Eid ul Adha

thefinalmessage|THE FRIDAY NOTE

Eid – Details of Eid;
In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and Compassionate.

All praise is to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

And the blessings and peace of Allah be upon His Chosen Messenger, the Prophet Muhammad, his family, companions, and followers.

Islam has two major holidays, Eid al-Fitr (Post-Fasting Festival) and Eid al-Adha.

The word Eid itself is an Arabic word, whose root connotation is ‘that which comes back, time after time, and rejoicing.’ Its particular usage in Islam, for the two major holidays, is because these two days are meant to be days of rejoicing.

The Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “They are days of eating, drinking, and remembrance of God.” [Reported by Bukhari in his Sahih, an authoritative collection of the sayings of the Prophet.]

Eid – Sunnahs of Eid;

***Notes for Eid ul Adha specifically and days of Hajj***


Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar. Laa ilaaha illallaahu wallaahu Akbar. Allaahu Akbar walillaahil hamd

Translation: "Allah is most great. Allah is most great. There is no Deity besides Allah and Allah is most Great. Allah is most Great and Verily all praises are for Allah."

For the followers of HANAFI FIQH It is waajib to recite this Takbeer audibly once after every Fard Salaat from the morning of the ninth of Dhul Hijjah (Day of Arafah) till the Asr Salaat of the thirteenth of Dhul Hijjah. It is waajib on both male and female. Females should not say the Takbeeraat loudly but softly.

Eid on Friday;
Do you have to pray Salatul Jumu’ah if Eid falls on a Friday?

Hanafi, Shafi’I and Maliki Madhab you DO still have to attend the Jumuah Salaat (general ruling) source

Hanbali Madhab, it is not obligatory to attend the jumuah source:

And Allah knows best
