Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)
1) Allahu Akbar is with dhammi (pesh) Raa.
2) How to say the Azaan.
a) Stand in a high place facing the qibla with your fingers in the hole of the ears and in a loud voice, reciting the following words:
Allāhu Akbar 4*
Ash-hadu allā ilāha illallāh 2*
Ash-hadu anna Muhammadar rasūlullāh 2*
Hayya 'alas-salāh 2*
Hayya 'alal-falāh 2*
Allāhu Akbar 2*
Lā ilāha illallāh 1*
b) In the Azaan of Fajr, after "Hayya ala lfalah" add "As salatu Khairum minan nawm." (twice)
c) During azaan, turn your face to the right on "Hayya ala Salah" and "Hayya ala lfalah" to your left.
d) Azaan should be done slow and pauses between the words of Azaan.
a) Iqamah is similar to azaan with a little difference. After "Hayya ala Salah" and "Hayya ala lfalah" say, "Qad qamatis Salah" (twice).
During Iqama do not put your fingers in your ears and do not not put your hands on your ears, say the iqama with a lower voice compared to the azaan but not so low that the people there can not hear, say the words of Iqamah without pauses.
