      The Two ‘Īd Prayers
      Q 631: What kind of obligatory duties are the two ‘īd prayers in your opinion? What about Friday prayer?
      A: The two ‘īd prayers, i.e. ‘Īd of Fitr and ‘Īd of Aḍḥā are not obligatory; rather, they are mustaḥabb in the present period. However, Friday prayer is optionally obligatory.
      Q 632: Does any increase or decrease in the qunūt of ‘īd prayers make them invalid?
      A: Prayers are not invalidated by this if the meaning of increase or decrease is to elongate or shorten the qunūt itself. While if it means increases or decrease in the number of the qunūts, one should offer the ‘īd prayer as it is mentioned within the books of jurisprudence.
      Q 633: In the past, every imam of congregational prayers used to perform ‘Īd of Fitr prayers in his masjid. Is it permissible for imams of the masjids in the current period to hold the two ‘īd prayers?
      A: It is permissible to hold ‘īd prayers in congregation. It is notable that nowadays it is mustaḥabb.
      Q 634: Is there any qaḍā’ for the ‘Īd of Fiṭr prayer?
      A: It does not have any qaḍā’.
      Q 635: Does ‘Īd of Fiṭr prayer have any Iqāmah?
      A: It does not have any Iqāmah.
      Q 636: If an imam of Friday prayer recites Iqāmah for ‘Īd of Fiṭr prayer, what will be the rule of his prayers and that of others who are praying behind him?
      A: It harms neither the ‘Īd prayer of the imam nor those of the followers.
