The Ruling and Sunnah’s of Eid

Description of Eid prayer

When should zakat-al-fitr be paid

 

Some top tips (see above links for references from Qur’an and sunnah):

1- Make sure you’ve paid zakat-ul-fitr, before the Eid salat.

2- Keep pronouncing the takbeer (starts on night of Eid until the imam emerges to lead the Eid prayer.) The Takbeer is:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu Akbar, laa ilaha illAllah, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillaahilHamd.

(Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, There is no true god worthy of worship, except Allah. Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great and all praise be to Allah.)

3-Have ghusl in the morning before going out to pray

4- Ensure you have eaten something before the prayer of Eid-ul-Fitr. Try eating an odd number of dates, as the prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam did.

5- Men should go out wearing their finest clothes, perfume etc.When going out or in the presence of non-mahram men, women should avoid perfume. Women can wear their fine clothes so long as it is concealed by a full and complete, unadorned Hijab. When in female only environments, or among their mahram relatives, women may adorn themselves appropriately. My dear readers, let us remind ourselves that obedience to Allah takes precedence over all else. We have just fasted Ramadan to gain Taqwa, let us keep working on it for Allah alone!

6- Pray the Eid prayer in congregation

7- Congratulate one another! Taqabbal Allahu minnaa wa minkum (May Allah accept (the fast and worship) from us and from you)

8- Go out to pray one route, and return by another.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Verily, We have sent it (this Qur’ân) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree)[] (1) And what will make you know what the night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is? (2) The night of Al-Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allâh in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months) (3) Therein descend the angels and the Rûh [Jibril (Gabriel)] by Allâh’s Permission with all Decrees, (4) (All that night), there is Peace (and Goodness from Allâh to His believing slaves) until the appearance of dawn.[] (5)

[QUR’AN CHAPTER 97, ENGLISH INTERPRETATION]

 

It’s toooooo special to miss!!!!!

Quick tips:

 

  • And if you are a lady on your menses, you can ibadah other than prayer: see this

 

  • Some reminders from our respected lecturers in the last Ramadan Revival, this night

-increase in Qiyam (standing in prayer at night),

-reading Qur’an,

-making dua- lots of it, pour our hearts out to Allah!

-We can also give zakah if one lunar year passed on the wealth which reached the nisaab,

-and do other good deeds, like istighfar (seeking forgiveness from Allah –click to see amazing this dua)

-sadaqah,

-reminding each other of Allah,

-dhikr- remembering Allah,

-salat and salam on rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam!

  • This Ramadan Revival 2016, the sheikh reminded us to ensure and strive to purify our earnings, make them Halal, so that our dua’s may be answered.
  • We must direct our worship to Allah alone, as He is our only Rabb, Protector, Creator, Sustainer, and He alone deserves the right to be worshipped.
  • Let’s make our intention pure for Allah alone:

 

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:  “Whoever stays up and prays on Laylat al-Qadr out of faith and in the hope of reward, his previous sins will be forgiven.” Agreed upon.

Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught ‘Aisha radi Allahu anhaa what to say on laylat-ul-qadr:

laylqadr dua

Transliteration: Allahumma innaka ‘afuwwun, tuHibul’afwa fa’fu ‘annee 

Let’s revive the sunnah and flee to Allah! please remember us in your duas, and like and share this in sha Allah!

May Allah forgive all of us who believe and admit us to  paradise, by His mercy. Allah abundantly bless rasoollullah. ameen
