Question: I had read once that a kufi is recommended to be worn even inside the home as a sign of modesty. Is this accurate and what is the evidence for it?
Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
It would be from superior adab with the sunna to keep your head covered even when at home, if and when reasonably possible.
Doing so would be an expression of love and submissiveness in following the way of the Holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) as we know that covering the head was from his sunna, even whilst at home. [Munawi, Fayd al-Qadir]
And Allah alone gives success.
