Method of performing Eid Salaah

Q: What are the different methods of performing eid salaah proven from Sunnah?

Bismillaah

A: We do not know of all. However, the method we know is that the imaam will say the takbeer-e-tahreemah and recite the thanaa after which he will say the takbeer for the second and third time and raise his hands and leave them at the side at each time. He will then say the takbeer for the fourth time and fold his hands and recite Surah Faatihah and the surah and complete the rakaat as normal. The second rakaat will be read as normal. After the surah is completed in the second rakaat the imaam will say the takbeer thrice and raise his hands each time and leave it at the side. He will then say the takbeer for the fourth time and proceed to ruku.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
