How to Pray Eid According to Islam? Here are the Reviews
JAKARTA,TIMESJAZIRAH – After a month of fasting in the month of Ramadhan, it is time for Muslims to perform Eid prayers. How to pray Eid according to Islam? Follow the reviews from the Ministry of Religious Affairs (Kemenag).
According to the Director of Islamic Affairs of the Directorate General of the Islamic Community Guidance of Kemenag, Juraidi, that the law of Eid is a sunnah muakadah.
Meanwhile, the methods of Eid al-Fitr prayer based on Islam, the first is preceded by the intention of prayer. That is Ushalli sunnata li-idil fithri rak'ataini imaman / makmuman lillahi taala.
After the intention, then reading the prayer iftitah then continued with takbir 7 times. Among these 7 takbir reading are recited reading the sentence of dhikr: subhanallah walhamdulillah wala ilaha illallah wallahu akbar.
سبحان الله والحمد لله ولا إله إلا الله والله أكبر
Furthermore, in the first rakaat there is no obligated reading. It's just that the Messenger of Allah used to read QS Al-A'la after Alfatihah.
The methods of ruku' sujud and others are the same as praying 5 times.
Meanwhile, for the second rakaat, the prayer of Ied has takbir 5 times with reading between takbir equal to the first rakaat. After that reading QS Alfatihah continued with QS al-Ghashiyah. The reading was like on the era of prophet Muhammad saw.
The prayer of Ied will be ended with salam, after that, it will be continued with sermon. "After the prayer will be read Eid al-Fitr sermon. It is recommended that the congregation listen to the sermon before returning home, "he said.
However, Junaidi stated that sermon is part of the implementation of id prayers. "After that, the congregations are not expected to go home before the khutbah is over."
In addition, if the congregations don't listen to the sermon, their Id prayers are legitimate, but not perfect. While, the time of Eid prayer is held during syuruq time or the time of sunrise. Hopefully, fasting is accepted by Allah and can execute Eid Prayer and have 'silaturrahmi' with family and neighbors. (*)
