Assalamualaikum wr wb, Dear Mufti Sahb, I would like to know about the Sunnah of Imamah. What colour and what size should it be. I have heard that though the black turban has been narrated in the sihah, yet the most narrated is white. Is this true.
And another thing I saw written somewhere that the most authentic thing about the colour and size of the imamah is that whatever is called an imamah in the urf e aam is a imamah, whatever colour, design or size may it be. And please tell me some fazail of the imamah from sihah or hasan ahadis so I may be able to share it. And another thing is the reward of 100 martyrs that is given for an abandoned sunnah, will wearing an imamah lie in these Sunan. Jazakumullahukhairan
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
