Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

The best place for the Eid Salaat to be held is a large open area outside the city. This can be an established Musalla or Eid-Gah, or people may go to an open field to perform the Eid Salaah. Besides this it can also be held in the main masjid of the city or other masjids.

It is not proper to have Eid Salaah in small masjids or musallas in which the 5 times Salaah or Juma is not held. Similarly, having Eid Salaah in offices, workplace, homes etc. will not be allowed.

Topi and Turban are from among part of the dress of the Prophet (SAS). These were not confined to the performance of Salaah, but they were worn as part of his daily dress. On account of this, these are known to be the ‘Sunnat of the Prophet (SAS)’ with respect to wearing, and Muslim males are encouraged to adopt his dress. If not the turban, at least males should always wear a topi (cap).

And Allah knows best,
