"Pilgrimage to El-Medinah & Meccah"
by Richard F Burton 1856. Vol 3.
quoting "El Khatib" on Pilgrimage
(=El Hajj.) Note: "El Ihram" (= "ren-
dering unlawful") concerns "the
wearing pilgrim garb & avoiding
certain actions."
p. 231 (vol 3.) "cf Ihram"
par 2. [The Moslem] "may knot his tgae"
[loin cloth] "& tie it with a cord, &
he may gird his waist."
p. 232. par 3. [It is forbidden] "to knot
the Rida, or shoulder-cloth." [Never-
theless, says Burton, in spite of what
El Khatib [= the [surname?] of name
by which Mohammed of Shirbin
is known] says the rida is
generally knotted at the right
side in the style "Nishah". See vol 3.
p 124, & note on vol 3. p.232. Cf on
wishah = a woman's broad belt, usually.
Burton. Ar. Nights (1894) vol 6. p 356. note 4.]
