If the one praying alone forgot to call the Iqamah
Question:

If a worshipper praying alone started to pray, and he forgot to call the Iqamah, is it allowed for him to pray, or should he repeat the prayer from the beginning?
Answer:

The Iqamah is not prescribed for the single worshipper, whether man or woman, since the Iqamah is an announcement to the congregation that the prayer is about to start, so the solitary worshipper does not need it; and if a congregation prayed without Athan or Iqamah, it would not affect their prayer, because the Athan and Iqamah are not conditions for the acceptance of prayer, nor are they pillars of prayer.
