How to Pray Eid
The steps for performing Salat al-Eid
Begin by making takbeer after fajr.
Pray Fajr prayer. (Eid salat is NOT a replacement of Fajr prayer)
Shower and wear your best outfit.
Make takbeer with your family.
Around 8:00 a.m. and after making Wudu, lead your family in two rakat.
After the 1st Takbeerh of the salat make Takbeer seven more times before reciting al- Fatahah.
Resume your salat normally and after standing from sajud make Takbeer five times and complete your Salat as normal.
**Different Schools of Thought have various opinions regarding the number of Takbeerat, all are acceptable**
The recitation of Salat al-Eid is an aloud recitation
There is not a Khutbah for Salat al-Eid while praying at home.
After salah, if you are going to perform a sacrifice, eat from that meat after Eid prayer.
