Can the Imam give the Iqamah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


Mufti shb what should we do if the masturat dont knw the takbeera before namaaz?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In principle, the Imam has the right of giving the Iqamah. Thereafter, the Muadhin has the right of giving the Iqamah. [1]

If one is performing Salaah at home in a congregation, the Imaam may give the Iqamah before Salaah.


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best


Mufti Muhammad I.V Patel
