The Rewards of wearing the Turban, Crown of Islam


Hadiths on turbans

(Muslim Shareef Vol. 1 Pg. 134)
Hazrat Huraith (r.a) reports that Nabi (s.a.w) addressed the people while wearing a black turban.

Hazrat Abu Saeed Khudri (r.a) narrates: " It was the practice of Nabi (s.a.w) that whenever he wore a new item of clothing, he would (first) take the name of it. E.g Turban or Kurta or Chaadar (Cloak). Thereafter, he would make the following dua - "O Allah, I am indeed grateful to You for this clothing which You have granted me. I beg of You the virtue of it and the benefit for which it was made. I seek protection in You from its harm and from the evil which it was created for.

Hazrat Huraith(r.a) narrates that he saw Nabi (s.a.w) standing on the pulpit while he had on a black turban. Both the loose ends of the turban were hanging between his shoulder blades.(Muslim Vol.1 Pg. 490; Ibn Abi Shaibah Vol.8, Pg.239, Ibn Majah Pg. 256, Pg.653)

Hazrat Ubadah (r.a) reports that Nabi (s.a.w) said: "Make a practice of tying turbans since it is a
hallmark of the Angels. Futhermore, tie them in such a manner that the tail hangs at the back".
(Baihaqi reported it in Shu'abul Iman; Mishkat Pg. 377)

Adopt the turban as it will increase your forbearance. Hold fast to the turban as it is the sign of the angels. Also let the loose end hang from the back (Baihaqi has reported this from Ibn Abbas
(r.a) marffoo'an (a narration in which the words of Nabi s.a.w are reported). The reward of the Salah performed while wearing the turban is multiplied 25 times while (Dailami has reported this in his Musnad from Ibn Urnar (r.a). The angels attend the Jumu'ah while wearing turbans. Hence, those people who are wearing turbans receive the benefit that the angels make dua for them till sunset.

(Dailami hadiths)
The Jumu'ah performed while wearing a turban is 70 times superior to a Jumu'ah without a turban.

(Dailami hadith )
Some of Allah Ta'ala's angels stand at the door of the Masjid and seek repentance on behalf of those wearing white turbans.

Narrated from Ibn Umar (r.a) and Abu Hurairah(r.a): Two rakaats of Salah performed while wearing the turban are superior to seventy rakaats performed without a turban.

(Narrated by Jaabir r.a): Allah Ta'ala causes his mercy to decend on the people wearing turbans
on the day of Jumu'ah and his angels make dua for such people.

(Dailami reports from Abu Darda r.a): The turban distinguishes the Muslim from the Mushriks. (Narrated from Sayyidina Ali r.a.k.w) Wearing turbans over one's topees distinguishes us from the Mushrikeen. (Narrated from Rukana Radiallahu Anhu,Sakhawi - pg. 466)

Prayer offered wearing an turban is seventy times more excellent than that offered without. (Ihya Ulum ud-Din, Imam al Ghazali)
