The word iqama or ikamet refers to the second call to Islamic Prayer, given immediately before the prayer begins. Generally speaking, the iqamah is given more quickly and in a more monotonous fashion, compared to the adhan, as it is addressed to those already in the mosque rather than a reminder for those outside it to go to the mosque. Aside from a difference in the number of times each line is said, the iqama differs from the first call to prayer, the adhan in only one place (line 6, below):

According to the Hanafi school of thought, the content of the Iqama is the same as the Adhan i.e. the number of times the lines are recited are the same ( Allahu akbar four times, and the other parts twice each) including 'Prayer has started' also read twice.
