The Sunnah and How to Prepare for Eid prayer

The Sunnah & How To Prepare for Eid Prayer

The first of Shawwaal is known as Eid ul-Fitr, and the tenth of Zil Hijah is known as Eid ul-Ad'haa. Both these days are days of festivity and celebration in Islam.

Narrated Uqbah ibn Amir:
The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
The day of Arafah, the day of sacrifice, the days of tashriq are (the days of) our festival, O people of Islam. These are the days of eating and drinking.
(Abu Dawood Book #13, Hadith #2413)

Thirteen things are sunnah on the day of Eid:

1. To adorn oneself according to the Shariah.

2. To have a bath.

3. To use miswaak.

4. To wear the best of clothing which one possesses.

5. To apply perfume.

6. To wake up very early in the morning.

7. To go early to the Eid prayer place.

8. To eat something sweet, such as dates, before going to the Eid prayer place for Eidul Fitr and for Eid ul-Ad’haa vice versa.

9. To give the sadaqatul fitr before going to the Eid prayer place.

10. To offer the Eid prayer in the Eid prayer place. That is, one should not offer Eid prayer in the masjid without any valid reason.

11. To return from the Eid prayer place taking a route that is different from the one that he had taken when going towards the Eid prayer place.

12. To go to the Eid prayer place on foot

13. Recite the following Takbir on the way to Salaat and until the beginning of Salaat-al-Eid:

الله اكبر الله اكبر

لا اله الا الله

الله اكبر الله اكبر

ولله الحمد

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha illallaah. Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Wa lillaahil Hamd.

Allaah is great, Allaah is great. There is no god but Allaah. Allaah is great, Allaah is great. And all praises are for Allaah.

Eid Mubarak Brothers and Sisters
