Takbir Al-Tashriq


Takbir al- Tashriq, the recitation of Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa lillahil hamd after every Fardh Salaah commencing from the Fajr of the 9th of Dhul-Hijjah until after the Asr of the 13th of Dhul-Hijjah. (Shami vol. 1 pg. 406) 

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد

  • Women who are menstruating are not obliged to recite the Takbiraat.
  • One should recite the Takbir straight after saying salaam in Salah. If one forgets then remembers whilst seated on the Musallah and has not yet spoken to anyone, then he should recite the Takbir-e-Tashriq.

  • If a person does Qadha of the Salah after the days of Tashriq, he will not recite the Takbiraat.
  • In the days of Tashriq if a person performs Qadha of a Salah which was missed before these days, he will not recite the Takbir after the Salah.
  • A woman will say the Takbir softly and men will say it audibly.
  • A person who joins the Jamaat late in the Masjid will say the Takbir after he has performed his Salah.  He will also say it aloud.
