Going to and Returning from the Musallaa

 Going to and Returning from the Musallaa

Jaabir bin ‘Abdullaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “When it was the day of ‘Eid the Prophet  (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) used to alter his route (of returning).” 30

Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawzeeyah said: “The Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) used to change his route on the days of ‘Eid, such that he went by one route and returned by another. It is said (he did this) to give salaam upon the people of both routes. Or so that both groups get some of his blessings. Or so that anybody who has a need can take care of it. Or to make manifest the rituals of Islaam…. – and this is the most correct opinion – for all of these reasons and for other reasons of wisdom which his  (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) actions contain.” 31

Imaam an-Nawaawee (may Allaah have mercy on him) after quoting the previous sayings said: “Even if the reason is not known, it is still definitely preferred to make it a ruling guideline to be followed and Allaah knows best.”32

NOTE: First: Imam al-Baghawee said in Sharh-us-Sunnah (4/302-303): “It is preferred that the people leave for the, musalla after praying the dawn prayer (Fajr) so that they can take their places and make takbeer. While the Imaam proceeds when it is time for the prayer”

Second: Tirmidhee (530), Ibn Maajah (161) transmit from ‘Alee ibn Abee Taalib that he said: “From the sunnah is to proceed to the ‘Eid by foot” 33

When to eat during the ‘Eid

 When to eat during the ‘Eids

Reported from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Messenger of Allaah would not set out in the morning of ‘Eid ul-Fitr until he had eaten some dates.” 42

Imaam al-Muhallab said: “The wisdom behind eating before the ‘Eid prayer is so that no per son with doubt in his mind thinks that the fasting remains until after the prayer. So it is as if he (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) wanted to stop this from occurring” 43

Buraidah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Prophet  (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) would not leave on the morning of ‘Eid-ul-Fitr until he had eaten and on the day of ‘Adhaa he would not eat until he had returned from the prayer and he would eat from his sacrifice.” 44

The renowned scholar Ibn al-Qayyim said: “…as for ‘Eid-ul- ‘Adhaa, then he (SAW) would not eat until he returned from the musallaa and he would eat from his sacrifice.” 45

The renowned scholar as-Shawkaanee 46 said: “The wisdom behind delaying eating on the day of ‘Adhaa, is because it is a day in which slaughtering and eating from the sacrifice has been legislated. Therefore it has been prescribed that the eating be from the sacrifice. This view was held by Ibn Qudaamah.” 47

Zain ibn Munayyir 48 said: “Eating by the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) in both ‘Eids occurred at the time for which it has been legislated to give the sadaqa connected to that ‘Eid. Giving sadaqat-ul-fitr before going to the musallaa and giving sadaqat-ul-‘Adhaa after slaughtering the sacrifice.”

42. Reported by al-Bukhaaree (953), at-Tirmidhee (543), Ibn Maajah (1754) and Ahmad (3/126,164,232).
43. Fath-ul-Baaree (2/447) Refer to what the author has said regarding the wisdom in preferring dates.
44. Reported by at-Tirmidhee (542), Ibn Maajah (1756) and ad-Daarimee (1/375) Ahmad (5/352) and its chain is hasan.
