulama agree that from among the Prophet’s favoured clothing is the turban.

                          (Ibn al-Jawzi in al-Wafa: 2/140, al-Maktabah al-Asriyyah and al-Qastalani in al-Mawahib al-Laduniyyah: 2/184, al-Maktabah at-Tawfiqiyyah)

                          Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume #1 pg#536

                          Ibn Abbas (Radhiallaahu Án) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) addresses the Shaba while wearing a black turban.

                          Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume #1, Book 4, Hadith # 204

                          Narrated Ja'far bin 'Amr: My father said, "I saw the Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) passing wet hands over his turban and Khuffs (leather socks)."

                          Narrated Bilal ibn Rabah: Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) wiped over the socks (khufs) and turban (Imaamah). In the hadith transmitted by Isa ibn Yunus the words are: 'Bilal narrated it to me.

                          Sahih Al- Muslim Book 7, Hadith # 3146

                          Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah: Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) entered Mecca. Qutaybah stated that he entered Mecca in the Year of Victory, wearing a black turban, but not wearing the Ihram. (also reported by Tirmidhi vol.1 pg 304 and Ibn majah pg205)

                          Sahih Al- Muslim Book 7, Hadith # 3148

                          Narrated Amr ibn Hurayth (Radhiallaahu Án) Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) addressed the people (on the day of the Victory of Mecca) with a black turban on his head.

                          Sanan Abu Dawood Book 1, Hadith # 0147

                          Narrated Anas ibn Malik: I saw Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) perform ablution. He had a Qutri turban. He inserted his hand beneath the turban and wiped over the forelock, and did not untie the turban.

                          Sanan Abu Dawood Book 32, Hadith # 4027

                          Narrated Sa'd: I saw a man riding on a white mule and he had a black turban of silk and wool (not pure silk). He said: The Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) put it (the turban) on me. This is the version of Uthman, and there is the word akhbara in his tradition.

                          Abu Dawood Book 32, Hadith # 4068

                          Narrated AbdurRahman ibn Awf: Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) put a turban on me and let the ends hang in front of him and behind me.

                          Tirmidhi from the book Shamaa'il Tirmidhi pg #108 Hadith # 109

                          Amr bin Hurayth (Radhiallaahu Án) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) gave the khutbah and he was wearing a black turban on his head.

                          Abu Dawood and Tirmidhi

                          Roknah (Radhiallaahu Án) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said "The distinction between us and the polytheists is the turbans over our caps. "Note : Also quoted by Al-Tabrizi in his Mishkat Al-Masabih and this clears up the false notion that this was just the way of the arabs and not a particular practice of Rasulullah (SAW)

                          Tabrani, Haakim and Nahabi have mentioned this to be SAHIH Hadith

                          Ataa bin Rabaah (Radhiallaahu Án) that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) tied a white turban (Imaama) on the head or AbdulRahman ibn Auf (Radhiallaahu Án).

                          MISHKAT page #377 and also reported by Baihaqi in Shuabul Imaan.

                          Ubadah (Radhiallaahu Án) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) "Make a practice of tying Turbans since it is a hallmark of the angels." Note: Here Rasulullah(SAW) is even advising others to wear the Imaama!

                          Tabrani
                          Musa Ashari (Radhiallaahu Án) narrates that Jibraeel would come to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) wearing a turban.

                          Haakim cited in the book Mustadrak Haakim vol34 pg#540

                          Aisha (Radhiallaahu Ánha) reports a on the occasion of the battle of the trench a man came to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam)wearing a Turban and when she asked Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) about this man he informed her this was Jibraeel.
                          Haakim has declared this hadith to be SAHIH)
                          At-Tabrani and Haakim reports this to be reliable Hassan
                          (Also quoted in Tabarani's al-Mu`jam al-kabir (1:162), Bazzar's Zawa'id, al-Hakim's Mustadrak (4:193), al-Khatib al- Baghdadi's Tarikh Baghdad (11:394), and Ibn `Asakir's Tahdhib tarikh dimashq al-kabir (5:178). Also in the book Turban Thowb and kufi by Maulana FazlurRahman on pg#24)

                          Ibn Abbas (Radhiallaahu Án) reports that Rasulullah(SAW) said "Adopt the Turban as it will increase your Hilm ( good character, intelligence, patience)."


                          The opions of great Scholars on the Turban...

                          Al-Munawi said in the commentary on Tirmidhi's al-Shama'il.
                          "The turban is a Sunnah, especially for prayer and for self beautification, because of the many narration's concerning it."

                          Shaikh-ul-hadith Zakarriya Khandalwi (Rahimahullah)

                          "The tying of the Turban is a "Sunnate Mustamirrah" (Prepetually adhered to the practice of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) and Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) has enjoined the tying of the turban upon us. It has been reported in the hadith that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said "Tie the turban. it will increase you in forbearance."

                          Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Jameel Zino (Imam Muhammad Ibn Saud Islamic University) in his book Al-Shamail Al-Muhammadiyyah on page #106)

                          Headwear are symbols of nations and many Muslims imitate the unbelievers by wearing their head wear. In fact, covering their heads with a Turban, or even a scarf, is better for them and further from resembling the unbelievers.

                          Maulana Fazlul Karim

                          (This is from his commentary of Mishkat vol#1 pg#630)

                          "The holy Prophet (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) used to wear a Turban and he said that the angels also wear it in the heavens and the turban protects the head and adorns the face."

                          Murtada al-Zabidi (Rahimahullah)
                          (In his commentary on Ghazali's Ihya' `ulum al-din entitled Ithaf al-sadat al-muttaqin 3:253.)

                          "The turban is desired (mustahabb) on Fridays for both the imam and the congregation, and Nawawi said that it is desired for the imam to beautify his appearance (i.e. more than everyone else), wear the turban, and wear a rida' (jubba, a loose outer garment or robe). The application of the Sunnah consists in winding the turban on the head or on top of a qalansuwa (kufi). It is preferable to wear it large, but it is necessary to define its length and width by what fits the wearer's custom according to his time and place. To add to this is disliked by the Law."

                          The Practice of the pious scholars...

                          Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani (Rahimahullah) mentioned in FathulBaari pg#491 and 493

                          That Imaam Bukhari and Imaam Muslim both wore Turbans.
                          Note: that they were not arabs but took this practice as the Sunna of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) .

                          "Hasan al-Basri (Rahimahullah) wore a Black Turban"
                          Imaam Nawawi (Rahimahullah)
                          ( quoted from the biographical notice for Imaam Nawawi in the Reliance of the Traveller.)

                          "Imaam Nawawi all his life possessed only a thawb (long shirt) and a turban"
