Shaikh Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Wad’iee rahimahullah was asked:


Is the opening takbir in the eid prayer included in the seven takbeerat in the eid prayer? And is the takbir for changing position included in the five takbeerat in the second rakat? And what is the ruling on raising the hands with every takbir?

Answer: That which is apparent to me is that it is not included. It is a good question and the People of Knowledge mentioned this. Some said that it is included and some say it is not included. What is apparent is that it is not included because after the opening takbeer, he opens the prayer, and after opening the prayer, he makes seven takbeerat. Raising the hands with every takbir is not established”.
