(20) Eid–ul-Adha is like Eid-ul-Fitr in every sense except for that in Eid-ul-Adha it is desirable not to eat anything before prayer, whether he wants to give sacrifice or not, and if he ate before then there is no harm.

(21) While going for Eid-ul-Fitr prayer on the way one should slowly say “Takbeer”. And while going for Eid-ul-Adha one should say the “Takbeer” loudly on the way. The following is called “Takbeer”:

"Allah is most great. Allah is most great. There is no one else worth Worshipping except for Allah and Allah is most great. Allah is most Great and all the praise is for Allah."
