The Sunnahs /Etiquettes of Eid-ul-Adha

It was customary of the Prophet ﷺ to do the following on ‘Eid:

Make du’a on the night of Eid 

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, ‘There are five nights on which du’a is not rejected: the first night of Rajab, the fifteenth night of Sha`ban, Thursday night, the night before Eid al-Fitr and the night before Eid al-Nahr (al-Adha)’. (As-Suyuti) 

Eid Pray In Open Field 

It is recommended that Eid prayer should be observed in an open field thats sunnah 

Ghusal ( Bath )

 It is Suggested as a Sunnah to Do ghusl & use the best perfumes that we have.

before going out for the eid  prayer. 

Eating After Eid-ul-Adha prayer 

For Eid ul-Fitr, it is Sunnah to eat after Edul Adha prayer and we should follow his example.

Walking to prayer place 

It was reported that Sa`id ibn Jubayr said: “Three things are Sunnah on `Eid: to walk (to the prayer-place), to take a bath, and to eat before coming out (if it’s Eid Al-Fitr).”


- On the way to the masjid, Takbeer ul-Eid should be recited softly. The Eid Takbeer is:

‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. La Ilaaha Illallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa Lillahil Hamd’

(Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is most Great, there is no worth of worship , fear , care , love & doer of evrything but  Allaah, Allaah is Most great, Allaah is most great, and to Allaah be praise). 

Congratulating each other

- On Eid day, we often congratulate each other with greetings such as ‘Eid Mubarak’. However, a better way to greet each other is to take the example of the Sahabah (ra). It was narrated by Jubayr ibn Nufayr (ra), that the Sahabah (ra) used to greet each other on the day of Eid with: ‘Taqabbal Allaahu Minnaa Wa Minka’ ,which means ‘May Allah accept (the fast and worship) from us and from you’. (Fathul-Bari)

Routes to Eid Prayer Venue 

- As narrated by Jabir bin Abdullah, ‘On the Day of Eid, the Prophet (saw) used to return after offering the Eid prayer through a way different from that by which he went’. (Bukhari) The reasoning behind this is so that on The Day of Judgement the two paths will testify that you attended this salah. 

 All of Us , we would like to wish you a wonderful Eid al-Fitr. May Allah (swt) accept all of our fasts and prayers and bring us all endless joy on this blessed day. ( London Muslims Team )

How To Pray Eid-ul-Adha Salah (Prayer)

The Eid prayer can be slightly confusing, since we only do it once a year and it’s necessary to refresh our memory! So we’ve prepared an easy guide to help you pray the Eid prayer. Follow the below steps on both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. (They are based on the Hanafi school of thought).

Please Note :

  1.  it is Sunnah to make ghusl and put on your best clothes & perfume . Eid is a celebration, after all! 
  2. It is also Sunnah to recite takbeer after leaving your house as you travel to the Eid prayer. This is: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. La ilaaha illa-llaah, wa-llaahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa li-llaahil hamd. 
  3. There are no nafl (voluntary) prayers offered before or after the Eid prayer. 
  4. Just like with other prayers, remember to make your niyyah (intention) before you start. This intention must be present in the heart. However, if you wish to verbalise it too, you can do so as follows, ‘I intend to pray two raka’ah of the Eid al-Fitr/Eid al-Adha prayer for Allah facing the Ka’bah’.

