  2. FIL’AKOVO, SLOVAKIA—According to a report in The Slovak Spectator, archaeologist Viktória Tittonová led an investigation of an area of a castle located near what is now the Slovakia-Hungary border. “We found silver coins, ceramics, pipes, knives, and even vessels and sacks with the remains of grains,” she said. The team also uncovered pieces of a turbah, a clay disc that may have been used by Shia Muslims during prayer to symbolize the earth. The turbah is thought to date to the sixteenth or seventeenth centuries, when the town of Fil’akovo was part of the Ottoman Empire. Older fortifications
  3. While some are porous and rugged, some are neat and have that shiny aspect. How do they do that ? A cooking process?
  4. Salaam, I was wondering if I could use a small rock from outside as a turbah or if there is anything else I would be able to use. I'm not sure where to buy one in stores around me and I can't buy one online as my parents will find out (they don't accept Islam and would punish me if they knew). Please let me know, thank you!
  5. I didn't believed until I saw with my own eyes people disrespecting and disregarding the soil of Karbala. At shrines of Imam Reza (a.s.) and Imam Ali (a.s.) in particular you will more often find yourself dodging the turbah/Khake Shifa/mohr. I was really appalled to see a man at one of those shrine tossing a piece of turbah to the ground and that lazy fella adjusted it's position using his feet. Such a contemptuous behaviour! https://www.al-islam.org/greater-sins-volume-3-ayatullah-sayyid-abdul-husayn-dastghaib-shirazi/fiftieth-greater-sin
  6. Salamo Aleikum brothers and sisters! I hope everything is well with all of you. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this site: http://mecollectibles.com/en/236-prayer-rug. I was looking to buy some prayer rugs and some other things and came across this site. Does anyone know of it?
  7. Salam brothers I have a question regarding turbah You see,i found a turbah ,which was old and colour changed,so i washed it to remove everything from its surface and i used a knife too While i did that cleaning i also re shaped turbah with knife Actually i adjusted it to my forehead But i read somwhere that its disrespecting thing to use knife So im asking Did i do wrong? Can i use this turbah?
  8. Salam I heard that we should not put our forehead on side where something is written on turbah,that we should use side without any writing Is this true? I used to pray on turbah on side which has a shrine on it Does this invalidate my prayer?
  9. Assalamu 'alaikum, I have spent the whole morning looking for a cloth for my turbah, like these ones; http://mecollectibles.com/en/134-turbah-cloth, I was going to buy one from there but the shipping is crazily expensive and they don't ship to Sweden, so I'm wondering if anybody knows where I can buy a cloth similar to that, that isn't very expensive. I tried looking on ebay and amazon but I can't find anything there.
  10. Salam brothers Is it allowed to make small movement of head when we put forehead on turbah before we start dhikr Can we make movement in order to make better position for forehead on turbah because al weight is on one spot
  11. Assalam alaikum brothers and sisters, Today in my sujood I had placed my head in the turbah and it has cracked. I did not pressure it with my head and the turbah was not broken or had any damage whatsoever before the incident. The turbah has now been cracked in half by my sujood and I was wondering if there was a meaning behind this.
  12. Assalamualaikum. I am a new convert to Shia Islam, alhamdulillah. I am a female living in Birmingham, UK and I don't know any Shia muslims at the moment so I haven't been able to get a turbah to prostrate on. So first off, does anyone know where I can get one? But I've been wondering is a turbah compulsory because up til now I've been prostrating on paper.
  13. Asalam Alykum, I hope everyone is in good health. I am sorry if this is not the right topic area to post this. I have been searching information regarding Turbah/Muhr. We [Me and my wife] do not know how to care for it, how to keep and how to maintain it. To expand, I tend to pray using Turbah at work and at home and while I do my bows I notice sometimes the Turbah becomes darker. Sometimes its not sometimes my forehead is wet and it becomes wet so I clean it with my shirt etc. My wife pointed out to me that my Turbah was completely worn out as it was a very dark brown colour otherwise I had b
  14. Where does one get or purchase a turbah? Other than being given one from family, where? Thanks, TYE
  15. This is the third in a series of 'challenges' I have presented to our brothers from Ahlul Sunnah. (1) http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235021910-a-massive-challenge-to-absolutely-every-sunni/ (2) http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235022032-another-massive-challenge-to-all-sunnis/ So far, no one has been able to adequately refute either of them and I welcome any Sunni brothers to attempt it. In this one, I want to discuss the dust or stone that we prostrate on, and whether that is the innovation or praying on carpets is the innovation, I'm sure everyone is familiar with Ibn Taymiy
  16. At the mosque I sometimes notice that some people use more that one turbah whilst praying, placing one above the other (not on top of, just slightly above as in further away). I was wondering why this is done?
  17. (salam) I'm very excited tonight! I received my very first turbah. Up until now, I've been using paper, as per Sistani's recommendation, but I've always wanted a proper turbah. I converted to (Sunni) Islam in 2010, but three months ago I realised that my loyalties are actually to Ahlul Bayt, and so changed from being Sunni to Shi'i. Anyways, I just wanted to share my excitement! I had a few offers from people over the internet to mail me a turbah from different countries across the world, which was very thoughtful, but eventually somebody I know (via Twitter) offered to give me her one (she's
