Everything You Need to Know About Takbeer Tashreeq

Every year, millions of pilgrims and over a billion Muslims recite a declaration of faith known as the Takbeer Tashreeq. But as this moment comes only once a year, it can be easy to forget the details surrounding how one should recite it and when it should be recited.

Below we’ve outlined everything you need to know about the Takbeer Tashreeq

When Do We Recite It?

The recitation of the Takbeer Tashreeq commences after the Fardh of the Fajr prayers on the 9th of Dhul Hijjah which is also known as the day of ‘Arafah. The Takbeer should then be recited after every Fardh prayer until the ‘Asr prayer on the 13th of Dhul Hijjah. This means that the Takbeer will be recited after a total of 23 prayers.

Is It Obligatory To Recite?

Yes, it is wajib (necessary) on all Muslims, whether they pray individually or in a congregation (jama’at). However, men should recite audibly whilst women should recite softly.

What If I Forget To Recite It?

If one forgets to recite the Takbeer Tashreeq, it must be recited when one remembers. However, this is only the case if one has not engaged in any act which would otherwise invalidate the prayer such as conversing with others or leaving the prayer space. If this happens, the obligation is missed and it is highly recommended that one does Istighfar (repents). 

How Many Times Do I Recite It?

The Takbeer Tashreeq is only to be recited once after each of the 23 Fardh prayers. If one chooses to recite it more than once, there is no harm in doing so.

What Is The Takbeer Tashreeq?

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْدُ

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illa Allah

Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, wa lillahil Hamd

Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest. There is no deity worthy of worship but Allah.

And Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest and to Allah belongs all praise.
