Saying the words: ‘da-iman abadan…’ after the iqamah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I have a question pertaining to a common practice of people after the iqamah is made for salah. They say:

Da’iman abadan la ilaha illaha Muhamadan Rasulullah

Does this practice have any basis in our tradition and if not, is there anything masnun prescribed for after the iqamah is made?


I haven’t seen these words or any other form of reply to be recited after the iqamah is completed in the popular Hadith sources that I have referred to.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
