Since the time of the first Suru of the Sikh religion – Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the turban has been an important part of the Sikh religion. All ten Guru wore dastar, and the tenth Suru Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, made it obligatory for all Sikhs not to cut their hair and cover their heads, which had a profound and spiritual meaning.
Since Sikhs are not allowed to cut hair on any part of the body, dastar is used as a means of keeping hair on the scalp strong. Guru Gobind Singh Ji tied himself with a beautiful round headband on the heads of both his eldest sons Ajit Singh and Jujhar Singh.

Wearing hats is common among Sikhs, including women. It is also worn by Hindu monks. The hat serves as a religious ceremony, involving the Shia Muslims, who view the wearing of the hat as a Sunnah mu’akkadah (certified tradition).
The hat is also a traditional hat for Sufi scholars. In addition, hats have often been worn by officials, regardless of their religious background. The origin of the turbans is uncertain. Some ancient civilizations, such as ancient India, Mesopotamia, Sumer, and Babylon, apparently used amulets. and Byzantine immigrants, as shown in the Greek ideas of the 10th century in the province of Cappadocia in modern-day Turkey, still wore their Greek-speaking descendants in the early 20th century. A Muslim prophet, Muhammad, who lived 570–632, wore a white turban, a very sacred color. The style of hat he presented was a cap tied to a cloth; this hat is known as Imamah and has been imitated by Muslim kings and scholars throughout history. Shiah pastors today wear white hats unless they are descendants of the Prophet Muhammad or Sayyid while wearing a black veil. Many Muslim men prefer to wear green, because it symbolizes paradise, especially among Sufism followers. In some parts of North Africa, where blue is usually blue, the shade of a hat may reflect the color of the wearer.
