Ruling on giving the adhaan and iqaamah when one does not have wudoo’

Is it correct to give the adhaan and iqaamah when one does not have wudoo’?

Praise be to Allaah.  

It is correct to give the adhaan and iqaamah when one does not have wudoo’, but it is preferable for the muezzin and the one who gives the iqaamah to have wudoo’. The prayer is valid even if the muezzin and the one who gives the iqaamah do not have wudoo’. But if the muezzin and the one who gives the iqaamah pray without wudoo’, they have to repeat the prayer, just like anyone else. And Allaah is the source of strength.
