Eid-ul-Fitr prayer consists of two rak'ah in congregation.  After the niyah:

 

            "Navaiytu-an Usalli Rak'aatil Wajibi  Salaatha Eid il Fitr Ma'a

 

Takbeerathi-Wajibah"

 

The Imam and the followers say Allahu Akbar and fold hands just as in any other

 

Prayer and recite quietly  thana,

 

            Subhaanaka Allahumma Wabi Hamdika Wa Tha Baarakasmuka

 

            Wa Tha 'Aala Jadduka, Wa Laa Ilaaha Ghairuk

 

Then the congregation says Allahu Akbar Seven times. Everytime raising hands to the

 

ears and dropping them except the last time hands are folded and then the Imam

 

Recites  Surah-e-Fatiha and another Surah. Then the congregation performs ruku

 

and Sajuud as in other prayers.  This completes the first rak'ah.

 

 During the second rak'ah, after the congregation rises up from the first rak'ah

 

and folds hands, then the Imam says five takbirat, followed by the congregation,

 

every time raising the hands to the ears and dropping them except the last

 

time when the hands are folded.  The Imam recites Surah-e-Fatiha and another

 

Surah and the second ruku and sajuud  are performed as in other prayers.

 

 

After the Eid prayer is completed, there is a Khutbah, or Sermon.
