    baba, in the new testament of the bible ( Jesus's teachings) there are no precepts that men or women should wear a head covering. There was a mandate, however , in the catholic church, that women have to wear a hat in church. That was abolished, however, in the later 60s.

    I always wear a hat, in the winter to keep me warm, and in the summer to protect me from the sun, nothing to do with my religion.

    you're right,terry

    Since I have a solar panel on top of my head, I need to wear hats for protection and warmth.



    Here's a little information I found about why some faiths wear head coverings:
    Jewish men only started wearing Kippas about 1800 years ago (Moses, King David and other biblical heroes probably didn't wear it). The Talmud tells us that one of the Talmudic Sages, Rav Nachman began to wear a head covering to remind himself that G-d is always above him (figuratively). The fad quickly caught on, soon all Jewish men were wearing the cap. 

    The taqiyah (also spelt "tagiya"; Arabic?????‎ / ALA-LC??q?yahUrduHindi "topi"; ???? / ALA-LC: “?op?”) is a short, rounded skullcap. They are often worn for religious purposes, for example, Muslims believe that Muhammad used to keep his head covered; therefore making it mustahabb, which means 'commendable' to cover the head in order to emulate him.[1] Muslims often wear them during Salat, or the five daily prayers.

    When worn by itself, the taqiyah can be any color. However, particularly in Arab countries, when worn under the keffiyeh headscarf, they are kept in a traditional white. Some Muslims wrap a turban around the cap, called an amamah in Arabic, which is often done by Shia and Sufi Muslims. In theUnited States and Britain taqiyas are usually referred to as "kufis".[2]

    Also interesting to note is that each country and region has it own unique tagiyah.  

     And, finally: 

    The turban is known as a very religious millinery hat. Though turbans have been around for thousands of years, the first mentioning of them was in the fourteenth century at the end of the Moorish occupation in Spain. The Prophet Muhammad is believed to have worn a turban in white, the most holy colour. Many Muslim men choose to wear green, because it represents paradise, especially among followers of Sufism. In parts of North Africa, where blue is common, the shade of a turban can signify the tribe of the wearer. There have been over sixty-six types of Turbans. Hindus tend to reserve their turbans for ceremonies and significant occasions, whereas Sikh men wear them all the time. In Islamic countries, the headgear is regarded as Sunnah Mu'akkadah (Confirmed Tradition).

    The origins of the turban is uncertain. Early Persians wore a conical cap encircled by bands of cloth, which historians have suggested was developed to become the modern turban, but other theories suggest it was first widely worn in Egypt. Sikh men commonly wear a peaked turban that serves for the purpose of covering their long hair, which in respect for God's creation is never cut. Devout Sikhs do not cut their beards either, so many instead twist them and tuck them up into their turbans. A style of turban called a phakeolis was also worn by soldiers of the Byzantine army.



    my cats' vet always wears a turban. it's white.
