At special times, men often wear a bisht or mishlah over the thobe.
These are long white, brown or black cloaks trimmed in gold.
A man's headdress consists of three things: the tagia, a small white cap that keeps the gutra from slipping off the head; the gutra itself, which is a large square of cloth; and the igal, a doubled black cord that holds the gutra in place. The gutra is usually made of cotton and traditionally is either all white or a red and white checked.
The gutra is worn folded into a triangle and centred on the head.
Many attitudes and traditions are centuries-old, derived from Arab civilization.Following the principle of "enjoining good and forbidding wrong", there are many limitations and prohibitions on behaviour and dress which are strictly enforced both legally and socially, often more so than in other Muslim countries.Alcoholic beverages are prohibited, for example, and there is no theatre or public exhibition of films. Five times each day, Muslims are called to prayer from the minarets of mosques scattered throughout the country.(In the privacy of the home behavior can be far looser, and reports from the Daily Mail and Wiki Leaks indicate that the ruling Saudi Royal family applies a different moral code to itself, indulging in parties, drugs and sex.) The kingdom uses not the international Gregorian calendar, but the lunar Islamic calendar, with the start of each lunar month determined not ahead of time by astronomical calculation, but only after the crescent moon is sighted by the proper religious authorities.In accordance with Wahhabi doctrine, for many years only two religious holidays were publicly recognized, ʿĪd al-Fiṭr and ʿĪd al-Aḍḥā.
