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]

Takbeer of Dhul-Hijjah

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-Qa3dah) 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 3Alayhi 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.

Takbeer at Specific Time:

It starts from Fajr on the day of 3Arafah and lasts until the sun sets on the last day of the days of Tashreeq, in addition to the takbeer that may be recited at any time.

So when a person says the tasleem at the end of the obligatory prayer, he should pray for forgiveness (by saying Astaghfir-Allaah) three times, and say:“Allaahumma anta al-salaam wa minka al-salaam, tabaarakta yaa dhaa’l-jalaali wa’l-ikraam (“O Allaah, You are al-Salaam [the One Who is free from all defects and deficiencies), and from You is all peace, blessed are You, O possessor of majesty and honour)”, then start the takbeer.

 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)

Takbeer for Eid al-Fitr

At the end of Ramadaan Allaah has prescribed that His slaves should recite takbeer.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “(He wants that you) must complete the same number (of days), and that you must magnify Allaah [i.e. to say Takbeer (Allaahu Akbar: Allaah is the Most Great)] for having guided you so that you may be grateful to Him” [soorah Al-Baqarah, v:185]

“that you must magnify Allaah” means venerating Him in your hearts and on your lips, by pronouncing the takbeer.

Word of Takbeer:

الله أكبر ، الله أكبر ، لا إله إلا الله ، والله أكبر ، الله أكبر ، ولله الحمد

Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah,

Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, wa Lillaahi’l-hamd

Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, there is no god except Allaah
Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, and all praise be to Allaah

Or you can say Allaahu akbar three times:

الله أكبر، الله أكبر، الله أكبر، لا إله إلا الله . والله 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

Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, there is no god except Allaah,
Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, and all praise be to Allaah

Both are permissible.

It is Sunnah:

This takbeer is Sunnah according to the majority of scholars.It is Sunnah for both men and woman, in the mosque, in the home and in the marketplace. Men should say it out loud, and women should say it quietly, because women are commanded to lower their voices.

Time for Takbeer:

The time for this takbeer begins when the sun sets on the night of 3Eid (i.e., the night before).

If it is known that the new month has begun when the sun sets, such as when the people have completed thirty days of Ramadaan, or when it is proven that the new moon of Shawwaal has been sighted. And it ends when the prayer begins, i.e., when they start the 3Eid prayer then the time for the takbeer ends.  (1)

It was narrated from 3Urwah ibn al-Zubayr and Abu Salamah ibn 3Abd al-Rahmaan that they used to recite the takbeer out loud when they came to the prayer-pace in the morning, and that Naafi3 ibn Jubayr used to recite the takbeer out loud when he came to the prayer-place in the morning of the day of 3Eid.

It was narrated from Ibn 3Umar that he used to come to the prayer-place on the morning of the day of 3Eid al-Fitr, when the sun had risen, and he would recite takbeer until he reached the prayer-place, then he would recite takbeer in the prayer-place until the imaam sat down and stopped reciting takbeer.
