The wording of the Takbirs of Tashriq

Question

I would like to know what is the reference for the common recital during the days of the 9 to 13 Dhul Hijjah?

And how many times should the Allahu Akbar be recited at the beginning?

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, la ilaha illallahu wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa lillahil hamd.

 

Answer

Sayyiduna ‘Umar, Sayyiduna ‘Ali and Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhum) are all reported to have recited the following takbirs, from the morning of the day of ‘Arafah (9 Dhul Hijjah) till the ‘Asr salah of the 13th of Dhul Hijjah:

Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar, la ilaha illallahu wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar wa lillahil hamd.

(Kitabul Athar, Hadith: 209 , Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 5696-5699, Al-Awsat of Ibnul Mundhir, Hadith: 2198-2200 & Al-Mu’jamul Kabir)

 

These reports are considered reliable.

For further authentication of these narrations, see: Nasbur Rayah, before Hadith: 2858, ‘Umdatul Qari, before Hadith: 970 & Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.2 pg.197-198)

 

Note: In these narrations, Allahu Akbar is recited only twice at the beginning, and not thrice.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
