Quranic Destimal (kerchief) containing water used to wash Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ Hair
Destimal of the Faithful is a magnificently woven cotton kerchief that has been sprayed with blessed Zamzam water used to wash the hair (شعرات النبي محمد, Moi-e-Muqaddas, موے مقدس) of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
In terms of calligraphy, the destimal is scripted in thuluth khat. The top circular consists of the names Allah, Muhammad, Fatimah, Ali, Husayn, and Hassan, while the central design is composed of the invocation of Majesty which states that ‘There is no strength or power except with God’. This statement is mirrored and repeated 4 times.
Starting from the right band to the left, Destimal of the Faithful contains the following verses from the Quranic verses:
O Prophet, fear God, and obey not the unbelievers and the hypocrites. God is All-knowing, All-wise. And follow what is revealed to thee from thy Lord; surely God is aware of the things you do. And put thy trust in God; God suffices as a guardian.
(The Clans; 33:2)
Historically, the destimal (Persian for kerchief) took on a special significance during the Ottoman Empire. Every year, the Blessed Mantle (Burda) belonging to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was visited by the sultan, his family, and the court during a ceremony on the fifteenth day of Ramadan. During the visitation ceremony, the Blessed Mantle was either kissed or revered after which various kerchiefs were used to touch it. These kerchiefs, called destimal-ı şerif, were then distributed to public officials, religious scholars, notables, and ladies of the palace.
In an attempt to bring the spirit of this beautiful tradition back, Rumi’s Garden has created Destimal of the Faithful. Once the destimal is produced, it is sprayed with Zamzam water that had been collected from washing the blessed hair of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ making it a protective relic for the home or your person.
Please note that Rumi's Garden is charging for the cost of the destimal and not the wash water of the Prophetic hair which is a gift to our valuable clients.
