Muslimpress:Beside the daily prayers that Muslims offer, they also offer special prayers in special occasions such as Eid, which is the birth time or any other happy time of the year, such as the Fitr Eid, that is the celebration after the holy month of Ramadan. Eid prayer is fard kifaayah (a communal obligation); if enough people undertake it, the rest are absolved of sin. In the scenario mentioned in the question, the obligatory duty had been discharged by those who prayed first – those to whom the imam was delivering the khutbah. For those who missed it and want to make it up, it is mustahabb (rewardworthy) for them to do so, so they should pray it without a khutbah (speech) afterwards. This was the view of Imam Maalik, al-Shaafa’i, Ahmad, al-Nakha’i and other scholars. The basic principle concerning that is the words of the Prophet (PBUH): “When you come to the prayer, walk in a tranquil and dignified manner, and whatever you catch up with, pray, and whatever you miss, make it up.” It was narrated from Anas that if he missed the Eid prayer with the imam, he would gather his family and freed slaves, then his freed slave ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Abi ‘Utbah would stand up and lead them in praying two rak’ahs in which he would say the takbirs. The one who reaches the Eid prayers whilst the imam is delivering the khutbah should listen to the khutbah, and then he should make up the prayer after that, so that he may achieve two good things.
