Wearing A Topi When Going To The Toilet

Question

Is it sunnah to wear the topi when going to the toilet?

Answer

It is Mustahab to wear a Topi when going to the toilet.

Ayesha Radiallahu Anha narrates that when Nabi  Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam would enter the toilet, he would cover his head.
(As Sunan Al Kubra, vol.1, pg.96)

Habib bin Salih Radiallahu Anhu narrates that when Nabi Sallallahu Alyhi Wa Sallam entered the toilet, he would wear shoes and cover his head.
(As Sunan Al Kubra, vol.1, pg.96)

Show respect in front of Allah, for I certainly cover my head when entering the toilet, out of respect for Allah Ta’ala.
