The Method of Performing Eid al-Fitr prayer is as follows- “I intend offering two Rakaats of Ed al-Fitr” Salaah followed by two or six Takbirs for Allah behind this Imam.” After completing this intention start the Salaah by raising the hand straight up to the ear and saying Allahu-Akbar and release them and again lift them straight up saying Allahu-Akbar and release them and lift your hands again say Allahu-Akbar and then fold hands. Means repeat for three times and say Allahu-Akbar.
Method of Eid al-Fitr Prayer, Eid al-Adha Worship
You should raise your hands straight in the air up to the ear as like Takbir, each time you should say Allahu-Akbar. After saying the Takbir, let don’t raise your hand up. In meanwhile each Takbir, you should read the Sub’haanAllah three times. After the third Takbir, don’t raise your hand but folding them. In short fold, your hands after the first Takbir and fourth Takbir and after the second Takbir and third Takbir raise your hand. The one thing keep in the mind that “Whenever Imam read something after Takbir, then fold your hand and whenever Imam is not read Anything, then hand your hands straight in the air.
The Imam should read Taawuz and Tasmiyah silently and then pray Surah al-Fatiha and one more Surah loudly. After this whole process Imam should say three Takbirs but the third one he should not fold his hands but keep them asides. And then Imam should say one more Takbir without hanging his hand in the air and then he can start “Ruku”, thus completing the Rakaat unit. Stand up straight When Imam saying Sami Allah human Hamidah, and say Rabbana Lakal Hamd in a low voice. When Imam saying Allahu-Akbar then go to the Sujud.
Lying down your head in the front of Allah, after this you complete seat down on a knee. After the Imam finishes the prayer by turning face to the right side and saying “Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullah and turn to the left side, You should follow him. Seat in the same position, then the Imam should give a short speech. Please stay still while speech and listen.
So that means that Eid al-Fitr (OR Eid al-Adha) consists of six Takbirs, and then before Qiraat and followed by Takbeer-e-Tahrima in the first Rakaat and later three Qiraat in the second Rakaat and before the Takbir for Ruku.
