Eid Salat

Eid salat is performed on the morning of Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha. The Eid prayer is most likely an individual obligation (fard al-ayn) and Niyyah for both Eid salat is made as Wajib, though some Islamic scholars argue it is only a collective obligation (fard al-kifayah).[38] It consists of two raka’at, with seven (or three for the followers Imam Hanafi) takbirs offered before the start of the first raka’ahand five (or three for the followers of Imam Hanafi) before the second. After the salat is completed, a sermon (khutbah) is offered. However, the khutbah is not an integral part of the Eid salat.[39] The Eid salat must be offered between sunrise and true noon i.e. between the time periods for Fajr and Dhuhr.
