  1. 1)If a musalli gives Adhan without a topi (headgear), the Adhan is valid.[1]


  1. 2)The wearing of the topi is a sunnah of Rasulullah Salallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam and his companions Radiallahu Anhum .It is also the dressing of the pious. For more details on the topi and its emphasized importance with academic references, you may refer to THE CROWN OF A BELIVER by Mufti Husain Kadodia (Damat Barakatuhu) which is also available in PDF form.
