Praying ‘Eid prayer at home as a repayment of a missed prayer when not able to attend the ‘Eid prayer in its usual place

Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb – may Allah preserve him –


Regarding the ‘eid prayer in our countries; Malaysia, Indonesia, the government’s are striving to prevent congregations, thus prohibiting the ‘eid prayers in the masājid for example. So what is upon the Muslims to do?Do they pray in their houses, with or without the khutbah? May Allah reward you with good, and bless you.


They pray it as Qaḍā (repayment of a missed prayer) in their houses without any khutba.
