The White Lion is a rare color mutation of the Kruger subspecies of lion (Panthera leo krugeri), a rare species of lion only to be found in a 200 square mile area called Timbavati in South Africa.

The Prophet’s (pbuh) favorite color and turban

The color most pleasing to Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) was green, while some said it was white.  With respect to clothing, the Prophet (peace be upon him) encouraged men to wear white in numerous hadiths.  Thus, according to the sunnah, it is preferred to wear white, as well as black and green. [Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]

While wearing a green turban is not a specific sunnah, wearing green garments in general is from the sunnah, so one could wear a green turban to fulfill that.

It is important to note that the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) himself wore different types of clothing from different places, and of different colors and designs, not just one style or color, though there would be nothing wrong if one chose to did this.

Besides the lightning that we see from Earth, above the thunderclouds there are powerful flashes directed into space. They are divided into red sprites, “blue jets” and the elves. The shape and color of the flashes depends on the height at which they occur. This phenomenon has not been studied well for one reason: from the Earth, flashes can only be observed at a low altitude.
