I want to know if Takbeer is necessary for Farz Namaz. I offer my prayers individually sommetimes and offer Takbeer for Farz Namaz but I am not sure about saying Takbeer before Qaza farz. Hence currently I am saying Takbeer before Qaza Farz Namaz also. Is it a sin to say Takbeer before Qaza Farz?

Some body please guide me according Quran, Hadeeth and Sunnah.

May Allah bless Jannat for all Muslims.Ameen. Zulfi.

  • What do you mean by takbeer? You can't start a prayer without saying Allahu akbar.

Takbeer is the process of saying Allahu Akbar. Word كَبِير (kabīr) means great from the trilateral root k-b-r. The Arabic word أَكْبَر (ʾakbar) is the elative form (greatest). The opening takbeer is one of the pillars or essential parts of the prayer, without which a person’s prayer is invalid and he has not entered the prayer if he does not say it.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No person’s prayer is complete unless he does wudoo’ as it should be done and then says ‘Allaahu akbar.’” Al-Albaani said: It was narrated by al-Tabaraani with a saheeh isnaad. Ibn Qudaamah said: This is the view of the majority of scholars, past and present.

Al-Mughni, 2/126; see also al-Majmoo’, 3/175.

  • AssalamElaikum, @Riyaz, you mean Iqamah is necessary for Qaza Namaz also. I can't find specific answer in the link you posted but I think that hadith in that post covers the Qaza Namaz also. Commented Apr 30, 2022 at 4:48

    و عليكم السلام والرحمة الله وبركاته, please ignore the iqamah part. I have removed it from the answer
