Takbeeraat of ‘Eid

بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم

◾️Takbeeraat of ‘Eid◾️

Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb – may Allah preserve him – on the 8th, Dhil-Hijjah, 1436H


Are there specific wording in regards to the Takbeeraat of ‘Eid, which are to be restricted to and the Takbeeraat wouldn’t be considered correct without these specific wordings.

Similarly in regards to the greeting for ‘Eid?

And what’s the ruling on doing the Takbeer congregationally on ‘Eid?


No specific wording was authentically reported from the Prophet ﷺ in regards to the Takbeeraat of ‘Eid. So everything which could be labeled as Takbeer suffices but usage of wording which were reported from the Salaf is better.

This is also the case for the greetings on ‘Eid.

As for the Takbeer in congregation; meaning performing the Takbeer in unison, then this has been rebuked by some of the people of knowledge.
