The Iqamat-Second Call For Prayer

Ruling:

The Iqamah (The proclamation of the beginning of the prayer) is a necessary Sunnah of the five obligatory prayers, whether performed during its due time or being made-up late. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
مَا مِنْ ثَلَاثَةٍ فِي قَرْيَةٍ وَلَا بَدْوٍ لَا تُقَامُ فِيهِمُ الصَّلَاةُ إِلَّا قَدِ اسْتَحْوَذَ عَلَيْهِمُ الشَّيْطَانُ ، فَعَلَيْكَ بِالْجَمَاعَةِ، فَإِنَّمَا يَأْكُلُ الذِّئْبُ مِنَ الْغَنَمِ الْقَاصِيَةَ
There is no group of there in a village or desert that do not hold congregational  prayer except Satan will overpower them. So adhere to the congregational ; since the wolf eats the lone sheep. (Ahmad, Abu Dawud, An-Nasai)

Iqama Wording:

Its wording as narrated by ‘Abdullah bin Zayd who saw the Adhan in his dream is:
«اَللهُ أَكْبَرُ، اللهُ أَكْبَرُ»

Allaahu Akbar, Allaah Akbar.

“Allah is the Most Great, Allah is the Most Great.”
«أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ اِلَّا اللهُ»

Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illaallaah.

“I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah.”
«أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدَ رَّسُولُ اللهِ»

Ash-hadu anna Muhammadan rasoolullah.

“I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
«حَيَّ عَلَى الصَّلَاةِ، حَيَّ عَلَي الْفَلَاحِ»

Hayya ‘alaas-salaah, Hayya ‘alaal-falaah.

“Come to the prayer. Come to the success.”
«قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلَاةُ، قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلَاةُ »

Qad qaamitis-salaah, qad qaamitis-salaah.

“The prayer is to begin, the prayer is to begin.”
«اَللهُ أَكْبَرُ، اَللهُ أَكْبَرُ »

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar.

Allah is the Most Great, Allah is the Most Great.”
«لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ»

Laa ilaaha illaallaah.

“There is no god except Allah.”

Two Notes:

The Imam has more right to call the iqamat, while the Moazzin has more right to call the Adhan; due to narration:
«اَلْـمُؤَذِّنُ أَمْلَكُ بِالْأَذَانِ، وَالْإِمَامُ أَمْلَكُ بِالْإِقَامَةِ»
The Moazzin has more right to the Adhan, and the Imam has more right to the Iqamah. (Al-Tirmithi)

In the chain of the narrators of this Hadith, there is an unknown narrators, yet the majority of the scholars of Fiqh act according to it. Another narration on the authority of ‘Ali or ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with them, supports the above mentioned narration.

Thus the Moazzin has more right to call the Adhan then anyone else when its due time begins, without asking for permission to do so.

Recommendations:

  • 1: It is recommended that the Athan be recited slowly. As for the Iqamah, it should be delivered more swiftly.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said to Bilal:
«إِذَا أَذَّنْتَ فَتَرَسَّلْ، وَإِذَا أَقَمْتَ فَاحْدُرْ»
When you call the Adhan, do so calmly, and with the Iqama be more swift.

  • 2: The one hearing the Adhan or the Iqamat should silently repeat what the Moazzin and the one who delivers the Iqama recites ; except when he hears:

«حَيَّ عَلَى الصَّلَاةِ، حَيَّ عَلَى الْفَلَاحِ»

Hayya ‘alaas-salaah, Hayyaa ‘alaal-falaah

“Come to the prayer. Come to the success.”

He says:
«لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِااللهِ»
Laa hawla wa laa qwwwatta illaa billaah.

There is neither power nor strength except form Allah.

And when the statement:
«قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلَاةُ»

Qad qaamitis-salaah.

“The prayer is to begin.”

Is uttered, one says:
«أَقَامَهَا اللهُ وَأَدَامَهَا»

Aqaamahaallaah wa adaamahaa.

“May Allah maintain it and make it endure.”

This is because of the narration that Abu Dawud recorded, that Bilal, may Allah be pleased with him, was announcing the a Iqama and said: “The prayer is to begin.”

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
«أَقَامَهَا اللهُ وَأَدَامَهَا»
May Allah maintain it and make it endure.

 The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

إِذَا سَمِعْتُمُ الْمُؤَذِّنَ فَقُولُوا مِثْلَ مَا يَقُولُ ثُمَّ صَلُّوا عَلَيَّ ، فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ صَلَّى عَلَيَّ صَلَاةً صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ بِهَا عَشْرًا
ثُمَّ سَلُوا لِيَ الْوَسِيلَةَ فَإِنَّهَا مَنْزِلَةٌ فِي الْجَنَّةِ لَا تَنْبَغِي إِلَّا لِعَبْدٍ مِنْ عِبَادِ اللَّهِ وَأَرْجُو أَنْ أَكُونَ أَنَا هُوَ
وَمَنْ سَأَلَ لِيَ الْوَسِيلَةَ حَلَّتْ لَهُ شَفَاعَتِي

if you hear the caller, say what he says then ask Allah, then say Salat for me, since whoever says Salat for me one time, Allah will say Salat for him ten times. Then ask Allah, to grant me Wasilah, for it is the rank in Paradise that only one of the servants of Allah will be granted. I hope that I would be that servant . And whoever asks Wasilah for me, my intercession will be due to him.

  • 3: Supplicating for good after the Adhan. In a narration recorded by At-Tirmithi

The Prophet ﷺ said:
«اَلدُّعَاءُ لَا يُرَدُّ بَيْنَ الْأَذَانِ وَالْإِقَامَةِ»
The supplication between the Adhan and the Iqamat is not refused.

It is narrated that when the Adhan for the Maghrib prayer is delivered, one should say:
«اَللَّهُمَّ هَذَا إِقْبَالُ لَيْلِكَ وَإِدْبَارُ نَهَارِكَ، وَأَصْوَاتُ دُعَاتِكَ فَاغْفِرْلِي»

Allaahumma hadhaa iqbalu laylike wa idbaaru nahaarika, wa aswaatu du’aatika faghfirlee.

“O Allah! This is the falling of your night, the passing of Your day and the voices of the praying people onto you, so forgive me.”
