Topi or Religious Hat

My object is a topi and my parents bought it from Bangladesh.
A topi is a religious hat that Muslims need when they have to pray their 5 daily prayers to Allah (PBUH). My parents bought my topi in Bangladesh and brought it to America as a memory. My parents chose to give me the topi because every boy who is Muslim needs it. All of the Muslim prophets wore it too. Topi’s have many different decorations on it and they are mostly made out of cotton fabric. I still want to know why prophets like prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had to wear it? 
This topi is really important to me because it represents my culture and my family.
