Comment:I agree with the comment from Indonesia about the 7 and 5 Takbirat. My husband (Egyptian and a scholar) has many books on Shariah law and he checked this year as we were joining some Fijian brothers and sisters in Islam. They also thought 6 and 6. Could you please post where your information comes from. I think if there is an alternative then it is the duty of Muslims giving out information to give the views of the four main schools of Islamic thought or at least to say which school the writer is quoting. By the way, takbir is the singular and takbirat plural. Fine to make the plural takbeers (takbirs) but not the singular.
Your articles can be very helpful but many take them as being the only way and even the most usual way, which may or may not be the case. Could you in future quote sources. Many thanks for the initiative and many interesting articles.

Comment:I'm very happy to see that internet can be used as the way of our da'wah and learning about Islam.
Something I'd like to comment is regarding number of takbeer in either Eid al Adha or Eid al Fitri: the first raka'at should have 7 takbeers after takbeeratul ihraam and the second rakaah has 5 takbeers after getting up from second prostration of first raka'ah (called i'tidal)
This is how it's done:
- After opening takbeer (takbeeratul ihram), recite the opening supplication (subhanakallahumma ...)
- Imam will then do additional takbeer by raising the hands and then place the hand again on the chest; then recite "subhaanallah, walhamdulillaah, wa laa ilaaha illallaah, allaahu akbar. This should be done 7 times
- After that, Imam will recite al Faatihah and finsh the rakaah as usual
On second rakaah after takbeer for i'tidal, Imam should do 5 takbeers in each of which is to recite subhaanallaah, wal hamdulillah, ... again.
I hope this info can be clear for you all. You can find how to perform these eid salats on many books of hadith...
Wassalaamu 'alaikum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh.

Comment:1. Extremely useful guidelines and very simple to
understand and follow the steps.
2. In Step 8: our Imams in Tanzania first say the
3 Takbirs before reciting Al Fatiha, then Surah
and normal Takbir for Rukuh. Is that OK?

Comment:Jazzak'Allah Kharyn. This was very informative and simplified the way that Eid Salat is explained. Normally when the Khateeb/ Imam tries to explain it is very difficult to hear or understand.
Eid Mubarak to all!

You are my Rubb. There is no true god except You. You have created me, and I am Your slave, and I hold to Your Covenant as far as I can. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done. I acknowledge the favours that You have bestowed upon me, and I confess my sins. Pardon me, for none but You has the power to pardon.
