Takbeer – e – Tashreeq

As we enter into the days of Hajj soon, I thought it would be quite a good idea for many of us, ladies, to make ourselves a reminder, to remember to read the Takbeer – e – Tashreeq, which is Waajib to read, after every Fardh Salaah, as well as the Eid Salaah.

We only need to recite it once.

You could post a reminder on your phone, or use a sticky note, or use a ribbon pinned to your Musallah at home, as a reminder.

Below are some questions that are answered by Mufti Zakaria Makada, and checked by Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Isipingo Beach).


*Q:* What are the laws pertaining to Takbeer-e-Tashreeq…?

*A:* The relevant masaail pertaining to Takbeer-e-Tashreeq are as follows:

*1. Q:* What is the position of Takbeer-e-Tashreeq in Deen?
