“The Lajnah Daa’imah was asked the following question,


س‏:‏ هل إقامة الصلاة جهراً أم سراً عندما يصلي منفرداً‏؟‏

When a person is praying alone, should the iqamah be made with a loud voice or a low voice?


جـ‏:‏ المشروع في الإقامة أن تكون جهراً فمن أقام للصلاة فليجهر بها سواء كان منفرداً أم غير منفرد‏.‏

What is legislated for the iqamah is that it be with a loud voice. Therefore, whoever performs the iqamah for the salaat, should raise his voice with it whether he is praying alone or not.” End quote.

Note: He raises voice his but not as he would raise his voice for the adhaan. However, with a lower tone.
