Eid ul Fitr Namaz, Niyat, Dua with Eid Takbir

Eid ul Fitr Namaz, Niyat, Dua with Eid Takbir

Eid ul Fitr Namaz, Niyat, Dua with Eid Takbir

The day of Eid is not merely a festive occasion. A Muslim acquires great rewards from and draws close to Allah I if he spends the day of Eid according to the teachings of Shariah and Rasulullah Sallahu Alaihi Wa Salam. 


Sunnah Of The Day Of Eid


1. To rise as early as possible (In fact much of this night should be spent in Ibadah).

2. To make Ghusal and use the Miswaak.
3. To wear one’s best clothes whilst ensuring that it conforms with Shariah (Sunnah dress).
4. To apply itr.
5. To eat anything sweet (such as dates) before departing for Eid salaah.
6. To go to the “Musalla” as early as possible.
7. To give “Sadaqatul-Fitr” before leaving for the Musalla.
8. To choose a different route when returning from the Musalla.
9. To walk to the Musalla. However there is no harm in using any means of conveyance if the Musalla is a distance away.

Takbir to be read during Eid ul Fitr










Eid Takbir in English


ALLAHU AKBAR. ALLAHU AKBAR.

LA ILAHA ILLAL-LAHU WALLAHU AKBAR.
ALLAHU AKBAR WALIL-LAHIL HAMD.

Allah is the Greatest; Allah is the Greatest; 

There is no god but Allah Allah is the Greatest.
Allah is the Greatest and all praise is for Him.

The Masa’il (Rulings) Pertaining To Eid


1. No Nafl Salaah should be performed in the Musalla before or after Eid Salaah.

2. It is undesirable to perform the Eid Salaah in any other place besides the Musalla without any valid excuse.
3. It is vitally important to listen to both Khutbah after the Eid Salaah. If for some reason the Khutbah is not audible, it is still necessary to
remain seated till the Khutbah ends. NOTE: It is sinful not to listen to the Khutbah.
4. If such an error is made in Eid Salaah which necessitates Sajdah- Sahwa, then the Sajdah-Sahwa could be left out to avoid confusion.

Method Of Performing Eid Salaah


Eid Ul Fitr Namaz ki Niyat

In Hindi: Niyat ki maine 2 rakat namaz Wajib Eid Ul Fitr ki, Zahid 6 Takbiro ke, Muh Kaaba shareef ki taraf, Picha is Imam ke, Allah o Akbar 


In English: “I am performing two Rakaats Eid Salaah which is wajib with six extra Takbir which are also wajib”.

1) Make intention for Eid-ul-Fitr for two Rakats Wajib as above and then lift your hands up to your ears and say ‘Allahu Akbar’ and then fold them below the navel as normal.

2) Now pray ‘Sana’ and then say Allahu Akbar and lift your hands up to your ears and release them and again lift your hands and say Allahu Akbar and release them again and then lift your hands again and say Allahu Akbar and then fold them.

3) This means fold your hands after the first and fourth Takbeer and in the second and third Takbeers release your hands. The best way to remember is that if the Imam shall recite after the Takbeer then fold your hands and when he shall not recite (after a Takbeer) release your hands and hang them on the side.

4) After folding your hands after the fourth Takbeer the Imam will silently recite ‘A’udhubillah’ and ‘Bismillah’ and then he will pray Surah al-Fatiha (‘Alhamd Sharif’) and a Surat loudly and then go into Ruku and Sijdah and (thus,) complete one Rak’at (unit).

5) Then in the second Rak’at the Imam will first pray the Alhamdu and a Surat then lift your hands to your ears and say Allahu Akbar and release them; and do not fold them and repeat this twice. Therefore a total of three times the Takbeer shall be said. On the fourth time say Allahu Akbar and without lifting your hands go into Ruku.

A FEW MASA’IL REGARDING EID SALAAH (EID NAMAZ FAQS)

1. If the Imam forgets to recite the extra Takbirs in the first rak’ah and if he remembers after reciting surah Al-Fatihah, he should recite the extra Takbir and repeat surah Al-Fatihah.

2. If a person joins the Eid salaah after the Imam has completed the extra Takbirs then he should recite the Takbir of Tahrimah and immediately, the additional Takbirs, dropping the hands between the first two additional Takbirs and clasping them after the third, making sure that the hands are raised to the ears on each Takbir.

3. Since the condition of Eid salaah is the formation of a jama’ah, a person who missed Eid salaah is unable to perform the salaah on his own. There is no Qadha for Eid salaah.

