Performing the prayer while wearing the black turban

Published by:

What the graceful Islamic scholars and great Muftis say about the issue that In our Mosque, the imam performs the prayer wearing the black turban and he keeps it wearing usually. Some of the followers of the Mosque objected that it’s the way of Shias, so don’t perform the prayer wearing the black turban. So their objection is right or not in the point of Sharia’s law? And also let us know that wearing the black turban is a correct sunnah or not and what is the rule regarding this matter? Please provide the reply, may God reward you.

The Answer

Wearing the black turban has been proven by Prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم ۔  He used the black turban and also its usage has been proved by the passed righteous and seniors, so it doesn’t become the way of misguided groups because of someone’s saying. Muslims can use it without displeasure. However, it’s recommended that using of it should be avoided in the month of Muharram, so it’s is described in Sunan Nasai that:

عن جعفر بن عمرو بن امیة عن ابیہ قال کانی انظر الساعة الی رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم علی المنبر وعلیہ عمامة سوداء قد ارحی طرفہا بین کتفیہ 

ج ۲ ص ۲۵۵نسائی شریف

عن جعفر بن عمرو بن حریث عن ابیہ ان النبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم خطب الناس وعلیہ عمامة سوداء 

شمائل ترمذی ص ۹
