Should the Iqamah (call to start

Q: There were three people, including myself, on a journey. The Salah (prayer) time was due so we performed Wudu' (ablution). I announced Adhan (call to prayer) but forgot to announce the Iqamah (call to start the Prayer), then I recited Takbir (saying: "Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]") and they followed me. After that I remembered that I had not announced the Iqamah, but we completed our Salah. Is our Salah valid?

A: The Iqamah should be announced before performing Salah, (Part No. 6; Page No. 77) however, if you perform Salah without announcing the Iqamah, your Salah will be valid.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
