Answered by: Imam Abdul-Malik Sheikh




Is it permissible to pray Eid twice? For those who are stewards at the masjid for both Eid Namaz?




In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful





Salat al-Eid is wajib on everyone who is required to pray Jum’ah. It is only required once and the scholars say it is disliked to pray any Nafl prayer after the Eid prayer.


Therefore in answer to your question, you should not pray the Eid prayer twice if you have already prayed it once, even if you are a steward in the Masjid.
