March 07, 2014

What does the scholars and jurists say about a situation where the Imam forgets the takbeer after recitation and remembers it after Ruku in the Eid prayer, what will be the ruling?

Answer #: 190

                             In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

                                 As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In that situation he should say takbeer in Ruku without raising hands, do not do Qiyam for saying Takbeer and according to rule sajda-e-sahw is compulsory but in the Eid prayer, due to risk of distraction because of abundance of people sajda-e-sahw is excused.

وفی الخانیۃ : ''والسھو فی صلاۃالعید، وصلاۃالجمعۃ،والمکتوبۃ، وصلاۃالتطوع سواء،ومشائخناؒ قالوا: لایسجد للسھو فی العیدین والجمعۃ؛کیلا یقع الناس فی الفتنۃ۔                                (الخانیۃ بھامش الھندیۃ:1/186)
