Aqamat
The Aqamat is the signal that the prayer is ready and has just begun, and that everybody present should disengage his mind from the outside world and engage in the remembrance of Almighty. It is necessary in the congregational prayer, and it is pronounced in a soft but audible voice
 Iqamah is similar to azaan with a little difference. After say 
 

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 like in Azaan
