Description of Eid prayer and it's Sunnahs

The following is how the Eid prayer will be performed tomorrow

• The Eid prayer is 2 units(rak’at) followed by a Khutbah (sermon)

• It starts with the first takbeer (raising hands to ear and then folding them with each AllahuAkbar)

• Then there will be 7 takbeers (as described in #2), these are besides the Takbeerat alIhram(takbeer to start the prayer). The takbeer (AllahuAkbar) should not be repeated out loud by the congregation, but only said out loud by the Imam/Prayer leader.
