Taqiyah or Kufeya
It is a white cotton hat which is worn directly over the hair. Wearing the taqiyah keeps the Ghutrah or Shumagh form slipping off the head.
Ghutra is a square shaped cotton fabric. It is folded diagonally to form a triangular shape. When it is worn, Gutrah is also folded from the front.
Shumagh is the same as Ghutra. It is folded into a triangular shape and placed on the top of the head.
On the top of Ghutra or Shumag, doubled black rope-like cord called igal is worn in order to hold ghutra in place.
