    where to order an IMAMAH (3imamah/turban)

    It is so unfortunate that here in Saudi Arabia, I looked for a proper Turban but could not find one, not even in Madeenah.....

    Does anyone know where I could find one? Even if online so I can order?

    You know what I am talking about right? i hope you do..

    i dunno if they sell ready made ones, most brothers just wear a kufi and wrap a piece of cloth around the kufi

      What kind are you looking for? To wrap like the afghanis or how? You can wrap a kefiyyeh/ shemagh as a turban. I can show you if you like.

        you dont order it bro you make it yourself.

        goto a cloth store or a talouring store. buy a length of cloth that is 7 arms length(sunnah length). the thiunner the cloth the easier it is to wrap. however dont but one that too thin that its basicly for show and will be usless if you get cought in a sandstorm. after you buy it either hire somone or sew yourself a seam on all edges of the cloth so that yout tuban cloth is even easier to wrap and the edges dont fray and so that it stays together for a longer period of times and increses the lifespan of it.

        and thats basicly it.

        you can also get one of 13 arms length as that is also the sunnah.


        on al hannah.com you can order an afghan lungie but its abit thick for saudi.
        And the (faithful) slaves of the Most Gracious (All‚h) are those who walk on the earth in humility and sedateness, and when the foolish address them (with bad words) they reply back with mild words of gentleness. (25:63)

        O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a trade that will save you from a painful torment? (10) That you believe in All‚h and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW),and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of All‚h with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know! (11) (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwellings in Adn (Edn) Paradise; that is indeed the great success. (12)

        JazakAllah khair for the duas but i would prefer duas for shahadah instead.

          The turbaned beardos that I know buy the long cloth and wrap in around, either criss cross way or straight.

          Also some brothers use the square scarves you can buy in the saudi, the red/white ones or the plain white ones......the shemaghs

          When I go Pakistan the men leave us women with money to go shopping and the driver whilst they spend 50 million hours shopping for their imamahs and thobe material.....apparently its gotta be the right kinda material/texture/thickness/colour

                  The material i've found to be best for an imama is what's called 'malmal'.

                  Best go for Sunnah colours, I permanently stick to White. Also Sunnah style is criss-cross.

                              Lol, as far as i have seen, the amaamah is not common in saudi cities. Maybe moreso amongst the bedoin tribes.
