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

A kufi is a brimless, short and rounded cap that Muslim men wear.
The Prophet 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 God.

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
