Eid Ul-Fitr is just around the corner and we made a simple Eid Prayer at home guide. Eid Prayer will not be carried out in mosques this year due to the current condition and pandemics. Many Muslims will be praying at home this year like other prayers. However, we are not the only generation who will pray at home.

It is permissible to pray Eid at home with family. Anas Ibn Malik (may Allah be please with him) once missed the prayer in Basrah, so he gathered his household family and offered two rakats. No Khutbah mentioned hin narration. The fatwa also came out about khutbah and Allah knows best. Below are the details.

Eid Prayer at home guide – How to Pray?

The most important thing is to follow the same practice which you followed in the past. This means getting ready and praying at the correct time.
