Wearing Green,white black turban in islam is Sunnah and recommended for muslims

Wearing Green,white black turban in islam is Sunnah and recommended for muslims

حدّثنا أبو بكر قال حدثنا سليمٰن بن حرب قال: حدثنا جرير بن حازم عن يعلى بن حكيم عن سليمٰن بن أبي عبدالله قال: أدركت المهاجرين الأولين يعتمون بعمائم كرابيس سود وبيض وحمر وخضر

Translation: Suliman bin Abi Abdullah (ra) narrates that he met the "First amongst Mahajireen" they were wearing thick turbans which were of black, white, red and“GREEN COLOUR” [Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (6/48)]

Quran states:Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?, Reclining on "GREEN CUSHIONS" and rich Carpets of beauty. (Surah ar-Rahman 55:75-76)

The Green color is loved color of ALLAH azza Wajjal and color of garment which Ahlul Jannah shall wear and the lovely cushions in Jannah shall be green, no wonder the Wahabis and their ilk hate this color, but hey let’s move towards ALLAH’S Apostle (Peace be upon him) and what he said about this color and what color sahaba chose to cover Prophet (saw)'s body after he passed away, plus why the Dome of Prophet’s mosque is Green , on the contrary the Christians despised green and painted the eyes of shaytan as green (no wonder Wahabis and their supporters are inspired so much from Christians in hating green whereas Islam’s beloved color is green)

Volume 7, Book 72, Number 705: (Sahih Bukhari)

Narrated 'Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) When Allah's Apostle died, he was covered with a Hibra Burd (green square decorated garment). 

Now let’s see why Green color was chosen 

Volume 7, Book 72, Number 713: (Sahih Bukhari)

Narrated Um Khalid bint Khalid: The Prophet was given some clothes including a black Khamisa. The Prophet said, "To whom shall we give this to wear?" The people kept silent whereupon the Prophet said, "Fetch Um Khalid for me." I (Um Khalid) was brought carried (as I was small girl at that time). The Prophet took the Khamisa in his hands and made me wear it and said, “May you live so long that your dress will wear out and you will mend it many times." On the Khamisa there were some green or pale designs (The Prophet saw these designs) and said, "O Um Khalid! This is Sanah." (Sanah is an Ethiopian word meaning beautiful). 

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَيُّمَا مُؤْمِنٍ أَطْعَمَ مُؤْمِنًا عَلَى جُوعٍ أَطْعَمَهُ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ ثِمَارِ الْجَنَّةِ وَأَيُّمَا مُؤْمِنٍ سَقَى مُؤْمِنًا عَلَى ظَمَإٍ سَقَاهُ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مِنْ الرَّحِيقِ الْمَخْتُومِ وَأَيُّمَا مُؤْمِنٍ كَسَا مُؤْمِنًا عَلَى عُرْيٍ كَسَاهُ اللَّهُ مِنْ خُضْرِ الْجَنَّةِ
Sayyidina Abu Sa’eed Khudri (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “If a believer feeds (another) believer when he is hungry then Allah will feed him on the Day of Resurrection from the fruit of Paradise. And, if a believer gives water to a believer when he is thirsty then Allah will give him to drink on the Day of Resurrection from rahiq ul-makhatum (sealded wine) . And, if a believer clothes another believer when he is without (sufficient) clothes then Allah will clothe him with green (garments) of Paradise.” 
[Ahmed 11101 and Sunan tirmidhi (2457) ] 

رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَعَلَيْهِ بُرْدَانِ أَخْضَرَانِ

Sayyidina Abu Rimthah (RA) reported that he observed Allah’s Messenger (SAW)in a pair of green garments
[Dawud Book 9 Hadith 1678 ]

just to add even Sheikh Abul Haq Muhadith Dehalvi writes that Prophet (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم)
also used Green Ammama Sharif"[in his book in his book Zia'ul-Qaloub fi Libass-e-Mahboub]

