Islam EID post #1  quote:



(The Islamic holiday celebration)
The first day of the month Shawwaal. is Eid ul-Fitr. marking a day of celebaration and thanks for Allah, our Creator and Cherisher. Ramadan ends here. Most Muslim celebarate Eid for at least 3 days.

Here is what the Prophet use to do on the day of Eid (Sunnah), May Allah's peace and blessings be upon him:

To rise early in the morning.
Take a full bath.

Clean the teeth.

Wear the best cloths that he had.

Wear perfume.
To eat something sweet like dates before leaving home.
Go to the Eid prayer location very early. (The Prophet use to offer Eid prayer in the central location, that is not to offer it in a mosque of a locality without any legitimate excuse).
The Prophet used to go to the Eid Prayer location by one route and will return through another route.
He used to go for Eid on foot.
He used to chant slowly on the way to the Eid prayer location the following words: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Laa ilaaha illallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Wa lillahil Hamd." (Translation: Allah is the greatest, He is the greatest. There is no god except Allah. He is the greatest. All praises and thanks are for Him)

The Prophet used to give Sadqa-e-Fitr (zakatul fitr) for before the Eid day. But if you have not done so please give now before the Eid. (Giving just before Eid is fine, but it is against the spirit and the purpose of it. Ask your local mosque about how much and where to pray)
Method of Eid prayers

Eid prayer consists of two units of prayer (Rakas) with six Takbeers (the raising of the hands while saying Allahu Akbar [God is the Greatest]) in congregation, followed by the Khutba (sermon) of Eid.


Follow the Imam by raising both hands up to the ears, say Allahu Akbar, this is the first Takbeer to enter in the Salat.

Then fold your hands in the front and recite the ‘Sanaa', ("subhaanakallahumma..). till the end and
Then say Allahu Akbar thrice, following you imam, each time raising both hands up to the ears and droping them. After each takbeer there is going to be a slight pause in which Subhanallah may be recited thrice.
After the third Takbeer the hands should be folded in front and listen to the imam reciting Aoozubillah, Bismillah, Surah Fateha and some other Surah and
Then perform Ruku(bowing) as Imam says Allahu Akbar and

Then go to Sajdah(prostration) as usual following your Imam's Takbeer.
In the second Raka, the Imam will first recite Surah Fateha and some other Surah. Then he will say three Takbeers after it. In all of these three Takbeer,s hands will not to be folded but dropped after each Takbeer. And
Then go into the Ruku just after the fourth takbeer.

Listening to the Khutbah after the Eid Salaat is Waajib (obligatory).
