The Eid Takbirs in the Maliki School

Answered by Shaykh Rami Nsour

Question: Can you clarify the Maliki ruling on the Takbirs for the two Eids?

Answer: According to the Maliki school, the Eid prayer has seven takbirs in the first unit (rak’ah) and six in the second. The hands will be raised only for the first takbir in the first rak’ah. After the seventh takbir, the Fatiha and a short sura are recited.

Once the second prostration is completed, a person says the takbir to go to the standing position and then performs five takbirs. There is no raising of the hands in these takbirs as well. After the fifth takbir, Fatiha and a short sura are recited and then the prayer continues like any other two-rak’ah prayer.
