Dhul-Hijjah: Restricted and unrestricted Takbir


*Restricted and unrestricted Takbir* Question I hear some people reciting Takbir (saying: “Allahu Akbar ) after each Salah during the Days of Tashriq until the ‘Asr Prayer of the third day. Is this correct or not? *Answer* It is prescribed to recite an unrestricted or a restricted Takbir during ‘Eid-ul-Adha ▪ _The unrestricted Takbir_ can be recited at any time from the beginning of Dhul-Hijjah until the last Day of Tashriq. ▪ _The restricted Takbir_ should be recited after the Obligatory Daily Prayers starting from the Fajr Prayer of the Day of ‘Arafah until the ‘Asr Prayer on the last Day of Tashriq. The evidence for the permissibility of doing this is the Ijma‘ (consensus of scholars) and the practice of the Sahabah . May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions! ------------------------------------------ Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’ Member     Committee Deputy Chairman     Chairman `Abdullah ibn Ghudayyan     `Abdul-Razzaq `Afify     `Abdul-`Aziz ibn `Abdullah ibn Baz
