Sunnah acts during Eid-Al-Fitr

The Sunnah Revival wishes you and your family Eid Mubarak تقبل الله منا ومنكم

(May Allaah accept (good deeds) from us and from you).

Here are some Sunnah acts on Eid- Al-Fitr

1. Reciting takbeer during the night of Eid from sunset on the last day of Ramadaan until the imam comes to lead the prayer. (See Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, 3/122/ ).

You can say:

Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, wa Lillaahi’l-hamd

2. Doing ghusl before going out to the prayer. (Al-Muwatta’ 432. ).

3. Adorning oneself on the occasion of Eid. ( Saheeh Ibn Khuzaymah, 1756,).

4. Eating before going out to pray on Eid al-Fitr. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not set out on the day of Eid until he had eaten an odd number of dates. (Sahih Bukhari 953)

5. Going to the prayer by one route and returning by another.(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 986.)

6. Going out to the Eid prayer walking, and come back walking. (Ibn Maajah (1295) Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah. )

7. Offering congratulations such as such as saying to one another Taqabbala Allaah minna wa minkum (May Allaah accept (good deeds) from us and from you”

( Al-Fath, 2/446. )
