1. Question: What is the verdict for Ghusl on Eid day ?
Answer : There isn’t anything authentic narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) made Ghusl on Eid day. However there is no harm if a person does it for cleanliness. It has been reported that Ibn Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) made Ghusl on this day.
2. Question : Are there two Khutub on the Eid or only one ?
Answer : There is only one Khutub for the Eid for the men. This is what the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did. If the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did two, it would have reached us through authentic narrators. There isn’t anything authentic which states he made two khutub on the Eid. It has been mentioned in Saheeh Muslim that he (peace and blessings be upon him) performed one khutbah.
