Kufis

A Kufi is a small, brimless, knit or crocheted skull cap traditionally worn by Muslims, African Christians, and African Jews. Many Muslims believe that Muhammad kept his head covered, thus to follow his example depicts a holy act signifying religious status.

Prayer Rugs
For centuries, many religions have used prayer rugs as part of daily worship practices.

As used by Muslims, prayer rugs are small pieces of fabric or carpeting placed between the ground and the worshiper. The rug has strong symbolic meaning and must be placed in a clean location during prayers, reflecting humility, a holy act, and respect to God.

Also in reverence to God, many who observe the Catholic faith kneel on small tufted cushions built into the pews.

Although Wiccan followers consider a circle to be their holy space, many contemporary worshipers place a prayer rug inside their designated circle.
