Q: In my area, the nearest masjid is about 10kms. There is also a musalla nearby but azaan from the masjid or the musalla is not heard. However, for several reasons, I have to perform salaat on my own at home and, in the circumstances, is it imperative to give azaan and recite iqaamat before salaat? Does this also apply if one is also performing missed salaats?
A: You should do the azaan and iqaamat.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
