Book Name:Shaban ul Muazzam main nafil ibadaat

1.         If you have a large kerchief with which you can produce enough folds to cover the whole head, then it will be considered as an ‘Imamah. It is Makruh to bind a small kerchief with which one can only produce one or two folds. (Fatawa Razawiyyah – referenced, vol. 7, pp. 299)

2.         If the ‘Imamah has to be tied again, then it should be untied in the way it was tied, it should not be thrown on the ground at all, the first time.

3.         If the ‘Imamah is to be taken off due to some need and there is the intention of binding it again, then one sin will be erased on untying each fold. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 6, pp. 214)

4.         Winter and summer directly affects the hair of bareheaded people; it not only affects their hair, but also the brain and face, and may harm their health. Therefore, with the intention of acting upon a Sunnah, if someone ties an ‘Imamah on his head, he will attain the safety and peace of both the worlds.
