    Sunna on Eid Day

    It is essential to be in the best of forms, both physically and spiritually, on the blessed day of Eid. It was reported that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said (regarding the Friday Jumu’ah prayer), “This day is an Eid (festival) which Allah has ordained for the Muslims. Whoever comes to Friday (prayer), let him take a bath and if he has perfume then let him put some on. And upon you (I urge to use) is the tooth stick.” [Sunan Ibn Majah]

    It was reported that Abd-Allah Ibn Umar said that Umar Ibn Al- Kattab took a brocade cloak that was for sale in the market and brought it to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH), and said, “O’ Messenger of Allah, buy this and adorn yourself with it for Eid and for receiving the delegations.” The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said to him, “Rather this is the dress of one who has no share (of piety or of reward in the Hereafter)…” [Sahih al-Bukhari]

    The Prophet (PBUH) did agree with Umar on adorning oneself on Eid, but he condemned the cloak that was brought by Umar, which was made of silk.

    Anas Ibn Maalik said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) did not go out on the morning of Eid-Ul-Fitr until he had eaten some dates, of which he would eat an odd number. [Sahih al-Bukhari]

    Reciting Takbeer on the day of Eid has been considered a great Sunnah, because Allah (SWT) said, “(He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allah [i.e. to say Takbeer for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him” [Al-Baqarah 2:185]

    Ibn Umar narrated that, “The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to go out to the ‘Eid prayers walking, and come back walking.” [Sunan Ibn Majah]

    Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) also used to take two different routes while going to the mosque and returning home, as reported by Jabir Ibn Abd-Allah. [Al-Bukhari]

    Don’t forget to greet your fellow Muslims with Eid wishes and blessings, as it was a practice of the companions of Prophet (PBUH).

    It was narrated that Jubayr Ibn Nufayr said: “When the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) met one another on the day of Eid, they would say to one another, ‘Taqabbala Allah minna wa minkum’ (May Allah accept good deeds) from us and from you.” [Ibn Hajar said, its isnaad is hasan. Al-Fath, 2/446]

    Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri said, “The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to go out on the day of Eid and lead the people in praying two Rak’ah, then he would say the Salaam and stand on his two feet facing the people while they were sitting down. He would say: ‘Give in charity. Give in charity.’ Those who gave most in charity were the women, (they would give) earrings and rings and things. If he wanted to send out an expedition he would mention it, otherwise he would leave.” [Sunan Ibn Majah]

    The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Exchange presents with one another, for they remove ill feelings from the heart.” [Tirmidhi]

    PAY ZAKAT

    The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said "There is no envy except in two: a person whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it in the right way, and a person whom Allah has given wisdom (i.e. religious knowledge) and he gives his decisions accordingly and teaches it to the others."

    Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim

    PAY ZAKAT-UL-FITR

    Ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, made it an obligation to pay charity (zakāt al-fiṭr) of a portion of dates or barely at the end of Ramadan upon every freeman and servant, every male and female among the Muslims.
