Q: When should the Takbir (saying: “Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest]”) restricted to after the obligatory daily Salahs (Prayers) [during the days of `Eid-ul-Adha (the Festival of the Sacrifice)] start? What is the evidence of its legality?

A: It is prescribed for pilgrims to say Talbiyah (devotional expressions chanted at certain times during Hajj and `Umrah) from the time they enter Ihram (ritual state for Hajj or `Umrah) until they throw the pebbles at Jamrat-ul-`Aqabah (the closest pebble-throwing area to Makkah). This is based on the Hadith reported on the authority of Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him and his father): We left early in the morning with the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) from Mina to `Arafah; some of us were performing Talbiyah and the others performing Takbir. Pilgrims should start restricted Takbir after offering the Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer on the Day of Nahr (Sacrifice, 10th of Dhul-Hijjah, when pilgrims slaughter their sacrificial animals) until the `Asr (Afternoon) Prayer on the last of the Days of Tashriq (11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah). As for non-pilgrims, they should start Takbir starting from after the Fajr (Dawn) Prayer on the Day of `Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah) until the end of the Days of Tashriq. The evidence of its legality is the Saying of Allah (Exalted be He): And remember Allâh during the appointed Days. And: …and that you must magnify Allâh [i.e. to say Takbîr (Allâhu Akbar; Allâh is the Most Great)] for having guided youThis is also supported by the fact that the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet) used to do so.

Why Fast the Day of ‘Arafah?

The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) was asked about fasting on the day of ’Arafah, so he said, “It expiates the sins of the past year and the coming year.” [4]

It is on this day that the pilgrims gather at the mountain plain of ’Arafah, praying and supplicating to their Lord. It is mustahabb (highly recommended) for those who are not pilgrims to fast on this day.
Likewise, the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) said, ‘There is no day on which Allāh frees people from the Fire more so than on the day of ’Arafah. He comes close to those (people standing on ’Arafah), and then He reveals before His Angels saying, ‘What are these people seeking.” [5]

Imām al-Tirmidhī (d.275H) – raḥimahullāh – said,

“The People of Knowledge consider it recommended to fast on the day of ’Arafah, except for those at ’Arafah.” [6]

Prophet – sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam, said: ((Indeed the sun and the moon are two signs from the signs of Allaah and He does not make them eclipse due to the death or life of anyone. Should you see the eclipse; then supplicate to Allaah, glorify Him, pray and give charity.)) [Reported by al-Bukhaaree no.1044]

………………………………………………………………………  

Actions to be carried out during the eclipse:
Shaikh ‘Uthaimeen (rahimahullaah) said:

There are seven things that the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) commanded to be done at the time of the eclipse, and all of them are authentically established in Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree; and they are:
Prayer.
Supplication.
Seeking forgiveness.
Making the takbeer.
Making dhikr (remembrance of Allaah).
Giving in charity.
Freeing slaves.
(Majmu’ Fatawaa wa Rasaa-il Muhammad bin Saalih Al-‘Uthaimeen 16/290)
