SUNNAH WITH REGARDS TO EID TAKBEER:
The sunnah regarding the takbeer of the ‘Eid is
it should start from home and should continue all the way
musallah and should stop when the Imam stands to start the
is not sunnah to make this takbeer in unison. ‘Allamaah
Sheikh Mohammad Saleh Al-Uthaymeen said: “In some Masjids,
Muath-thin says the takbeer of eid on the loud-speaker,
and people echo
what he says, this is a bid’ah, because it is known from
Prophet’s guidance in regard to dhikr that every person
should mention Allaah by himself. It is not permitted to
the guidance of the Prophet and his companions. [see
ajwibatun fee salat-al-‘eedayn pp31-32]
Similar thing was mentioned by Al-‘Allamaah Sheikh
Naasiruddin Al-Albaanee (‘alayhi Rohmatullaah) in Saheehal
vol 1a, p331 “Saying the takbeer in unison, as many people
do, is not permissible. This applies as well to any other
whether it is supposed to be said aloud or
silently.” [see Asilatun wa ajwibatun fee
salat-al-‘eedayn pp31-32] Another common mistake about the
takbeer of the ‘Eid is that the organizers of the Eid
announce “Takbeer starts at such and such time.”
This is not sunnah, takbeer doesn’t start at the Eid
musallah, it starts from the individual homes. And to
complain of the strange time we live in.
WORDINGS OF TAKBEER: There is
no authentic narration with regards to the takbeer of the
(Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). However there are many
authentic narrations regarding the takbeer of the
mention here the most famous one, and that is the takbeer
Mas’uud (RadiAllaahu ‘anhu) which is : Allaahu
Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Laa Ilaahaa illaallaahu Wallaahu
Akbar – Walillaahil Hamd.
[authentic chain, recorded by Ibn Abee Shaybah and
Daraqutnee, see Irwa
It is not permissible to add to this: “walhamdulillaahi
katheeraa, wa subhanallaahi bukratawwa-aseelaa….”
Although the meaning of all these are good but there is
the salaf with regards to these addition, and we ask
Allaah to keep us
on the path of the salaf…
- Please use restroom and make wudu before coming
although there are restrooms in the prayer center
- Carpooling is highly
- Try your best to choose a ranch and offer your
udhiya to continue the tradition of our great Prophet
Some Sunnah with regards to the day of Eid
- Recommended to take a
shower in the morning before going to Eid salah.
- To eat something
before going to the Eid prayer on the day of Eid
- Wear the best dress,
use perfume (for men only, not for women).
- Start from home with
takbeer saying it loudly.
- When you reach
Musalllah, there is no sunnah prayer before or after
the Eid prayer.
- Keep on saying the
takbeer and don’t repeat in unison, this is a
bid’ah. Takbeer should continue until the Imam comes
starts the prayer. The correct wordings of Takbeer
are: Allaahu Akbar,
Allaahu Akbar, Laa Ilaahaa illaallaahu Wallaahu Akbar,
– Walillaahil Hamd.
- The eid prayer is an
obligation and it is two rakat.
- First rakat has 7
additional takbeer right after the takbeer-atul-Ihram,
the second rakat
has 5 additional takbeer before the recitation.
- During the Eid
takbeer, the sunnah is not to raise hand and not to
say anything in
between the takbeerat.
- If you miss the eid
prayer for any reason, just pray two rakat in the form
the Eid prayer
is prayed and it should suffice inshaAllaah.
- The route that one
takes to go to the Eid musallah should be different
from the route that
one take to return home.
This is in short some of the sunans of the Eid, and
celebration of Eid is an act of worship, so don’t spoil by
listening to music, haram mixing of men and women, movies
