✒ Benefit | A Few Sunan Regarding 'Eīd-ul-Fiṭr | Please Act Upon Them

A few Sunan regarding ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr are as follows:

• Reciting Takbeer:

It is Mustaḥabb (recommended) to recite Takbeer from the night of ‘Eid (i.e after sunset on the last day of Ramaḍān) onwards until the Imām comes out to lead the prayer. The format of the Takbeer is as follows:

الله أكبر الله أكبر ، لا اله الا الله ، الله أكبر ، الله أكبر ولله الحمد

‘Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Laa Ilaaha Illallaahu, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Wa Lillaahil-Ḥamd’

(Allāh is Most Great, Allāh is Most Great, there is no god except Allāh, Allāh is Most Great, Allāh is Most Great, and all praise be to Allāh).

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh mentioned: “.. As for congregational Takbeer in unison, THIS IS NOT FROM THE SUNNAH. Rather, everyone is to make the Takbeer individually. With this Takbeer, it is legislated for men to raise their voices with it. As for the women, they are NOT TO RAISE THEIR VOICES.” (Translated and originally posted by Br. Raha b. Donald Batts)

● [نور على الدرب ٣٥٥]

Imām Ibn Abī Shaybah Raḥimahullāh narrated with a Ṣaḥeeḥ Isnād that az-Zuhrī said: “The people used to recite Takbeer on ‘Eid day when they came out of their houses until they came to the prayer place, and until the Imām came out. When the Imām came out they fell silent, and when he said Takbeer they said Takbeer.”

● [إرواء الغليل ١\١٢١]

• Taking Ghusl:

It is established from the Companion Ibn ‘Umar Raḍi-Allāhu ‘Anhumā that he used to bathe ON THE MORNING of ‘Eīd day. The Tābi'ee Sa'eed b. al-Musayyib Raḥimahullāh said: “The Sunan of ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr are three: Walking to the prayer-ground, eating before going out and taking a bath.”

● [إرواء الغليل ٣\١٠٤]

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen Raḥimahullāh said: “Some of the scholars regarded it as Mustaḥabb (recommended) to take Ghusl for the ‘Eid prayer, because it is narrated that some of the Salaf did this, this is also the opinion of ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu.”

● [إرواء الغليل ١٤٦ ، صححه الألباني]

• Eating Odd Number Of Dates Before Leaving For Prayer:

Reported by Imām al-Bukhārī from Anas b. Mālik Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu who said: “The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ never used to go out on the morning of ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr until he had eaten some dates… of which he would eat AN ODD NUMBER (i.e eating 3, 5, 7, or 9 dates before leaving for 'Eīd prayer).”

● [رواه البخاري ٩٥٣]

• Going For Ṣalāh (Prayer) From One Route And Coming Back From Another:

“When Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ would go out on the day of ‘Eid by one route, he would return by another.”

● [جامع الترمذي ٥٤١]

• 'Eīd Prayer Is Obligatory Upon Believing Men And Women As Per The Strong Opinion:

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn Raḥimahullāh commented: “The Muslims are unanimously agreed that the ‘Eid prayer is prescribed in Islām, some say that it is Farḍ-e-Kifāyah (a communal obligation) and some say that it is Farḍ-e-‘Ayn (an individual obligation), and that not praying it, is a sin.”

● [مجموع الفتاوى ١٦\٢١٦-٢٢٣]

• Wearing Your Best Clothes:

Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn Raḥimahullāh said: “You should wear your best clothes – this is for men. With regards to women, they SHOULD NOT WEAR BEAUTIFUL CLOTHES when they go out to the ‘Eid prayer place, because the Prophet ﷺ said: 'Let them go out looking decent’ i.e. in their REGULAR CLOTHES that are NOT fancy. IT IS ḤARĀM for them (i.e women) to go out wearing perfume and makeup.”

● [مجموع الفتاوى ١٦\٢١٦-٢٢٣]

Note: Also It is known that the companion Ibn ‘Umar would dress in his best clothes for the two ‘Eids as reported by Ibn Ḥajar Raḥimahullāh in his Fatḥ-ul-Bārī (2/439).

• Greeting After The Prayer Of ‘Eīd-ul-Fiṭr:

It was narrated that Jubayr b. Nufayr Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu said: “When the Companions of the Prophet ﷺ met one another on the day of ‘Eid, they would say to one another, 'Taqabbal-Allaahu Minnaa Wa Minkum’ (May Allāh accept (good deeds) from us and from you).”

● [وقال ابن حجر رحمه الله : إسناده حسن ، أنظر : الفتح ٢/٤٤٦]

• Praying Two Rak’āt (units) After Returning Home From 'Eīd Prayer:

From Abū Sa'eed al-Khudree Raḍi-Allāhu 'Anhu who said: “The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ would NOT PRAY ANYTHING BEFORE the 'Eīd prayer then when he returned to his house (after prayer), he would pray 2 units (Rak’āt).”

● [رواه ابن ماجه ١٢٩٣ ، صححه الحاكم وحسنه ابن حجر والألباني رحمهم الله]

⚠ IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an abandoned Sunnah (سنة مهجورة), so revive it please, Imām al-Ḥākim used to say regarding it هذه سنة عزيزة (This is a noble Sunnah). ⚠

تقبل الله منا ومنكم

Taqabbal-Allaahu Minnaa Wa Minkum.

(May Allāh Accept It From Us And From You)