4. A person who joins the Eid salaah after the Imam has already recited the Eid Takbir should recite the Takbir immediately upon entering the salaah. However, if he enters the salaah when the Imam is about to go into Ruku and he (the late-comer) fears that he will not be able to join the Imam in the Ruku if he stands and recites the Takbir, then he should instead recite the Takbir in the Ruku, and forgo the tasbih of the Ruku but, while reciting the Takbir in Ruku the hands should not be raised as is done when reciting the Takbir when in Qiyam (the standing posture of salaah). If the Imam emerges from the Ruku and the latecomer has not yet completed the recitation of his Takbir which he had missed then he should leave off the balance of the Takbir and join the Imam. In this case the balance of the Takbir which he could not complete are waived.


5. If someone missed a Rak’ah of the Eid Salaah, he should fulfil it as follows: After the Imam completes the salaah, he (the one who missed the Rak’ah) should rise and perform one Raka’h on his own, reciting Qira’ah (Surah Al-Fatiha plus a Surah) first, followed by the Takbirs. The rest of the Rak’ah is then completed as usual.

Dua for Eid Ul Fitr (Translation) 


O Allah, we ask you for an honorable life,

and a balanced death, and a revival
that is dignified and not degrading.
O Allah, do not destroy us by making us disobey
You and do not seize us by making us rebellious,
and do not make us turn away from the truth or orders.
O Allah, grant us chastity, wealth, piety, guidance and good
reciprocation in the Hereafter and in this world.
We seek refuge in You (O Allah) from doubt,
rebelliousness, pride and show in our religion.
O He Who controls hearts, do not make
our hearts slip after guiding them.
Give us mercy from Your treasures.
You alone are the Bestower.

Eid Namaz for Women

It is not permissible for females to perform the Eidain prayers, as there shall be mixing between the men and the women in the Eidgah (place where the Eid prayer is performed). This is why it is not permissible for females to go to the Masajid to perform salaah with congregation; whether they go in day or at night; whether for Jum’ah or for Eidain; whether they are old or young. [This has been stated in Tanwir al-Absar and al-Durr al-Mukhtar Page 114]

Yes, however, before Zawal women can perform the 2 or 4 rak’ats Chasht (Salatud Duha) prayer at home, after the Eidain prayer has finished. [Bahar-e-Shari’at – Vol. 1, Chapter 4, Page 94]

3. If only the women have their own congregation for salaah, then this is also not permissible, as the congregation held by women between themselves (to perform salaah) is not allowed, in fact it is strictly disliked (Makruh-e-Tehrimi). [This has been stated in Fatawa-e-’Alamgiri Vol. 1 Page 80, also in al-Durr al-Mukhtar Page 77]


4. Even if women pray the Eidain prayer on their own, then this is also not permissible as it is a condition to establish the Eidain prayer that it is performed with a congregation. Yes! Women should pray the nafl (supererogatory) salaah on that day; at home, on their own. Insha’Allah they shall receive the blessings and rewards of that day.

Step by Step Method for performing the Eid Prayer (Eid Namaz / Salat)

Step by Step Method for performing the Eid Prayer (Eid Namaz / Salat)




The method is to make intention for Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-ud-Duha for two Rakats Wajib and then lift your hands up to your ears and say ‘Allahu Akbar’ and then fold them below the navel as normal.

Now pray ‘Sana’ and then say Allahu Akbar and lift your hands up to your ears and release them and again lift your hands and say Allahu Akbar and release them again and then lift your hands again and say Allahu Akbar and then fold them.

This means fold your hands after the first and fourth Takbeer and in the second and third Takbeers release your hands. The best way to remember is that if the Imam shall recite after the Takbeer then fold your hands and when he shall not recite (after a Takbeer) release your hands and hang them on the side.

After folding your hands after the fourth Takbeer the Imam will silently recite ‘A’udhubillah’ and ‘Bismillah’ and then he will pray Surah al-Fatiha (‘Alhamd Sharif’) and a Surat loudly and then go into Ruku and Sijdah and (thus,) complete one Rak’at (unit).

Then in the second Rak’at the Imam will first pray the Alhamdu and a Surat then lift your hands to your ears and say Allahu Akbar and release them; and do not fold them and repeat this twice. Therefore a total of three times the Takbeer shall be said. On the fourth time say Allahu Akbar and without lifting your hands go into Ruku.

