Must I Cover My Head When the Adhan is Given?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Must women cover their heads when the adhan is given?

Answer: Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

No, this is neither obligatory nor specifically recommended. However, it is a praiseworthy voluntary expression of respect for one of the major symbols of our religion–the call to prayer (adhan).

And Allah alone gives success.
