​​ADHAN (Call to Prayer):
The Adhan is an announcement of the prayer times and it is used to call Muslims to the prayers.  The person who gives the Adhan is called the Mu'adhin (Caller). While calling for prayer, he stands facing the Qiblah and raises his hands to his ears.

Iqamah is another call to prayer that is said just before the actual start of Salah.  Iqamah is exactly like the Adhan, except that after "Hayya alal Falah” the following is added:

"Qad qamatis Salah"      This means:            (The prayer has begun)
Iqamah is said in a lower voice and much faster than the Adhan. It is also directed to the group that is already present for the prayer.


 









​Arabic transliteration of the adhan is as follows:
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah. Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah.
Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah. Ashadu anna Muhammadan Rasool Allah.
Hayya 'ala-s-Salah. Hayya 'ala-s-Salah.
Hayya 'ala-l-Falah. Hayya 'ala-l-Falah.
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
La ilaha illa Allah.

The English translation of the adhan is:
God is Great! God is Great! God is Great! God is Great!
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God.
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God.
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
Hurry to the prayer. Hurry to the prayer.
Hurry to salvation. Hurry to salvation.
God is Great! God is Great!
There is no god except the One God.

For the pre-dawn (fajr) prayer, the following phrase is inserted prior to the final repetition of Allahu Akbar / God is Great:

As-salatu Khayrun Minan-nawm. As-salatu Khayrun Minan-nawm.
Prayer is better than sleep. Prayer is better than sleep.
