One of my friends who is learned told me that topee is not sunnah according to the hanafi madhab, is this correct? I also heard Colonel Ameer-udeen (from UK) say that its is makrooh to pray without a topee (I know he is not an `aalim)?
Also, is the sunnah qamees supposed to have a slit in it? Is there ikhtilaaf on this issue?
Jazaakum Allaahu khair
