The Takbeer:

The Takbeer is legislated from the dawn of the day of Arafah and during the Ayyaam At-Tashreeq (i.e. 11th to 13th Dhul Hijjah) to Asr time on the 13th of Dhul Hijjah.  Allaah (The Most High) said: [وَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَّعْدُودَاتٍ ]— ”And remember Allah during the appointed Days.” [Soorah Baqarah: Ayah: 203]  The manner in which the Takbeer is performed is: [الله أكبر الله أكبر، لا إله إلا الله، والله أكبر الله أكبر ولله الحمد].  It is prescribed for the men to raise their voices with the Takbeer in the Masaajid, the houses and after the five daily obligatory prayers.  This is done to exalt Allaah and to manifest singling Him out in worship and thanking Him.

 

Bath on the day of Eed

One takes a bath and only men are to wear perfume.  The men should also wear their best clothes but neither going into extravagance nor dragging their garments below their ankles and shaving their beards.

 

Eating From the Eed Sacrifice:

One eats from the Eed sacrifice, because the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) did not use to eat until he returned from the Musalla and ate from the Eed sacrifice. [Zaadul Ma-aad: 1/441]

 

Walking to the Musalla (i.e. place of prayer)
One walks to Musalla if that is easy.  The Sunnah is to pray Eed in the Musalla except if there is an excuse not to do so, such as rain etc.  It is also recommended to stay for the Eed khutbah and to supplicate for the Muslims.  Likewise, one takes a different road whilst returning from the Eed prayer, because this was an action of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).

 

Eed Greeting:

It is permissible to greet one another after Eed, because this has been established from some of the Sahaabah.  Shaikh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said that there is no particular defined Eed greeting; rather this is left to the people as long as such greeting does not involve sin.  Likewise, he (rahimahullaah) said that there is no harm in shaking hands and embracing one another because these are affairs the people have taken as a custom these days and they are not done as acts of worship or as a means of getting close to Allaah.

And Allaah knows best

Chapter Nine : On the Day of ‘Arafah

There is no doubt that the day of ‘Arafah is a great day from the blessed days of Allaah and is a large gathering from the gatherings of goodness, Eemaan and Taqwaa. It is a season which is welcomed with great importance. A season from the seasons of obedience and worship, a day where the shedding of tears increases, where there are continuous supplications, where mercy descends and shortcomings are rectified, a day where mistakes are forgiven, a day of hope and humility, submissiveness and humbleness.

Indeed it is a noble blessed day. The sun never rose on a day better than the day of ‘Arafah. Indeed it has been specified with noble merits, great privileges and important characteristics. It is no easy…

Pearls of a Muslim

The Noble Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

This day (the Day of Arafah) has within it a tremendous virtue. When he (the Prophet) was asked about fasting on it he said: “It expiates the previous year and the remaining year,” meaning the following year. Fasting (on that day) expiates two years. This indicates the virtue of fasting the Day of Arafah. The expiation for the previous year is clear because it expiates the evil that is present and that which has taken place. However, expiation for the following year and nothing from it has taken place, this has within it a problem (for many regarding its understanding). How can it expiate that which hasn’t taken place? They (the scholars) have said, the meaning of it expiating the remaining year (meaning the following year) is that the person is given the success to keep away from…
