Replying to the Iqaamah:

One will reply to the iqaamah in the same way as one would reply to the azaan. However, when replying to Qad Qaamatis-Salaah, one will say:

أَقَامَهَا الله وَأَدَامَهَا

May Allah Ta‘ala establish (salaah) and preserve it.

عن أبي أمامة أو بعض أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إن بلالا أخذ في الإقامة فلما أن قال قد قامت الصلاة قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أقامها الله وأدامها (سنن أابي داود #528)

Hazrat Abu Umaamah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was calling out the iqaamah. When he reached the words ‘Qad Qaamatis-Salaah’, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied by saying ‘Aqaamahallaahu wa Adaamahaa’.

Sunnats and Aadaab of Iqaamah:

1. Call out the iqaamah with hadr (i.e. reciting it in a swift manner)

عن جابر رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال لبلال إذا أذنت فترسل وإذا أقمت فاحدر (سنن الترمذي رق#195)

Hazrat Jaabir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) addressed Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) saying, “When you call out the azaan, then call it out with tarassul (gradually with pausing after each sentence), and when you call out the iqaamah, then call it out quickly.”

2. Each part of the words of the iqaamah will be recited in sets of two. One will join each set of the words of iqaamah and will not pause in between each set (i.e. after completing the set, one will pause).

Words of Iqaamah:

The words of the iqaamah are the same as the words of azaan. However, after حَيَّ عَلَى الْفَلاَح (Hayya `alal-Falaah) one will say:

قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلاَة قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلاَة

The salaah has been established

عن عبد الله بن زيد قال كان أذان رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم شفعا شفعا في الأذان والإقامة (سنن الترمذي #194)

Hazrat Abdullah bin Zaid (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that the azaan and iqaamah of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) were in sets of two.

Du‘aa at the time of the Maghrib azaan:

One should recite the following Du‘aa after the azaan of Maghrib.[1]

اللّهُمَّ إِنَّ هَذَا إِقْبَالُ لَيْلِكَ وَإِدْبَارُ نَهَارِكَ وَأَصْوَاتُ دُعَاتِكَ فَاغْفِرْ لِي

O Allah! The night is entering and the day is leaving, and these are the voices of Your servants calling out to You in du‘aa, forgive me.

عن أم سلمة رضي الله عنها قالت علمني رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أن أقول عند أذان المغرب اللهم إن هذا إقبال ليلك وإدبار نهارك وأصوات دعاتك فاغفر لي (سنن أبي داود #530)

Hazrat Ummu Salamah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught me to recite the following du‘aa at the time of the Maghrib azaan:

اللّهُمَّ إِنَّ هَذَا إِقْبَالُ لَيْلِكَ وَإِدْبَارُ نَهَارِكَ وَأَصْوَاتُ دُعَاتِكَ فَاغْفِرْ لِي


[1]الظاهر أن يقال هذا بعد جواب الأذان أو فى أثنائه (مرقاة)

Du‘aa after the azaan:

One should also recite the following Du‘aa:

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَّ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ رَضِيتُ باللهِ رَبًّا وَبِمُحَمَّدٍ رَسُولاً وَبِالْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا

I bear testimony that there is no god except Allah who is alone and there is no partner for Him. And Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is His servant and messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my lord, Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) as a messenger and Islam as my religion.

Du‘aa after the azaan:

After the azaan, one should recite durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and recite the following du‘aa:

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ آتِ مُحَمَّدًا الْوَسِيْلَةَ وَالْفَضِيلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَحْمُودًا الَّذِي وَعَدْتَّهُ إنَّكَ لاَتُخْلِفُ الْمِيْعَاد

O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and of the established salaah, bestow upon Hazrat Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) the ‘waseelah’ (stage in Jannah) and ‘Fadheelah’ (special grace), and grant him the “Maqaam Mahmood” (the honor of interceding to Allah Ta‘ala to commence the reckoning for the entire creation on the day of Qiyaamah) which you promised him, indeed you do not go against your promise.

Replying to the azaan:

The azaan is among the salient symbols of Islam. When azaan holds such great importance in Deen, then we should show respect and appreciation to Allah Ta‘ala by replying to the azaan and not being engaged in any worldly talk at that time. The Fuqahaa have written that it is makrooh to engage in worldly talk at the time of azaan.

1. When one hears the azaan, one should reply to the azaan by repeating the words that the muazzin has called out.

For example, when one hears the muazzin saying, “الله أكبر الله أكبر (Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar)”, he should reply by also saying, “الله أكبر الله أكبر (Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar)”.

How to call out the azaan:

If one is calling out the azaan of Fajr, then one would recite the following twice after saying حي على الفلاح (Hayya ‘alal Falaah):

اَلصَّلاَةُ خَيرٌ مِّنَ النَّوْمْ

Salaah is better than sleep.

عن محمد بن عبد الملك بن أبى محذورة عن أبيه عن جده قال قلت يا رسول الله علمنى سنة الأذان … فإن كان صلاة الصبح قلت الصلاة خير من النوم الصلاة خير من النوم (سنن أبي داود #500)

Hazrat Abu Mahdhoorah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that on one occasion, he said to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam): “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), teach me the sunnah method of calling out the azaan.” …. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: “If it is the azaan of Fajr, then add the words الصلاة خير من النوم (assalaatu khairum minan naum) twice (after حي على الفلاح hayya alal falaah).”

How to call out the azaan:

اَللهُ أَكْبَرْ اللهُ أَكْبَرْ

Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest.

اَللهُ أَكْبَرْ اَللهُ أَكْبَرْ

Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest.

Note: The letter ر (raa) in the first أكبر (akbar) can be read with a sukoon without joining it to the word ألله (Allah), or with a fathah by joining it to the word الله (Allah). To read it in any other way will be against the Sunnah.

Aadaab at the time of calling out the azaan:

7. Call out the azaan in a loud voice.

عن عبد الله بن زيد رضي الله عنه قال … فأخبرته بما رأيت فقال إنها لرؤيا حق إن شاء الله فقم مع بلال فألق عليه ما رأيت فليؤذن به فإنه أندى صوتا منك (سنن أبي داود #499)

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin Zaid (radhiallahu ‘anhu) reports … “I then informed Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) about the dream I had seen (and the manner of calling out the azaan that I was taught in the dream). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Certainly it is a true dream Insha Allah. Stand up with Hazrat Bilaal (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and tell him the words of azaan you had heard in your dream, so that he may call out the azaan with these words, since his voice is louder than yours.”
