wearing black headgear is sunnat
do you mean this type but in black?
which ones ? any pics ?
some friends asked me why do indian/pakistani Hanafi [mainly sunni] scholars wear these black caps - particularly those from UP and Bihar?
from Dhahabi's manaqib abu Hanifah:
Abdu'l Wahhab ibn Ziyad  says: 'I saw Abu Hanifah in Kufah and he was wearing a tall black cap.'
1. zahid al-kawthari: in kitab ibn abi'l `awwam, it is written as Abdu'l WaHid, which is actually the correct one.
2. in the text, it is written 'Tawilah' and imam zahid al-kawthari comments: it is a cap [qalansuwah] which was the fashion in those days. abu `amr al-kindi has mentioned it in a couplet. also as it is mentioned in al-alusi's kashf at-Turrah [pg.284]. imam Abu Hanifah's shaykh Hammad ibn Abi Sulayman would also wear it.
