Fataawa Series from the Scholars in Yemen – 6 : Eid al-Fitr

By Abu Abdur Rahman Yahya ibn Ali Al-Hajoree (May Allah preserve him), the Muhaddith , Sincere Avisor and Successor to Shaykh Muqbil (may Allah have mercy on him) in Dammaj; Trans. Abu Aaliyah Abdullah ibn Dwight Battle Doha, Qatar 1430 ©

Question 4 of 6:

A person comes to the prayer late and joins the second Rak’ah.

He says five takbeer with the Imam. How many does he say

during his second rak’ah?


First of all, it should be known that the takbeer in the prayer are sunnah. Therefore

there is no harm or sin for the person who intentionally leaves them. So in this case he

says the five takbeer with the imam and this is considered his first rak’ah. Then in his

second rak’ah he can say another five takbeer if he wants or he can leave them off if he

wants. Allah knows best.
