Takbīrāt al-Tashrīq During the Days of Dhū ’l-Ḥijjah

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْد

Allāhu Akbar Allāhu Akbar, Lā ilāha illallāhu Wallāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar Wa Lillāhi ’l-Ḥamd

It is wājib (compulsory) to recite the above Takbīrāt at-Tashrīq after the farḍ ṣalāh (after making salām) during the days of ḥajj.

Starting from the Fajr ṣalāh of the 9th of Dhū ’l-Ḥijjah & ending after the ʿAṣr ṣalāh of the 13th of Dhū ’l-Ḥijjah. 

The takbīr has to be recited whether one is a traveller, a resident, one performing ṣalāh in congregation or the one performing ṣalāh by himself.

The takbīr is wājib for males & females alike. Males shall recite the takbīr audibly whilst the females will recite it quietly. It is makrūh (disliked/discouraged) for females to recite it aloud like the men.

If one forgets to recite the takbīr after salām, but has not yet engaged in anything contrary to ṣalāh (i.e. walking, talking etc.), then he should recite it immediately. Otherwise, he should make istighfār (i.e. seek Allāh’s forgiveness).
