After maghrib and ʿishāʾ prayers on the evening of Eid al-Fiṭr, and after ṣubḥ prayers, and after the Eid al-Fiṭr prayer, it is recommended that one says these takbīrs:

اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ، اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَ اللهُ أَکْبَـرُ، اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ وَ لِلّٰهِ الْحَمْدُ، اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ عَلىٰ مَا هَدَانَا

allāhu akbar, allāhu akbar, lā ilāha illal lāhu wal lāhu akbar, allāhu akbar
wa lillāhil ḥamd, allāhu akbar ʿalā mā hadānā
Allah is greater;57 Allah is greater; there is no god but Allah and Allah
is greater; Allah is greater and all praise is for Allah; Allah is greater
for having guided us.

57 As mentioned in the section on adhān, the complete meaning of this statement is ‘Allah is greater than what He is described as’.
