Allah says in the Qur'an, "O Children
of Adam, take your adornment (by
wearing proper clothing) for every
mosque." (Al-A'raf 6:31) The word
"adornment" here refers to covering the
`awrah , while the word "mosque"
means "Prayer." Therefore, the whole
phrase means "Cover your `awrah for
every Prayer."

Generally speaking, men's `awrah
(private parts) is what is between navel
and thigh whereas women’s `awrah is
the whole body except face and hands.
Covering of head is not mandatory but
based on customs of the places they
may live in.

In the old days, a person would always
wear a hat, cap or turban when he
would receive guests or go out to work
or in the market. The same assumption
was made while standing in front of
God or Allah, who deserves more
respect than the fellow humans. This no
longer applies in this day and age.

Having said that, there is no harm in
wearing a cap or a turban.
