Ruling 1498

The Eid al-Fiṭr and Eid al-Aḍḥā prayer consists of two rakʿahs, and in each rakʿah after reciting Sūrat al-Ḥamd and the other surah, one says three takbīrs, although it is better that he says five takbīrs in the first rakʿah. Between every two takbīrs he should perform one qunūt [and so there will be a total of four qunūts in the first rakʿah]; and after the fifth takbīr he should say another takbīr, go into rukūʿ, perform two sajdahs, and then stand up. In the second rakʿah, he should say four takbīrs, and between every two takbīrs he should perform one qunūt [and so there will be a total of three qunūts in the second rakʿah]; and after the fourth takbīr he should say another takbīr, go into rukūʿ, perform two sajdahs, and then say tashahhud and the salām of the prayer.
