Eating without a topee

Q: I bought your book Sunnats where in chapter sunnat of eating it is written it is not makhruh in eating without a cap. I doubt whether it is a printing mistake.


A: This is right, though it is better to wear the topee in a place where people generally wear it when they have meals.

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