Can the one giving adhan or iqama lead prayer?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Sometimes my father says(?) the iqamaat and he also leads..I was wondering if this was permissible.

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

Yes, it is permitted without dislike or impropriety for the one who gives the adhan and/or iqama to also lead prayer. (Ibn Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar; Tahtawi/Shurunbulali, Hashiyat Maraqi al-Falah)

And Allah alone gives success.

Faraz Rabbani.
