Much of the good deeds (i.e. prayers, giving charity, fighting in the cause of Allah, reciting the Holy Quran, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil …etc,) which have their rewards multiplied in these days.
The Muslim should observe Eid prayer in its place and attend the ceremony, which is after the prayer, and take lessons from it. Moreover, he has to know the wisdom of Eid prayer and know that it is a day of gratitude and doing good deeds, it is not a day of evil or season for committing sins.
Sacrificing the animals should be done on the Day of Sacrifice (10th of Dhul-Hijja) and on the days of Tashriq (11th, 12th and 13th of Dhul-Hijja).

And it has been reported that “The Prophet sacrificed with his own hands two horned full grown rams reciting the name of Allah and glorifying Him (saying Allahu Akbar). He placed his foot on their sides (while sacrificing)” [Agreed Upon]

He felt that a student of knowledge should dedicate all of his time to the pursuit of knowledge, and that he should disseminate knowledge only after he gains expertise in a particular field. Al-Mahdee Abu ‘Abdullaah reported that he once heard Sufyaan say:
“The first stage of knowledge is silence; the second is listening and memorizing; the third is applying what one learned; and the fourth is teaching and spreading the knowledge that one learned.”
The profound wisdom contained in this advice makes it deserving of being taught to all students of knowledge, and even being written in gold. In a similar vein, Ath-Thauree once said:
