I wanted to share these fatawa against the common innovation we find in the masaajid of making takbir in unison before the eid prayer. The Sunnah is for everyone to make takbir alone to themselves and not in unison. If the voices do overlap unintentionally then the Scholars say that is fine, but people should not be led in takbiraat over the microphone.
We ask Allah to guide the Muslims to that which is correct.
Shaikh Muqbil Ibn Hadi al-Wadi’ee rahimahullah:
Question: What is the ruling on the reciting of Takbir in unison on ‘eid?
This has not been reported from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam. So we do not advise this and if anyone did this, we advise them not to do it. And we cannot rule that this person is an innovator and in Allah aid is sought.
What is the ruling on sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet and his wives between the Takbirat of eid?
I do not know anything reported on this from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam
Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen rahimahullah was asked:
It is found in some Masaajid in the city on the day of eid before the prayer that the Imam makes Takbir through the microphone and the congregants make takbir with him. So what is the ruling on this action?
The form that the questioner mentioned was not reported from the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam and his Companions. The Sunnah is for every one to make takbir themselves”
[Fatawa Arakan ul-Islam pg. 305]
He was also asked:
We have in some Masaajid where the Muadhin makes takbir on the microphone and the people repeat it behind him. So is this considered an innovation or is it allowed?
This is an innovation because it is well-known from the guidance of the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam when it comes to the remembrances that everyone remembers Allah, the Exalted by himself. So it is not necessary (rather prohibited) to leave the guidance of the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam and his Companion”.
