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 Read Less
