AOA, I am living in Riyadh. I follow Hanafi Mazhab. Once i started Iqamat for Asar paryers & said it same manner like Azaan. One of a person stopped me and said you did in wrong way. Then he said Iqamat again and said all sayings one time. After prayers he said ‘Did you never notice how iqamat is said in Masjid Harram Makkah”. I tried to explain to him that in Hanafi Hazhab Iqamat is said in same way as Azaan but with addition of Qad-qama-tis-Salah (two times). He said its wrong. Kindly give me reference of some Haddis or any other proper reference based on which Hanafi rule for Iqama is built.

Answer

(Fatwa: 662/514/D=1431)

 

According to Hanafi Fiqh saying the words of Azan twice is sunnah, which is proved by hadith. From the evidences of Ahnaf the strongest evidence is the dream of Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Zaid ibn Abd Rabbih (رضى الله تعالى عنه) in which he was taught the words of Azan. Then the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) ordered Hadhrat Bilal (رضى الله تعالى عنه) to say Azan according to that dream. It is mentioned in Musannaf ibn Abi Shaiba:

فيه: فأذن مثنى و أقام مثنى و قعد قعدةً الخ . (مصنف ابن ابى شيبه 2/302)

وقال دقیق العید فی سندہ: و هذا رجاله رجال الصحيح ، و هو متصل على مذهب الجماعة في عدالة الصحابة و أن جهالة أسمائهم لا تضر (آثار السنن للنيموى 1/52)

Second evidence:

روي الترمذي عن عبدالله بن زيد قال : كان أذان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم شفعاً شفعاً في الأذان و الإقامة (ترمذى شريف :1/27 ، باب ماجاء أن الإقامة مثنى مثنى).

Third evidence:

عن الأسود بن يزيد عن بلالٍ أنه كان يثني الأذان و يثني الإقامة . (طحاوى شريف : 1/ 81، كتاب الصلاة باب الأذان كيف هو؟)
