Print on Turba


Salaams, Recently I was told that the Turba’s we buy from Iraq etc…and they have a print on it, like the Allah’s name or the Aimmah a.s’s name it is not permissible to pray on it and we cannot even turn the Turba around and pray on it. Is this true? Majority of turba’s we buy have some sort of print on it.


Alaikum Salaam

There is nothing wrong with praying on a turba that has Allah (swt) or the aimmah (s)’s name on it, or to turn it around and pray on the other side, as long as it is not considered as disrespectful.
