Walking to Eid Prayer and Coming back by a Different Route


»Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: On the occasion of the Eid, that the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon Him) would proceed to the prayer place taking one route and returning from another.« ([1])


»Abu Hurairah (May Allah be Pleased with him) said: "When the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon Him) went to Eid Prayer, he would return through a different route." Al-Tirmidhi (May Allah have mercy on him) said: 'Some scholars prefer that if the Imam goes in a route for praying Eid, he should go back in a different route to follow this hadith. This is the saying of al-Shafa'i.'« ([2])
