The Musallah (Eid Gah)

The performing of the Eid salâh in an open field on the outskirts of the town or city, is Sunnah Muakkadah (greatly stressed upon sunnah). According to the verdict of many senior Muftis, in big cities or towns, the sunnah will (Insha Allah) be fulfilled even by reading in a field or open plain within the city. However, for the benefit of the sick, weak and other "ma'zoor" persons (people with valid Shar'i reasons), arrangements can be made to perform Eid Salâh in the masjid.

Similarly, due to rain also, the Eid Salâh can be read in the masjid. However, to fulfill the Sunnah Muakkadah act of performing Eid Salâh at the Musallâ (Eid Gâh) in favourable weather, normal and healthy people should give importance to proceeding to the Musallâ (Eid Gâh). The habit of performing the Eid Salâh in the Masjid is not a good habit. Despite the great virtue of the blessed Masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam - Masjid-un-Nabawi - Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam and the Khulafa - Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali Radiallahu anhum left this masjid on the occasion of Eid and always proceeded to the Musallâ (Eid Gâh) for the Eid salâh. For more details on this subject refer to the book, "The Sunnah of the Musallâ" by Hazrat Moulânâ Fazlur Rahman Saheb.
