In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Question: What time shoould we perform Eid prayerand how do we perform it?
Answer:The time of Eid Salah is after the sun has reached the height of a spear (which is close to 3 meters), and it can be offered until noon according to the following Hadith:
((Ahmad ibn Hassan records that Jundub (RA) said: "The Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) prayed the Eid-ul-Fitr prayer while the sun was [approximately] six meters above the horizon and the Eid of the sacrifice while the sun was three meters above the horizon."))
However, it is best to pray Al-Adha at the earliest time to enable people to slaughter their sacrifices; and it is recommended to delay Al-Fitr prayer, to enable people to give out their Sadaqah (zakatul-Fitr).
The Eid Salah is not preceded with Athan or Iqamah. Jabir bin Samurah reported, "I prayed the Eid prayer with Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him), on more than one occasion, without Athan or Iqamah." Hence, it is a Prophetic Sunnah not to give Athan or Iqamah. The Prophet PBUH used to deliver Eid Khutbah in two units and he used to sit down between the two parts of Khutbah.
Eid Salah consists of two Rak'at preceded by seven Takbirat in the first Rak'ah before reciting Al-Fatihah.
