BackSalat-e-Eid

The Eid prayer consists of two Rakat's. It should be prayed in congregation (Jamaat) but can be said individually if one has missed the Jamaat. This prayer is to be performed between sunrise and zawal.

Its mustahab to say this takbeer on the day of Eid

اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ لآَ اِلٰهَ اِلاَّ اللهُ وَ اللهُ اَكْبَرُ وَ لِلَّهِ الْحَمْدُ اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ عَلٰي مَا هَدَانَا.

Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, there is no god except Allah, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, and praise is for Allah, Allah is the Greatest, for that upon which He guided us.

  1. Make Niyat of Salat-e-Eid
  2. In first Rakat recite Sura Fatiha

    بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
    ٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ
    All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
    ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
    The Beneficent, the Merciful.
    مَٰلِكِ يَوْمِ ٱلدِّينِ
    Master of the Day of Judgment.
    إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ
    Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.
    ٱهْدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٰطَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ
    Keep us on the right path.
    صِرَٰطَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ ٱلْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا ٱلضَّآلِّينَ
    The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favors. Not (the path) of those upon whom Thy wrath is brought down, nor of those who go astray.

  3. Recite Al Aala

    بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
    سَبِّحِ ٱسْمَ رَبِّكَ ٱلْأَعْلَى
    Glorify the name of your Lord, the Most High,
    ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ فَسَوَّىٰ
    Who creates, then makes complete,
    وَٱلَّذِى قَدَّرَ فَهَدَىٰ
    And Who makes (things) according to a measure, then guides (them to their goal),
    وَٱلَّذِىٓ أَخْرَجَ ٱلْمَرْعَىٰ
    And Who brings forth herbage,
    فَجَعَلَهُۥ غُثَآءً أَحْوَىٰ
    Then makes it dried up, dust-colored.
    سَنُقْرِئُكَ فَلَا تَنسَىٰٓ
    We will make you recite so you shall not forget,
    إِلَّا مَا شَآءَ ٱللَّهُ ۚ إِنَّهُۥ يَعْلَمُ ٱلْجَهْرَ وَمَا يَخْفَىٰ
    Except what Allah pleases, surely He knows the manifest, and what is hidden.
    وَنُيَسِّرُكَ لِلْيُسْرَىٰ
    And We will make your way smooth to a state of ease.
    فَذَكِّرْ إِن نَّفَعَتِ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰ
    Therefore do remind, surely reminding does profit.
    سَيَذَّكَّرُ مَن يَخْشَىٰ
    He who fears will mind,
    وَيَتَجَنَّبُهَا ٱلْأَشْقَى
    And the most unfortunate one will avoid it,
    ٱلَّذِى يَصْلَى ٱلنَّارَ ٱلْكُبْرَىٰ
    Who shall enter the great fire;
    ثُمَّ لَا يَمُوتُ فِيهَا وَلَا يَحْيَىٰ
    Then therein he shall neither live nor die.
    قَدْ أَفْلَحَ مَن تَزَكَّىٰ
    He indeed shall be successful who purifies himself,
    وَذَكَرَ ٱسْمَ رَبِّهِۦ فَصَلَّىٰ
    And magnifies the name of his Lord and prays.
    بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ ٱلْحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا
    Nay! you prefer the life of this world,
    وَٱلْءَاخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰٓ
    While the hereafter is better and more lasting.
    إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَفِى ٱلصُّحُفِ ٱلْأُولَىٰ
    Most surely this is in the earlier scriptures,
    صُحُفِ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ وَمُوسَىٰ
    The scriptures of Ibrahim and Musa.
