Worshiping Allaah The Night Before ‘Eid Is A Biddah, By Sh. Mashhoor Hasan Aal Salmaan


Many Khutabah and callers unto Allāh (swt) recommend people and urge them to seek Allāh’s (swt) closeness through spending the night preceding the two Eids doing acts of worship. They, however, depend on no authentic proof. These so called “Shaikhs” even ascribe this recommendation to the Prophet (saw) to have said: ‘Whoever spends the night preceding the two Eid days doing acts of worship, his/her heart will never die on the day when all hears will die’.(1)

This hadīth is forged and should never be ascribed to the Prophet (saw) and hence the prohibition of applying it and calling people for it.
