IKAMA
The word 'iqamah' or ikamet (Arabic: إقامة‎) refers to the second call to Islamic Prayer, given immediately before the prayer begins. Generally speaking, the iqamah is given more quickly and in a more monotone fashion, as compared to the adhan, as it is addressed to those already in the mosque rather than a reminder for those outside it to go to the mosque. Aside from a difference in the number of times each line is said, the iqama differs from the first call to prayer, the adhan in only one place.
 
Arabic :
الله اكبر الله اكبر
اشهد ان لا اله الا الله
اشهد ان محمد رسول الله
حي على الصلاة
حي على الفلاح
قد قامت الصلاة
الله اكبر الله اكبر
لا اله الا الله

 
Translation :
God is Greatest, God is Greatest,
I assert that there is no god but God,
I assert that Muhammad is the Messenger of God,
Come to prayer,
Come to success,
Stand for prayer,
God is Greatest, God is Greatest,
There is no god but God

 
Transliteration:
āllahu ākbar, āllahu ākbar
āsh'hadu ān lā ilaha illā-llah
āsh'hadu ānna mūhammadār rasūlu-llah
hayyā `alā-s-salah
hayyā `alā-l-falāh
qad qāma tis-salaah
lā ilaha illā-llah
āllahu ākbar, āllahu ākbar