    The first rak’ah of Edi-ul-Adha Salah

      1. Now start your prayer by raising your hands up to your earlobes for men, and shoulders for women, while saying the takbeer: Allahu Akbar. Then, place your right hand over your left, just below the naval. Women should place their hands over their chest.
      2. Recite your opening supplication: SubhanaK-Allahumma wa bihamdiKa, wa tabaarak-asmuKa, wa ta-’aala jadduKa, wa la ilaaha illa ghayruK. This means: O Allah, glory and praise are for You, and blessed is Your Name, and exalted is Your Majesty and there is no god but You.
      3. Now comes the main thing that differentiates the Eid prayer from other prayers! The Imam will now recite multiple takbeers to start the prayer. For each takbeer, raise your hands up to your ears/shoulders and then let them fall to your sides.
      4. The number of takbeers will vary depending on the Imam. A Hanafi Imam will say takbeer three times. But typically, your Imam will run through the amount of takbeers prior to the start of the prayer, so pay attention!
      5. Now that the takbeers are over, place your right hand over your left on your chest/below your navel, as you would normally do while praying. Now the Imam will recite Surah al-Fatihah followed by another surah.
      6. The rest of the rak’ah will be prayed the same as your normal compulsory prayers. If you’re a beginner, want to learn more then please join us inshAllah  how to perform Salah. also  continue reading!

        The second rak’ah of Eid-ul-Adha Salah

        1. In the second rak’ah, the Imam will recite Surah al-Fatihah followed by another surah.
        2. After this Qur’an recitation, the Imam will recite multiple takbeers again! Remember, for each takbeer, raise your hands to your ears/shoulders and let them fall to your side. A Hanafi Imam will recite three takbeers, but other Imams will be different, so pay attention.
        3. When the takbeers are over, go down into a bowing position (ruku). 
        4. The rest of the rak’ah will be the same as your normal compulsory prayers. 
        5. After the prayer, the Imam will address the people in a khutbah (sermon). This can last anywhere from around 10-30 minutes, during which the Imam will address important Islamic issues. It is essential that you listen to the sermon & observe silence .
        6. remember to sacrifice or donate volanteerly here  pay saqatul fiter 

          All of Us , we would like to wish you a wonderful Eid al-Adha. May Allah (swt) accept all of our fasts and prayers and bring us all endless joy on this blessed day. ( London Muslims Team )

                    * “Neither the flesh (of the sacrificed animals) nor their blood reach Allah. But, it is your taqwa (piety and sincerity of heart) which reaches Him. Convey glad tidings to the sincere ones.” (Surah Hajj)

                    * “Perform Salaat for your Rabb and sacrifice (animals).” (Surah Kauthar)

On the Day of Qiyaamah the sacrificed animal will arise with its horns, hair and hoofs. Allah Ta’ala accepts the sacrificed animal before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore, render the Qurbaani wholeheartedly and happily.” (Ibn Majah, Tirmizi, Hakim)


                    Hadhrat Zaid bin Arqam (radiallahu anhu) narrates that the Sahaabah enquired from Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) about the Qurbaani practice. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “It is the way of your father, Ibraheem (alayhis salaam).” The Sahabah asked: “What will we acquire by it?” Rasullullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) replied: “A good deed (is recorded for you) in return for every hair (on its body).” The Sahaabah asked: “0 Rasulullah! If there is wool on the body?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “A good deed in return for every strand (of wool on its body).” (Hakim, Ibn Majah)

Remember that on the Day of Qurbaani its flesh and blood will be brought and after increasing it by seventy times, it will be placed in your Scale of good deeds.” Its flesh and blood will be brought and after increasing it by seventy times, it will be placed in your Scale of good deeds.” Hadhrat Abu Saeed (radiallahu anhu) asked: “0 Rasulullah! Is this reward exclusive for the Family of Muhammad? Truly, they deserve such great thawaab-or is this thawaab for all Muslims as well?” Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “For the Family of Muhammad as well as for all Muslims in general.” (Isbahaani)


                    Hadhrat Husain Ibn Ali (radiallahu anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The Qurbaani rendered wholeheartedly, happily and with sincerity of intention will on the Day of Qiyaamah be a shield against Jahannum for the sacrificer.” (Tibrani)


                    Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (radiallahu anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “He who is by the means but does not render the Qurbaani, should not come to our place of Eid Salaah.” (Targheeb)


