Praying Eid Salaah at the Musalla (an area of open flat ground) is the Sunnah


Aboo Sa'eed al-Khudree said: "The Messenger of Allah on the days of `Eid-ul-Fitr and `Adhaa, used to go out to the musallaa and the first thing that he would begin with was the prayer..." Reported by al-Bukhari (957), Muslim (889), and an-Nasaa'ee (3/187)

The renowned scholar ibn Haajee al-Maalikee said:"The past Sunnah with regards to the 'Eid prayer is that it should be performed at the musallaa. This is because the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi was salam) said: 'Prayer in my masjid is a thousand times better than prayer anywhere else except the Masjid-al-Haram.' (Bukhari & Muslim) Despite this great excellence he (sallallahu alayhi was salam) went out (to the musallaa) and left his masjid." (al-Madkhal (2/283)

Imaam ibn Qudaamah al-Maqdasee (al-Mughnee (2/229-230) said:"The sunnah is to pray the 'Eid prayer at a musallaa. 'Alee (may Allaah be pleased with him) ordered this and al-Awzaa'ee and the people of ra'y preferred this opinion. It is also the opinion of ibn Mundhir."

The Prophet (salallaahu 'alayhi wassallam) said:"Let the free women, the virgins, and the menstruating women go out to attend the 'Eed prayer, and witness the goodness and the supplications of the believers. As for the mentruating women, they should stay away from [praying on] the musallaa." - Bukhaaree
