The Unrestricted Takbir

The transmitted wording of takbir is: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La Ilaha Illa Allah; Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, walillah Al Hamd” (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. There is no god but Allah; Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, and all praise is due to Allah).

There is also another version transmitted from Salman, (may Allah be pleased with him), who used to say: “Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Kabira” (Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Ever Greatest).

Then he followed this by sending blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). This version of Takbir is applicable at any time, however, it was not transmitted from the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) nor from any other righteous companions (may Allah be pleased with them).

There are two types of takbir in Dhul-Hijjah: unrestricted takbir and restricted takbir. Unrestricted takbir is applicable at any time or place, from the first of Dhul-Hijjah until the days of `Eid. Hence, a man can make takbir in the roads, markets, in Mina, and also when people meet each other. All these are occasions for unrestricted takbir.
