Kufi is the traditional African name for "hat" which originally comes from the word for
"crown." However many Americans often use the word "kufi" to describe the hat which is
worn by Muslims. In other parts of the world it is known as taqiyah or `araqiyeh in Arabic,
takke in Turkish, topi in Urdu and peci in Indonesian.

The Kufi – A Prayer Time Essential

Muhammad (SAW) wore a kufi. You will find that many Muslims wear these caps not
only during prayer but most of the day as well. The significance of this is affirmation of
the belief that Allah is present everywhere. Covering the head is a sign of humility before

Wearing a kufi has many benefits. When worn during prayer, it helps to prevent the hair
from falling down on one’s face and disturbing concentration when praying. When worn
in general, kufis help distinguish you from others and serve as a reminder to exhibit
exemplary behavior in every situation.

There are many different styles of kufis. While some are simple white caps with no
brims, others are a bit boxy. Some even look like hairnets. These are often made of
pure, plain cotton. Some are embroidered. Kufis tend to have a round shape (although
some are oval), and they are available in a variety of colors.

The kufi comes in various styles to suit your mood, style and outfit. Some are warmer
than others, and favor certain climates. You may choose to go with embroidered kufis or
those that look like skull caps or beanies. You could opt for those that are machine
made or crocheted by hand. Some kufis have a hard shell surface, while others are soft
and sit well on the forehead. There are even unique kufis made from macramé mesh! Home Page
