Description
Product is a nicely modeled ,five different turbahs where you can find in any Shia Mosques of the world .


A turbah is a small piece of soil or clay, often a clay tablet, optionally used by some Shia schools.[1] during the daily prayers (Salat). It symbolizes earth.[2] While use of a turbah is not compulsory, it is highly recommended and many Hadith mention the benefits of prostration (Sajda) upon the soil of the earth or an alternative material. The most favoured soil is that of Karbala, the site of the martyrdom of Imam Husayn; however, soil from anywhere may be used. In the absence of soil, plants or items made from plants may be substituted. This provision has been extended to include the use of paper.[3]
Following the instruction from the Qur'an, Shi’ah Ja’fari[who?] stated that 'prostration must be performed on pure earth or what grows on it, provided that it is not eaten or worn.' For example, prostration on paper is permissible because it is made of natural elements grown on earth.[4] Although it is not required of a person to prostrate on a turbah during prayer, many Muslims prefer to use one because it demonstrates their concern for the cleanliness of their bodies, clothes, and the place in which they pray, hence the production of the portable turbahs.
