Takbeeraat As-Salaah: Its numbers and rulings


▪️ Its Numbers:

  • (94) Ninety Four Takbeerah in five prayers, in them are (17) Seventeen Rak’ahs.
  • From it:

(5) Five Takbeeraatl-Ihraam (Opening Takbeers).
(4) Four Takbeeratl-Intiqaal (Transitional Takbeers) from the Middle Tashahhud.

In every Rak’ah Five Takbeeraat

▪️ Its Ruling:

  • Takbeeraatl-Ihraam: Consensus upon it being a pillar.
  • Takbeeraatl-Intiqaal: The majority are upon its permissibility, and they sought evidence with the Hadith of the one who prayed badly that he didn’t mention it.
  • And what’s correct is its obligation due to other evidences, and that the Prophet ﷺ maintained them and it’s the basis, the basis of a command is that it’s obligatory, (صلوا كما رأيتموني أصلي) – “Pray as you see me pray.”

And this is the position Imaam Ahmed and the Dhaahiriyyah and Ibn Baaz deemed to be the most correct.

▪️ A prayer doesn’t have spirit, doesn’t have a good appearance if it doesn’t have Takbeer in it.
