Some people perform Salah without

Q: Is it permissible for the person offering Salah (Prayer) alone to pray without Adhan (call to Prayer)?

A: Yes, it is permissible for a person offering Salah alone to pray without the Adhan, but if he is in the desert or on a remote farm and the like, it is prescribed for him to recite the Adhan even if he is going to pray alone, and the Iqamah (call to start the Prayer) is prescribed at all times, because of the general meaning of the evidence, and because of the saying of Abu Sa`id Al-Khudry (the venerable Sahaby) (may Allah be pleased with him) to `Abdullah Al-Ansary, "I see that you like sheep and the wilderness. When you are with your sheep in your wilderness, and you recite the Adhan for your prayers, raise your voice, for no jinn or man or anything within the voice range of the (Part No. 6; Page No. 57) Mu'adhin (caller to Prayer) hears the call, but will bear witness for him on the Day of Resurrection." Abu Sa`id said, I heard this from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). This Hadith is related by Imam Ahmad and Al-Bukhari. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
