In this article we will cover the Eid dua taqabbal which the companions of Allah’s Messenger used to say to each other for congratulations on Eid.
This comes from hadith which was narrated that Jubayr ibn Nufayr who said:
When the companions of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) met one another on the day of Eid, they would say to one another: “Taqabbal Allahu minna wa minkum”.
Al-Haafiz said: Its isnaad is hasan (meaning the chain of narration is good).
Offering congratulations in this way is acceptable , you could also say Eid mubarak. Imam Ahmad (may Allah have mercy on him) said: There is nothing wrong with one man saying to another on the day of Eid: Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa mink.
In Arabic The Eid Dua is written:
تَقَبَّلَ اللهُ مِنَّا وَمِنكُم
Transliteration: Taqaballahu minna wa minkum
Here are other common transliterations to help with pronunciation:
- Taqabbal allahu minna wa minkum
- Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum
- Taqabbal-Allâhu minnâ wa minkum
- Taqaballahu Minna Wa Minkum
Taqaballahu minna Translation:
The meaning behind this dua is “May Allah accept [good deeds] from you and us” or “May Allah accept [this worship] from you and us”.
Reply To Someone Who Says This:
The common reply to someone who says “Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum” to you is to respond back with the same, “Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum”. You can also say Ameen, or Khair mubarak to you.
If you’re reading this on Eid day, then Eid mubarak to you and your family. Hope you fill your bellies and have a day filled with laughter and joy. May Allah grant you and your family success and make you among the righteous.
