Turning the Head to the Right and Left when Calling out the Iqaamah

Q: Should the person calling out the iqaamah turn his head to the right and left when saying حَيَّ عَلٰى الصَّلَاةْ and حَيَّ عَلٰى الْفَلَاحْ?
A: There are three opinions in this mas’alah:
The first opinion is that the muazzin will not turn his head to the right and left when saying حَيَّ عَلٰى الصَّلَاةْ and حَيَّ عَلٰى الْفَلَاحْ in the iqaamah.
The second opinion is that if the area where the salaah is being performed is a big area, then the muazzin should turn his head to the right and left when saying حَيَّ عَلٰى الصَّلَاةْ and  حَيَّ عَلٰى الْفَلَاحْ.
The third opinion is that the muazzin should turn his head to the right and left, regardless of whether the area is big or small.
It is permissible for one to act upon any of the above three opinions in the Hanafi Mazhab.
