عن جابرٍ -رضي الله عنه-: أَنَّ رسولَ اللهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- دَخَلَ يومَ فَتْحِ مَكَّةَ وعليه عِمَامَةٌ سَوْدَاءُ. عن أبي سعيدٍ عمرو بنِ حُرَيْثٍ -رضي الله عنه- قال: كَأَنِّي أَنْظُرُ إلى رسولِ اللهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- وعليه عِمَامَةٌ سَوْدَاءُ، قَدْ أَرْخَى طَرَفَيْهَا بَيْنَ كَتِفَيْهِ. في رواية: أَنَّ رسولَ اللهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم- خَطَبَ النَّاسَ، وعليه عِمَامَةٌ سَوْدَاءُ.

Jābir (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that on the day of the Conquest of Makkah, the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) entered (Makkah) while wearing a black turban. Abu Sa‘īd ‘Amr ibn Hurayth (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: I saw the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) wearing a black turban with its ends hanging loose between his shoulders. In another narration: "The Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) gave a sermon while wearing a black turban."

Explanation

The Hadīth reported by Jābir (may Allah be pleased with him) states that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) entered Makkah on the day of its conquest wearing a black turban. This indicates that it is permissible to wear black clothing. The second narration reporting that the Prophet gave a sermon while wearing a black turban shows the permissibility of wearing black clothes when delivering a sermon. However, wearing white clothing is better as reported in a Sahīh Hadīth: "The best of your clothing is the white ones." Wearing black clothes by sermon givers is permissible, but white is better. That is the Prophet's wearing a black turban in this Hadīth just shows that it is permissible. As for the other Hadīth reported by ‘Amr ibn Hurayth, saying: "I saw the Messenger of Allah (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) wearing a black turban with its ends hanging loose between his shoulders," it indicates the permissibility of wearing a black turban and letting its ends hang down between the shoulders.
