How Many People Needed to Perform the Eid Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah

Question:

Is it permissible for two men to perform the Salâtul Eid together? Is there a minimum number of people for the Salatul Eid to be valid?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Answer:

The same conditions which are needed for the Jummah Salah are also required for the Eid Salaah.

There needs to be three people besides the Imam (four Muslims) for the congregation condition to be fulfilled.  The presence of females or minors only is not enough. (Raddul Muhtar p.24 v.3)

Only Allah knows best
