The Adhan and the Iqamah:

 
It is highly recommended to recite the Adhan and the Iqamah especially for men before the evening and night, and morning prayers. Iqamah is even more strongly recommended than the Adhan.
 
How to recite the Adhan:
 
1. Allahu Akbar (God is Great) four times and the rest of the following phrases twice.
2. Ash’hadu Alla Ilaha Illallah (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah).
3. Ash’hadu Anna Mohammadan Rasoolullah (I bear witness that Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah).
4. Hayya Alas-Salah (Hasten to prayer).
5. Hayya Alal-Falah (Hasten to success).
6. Hayya Ala Khairil-Amal (Hasten to the best good deed).
7. Allahu Akbar (God is Great).
8. La Illaha Illallah (There is no god but Allah).
 
How to recite the Iqamah:
All the phrases are to be recited twice, except the last phrase which is recited once.
 
1. Allahu Akbar (God is Great)
2. Ash’hadu Alla Ilaha Illallah (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah).
3. Ash’hadu Anna Mohammadan Rasoolullah (I bear witness that Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah).
4. Hayya Alas-Salah (Hasten to prayer).
5. Hayya Alal-Falah (Hasten to success).

It is recommended to recite Ash’shadu Anna Aliyan Waliyullah (I bear witness that Ali is the friend of Allah), after the testimony of the prophecy of Mohammed (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) in both of the Adhan and Iqamah.
