What is the Ijaabat (answer) for Adhaan and Iqaamah
Ijaabah for both Adhaan and Iqaamah is mustahab. Ijaabah means that the hearers should repeat the wordings as the Mu’adh-dhin or Mukabbir says. But after hearing the sentences “Hayya ‘alal…”, one should say:
لَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِٱللَّٰهِ
There is no power and no strength, except with Allah. And in Fajr prayers, after hearing “as-salaatu khayrum minan-nawm” say:
صَدَقْتَ وَ بَرَرْتَ
You have spoken the truth and spoken well. After hearing “Qad qaamatis-salaah” during the takbeer (iqaamah) say:
أَقَامَھَا اللہ وَأَدَامَھَا
May Allah establish it and keep it forever.
