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

اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ، اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ، لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَاللهُ أَکْبَـرُ، اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ وَلِلّٰهِ الْحَمْدُ، اَللهُ أَکْبَـرُ عَلَىٰ 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;61 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.

61As mentioned in the section on adhān, the complete meaning of this statement is ‘Allah is greater than what He is described as’.
