Ruling On Saying Taqabbal Allahu Minna Wa Minkum

It was narrated that that Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) used to congratulate one another on the occasion of Eid by saying Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa minkum (May Allaah accept (this worship) from us and from you).

It was narrated that Jubayr ibn Nufayr said: When the companions of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) met one another on the day of Eid, they would say to one another: Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa mink.

Imam Ahmad (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: There is nothing wrong with one man saying to another on the day of Eid: Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa mink (May Allaah accept (this worship) from us and from you). This was narrated by Ibn Qudaamah in al-Mughni.

It is permissible to offer greetings and congratulations on Eid, and there is no specific greeting. Rather the greetings that people customarily use are permissible so long as no sin is involved.

Etiquettes of Eid

Below are some etiquettes of Eid

  1. Offering congratulations/Salutation.

The etiquette of Eid also include good wishes by people, no matter what the wording, such as saying to one another Taqabbala Allah minna wa minkum (May Allah accept (good deeds) from us and from you” or “Eid mubaarak” and other permissible expressions of congratulations.

  1. Doing ghusl (bath) before going for Eid prayer:

It is mustahabb (recommended) to do ghusl before going for Eid prayers. Just like it is recommended for Jumu’ah, a Muslim is advised to observe it.

If it is Eid fitr, note that it is a day we must emphasis that fasting has ended, so, endeavour to eat something.

It is strongly recommended even if it just little, you need to take in food, snacks or fruits. The Prophet SAW used not to go out on the morning of Eid al-Fitr until he had eaten some dates.

This however does not apply to Eid-il-Adha, which does not permit eating before going to Eid until one comes back from the prayer.

  1. Adorning oneself on the occasion of Eid:

Every Muslim is advised to wear his or her best clothes. But women must not show off their beauty to commit sin.

  1. Do Takbeer on the day of Eid:

This is one of the greatest Sunnahs on the day of Eid.

  1. Lastly, going to the prayer by one route and returning by another important etiquette.

On the day of Eid, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to vary his route. (al-Bukhaari)

It was said that the reason for that was so that the two routes would testify for him on the Day of Resurrection, for the earth will speak on the Day of Resurrection and say what was done on it, both good and bad.
