Sunnah to follow before Eid Prayers

Eid Prayers

  1. Eid-ul-Fitr
  2.  Eid-ul-Adha

Masala 1: The first day of the month of Shawwal is called Eid-ul-Fitr and the tenth day of the month of Dhul-Hijja is called Eid-ul-Adha. These two days are of great rejoicing in Islam.

Masala 2: All the essential requisites of Jumu’a Prayer are also applicable to the prayer of both Eids except the Khutba which is obligatory and imperative in Juma prayer and is delivered before the prayer. But the Khutba is not obligatory in Eid prayer. It is Sunnah in Eid prayers and is delivered after offering the prayer. Listening of the Khutba of both Eids are also governed by the same rules as that of Juma prayer i.e. talking, praying etc. during the Khutba is prohibited.