This therefore means that in the Eid prayer there are six extra Takbeers; three before Qira’at (recitation) and after Takbeer-e-Tahrima in the first Rak’at and three after Qira’at in the second Rakat and before the Takbeer for Ruku.

Also in all the extra Takbeers you must lift your hands and between two Takbeers a gap of three Tasbeehs should be made and it is Mustahab in the Eid prayer to recite after Alhamdu, ‘Surah al-Jumu’ah’ in the first Rak’at and ‘Surah al-Munafiqun’ in the second or in the first pray ‘Sabbih Isma Rabbik al-A’la’ and in the second ‘Hal Ataaka Hadeethul Ghasihiyah’. [al-Durr al-Mukhtar Pgs. 113-114, Bahar-e-Shari’at]



Method of performing the Eid prayer has been taken from the English version of the book “Qanoon-e-Shari’at”, by ‘Allama Shamsul ‘Ulama Shamsuddin Ahmed al-Radawi, the student of Sadr al-Shari’ah, Allama Mufti Amjad ‘Ali al-‘A’azmi.

Eid-ul-Fitr is celebration at the end of Ramadan

Eid-ul-Fitr is celebration at the end of Ramadan


What is Eid-ul-Fitr?

The arabic name Eid al-Fitr means 'festival of the breaking of the fast' in English. It marks the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan, and the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal. Like other festivals observed by the Muslim community, this festival symbolizes faith.

When is Eid-ul-Fitr?

Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which can be on July 18 or 19 2015. Eid al-Fitr is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations (the other occurs after the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca).

How is Eid-ul-Fitr celebrated?

Eid is celebrated on the first date of Shawwal, that is, the tenth month of the Hijra calendar. During the festival, Muslims exchange gifts, greeting their neighbours as a mark of solidarity and brotherhood.

According to the Islamic tradition, there are two festivals observed by Muslims every year - Eid-ul-Fitr just after Ramzan and Eid-ul-Zuha in the month of Haj.

Ramzan, the month of fasting, symbolizes a lot practices and beliefs of the community. It is not merely restraining oneself from having food but also to abstain from all kinds of evil and unlawful practices in Islam.

Muslims, just before the celebrations of Eid-ul-Fitr, keep a month long fast throughout the month of Ramzan. The practice of fasting is also known as 'roza' that starts from the break of dawn till dusk and during this whole day an individual has to refrain hinself from drinking, eating or having sexual intercourse. The term 'roza' us an Arabic word means abstinence. This year Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on August 20 to mark the end of Ramzan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

The month long fasting ends with the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr that symbolizes a reward for their fasting.

Muslims on this day wear their best clothers and offer 'namaz' a congregational prayer at masjids or mosques. After offering their prayers they exchange good wishes of the festival with their neighbours and other people. They also donate alms to the poor on the auspicios occasion.

The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr not only has religious essence but also carries a social connotation.

Like other festivals, Eid-ul-Fitr is also observed with great enthusiasm. Delicious food and drinks are an indispensable part of the festivity. People decoare their houses and prepare luscious traditional sweets and cuisines to celebrate the festival. The most common recipe in this festival is the delicious meethi seviyan (Sweet Vermicelli) prepared from various healthy and mouth-watering ingredients.

The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr is no-doubt perks up the spirit inherent in all the festivity. The significance of this festival is also interpreted as a good time to bring people together in harmony and gratitude.

Method for performing the
Eid-ul-Fitr Prayer

The method is to make intention for Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-ud-Duha for two Rakats Wajib and then lift your hands up to your ears and say ‘Allahu Akbar’ and then fold them below the navel as normal.

Now pray ‘Sana’ and then say Allahu Akbar and lift your hands up to your ears and release them and again lift your hands and say Allahu Akbar and release them again and then lift your hands again and say Allahu Akbar and then fold them.

This means fold your hands after the first and fourth Takbeer and in the second and third Takbeers release your hands. The best way to remember is that if the Imam shall recite after the Takbeer then fold your hands and when he shall not recite (after a Takbeer) release your hands and hang them on the side.

After folding your hands after the fourth Takbeer the Imam will silently recite ‘A’udhubillah’ and ‘Bismillah’ and then he will pray Surah al-Fatiha (‘Alhamd Sharif’) and a Surat loudly and then go into Ruku and Sijdah and (thus,) complete one Rak’at (unit).

Then in the second Rak’at the Imam will first pray the Alhamdu and a Surat then lift your hands to your ears and say Allahu Akbar and release them; and do not fold them and repeat this twice. Therefore a total of three times the Takbeer shall be said. On the fourth time say Allahu Akbar and without lifting your hands go into Ruku.

