The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Revive the Sunnah


Assalaamu 3Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah

It is Sunnah to recite takbeer at any time during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah and all the days of Tashreeq, starting from the beginning of the month of Dhul-Hijjah (i.e., from sunset on the last day of Dhul-Q’adah) until the end of the days of al-Tashreeq, which is when the sun sets on the thirteenth day of Dhul-Hijjah).

Ibn 3Umar and Abu Hurayrah (radi Allaahu 3anhuma) used to go out to the market-place on first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, reciting Takbeer, and the people used to recite Takbeer because of their Takbeer. (1)

Ibn 3Umar (radi Allaahu 3anhu) reported  that the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: “There are no days on which good deeds are greater or more beloved to Allaah than on these ten days, so recite much Tahleel (saying Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah), Takbeer (saying Allaahu akbar) and Tahmeed (saying Alhamdu Lillaah),” or similar words. (2)

Revive this Sunnah by doing audible takbeer during all of the ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.

 

Description of the Takbeer

The scholars differed concerning the form of the Takbeer.

1 – The first view is that it is:

” الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. لا إله إلا الله ، الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. ولله الحمد “

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah,

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, wa lillaahi’l-hamd

2 – The second view is that it is:

” الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. لا إله إلا الله ، الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. ولله الحمد “

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah,

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, wa lillaahi’l-hamd

3 – The third view is that it is:

” الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. لا إله إلا الله ، الله أكبر .. الله أكبر .. ولله الحمد “

Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, Allaahu Akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah,

Allaahu akbar, Allaahu Akbar, wa lillaahi’l-hamd

The matter is broad in scope because there is no text narrated from the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam which specifies a particular form of the Takbeer. (3)
