Turning The Head In Iqaamah


Should a person turn he’s head in the iqaamah while saying حي على الصلاة and حي على الفلاح?


Yes, a person should turn his head in the Iqaamah while saying الصالةَعلىَحي and الفالحَعلىَحي due to Azhaan being similar to Iqaamah. As one does this in Azhaan, so one should also do so in Iqaamah.
