Adhan and Ighamah

935. It is Mustahab for man and woman to say Adhan and Iqamah before offering daily prayers. But before prayers of Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha, it is Mustahab to say “As-Salah” three times and in other obligatory prayers, three times they should say “As-Salah” with the intention of Reja.

936. It is recommended that Adhan 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.

937. Adhan consists of the following 18 sentences: Allahu Akbar (Allah is greater than any description) four times; Ash hadu an la ilaha illal lah two times; Ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasu lul lah two times; Hayya’alas Salah two times; Hayya’alal Falah two times; Hayya’ala Khayril ‘Amal two times; Allahu Akbar two times; La ilaha illal lah two times. As regard to Iqamah, it consists 17 sentences. In Iqamah, Allahu Akbar is reduced in the beginning of twice, and at the end, La ilaha illal lah to once, and after Hayya‘ala Khayril ‘Amal, Qadqa matis Salah must be added two times.

938. Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu’minina Aliyyan Waliyyullah is not a part of either Adhan or Iqamah. But it is preferable that it is pronounced after Ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulul lah with the
Niyyat of Qurbat.
