Eid Mubarak

Eid Prayers(Most likely on Sunday, May 24, 2020):  

With the State of Michigan closed for non-essential activities and the safety of all congregants, we advise all families to observe all of the Sunnahs of Eid (of taking a ghusl, eating a breakfast, wearing one’s best [permissible] garments, saying the general takbīrat after Fajr, etc.) and then praying a congregational prayer at home with one’s family.

The Eid prayer has special takbīrat. The Shafi’ and Hanafi methods of prayers are explained in the pictures below (Scroll down). In the Hanbali School of thought (and Ibn Taymiyyah), There are 7 takbīrat in the first rak’ah inclusive of takbīrat al-iḥrām, and 6 in the second rak’ah inclusive of the takbīrat al-qiyām. This is also the practice in the Maliki school of thought. 

Our Masjid will broadcast Eid khuṭbah, and all families will pray their individual congregational prayers at a given time, and then, after you finish your own Eid prayers, you can listen to the Masjid’s khutbah broadcast by Imam Ehsan at 10:00 AM in-shaa-Allah.

Note that the Shafi school of thought encourages the Khutbah even though it is not obligatory if 2 or more men are present. The Hanafi school of thought encourages 4 or more men (including the Imam) as a requirement to pray Salah-ul Eid.
