Is wearing a turban or a headscarf or cap in salaat obligatory or not?

Zaad ul Musalleen: A series of fatwaa on the Salaah by al-Allaamah ibn Uthaymeen

Introducing, bi idhnillaah, a selection of fatwaa on the salaah by the Imaam, the Salafi, al-Faqeeh, al-Allaamah Aboo Abdillaah Muhammad ibn Saaleh ibn Uthaymeen, from the book “Mukhtaaraat min fataawa as-Salaah” published by Dar ibn ul Jawzee (Damaam, K.S.A.) 



[Q. 2] Is wearing a turban or a headscarf or cap in salaat obligatory or not?

[Q. 2] The wearing of these things in prayer is not obligatory since covering the head is not from the conditions of the salaat. However if you are in a land where the custom is to wear this, and this is regarded from the completion of a person’s dress, then it is necessary to wear it due to the saying of Allaah, “O Children ofAadam, take your adornment while praying…” [al-A’raaf: 31]

So if part of beautification is that a person wears something on his head such as a turban or a headscarf or a cap, then it is recommended for him to wear that during the prayer. As for when you are in land of a people who do not have this as a custom, and this is not from their beautification then stay as you are.
