Wearing an Amaamah (Turban)

Q: Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to wear ammamah and it can be any cloth wrapped on head? It is not specific to Indian pagri or Saudi sughra? Like the Arab sughra or like wearing kufi and then placing a cloth on it like what imams of haram wear is sunah?

A: Amaamah is not just wrapping something. It is folding it in a particular way. The saudi cloth that is worn on the head is not an amaamah. It is more a scarf.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
