As from Fajr on the 9th day of Dhu-al Hijjah, up until Asr on the 13th day of Dhu-al Hijjah, it is Waajib upon each Muslim to recite the Takbir of Tashriq in the following words:


Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Laa ilaha illallahu wallahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar wa Lillahil Hamd.”

Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest. There is no god but Allah and Allah is the greatest and to Allah belong all praise.”


It is obligatory that this Takbir should be recited after every Fardh Salaah during the abovementioned period. It is irrelevant whether you are performing Salaah with Jama’ah or on your own. The Takbir should be recited either way. However, male Muslims should recite it in a loud voice, while female Muslims should recite it softly.


For South Africa: Takbir starts on Thurs Fajr (25 Oct) and ends on Mon Asr.
