Ansar Al Sunnah Eid 5

The day of Eid-ul-Fitr, in Muslim world, brings rejoicing and happiness. The rejoicing is not, however, at the departure of the holy month of Ramadan; it is the happiness which someone feels after successfully completing an important task. It is celebrated for three consecutive days in a holiday called Eid ul Fitr (the Feast of Fast Breaking). Gifts are exchanged. Friends and family gather to pray in congregation.

Typically, during Eid al-Fitr, Muslims try to follow the Sunnah of Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H). Here is what the Prophet (P.B.U.H) use to do on the day of Eid (Sunnah), May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him:

  1. To rise early in the morning.
  2. Take a full bath.

    Clean the teeth.

    Wear the best cloths that he had.

    To use perfume (Gents Only).
  3. To eat something sweet like dates before leaving home.
  4. Go to the Eid prayer location very early. (The Prophet (P.B.U.H) use to offer Eid prayer in the central location that is not to offer it in a mosque of a locality without any legitimate excuse).
  5. The Prophet (P.B.U.H) used to go to the Eid Prayer location by one route and will return through another route.
  6. He (P.B.U.H) used to go for Eid on foot.
  7. He (P.B.U.H) used to chant slowly on the way to the Eid prayer location the following words: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha illallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Wa lillahil Hamd.” (Translation: Allah is the greatest, He is the greatest. There is no god except Allah. He is the greatest. All praises and thanks are for Him)
  8. The Prophet (P.B.U.H) used to give Sadqa-e-Fitr (zakatul fitr) for before the Eid day. But if you have not done so please give now before the Eid. (Giving just before Eid is ok but against the spirit and the purpose of it.)
