SALAAH.. The Book of Prayer - Azan and Iqamah

AZAN AND IQAMAH IN SMALL JAMA'AT

Q: 17- "While living    in North America, we often perform salah with Jama'ah in our houses, shops, parks etc. Sometimes the number of participants does not exceed 2-3 persons. Is it necessary for us in these prayers to say azan and Iqamah?"

A: Yes, Azan and Iqamah both are sunnah even whenthe number of the participants in salah is very small. The Holy Prophet saw, once advised any two persons going on journey that whenever the time of `salah' comes, they should say Azan and Iqamah and then perform salah with iqamah.
