The World Federation One Stop Fiqh

Ruling 579

It is recommended to mix some turbah from the grave of His Eminence Sayyid al-Shuhadāʾ [Imam al-Ḥusayn] (ʿA) with the camphor. However, the camphor must not be applied to places on the body that would cause disrespect to that earth. Furthermore, the amount of turbah should not be so great that when mixed with the camphor, it can no longer be called ‘camphor’.
