Azaan and Iqaamah (47)

Bismihi Ta’ala

Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling

Azaan and Iqaamah whilst on a journey

47.)  Maalik Ibn Huwayrith (RA) narrates that he and his cousin came to Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam). Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) told them the following (upon their departure): “When you travel, call out the azaan and Iqaamah, and let the elder among you lead the Salaah.” 
[Tirmizi Shareef]

-      When people perform their Salaah with Jamaat on journey, they are not particular about calling out the azaan. This is an omission of the Sunnah and it is detrimental. Imam Bukhari (Rahmatullah ‘alayh) has also stressed the importance of this.
