Is it a sunnah to wear a cap (or turban)
especially during salat? I see many 'learned' brothers simply say that this is not sunnah
and therefore pray without covering the head. Does Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi wassalam
wear a turban or cap all the time even outside salat? Is this an Arab tradition or
something that Allah recommended Rasul SAW to do as an example to his ummah?
Praise be to Allaah.
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
O Children of Adam! Take your adornment (by wearing your clean
clothes) while praying
If covering the head is customarily regarded as a part of adornment in
a particular country, then the head should be covered, otherwise it does not have to be
covered. And Allaah knows best.
