Question 3 of 6:
What is the verdict for using a microphone to say the Takbeer during the Eid after every Athan ?
To say the takbeer in this fashion is an innovation. It is a recommended act to say the
takbeer during the Eid in the marketplace, the home, the street, in the car while driving,
in the bed, etc. There isn’t any evidence to support the takbeer to be said in unison, or
for a person to stand up and say it on the microphone. Both of these actions are
incorrect. The takbeers aren’t a call to prayer, which the people must hear.
