Highlights

Eid ul-Fitr 2020: The Eid Namaz will be performed in the same way as in the masjids, the only difference is there will be no Khutba (sermon) being delivered by the Imam.

The Eid Namaz will be performed in the same way as in the masjids, and the only difference is there will be no Khutba (sermon) being delivered by the Imam. It will be similar to a regular namaz.

Eid Namaz Timing: The Eid namaz timing starts from half an hour after the sunrise and lasts till before Zohar namaz time. The person who is proficient in reciting Quran should lead the prayer.

The Eid namaz has two rakats, but, it has extra 'takbeers'. Takbeer is when one says "Allah hu Akbar" while raising the hands till the ears in the namaz. Allah hu Akbar, the Arabic word which means Allah is great. During the regular namaz, 'takbeer' is recited only once, but for the Eid namaz, Takbeer has to be recited 6 times in two rakats.

Eid-ul-Fitr Namaz ki Niyat

1. Niyat ki maine 2 rakat namaz Wajib Eid ul Fitr ki, 6 Takbiro ke, Muh mera Kaaba shareef ki taraf, Piche is Imam ke, Allah hu Akbar.

2. Make niyat for Eid-ul-Fitr for two rakats Wajib as above and then lift your hands and touch your ear lobes and say 'Allahu Akbar' and then keep them folded below the navel as you always do.

3. Now recite 'Sana' and say Allah hu Akbar three times (Three Takbeers) For the first two takbeers you lift your hands till ear lobes and release them and after the third takbeer fold your hands again like in normal namaz position. After this recite Surah Fatiha and one surah of your choice as you do during regular namaz. Perform sajda twice and come back to standing position.

4. Then you begin the second Rakat recite Surah Fatiha and one surah of your choice. After you finish the second Rakat say Allah hu Akbar but don't go into ruku, raise your hands and release your hands three times. Fourth time say Allah hu Akbar and go to sajda. Finish your namaz like you always do. Make supplication after you finish your namaz.

In masjid, Imam delivers the khutbah (sermon) of Eid, which is not allowed when the namaz is performed at home. The namaz can be performed at home either alone or with other family members.

During Ramadan, Muslims observe Roza for 30 days. Eid ul-Fitr is confirmed after the crescent moon has been sighted. Sometimes the moon is sighted on the 29th or 30th day of Ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on May 25 as the crescent could not be sighted today.
