Prayer in a Turban | Shaykh Abdul-Azīz bin Bāz

Q: How credible is the hadeeth; ‘Prayer in a turban is 70 times better than prayer without one’?

A: There is no basis for this fabricated lie on the authority of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) – no origin for it.

Q: They also ask about the hadeeth; ‘Ward off the youth and the insane from the masaajid’.

A: This hadeeth also is a fabricated lie – no credibility for it. Rather, the masaajid are prevented of defilements from the foolish people, children, and other than them (by) prohibiting horseplay in the masaajid, even if the hadeeth is not authentic. This is because the masaajid must be clean and pure, and prevented from roughhousing.
