Is it permissible for a person who goes to the Eid prayers to pray two Rak’ahs for Tahiyyat al-Masjid in the prayer-place?
Praise be to Allaah.
A person who enters the prayer place to pray the Eid prayer should not pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid before sitting down, because doing this is different to the way the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) used to do things.
And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.
