Must Call Adhaan & Iqaamat ?

In certain situations, males may find that they miss or cannot attend the congregational fardhu prayers at the Masjid. (Note: Praying at a place where Adhaan is called is compulsary for all mature male Muslims).

In such situations e.g. when a person is praying at home/office, if there is a Masjid in the locality, then only Iqaamat will suffice i.e. there is no need to call the Adhaan.

If there is no Masjid in the locality i.e. where Adhaan is not called e.g. in a rural place in USA, then the Adhaan should be called from the place of prayer i.e. the home/office in this case.
