3 Days After Eid

واذكر الله في ايام معدودات البقرة ٢٠٣

Ibn ‘Umar (ra) said this is referring to the days of tashreeq , 3 days after Eid.

The Prophet (saw) said in Muslim, these are days for eating, drinking and remembering Allah.

A scholar of the past explains that remembering Allah means a number of things:

  • At the end of the prescribed prayers with the takbeer which you hear at the end of prayers.
  • Some of them said it’s the takbeer of doing the sacrifice of the animal which extends to 2 of the 3 days of Tashreeq according to the Sahaaba.
  • Remembering Allah with eating and drinking, for verily Allah Loves the slave who after every mouthful praises him and after a sip of drink, praises Him as the narration mentions.

The following is general dhikr and some of the people of the past mentioned saying the du’a:

ربنا آتنا في الدنيا حسنة و في الآخرة حسنة و قنا عذاب النار

Hassan said this du’a means ilm and Ibaadah in the dunya and Jannah in the next life.
