Adhan and Iqamah

Q:

Salamun alaykum

Is Adhan or Iqamah recommended before Mustahhab prayers?

A:

Adhan and iqamah  are recommended only for the obligatory daily prayers. For other prayers, whether mustahab or wajib (compulsory), they are not prescribed.

Thus, it is not permitted to say adhan and/or iqamah before any prayers other than the obligatory daily prayers.
