    Near the place I work I go to pray salah and there are few Malaysian brothers and one thing ive noticed is when praying in Jamaah they do a shortened Iqamah, so for example rather than say Ash hadu an la ilaha illal lah or Haya Alas Salah twice they do it once. Now I have never ever come across this, so was wondering is this allowed? if not will my Salah be accepted?

    The shortened Iqama is the majority opinion I believe, I think its only the ahnaf that do the double Iqama.

    Ah I see never knew that, I have never come across anyone who do shortened Iqamah even people I know who are Shafi, Salafi etc

    But if it's legit then AlhamdulIllah

    The iqama of Abu Mahdhura is the longer one which is preferred by the Hanafiyya. The shortened Iqama is of Bilal which is preferred by the Shawafe. It is only a matter of afzaliyyat and not jawaz.
