بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Taqabbal Allaahu minna wa minkum (May Allaah accept this worship from us and from you)

To the best of our knowledge the blessed prophet(pbuh) never recited the above phrase after completion of the congregation prayer nor did the rightly guided khalifas.

Fiqh-us-Sunnah : Volume 2, Page 154a
Jabir ibn Nafir reports: "When the companions of the Prophet met each other on the day of 'id, they would say to each other, 'taqabbal minna wa minka [May Allah] accept it from us and you.'" Ibn Hajar said that its chain is hasan.

It is narrated that the companions of the blessed prophet (pbuh) used the above phrase on the occasion of eid to congratulate one another. It was a custom And the scholars like Imam Ahmad, Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah, Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen are of opinion that, there is absolutely no harm in congratulating one another on the occasion of eid with this phrase.

Imam Ahmad said: I do not initiate this greeting with anyone. But if someone greets me in this manner I return his greeting. That is because returning a greeting is obligatory, but initiating this greeting is not a Sunnah , but neither is it forbidden.

And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
