Benefit: Covering the Head in Prayer

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

 Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Sāliḥ al-‘Uthaymīn (رحمه الله) said: “Covering the head is optional, since a man’s ʿawrah is between his navel and his knees; however, whenever a man needs to pray, he should wear the finest clothing that his compatriots wear to pray.”

Translated by: Musa Shaleem Mohammed

لا يجب تغطية الرأس لأن العورة الواجب سترها ما بين السرة والركبة ولكن ينبغي للإنسان إذا أراد أن يصلى أن يصلى بأحسن لبسة يلبسها الناس في زمانه ومكانه
