about halfway down, the section "Why do the Shi'ah prostrate on Turbah?"

https://www.al-islam.org/nutshell/files/turbah.pdf

basically in our belief we cannot place our foreheads while in sujood on certain things like fabric (carpet), food etc. the prophet (s) had a small mat made up of date palm leaves that he used to place his forehead on when praying. 

we have to place our foreheads on any natural material. khaak e shiffa (clay from karbala) is natural, so we can place our foreheads on it.
