Question and Answer:

Q. What is the Takbeers that we have to recite around Eid time and on what day should we start and stop? How many times should it be recited? Do females also have to recite these Takbeers?

A. These Takbeers that you ask about are called the Takbeeraat of Tashreeq. It is Wajib (incumbent) for every adult Muslim male and female to recite the Takbeeraat of Tashreeq after every Fardh Salaat-performed with Jamaat or individually from the Fajr of the 9th of Zul-Hijjah to the Asr of the 13th of Zul Hijjah. (Multaqal Abhur, Majma’ul Anhur & ad-Durrul Muntaqa, Vol: 1, Pg: 259-260, D.K.I)

ويجب تكبير التشريق من فجر عرفة إلى عصر يوم العيد على المقيم بالمصر عقيب فرض أدى بجماعة مستحبة وعندهما إلى عصر آخر أيام التشريق على من يصلي الفرض وعليه العمل (ملتقى الأبحر، ج:?، ص: 25?، دار الكتب العلمية)

The Takbeeraat should be recited once only.

وصفته أن يقول مرة الله أكبر الله أكبر لا إله إلا الله والله أكبر الله أكبر ولله الحمد

(ملتقى الأبحر، ج:?، ص: ?6?، دار الكتب العلمية)

The words of the Takbeeraat of Tashreeq are as follows:

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْدُ

Transliteration: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar laa ilaha illallahu wallahu akbar. Allahu Akbar walillaahil hamd.

Translation: “Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. There is no deity besides Allah and Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest and all praises belong to Him Alone.”

Men should recite this Takbeer audibly whilst females should do so silently.

(يجب على المرأة) بلا رفع الصوت لأن صوتها عورة (مجمع الأنهر، ج: ?، ص: 26?، دار الكتب العلمية)
