What should one do if the imam forgets some of the takbirat of Eid?


Someone requested Huzooraa for guidance on… offering sujood al-sahw [prostrations made after committing a mistake in Salat] to compensate for forgetting to pronounce takbirat at the beginning of a rak‘ah. Huzooraa, in his letter dated 21 November 2017, gave the following reply:

“As far as the issue of an imam forgetting the takbirat is concerned, the people praying behind him should remind him in such a case. However, if the imam fails to pronounce some of the takbirat despite their reminder, then those behind him should observe the Eid prayer according to the imam. There is no need for the imam to perform sujood al-sahw if he forgets the takbirat.”
