The first day of the Islamic lunar month Shawwaal is Eid ul-Fitr, marking a day of celebration and thanks to Allah, our Creator. Ramadan ends here. Most Muslim celebrates Eid for at least 3 days. Here is what the Prophet use to do on the day of Eid (his Sunnahs), may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him.

Method of Eid prayers

  • Eid Salat (prayer) consists of two raka'ats with six takbeers in congregation of Muslims followed by the Khutba of Eid.
  • Follow the Imam by raising both hands up to the ears, say, Allahu Akbar, this is the first Takbeer to enter in the Salat.
  • Then fold your hands in the front and recite the ‘Sanaa', subhaanakallahumma... till the end and
  • Then say Allahu Akbar thrice, following you imam, each time raising both hands up to the ears and droping them. After each takbeer there is going to be a slight pause in which Subhanallah may be recited thrice.
  • After the third takbeer the hands should be folded in front and listen to the imam reciting Aoozubillah, Bismillah, Surah Fateha and some other Surah and
  • Then perform Ruku as Imam says Allahu Akbar and
  • Then go to Shejdah, as usual, following your imams takbeer.
  • In the second rakaat imam will first recite Surah Fateha and some other Surah, then will say three takbeers after it. In all these three takbeers hands will not be folded but dropped after each takbeer. And
  • Then go into the Ruku just after the fourth takbeer.
  • Listening to Khutbah after the Eid Salaat is Wajib.