So wearing Green clothes ,Caps or turbans is a Sunnah and proved from Sahih Hadiths , Alhamduliallah, Any one rejecting it is a biddati not wearing it 

The Green turban of AQah karim (صلی اللہ علیھ وآلھ وسلم) is proved 

Even Arab and European Sunni muslims having nothing to do with Subcontinent culture Wear Green Imama Sharif as a Sunnah.Most prominent is Sheikh Nazim Haqqani Naqshbandi inspite of the fact Naqshbandis are traditionally known to wear White turbans 

The White & black colour Imaama (Turban) in the light of Quran, Hadith and opinions of great scholars.....

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.

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

(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) .

Ibn Al-Jawzi and Ibn Al-Qayyim
(In Rawdat al-muhibbin p. 225.)

"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"

In the Light of the Quran....

(This tafseer is Agreed upon by Ibn Kathir, Al-Qurtabi and At-Tabari)

The Holy Quran, Sura #3;Ayah #31 

"Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): "If you (really) love Allâh then follow me (i.e. accept Islâmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'ân and the Sunnah), Allâh will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allâh is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful."
The Holy Quran, Sura #33;Ayah #21 

"Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad SAW) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much."
The Holy Quran, Sura #42;Ayah #52 

"And thus We have sent to you (O Muhammad SAW) Ruhan (an Inspiration, and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is Faith? But We have made it (this Qur'ân) a light wherewith We guide whosoever of Our slaves We will. And verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allâh's religion of Islâmic Monotheism)."
The Holy Quran, Sura #59;Ayah #7 

"And whatever the Prophet gives you, ACCEPT IT and whatever he forbids you, ABSTAIN (from it)" 
In the Light of the Sahih Hadith..

Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 92, Hadith # 401

Narrated Ibn `Umar (Radhiallaahu Án): Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam)wore a gold ring and then the people followed him and wore gold rings too. Then the Prophet said, "I had this golden ring made for myself." He then threw it away and said, "I shall never put it on." Thereupon the people also threw their rings away. Note: Look at hoe strict the Sahaba (Radhiallaahu Án) were in following the Sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW) what ever he did they followed him.

Abu Dawud and Imaam Ahmad Bin Hanbal 

On the authority of Ibn `Umar (Radhiallaahu Án) who said that Rasulullah(Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said "Whoso resembles a people in appearance, he is one of them." (Also narrated by Ibn Abi Shayba in his Musannaf (5:313), Ibn Hajar in Fath al-Bari 10:274 [Dar al-Fikr ed.], and Ibn Kathir in his Tafsir (8:53). `Iraqi said its chain is sound (sahih). al-Bazzar also relates it through Hudhayfa and Abu Hurayra, Abu Nu`aym through Anas, and al-Quda`i relates it through Tawus, a chain which Ibn Hibban declared sahih. Ibn Taymiyya in his Iqtida' al-siratal- mustaqim (p. 82) calls Abu Dawud's and Ahmad's chain "a good chain." )
Tirmidhi (hasan), Book of knowledge; al-Baghawi, Sharh al-sunna 1:233. 

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said "Whoever gives life to one of my Sunnahs which was eliminated after my time will receive the reward of all those who practice it without their reward being diminished"
Tirmidhi (hasan gharib), Book of knowledge. 

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) Said "Whoever gives life to one of my Sunnahs, he loves me: and whoever loves me is with me."
Al-Mundhiri, al-Targhib 1:87; Al-Hakim 

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) Said "The keeper of my Sunnah at the time my Community has lapsed into corruption will receive the reward of a martyr."
Al-Bayhaqi, al-Sunan al-kubra 5:245; Ibn al-Athir, Usd al-ghaba 3:341; Dhahabi narrates that Abdullah Ibn `Umar (Radhiallaahu Án), used to dismount in order to walk on the exact same spot the Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) had put his steps. Note: This is how strict the Sahaba (Radhiallaahu Ánhuma) were in following the Sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW)! And they understood the deen better than us.
