      Eid Prayer will be at Masjid Ibrahim :: Prayer will start at 8:00 am
      Eid Prayer Place

      Time of the Prayer: Sunday, November 6, 2011. Prayer starts at 8:00 am [sharp].

      CORRECT SUNNAH WITH REGARDS TO EID TAKBEER: The sunnah regarding the takbeer of the ‘Eid is that it should start from home and should continue all the way to the musallah and should stop when the Imam stands to start the prayer. It is not sunnah to make this takbeer in unison. ‘Allamaah Sheikh Mohammad Saleh Al-Uthaymeen said: “In some Masjids, a 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 the Prophet’s guidance in regard to dhikr that every person should mention Allaah by himself. It is not permitted to depart from the guidance of the Prophet and his companions. [see Asilatun wa ajwibatun fee salat-al-‘eedayn pp31-32]

      Similar thing was mentioned by Al-‘Allamaah Sheikh Mohammad 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 dhikr, whether it is supposed to be said aloud or silently.” companions. [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.

      THE WORDINGS OF TAKBEER: There is no authentic narration with regards to the takbeer of the Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). However there are many authentic narrations regarding the takbeer of the companions. We mention here the most famous one, and that is the takbeer of Ibn Mas’uud (RadiAllaahu ‘anhu) which is : Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Laa Ilaahaa illaallaahu Wallaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar – Walillaahil Hamd. [authentic chain, recorded by Ibn Abee Shaybah and Daraqutnee, see Irwa 125/3]

      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 evidence from the salaf with regards to these addition, and we ask Allaah to keep us on the path of the salaf…

      IMPORTANT NOTES:
      • Please use restroom and make wudu before coming although there are restrooms in the prayer center.  
      • Carpooling is highly recommended.
      • Try your best to choose a ranch and offer your udhiya to continue the tradition of our great Prophet Ibrahim (‘alayhis-salaam).  
      Some Sunnah with regards to the day of Eid Al-Adha
      • Highly recommended to take a shower in the morning before going to Eid salah.
      •  
      • 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 and starts the prayer. The correct wordings of Takbeer are: Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Laa Ilaahaa illaallaahu Wallaahu Akbar, Allaahu 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.
      This is in short some of the sunans of the Eid, and remember the celebration of Eid is an act of worship, so don’t spoil by listening to music, haram mixing of men and women, movies etc…