This therefore means that in the Eid prayer there are six extra Takbeers; three before Qira’at (recitation) and after Takbeer-e-Tahrima in the first Rak’at and three after Qira’at in the second Rakat and before the Takbeer for Ruku.

Also in all the extra Takbeers you must lift your hands and between two Takbeers a gap of three Tasbeehs should be made and it is Mustahab in the Eid prayer to recite after Alhamdu, ‘Surah al-Jumu’ah’ in the first Rak’at and ‘Surah al-Munafiqun’ in the second or in the first pray ‘Sabbih Isma Rabbik al-A’la’ and in the second ‘Hal Ataaka Hadeethul Ghasihiyah’. [al-Durr al-Mukhtar Pgs. 113-114, Bahar-e-Shari’at]

Method of performing the Eid prayer has been taken from the English version of the book “Qanoon-e-Shari’at”, by ‘Allama Shamsul ‘Ulama Shamsuddin Ahmed al-Radawi, the student of Sadr al-Shari’ah, Allama Mufti Amjad ‘Ali al-‘A’azmi.

How is Eid-ul-Fitr celebrated after Ramadan

How is Eid-ul-Fitr celebrated after Ramadan


Praise be to Allah (SWT) for the blessings of faith, and may His peace and blessing be upon the seal of the Prophets, Mu­hammad Bin Abdullah, his family and companions until the end of time. The believer should be cognizant of the fact that the month of Ramadan is nearing are end and its departure is imminent. Ramadan may be a witness for or against you. Who­ever is blessed to fill it with faith and good deeds should thank Allah for the honor, and must be assured of reward in the Hereafter. For Allah (SWT) will never deny a soul his or her just and complete reward. Whoever fills it with unseemly acts should return to Allah in repentance, which He has promised to accept.







Allah (SWT) has mandated acts of worship at the end of Ramadan in order to assist us in our desire to express our love for Allah, to strengthen our faith and increase the weight of our deeds. He mandated fast breaking alms (Zakatul Fitr); legis­lated glorification and exaltation of Allah, (Takbeer) on the eve of 'Eid beginning from sunset until the time of 'Eid.

He (SWT) stated: “He wants you to complete the prescribed pe­riod and to glorify Him in that He has guided you and perchance you shall be grateful” (Al-Qur'an, 2: 187)

The takbeer goes like this:
“Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaaha illallah, wallahu Akbar Allahu Akbar wa lillahil hamd.”

Men will say this Takbeer aloud in Masaajid,
market places, and in homes affirming Allah's glory and publicizing His mercy upon them. Women will express their Takbeer silently as they are commanded to conceal their voices. Allah (SWT) legislated `Eid prayer. It culminates in the remembrance of Al­lah (SWT).

The Messenger of Allah (saas) commanded his fol­lowers, men and women, to fulfil this `Ebadah and His com­mands must be obeyed by all, as Allah (SWT) said:
“O ye who believe, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and make not vain your deeds.”
(Al Qur'an, 47: 33)

He commanded women to leave their homes and attend 'Eid, whereas their praying at home is at other times more preferable and better.

In a Hadith related by Umm `Atiyah, she said, “The Messenger of Allah commanded us to leave our homes for `Eidul Fitr and `Eidul-Adha prayers, includ­ing mature, menstruating women and virgins. As for the menstruating women, they should keep away from the place of worship but should participate in good deeds and du`a. `Umm `Atiyah interrupted: ‘O Messenger of Allah, some of us do not have the outer garment (Jal­bab)!’ He replied: ‘She may borrow it from her friend.’” (Muslim and Bukhari)

It is recommended to eat a few dates in odd numbers before leaving for `Eid in `Eidul Fitr, in accordance with the report from Anas Bin Malik (raa), who said: “The Messenger of Allah (saas) will not leave for `Eidul Fitr until he eats some dates in odd numbers.” (Ahmed / Bukhari)

It is recommended to go to the `Eid site walking instead of rid­ing unless the place is far or the person is unable to walk due to age or illness. Men should wear their best clothes, but should avoid silk and gold. Women should wear modest and decent long dresses, and avoid flashy or immodest outfits and per­fumes in their outing for `Eid. `Eid prayer should be observed in the most humble and devoted manner.

One should praise Allah often and seek His mercy and should remember the ultimate gathering in the Hereafter (Al Maqamul a'Azam). He should be cognizant of the fact that there is ine­quality and disparity among the ranks of the believers on `Eid day as there will be disparity in ranks among the believers in the Hereafter.

