Takbirut Tashreeq

  Anonymous       Wednesday, June 2, 2021

 Takbir al-Tashreeq (Arabic: تكبير التشريق) is a form of prayer said by Muslims across the world after Fajr Prayer on 9th Dhul-Hijja to 13th. It is Wajib for every Muslim to say this prayer loudly for males and silently for females.  It spans a total 23 Fardh salah(prayers). 

Takbir al-Tashreeq is the recitation of the following:

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La Ilaha Ilallahu Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Wa Lillahil Hamd.

Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest. There is no deity besides Allah and Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest and all praises are for Allah only.

Origin of This Prayer

Allah commanded Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Isma'il. A ram from Heaven was sent to assist Ibrahim when he was about to cut Isma'il as commanded by Allah. The angels chanted "Allah is great Allah is great (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest). "Allah is the only God, and Muhammad is His messenger" (There is none worthy of worship besides Allah and Allah is the Greatest).  When Isma'il heard this exchange, he exclaimed "Allahu Akbar and thanks be to Allah" (Allah is the Greatest and to Allah belongs all praise).


Thanks for reading Takbirut Tashreeq
