11. Entrance Into Prayer (Iqamah)

When this call is uttered, the worshippers get ready for prayer and inaugurate it with an announcement called ‘Iqamah’. The sentences here are the same as those of the Adhan above with two differences:

 

(a)The Iqamah is said in a faster and less audible voice; part (1) to be reduced the same as part (6) being repeated only twice, while all the rest only once. However, the words “Qad Qamati-s-salah” should be said twice immediately following part (5) and before part (6).

 

            ‘Qad Qamati-s-salah’ (Prayer is ready).  

            Then part (6) and (7) should follow to the end as usual.
