The call to the eclipse prayer should be made by saying “Al-Salaatu jaami’ah”

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
It is narrated that the call to the eclipse prayer should be made by saying “Al-Salaatu jaami’ah”. Should this be said once, or is it prescribed that it should be repeated? How often should it be repeated? Please advise us, may Allaah reward you.

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

It was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave orders that the call to the eclipse prayer should be made by saying “Al-Salaatu jaami’ah”. This was narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim.  The Sunnah is for the caller to repeat that until he thinks that the people have heard; there is no set limit for that as far as we know. And Allaah is the Source of strength.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
