In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful




The Iqama

After the Adhan; when the muslims are assembled at the place of worship, a second call (iqamah) is recited by one of the group. This signals the start of the congregational salah. It is similar to adhan except that it is recited faster but in a lower tone.

Here are the words to the iqama:


God is Great, God is Great
اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ، اللَّهُ اكْبَرُ    
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar
I bear witness that there is no God But Allah
اشْهَدُ انْ لَّآ اِلهَ اِلَّا اللَّهُ
Ash-hadu allaa illaha ilAllah
I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah
اشْهَدُ انَّ مُحَمَّدً ارَّسُوْلُ اللَّهِ
Ash-hadu anna Muhammadar Rasul-Allah
Come to the prayer
حَىَّ عَلَى الصَّلَاةِ
Hayya 'alas salaah
Come to the Success
حَىَّ عَلَى الْفَلَاحِ،
Hayya 'alal falaah
The prayer is being established,    the prayer is being established
قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلوةُ
، قَدْ قَامَتِ الصَّلوةُ
Qad qaamatis salaah, qad qaamatis salah
Allah is Great, Allah is Great
اللَّهُ اَكْبَرُ، اللَّهُ اَكْبَرُ
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar
There is no God But Allah
لَآ اِلهَ اِلَّا اللَّهُ
La illaha il-Allah


*When the Muadhdhin says "qad qaamatis salah", one is to say:

May Allah establish it and make it permanent
اَقَامَهَا اللَّهُ وَ اَدَامَهَا
aqamahAllahu wa adaamaha
