    A forgotten sunnah of ‘Eed: Praying Two Rak’ah after returning from the ‘Eed prayer [1]

    Aboo Sa’eed al-Khudree (رضى الله تعالى عنه) said: “The Messenger of Allaah ( صلى الله عليه و سلم) used to not pray anything before the ‘Eed (prayer), then when he returned to his home he prayed two rak’ah.”
    It was collected by Ibn Maajah [2] and declared hasan by Shaykh al-Albaanee, Ahmad in "al-Musnad" [3], Aboo Ya’laa [4] and Ibn Khuzaymah [5], and he brought a chapter heading: “Chapter: The desirability of praying in the home after returning from the Musallaa.”

    And Shaykh al-Albaanee declared it hasan in “al-Irwaa’” [6] and he said:
    “And the reconciliation between this hadeeth and the ahaadeeth that have preceded, negating salaah after the ‘Eed (prayer) [7] is that the negation only covered salaah in the Musallaa, just as al-Haafidh (Ibn Hajar) stated in “at-Talkhees” [8], and Allaah knows best.”

    And it was reported by al-Haakim [9] who said: “This is a precious Sunnah, by an isnaad (chain) that is saheeh and they (al-Bukhaaree and Muslim) did not collect it.” And al-Haafidh declared in hasan in “al-Fath” [10] and in “Buloogh al-Maraam” [11].