Allah (SWT) stated: “See how We have bestowed more on some than on others, but verily the Hereafter is more in rank and gradation and more in excellence.” (Al-Qur'an, 17:21)

One should be jubilant that he or she is blessed to fast during Ramadan and has been able to observe prayers, recitation of Al-Qur`an and giving of Zakaat. These acts are better for us than this world.

Allah (SWT) says: “Say in the bounty of Allah and in His mercy, in that let them rejoice; that is better than the wealth they hoard.” (Al-Qur'an, 10: 58)

Indeed, if the `Ebadah of this Ramadan is finished and the `Eid prayer is completed the `Ebadah of the believer will not finish until death.

Allah (SWT) states: “O ye who believe, fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a sate of Islam” (Al-Qur'an, 3:102)

Also, “And serve thy Lord until there comes unto thee the Hour that is certain.” (Al-Qur'an, 15: 99).

The Messenger of Allah said: “When the servant of Allah dies, his deeds are cut off.”

So the service to Allah is continuous until the end of life. The end of Ramadan does not mean the end of fasting. There is the highly recommended fasting of six days in Shawwal, and three days sunnah fasting in every month, as well as on Mondays and Thursdays, and fasting most of Shaban and Muharram. If Ramadan is over, night prayers are not. Praise be to Allah, this remains a sunnah of the Messenger (saas) every night of the year forever.

In a Hadith by Mughirah bin Shu'bah (raa) he said: “The Messenger of Allah (saas) regularly prayed at night until his feet swelled'. He was asked, ‘Why (this hardship)?’ He responded: ‘Why shouldn't I be a ser­vant who expresses his gratitude this way.’” (Bukhari)

In another Hadith related by Abdullah bin Salaam (raa), the Messenger said:
“O people if you disseminate salutations (salaam) among your ranks, feed those who need to be fed and maintain the family ties and pray at night while people sleep, you will enter paradise with peace.” (Tirmidhi)

The Sunnah prayers (Rawatib) before or after the five daily prayers are 12 raka'aat: four before Zuhr (Noon prayer), and two after; two raka'aat after Maghrib (Evening prayer); two raka'aat after `Ishah (Night prayer), and two raka'aat before Fajr (Morning prayer).

In a Hadith related by Umm Habeebah (raa), she say: “I heard the Messenger of Allah (saas) said: ‘Every ser­vant who observes twelve raka'aat of supererogatory prayers other than the obligatory prayers, Allah (SWT) will build for him a house in paradise.’ ”

In another version: “Whoever prayed twelve raka'aat (of supererogatory prayers), day and night, Allah (SWT) will build with them a house for him in paradise.” (Muslim)

Remember the remembrance of Allah after Salaat. Allah (SWT) sates: “When ye pass (congregational) prayer cele­brate Allah's praises standing, sitting down, or lying down on your side...” (Al-Qur'an, 4: 103)

The Messenger sought forgiveness three times after salutations (salaam) following Salaat. He prayed: “Allahumma antas Salaam wa minkas salaam tabarakta yaa dhaljalaal wal ikraam.”

He (saas) is reported as saying: “Whoever glorifies Allah at the end of every Salaat 33 times (subhanallah), and praises Allah 33 times (Al­hamdulillah), and utters the word of Greatness 33 times, (Allahu Akbar) that is ninety nine, then completes it with one hundred, saying:
‘Laa ilaha illallah wahdahu laa sharika lahuu lahul Mulk wa lahul hamd wa huwa `alaa k ulli shay in qadeer,’ his shortcomings will be forgiven, even if it is as large as the froth of the sea.” (Muslim)

Dear believer, strive in the path of Allah and obey His Messen­ger's commands. Avoid disregarding His commands so that you will deserve a good life in this life and the life after.

Allah stated: Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has faith, verily to him will We give a new life, a life that is good and pure, and We will be­stow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.” (Al-Qur'an, 16: 97)

O Allah, keep us firm in our faith and good deeds and bless us with a good life, and make us join the ranks of the righteous people; and praise be to Allah (SWT), the Lord of the worlds, and may His blessings and peace be upon Muhammad, his family and companions. Amin.

This humble work was completed on Thursday, 18th of Rabi'ul Awwal 1412 AH, (September 26, 1991 AD) by His humble servant, Tajuddin Bin Shu'aib. Praise be to Allah in the begin­ning and in the end.
