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). It is the Sunnah of our father, Ibrahim (peace be upon him) when Allah ransomed his son with a great sacrifice. 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]