                    Hadhrat Abu Talha (radiallahu anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) sacrificed one sheep for himself and one sheep on behalf of his Ummah. In this regard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “This Qurbaani is for the one in my Ummah who believes in me and who acknowledges me.” (Musali, Kabiri, Ausat)

                    Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (radiallahu anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Fatten your animals (of sacrifice-feed them well), for they will be your mounts on the Siraat (the Bridge over Jahannum).” (Kanzul Ummaal)


                    There is nothing dearer to Allah during the days of Qurbani than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the Day of Judgement with its horns, hair, and hooves (to be weighed). Allah accepts the sacrifice before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart. (Tirmizi, Ibne Majah)

                    Hadhrat Husain bin Ali(radhiyallahu anhu) reported that Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said that: ” Whosoever sacrifices with sincerity and for virtue, will enjoy this sacrifice as the cause of safety from Jahannam.” (Tabraani)


                    Hadhrat Abdullah bin Abbas(radhiyallahu anhu) reported that Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said that: ” The best expenditure on the Day of Eid-ul-Adha is to spend one’s money in sacrifice.” (Tabraani, Isbahaani)


                    Hadhrat Ayesha(radhiyallahu anha) reported that Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said that: ” For every hair of sacrifice, one virtue is recorded.” (Tirmizi)

                    Q.1. What is the difference between the term Udhiyyah and Qurbani?

                    A) ‘Udhiyya’ is an Arabic term, which means ‘sacrificing an animal’, and ‘Qurbani’ is an Urdu and Persian word derived from the Arabic word ‘Qurban’, which literally means an act performed to seek Allah’s pleasure. It is generally used for sacrificing an animal for the sake of Allah.

                    Q.2. On whom is Qurbani Wajib (obligatory)?

                    A) Qurbani is Wajib (obligatory) on every Muslim who is:

                    a) Of sound mind – mature (has reached the age of puberty), b) Non-Traveller (i.e. Muqeem - not a Shari’ traveller) c) Possesses the Nisaab amount (612.36 grams of silver) or its equivalent value i.e.£226.83 as of 05/08/2019, after deducting one’s basic necessities and debts, on any of the three days of Qurbani, i.e. 10th, 11th and 12th of Zul-Hijjah. Unlike in the case of Zakaat, it is not necessary that this amount be in one’s possession for a complete lunar year.

                    Q.3. What animals can be slaughtered for Qurbani?

                    A) It is permissible to slaughter a male or female goat, sheep, ram, cow, bull, buffalo or camel for Qurbani.

                    A) (a) A one year old goat or sheep (b) A two year old cow, bull or buffalo, and (c) A five year old camel. Animals that are younger than the prescribed age are not suitable for Qurbani with the exception of sheep under specific circumstances.

                    Q.6. Is Qurbani necessary for a child? Can their parents do it on their behalf?
                    A) 6. Qurbani is not necessary upon a child whether they own wealth or not, nor is it necessary upon their parents/guardians to perform it on their behalf. However, if it is done on their behalf, the Qurbani will be valid and they will receive the reward for it.

                    A). It is not necessary on a Shari’ traveller to perform Qurbani.

                    A Shar’i traveller is one who travels on a journey for 78 kms or more. In any case, if a Shari’ travellers does perform Qurani despite it being not necessary, he/she will be rewarded for it.
                    However, if a Shari’ traveller intends residing at the destination for 15 days or more then he/she will cease to be a traveller and the performance of Qurbani will be necessary.

                    A).a cow, bull, buffalo or camel will suffice for seven persons. A sheep, goat or ram on the other hand suffices for one person only.
                    Q.10. Can one make intention for multiple people in one Qurbani for the deceased?
                    A. One may make the intention of the Thawaab (reward) going to multiple people in one Qurbani animal if it is a Nafl (volunteer) Qurbani. When Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam performed Qurbani, he ordered two animals. He slaughtered one animal as his Wajib (necessary) Qurbani and the other as optional (Nafl) on behalf of his entire Ummah.
