    Where can I buy crochet taqiyahs? (Those Muslim men headcaps)

    I'm not sure crochet taqiyah is the word for them, its the term I get after googling a bit, but its those headcaps that Muslim men wear. They're quite snug, seemed to be crocheted, cover the head.

    I've tried TST, Jordan, those sorts of places; even the side streets, but nothing. I wasn't expecting to find a store just selling those, not sure what I was looking for then, but I'm sure there has to be a place to buy them. Anyone know where?

    As the word is arabic (mean hat or head covering) there is no official english spelling. If you search for taghiyyah you will also find many online shops selling them.

    Best bet : hang around the Mosque and you will find many guys wearing them during prayer time. Ask one of them.

    good advise.

    There are one or two shops in Chung King Mansions that sell religious materials - they may have them.
