Adhaan and Iqamah
925. It is Mustahab for man and woman to say Adhaan and Iqamah before offering daily obligatory prayers, but for other than that like Namaz – e –Ayaat and Mustahab prayers “As – Salah” should be said three times.
926. It is Mustahab that Adhaan be pronounced in the right ear of the child, and Iqamah in its left ear, on the day it is born or before the umbilical cord is cast off.
927. Adhaan consists of the following 18 sentences:
Allahu Akbar - four times
Ash Hadu An La ilaha illallah - two times
Ash Hadu Anna Mohammadan Rasoolullah - two times
Hayya ‘Alas Salah - two times
Hayya ‘Alal Falah - two times.
Hayya ‘Ala Khayril ‘Amal - two times
Allahu Akbar - two times
La ilaha illallah - two times
However, Iqamah is consists of 17 sentences. In Iqamah, Allahu Akbar is reduced in the beginning to twice, and at the end, La ilaha illallah to once, and after Hayya ‘Ala Khayril ‘Amal, “Qad Qamatis Salah” must be added two times.
928. Ash Hadu Anna ‘Aliyyan Waliyyullah is not a part of either Adhaan or Iqamah. But it is preferable that it is pronounced after Ash Hadu Anna Mohammadan Rasoolullah with the Niyyat of Qurbat.
