Hi Friends Ca A Sikh Wear A Turban Without A Beard Or Long Hair Is Permissible Or Not
Well the first requirement is uncut hair.If someone want to wear it as hobby then its o.k. but I don't think it should be associated with sikhism
Coudl not a Sikh wear whatever he wanted to? Let me ask another question, Would a Sikh want to wear a turban without keeping hair? And, Why?
And I ask these as totally open questions. No hidden agenda on my part. Moreover there are several threads that speak to kesh and dastar that give us some insight into the answers.
keeping hair is a "sikhism" belief
turban is cultural and historical
please donot mix them up
namaste thanks , i just curious because i have seen sihk with no beard but with turbans , they just told me they could not wear beard because of work policies , thanks again
There are plenty of sikhs who just wear turban for society.for many its a disgrace that their son is not wearing turban so even after cutting hair and beard they just wear it.
On this note:
(hello, all, I'm new here, so...)
Can a Sikh keep the 5 Ks without wearing a turban?
Thank you in advance,
Yes a sikh can keep 5ks withour wearing turban.But still a sikh should cover his/her hair
Much thanks for the response.
I ask because my line of work demands that I wear a tight-fitting sterilized cap for patient and provider safety.
Again, much thanks,
If your work demands tight-fitting sterilised cap for patients then there is nothing wrong in wearing it.Just tie a cloth like patka or banadana over your hair and the wear cap.
I think kds is right about this. But on the light side, I remember when I broke my arm in 4 places several years ago. The doctor in the emergency room was wearing a big red turban and a really neat beard. I was a bad patient refusing to have an operation. I wanted a cast. He eventually had to really yell to make me come around. The turban however made him look very impressive The nurses worshiped him and were completely at his command.
I imagine that it would be impressive!
You know, I don't recall having seen any Sikh men in the area, or, rather, I don't recall having seen any men in turbans.
Somewhat distressing, as I am attempting to learn as much about sikhi as I can. It's difficult without someone to talk to locally.
I am hoping that it's just a geographic thing, or that I am awake at the odd hours.
