Women covering their hair at the time of Azaan

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it appropriate to cover head specifically for the Adhan or not? Women cover their heads with scarves during the Adhan and specifically for the Adhan. These women say it is respectful to do so. However, someone else said that this is something new in Islam and wasn’t there before.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
