Method of Eid prayers

First make the Niyyah (intention) by reciting "I intend to perform two raka'ats Eid-ul-Adh'haa waajib with six waajib takbeers behind this Imaam."

Then raising both hands up to the ears, say Allahu Akbar and fold your hands in the front this is Takbeer-e-Tahreemah which will followed by three Waajib Takbeers,and recite the ‘Sanaa’, subhaanakallahumma till the end and then say Allahu Akbar thrice, each time raising both hands up to the ears and drop them. After each takbeer there should be a pause in which Subhanallah may be recited thrice. After the third takbeer the hands should be dropped but fo1ded in front and recite Aoozubillah, Bismillah, Surah Fatehaa and some other Surah and then perform Ruku and Sajdah as usual. The recitation by the lmaam should be done loudly.

The second raka’at will be performed in such a way that Surah Fatehaa and some other Surah will be recited first, then three takbeers will be said, as in the first raka’at. In all these three takbeers hands will not to be folded but dropped after each takbeer. And then go into the Ruku just after the fourth takbeer.

After comleting 'Eid Salaat recite audibly the Takbeer:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha illallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Wa lillahil Hamd."

"Allah  is the greatest, Allah  is the greatest. There is no deity besides Allah  and Allah  is the greatest. Allah is the greatest and all praises are for Allah  only."

Mas'alah: Khutbah after the Eid Salaat is Sunnah. However the listening of the Khutbah is Waajib.
