THE SUNNAHS AROUND EID-UL-FITR 1440.

  1. It is virtuous to spend the Eid night(eve of Eid) in `Ibaadah. Else try to spend part of the night in salaah. Reported in Baihaqi that the one who spend the two Eids in ibaadah, then his heart will not die on the day that all hearts will die. (Baihaqi)
  2. At least wake up early to do tahajud salaah.

=>Note that basing on the fatwa of Hazrat Aisha r.a., women will not proceed for Eid salaahs and nor will they pray at home. During the latter era of the beloved SAW, he prohibited that women be in the mixity of men, even in the masjid. So the beloved prophet SAW ordered to uproot the tents of his wives that were intending to sit for i`tikaaf in

Note that hazrat Aisha r.a. said that she learnt from the prophet SAW that when women and men at times of Bani Isra-eel were mixing with fitna in the praying yard, then there was prohibition for women to come to the masjid. As such reported in Muslim shareef that Hazrat Aisha r.a. said that if the beloved prophet SAW would have seen the next generation after sahabas, then he would have definitely prohibited women to go masjid(Muslim Shareef):

عَنْ عَمْرَةَ بِنْتِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ أَنَّهَا سَمِعَتْ عَائِشَةَ زَوْجَ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَقُولُ
لَوْ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ رَأَى مَا أَحْدَثَ النِّسَاءُ لَمَنَعَهُنَّ الْمَسْجِدَ كَمَا مُنِعَتْ نِسَاءُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ قَالَ فَقُلْتُ لِعَمْرَةَ أَنِسَاءُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مُنِعْنَ الْمَسْجِدَ قَالَتْ نَعَمْ
مُسلم

So today, we are living long generations after that pious 2nd generation. And our fitna level is alarming and hence that is why we should not send our women to masjids or Eid salaahs. And know that the beloved prophet SAW said that there is no Jum`ah for women(Ahmad).

وَلَا جُمُعَةَ عَلَيْنَا

  1. Men will do their Fajr salaah in the masjid.
  2. If you have not given your Sadaqatul fitr yet, then give sadaqatul Fitr for you and your dependants. Wajib for someone who have means to give Sadaqatul fitr for him and for each of his family dependant on him.
  3. Do ghusl that morning.
  4. Choose the best cloth, those according to sunnah.
  5. Put oil on the hair, do miswaak and apply `itr(perfume).
  6. Eat some dates, in odd numbers.
  7. Go walking to the place of Eid salaah. Read the takbirs audibly walking. Take a road to return from another road.
    Say the TAKBIRS at audible voices:

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْدُ

Allah hou Akbar Allahou Akbar laa ilaaha illallahou Wallahou Akbar Allahou Akbar wa lillahil Hamd

Abu Yusuf and Muhammad opted for Takbeer on the day of `Eid because it is supported by these ayahs (2:185) and (87:15).

  1. Do not read nafils in the place of Eid salaah.
  2. Perform salaah and listen to khutbah attentively, even if you don`t understand. Salaah and khutbahs both wajib. According to a narration of Sahih Bukhari there used to be a collective du’as on Eid day. Can do briefly after salaah and lenghy in Khutbah.

Note: The imaam will not sit when climbing the mimbar for khutbah. Then recommended for him to say the above Takbeer 9 times in the beginning of first Khutbah and 7 times in the beginning of 2nd Khutbah. And 14 times before descending from Mimbar(Shami).

  1. Give some sadaqahs to the poor.
  2. Return by another way. (Bukhari).
  3. Express joy by exchanging this dua that sahabas used to say one another on the day of `Eid day:

تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ

’’Taqabbalullahou minna wa minka.’’

May Allah accept our ibaadahs and also youribaadah’’

نَعَمْ، تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ

Answer by ‘’Na`am(‘’Yes’’), Tabbalullah minna wa minka.’’(Tabrani, Baihaqi).
Yes, may Allah Ta’ala accept our ibaadahs and your ibaadahs.

MEETING ON THE DAY OF EID IS SUNNAH:
عن واثلة قال لقيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يوم عيد فقلت تقبل الله منا ومنك قال نعم تقبل الله منا ومنك
بيهقي
Hazrat Wasilah r.a. said: ‘’I met the beloved prophet SAW on the day of `Eid. So I said to Him:
تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ

‘’Taqabbalallahou minna wa minka.’’
May Allah accept our deeds and as well as yours.

The beloved prophet SAW replied:
نَعَمْ، تَقَبَّلَ اللَّهُ مِنَّا وَمِنْكَ
‘’Na`am Taqabbalallahou minna wa minka‘’ Yes, may Allah accept our deeds and as well as yours also.(Baihaqi)

Reported in Bukhari that hazrat Abu Bakr r.a. visited the house of the beloved prophet SAW and his daughter Aisha r.a on the day of `Eid. So sunnah to meet on basis of happiness and congratulation.

Also fuqahas found pleasant that we exchange “Eid Mubarak” on Eid day(Shami):

بَلْ الْأَشْبَهُ أَنَّهَا جَائِزَةٌ مُسْتَحَبَّةٌ فِي الْجُمْلَةِ ثُمَّ سَاقَ آثَارًا بِأَسَانِيدَ صَحِيحَةٍ عَنْ الصَّحَابَةِ فِي فِعْلِ ذَلِكَ ثُمَّ قَالَ : وَالْمُتَعَامَلُ فِي الْبِلَادِ الشَّامِيَّةِ وَالْمِصْرِيَّةِ عِيدٌ مُبَارَكٌ عَلَيْك وَنَحْوُهُ وَقَالَ يُمْكِنُ أَنْ يَلْحَقَ بِذَلِكَ فِي الْمَشْرُوعِيَّةِ وَالِاسْتِحْبَابِ لِمَا بَيْنَهُمَا مِنْ التَّلَازُمِ فَإِنَّ مَنْ قُبِلَتْ طَاعَتُهُ فِي زَمَانٍ كَانَ ذَلِكَ الزَّمَانُ عَلَيْهِ مُبَارَكًا عَلَى أَنَّهُ قَدْ وَرَدَ الدُّعَاءُ بِالْبَرَكَةِ فِي أُمُورٍ شَتَّى فَيُؤْخَذُ مِنْهُ اسْتِحْبَابُ الدُّعَاءِ بِهَا هُنَا أَيْضًا .
شامي

  1. And also sunnah to visit relatives and in laws.
  2. Eat well, but do not go beyond limits. Not permissible to fast on Eid day, except for a traveller that was fasting from a fasting country.
    => ALSO REMEMBER THAT IF ONE STARTED RAMADHAAN IN ANOTHER COUNTRY AND THAT NOW HE IS IN A COUNTRY THAT IS STILL FASTING, THEN HE HAS TO FAST EVEN IF IT IS HIS 31ST FAST OR 32th FAST.

Eid Mubarak to all of you who will see the moon!
