By Shaykh al-Ḥadīth Mawlānā Faḍl al-Raḥman al-Aʻẓamī
Translated by Muftī Afḍal Ḥusayn Ilyās
Here follows an abridged translation of an Urdu treatise entitled ʻĪd Gāh kī Sunnīyat by the erudite and noble scholar ʻAllāmah Shaykh al-Ḥadīth Mawlānā Faḍl al-Raḥman al-Aʻẓamī (b. 1356/1946). The treatise was initially abridged and translated by Muftī Afḍal Ḥusayn Ilyās (d. 1439/2018). Here we present to you an edited version of this translation, which has been edited for style, ease of reading and adopting Arabic transliteration standards.
Shaykh al-Ḥadīth Mawlānā al-Aʻẓamī in his treatise firstly finds that performing Ṣalāt al-ʻĪd at the Muṣallā is a Sunnah and has been the standard practice from the time of Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ. He goes on to further elucidate this by quoting various classical and contemporary ʻulamā who all agree on this. Towards the end he goes on to establish whether sport grounds, parks, etc. are permitted for performing Ṣalāt al-ʻĪd. For those readers who are interested, in particular students and scholars, the full treatise with detailed references is available online here.
We make duʻāʼ that Allāh ﷻ instill in us the importance of following the Sunnah of His Messenger ﷺ at all times.
