Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah

Question:

Is it necessary when reciting the Iqama to stand behind imam or it can be said from anywhere or are there limits?

Answer:

Bismillah

There are no specific places to give the Iqamah from. It should be given from such a place where the sound of the Iqamah can reach the people who have gathered for the Salah. (Kifayatul Mufti p.9 v.3)
