Eid Takbeer (Supplications)

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, la ilaha illaAllah
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi-lhamd

Other narrations included repeating Allahu akbar 3 times.

As for the popular Takbeerat that adds the extended Salawat of the Prophet (SAW) and his household at the end, that addition needs to have some evidence from the authentic Sunnah to support it. UNTIL THEN, THEY ARE CONSIDERED QUESTIONABLE, i.e., can be considered Bida'h (i.e. creating new ways to perform an act of worship).

As for saying the Takbeerat in unison as an act of worship (e.g. not for teaching/learning purposes), it is against the teachings in the authentic Sunnah and the practice of the Sahabah (may Allah be pleased on them).

May Allah accept our deeds and help us to follow the authentic teachings of the Prophet (SAW), especially, when we are trying to do something good.

Salam alaikum,

you also say the 2. version of Takbeer with 3 & 2 but I read:

Question: What is the wording of the takbeer and the tahmeed?

Response: That one says:

((Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, wallaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar wa lillaahil-Hamd)),

or one says:

((Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar Allaahu Akbar wa lillaahil-Hamd)).

Shaykh Ibn al-Uthaymeen
Fataawa Ramadhaan - Volume 2, Page 948, Fatwa No.936;
Fiqh al-Ibaadaat libni 'Uthaymeen - Page 216

Can you help me? I feel confused regarding that?
