Eid Salaah,

First, make the niyyah for the Eid salaah:

Nawaytu an usallee rakaatayil-waajibi salaata eidil-adhaa maaa takbeeraatin waajibatin

(I intend to pray 2 rakaaah of waajib Salaah of Eid-ul-Adha with the (extra) waajib takbeer.

The Eid Salaah has two raka’at performed in the normal way, with the only addition of six Takbirs, three of them in the beginning of the first raka’ah, and three of them just before ruku’ in the second raka’ah. The detailed way of performing the Eid salaah is as follows:

The Imam will begin the salaah without Adhan or iqamah. He will begin the Salaah by reciting Takbir of Tahrimah (Allahu Akbar). You should raise your hands up to the ears, and after reciting the Takbir, you should set your hands on your navel. The Imam will give a little pause during which you should recite Thana’ (Subhanakallahumma .:.). After the completion of Thana’, the Imam will recite Takbir (Allahu Akbar) three times. At the first two calls of Takbir you should raise your hands up to the ears, and after reciting Takbir (Allahu Akbar) in a low voice, should bring your hands down and leave them earthwards. But, after the third Takbir, you should set them on your navel as you do in the normal salaahs.

After these three Takbirs, the Imam will recite the Holy Qur’an, which you should listen calmly and quietly. The rest of the raka’ah will be performed in the normal way.

After rising for the second raka’ah, the Imam will begin the recitations from the Holy Qur’an during which you should remain calm and quiet. When the Imam finishes his recitation, he will recite three Takbirs once again, but this time it will be just before bowing down for ruku’. At each Takbir you should raise your hands up to the ears, and after saying ‘Allahu Akbar’, bring them down and leave them earthwards. After these three takbirs have been called and completed, the Imam will say another takbir for bowing down into the ruku’ position. At this takbir you need not raise your hands. You just bow down for your ruku’ saying, ‘Allahu Akbar’. The rest of the salaah will be performed in its usual way.

Israeli soldiers murder barehanded Palestinian woman in West Bank

An Israeli soldier aims his rifle at a woman said to be 19-year-old Palestinian student Hadeel al-Hashlamun, before she was shot and killed by Israeli troops, at an Israeli checkpoint in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron September 22, 2015.
An Israeli soldier aims his rifle at a woman said to be 19-year-old Palestinian student Hadeel al-Hashlamun, before she was shot and killed by Israeli troops, at an Israeli checkpoint in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron September 22, 2015.

A Palestinian woman succumbed to her injuries after being shot by Israeli troops earlier Tuesday, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency has reported.

An Israeli military spokesperson claimed that the woman had been shot at an army checkpoint in the West Bank city of Hebron after trying to stab an Israeli soldier.

Local residents, however, dispute the army’s claims that the woman identified as 18-year-old Hadeel Hashlmon had attacked a soldier.

“The soldiers wanted her to remove her niqab [Islamic face covering], but she refused,” Issa Amro, director of Youth Against Settlements, a Hebron-based Palestinian activist group, told Anadolu Agency.

“When she tried to leave the checkpoint, they shot her,” he added.

According to Amro, volunteers from the group witnessed the incident.

Earlier the same day, they released photos that appeared to show Israeli soldiers pointing guns at the woman and lying her injured body on the ground.

The incident follows the death of a Palestinian man on Monday night, who, the Israeli army alleged, had died when an explosive device he had intended to throw detonated prematurely.

The Ma’an news agency, however, quoted local officials as saying that the 21-year-old had been shot dead by Israeli troops.

Tension has recently run high in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, with a number of clashes erupting after groups of Jewish settlers forced their way into various Muslim holy sites, including East Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque complex.
