Cast their outer garments over their persons O Prophet!

And Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Is it compulsory to do ghusl on Eid?
The best way to feel fresh for Eid is to perform ghusl before going out to pray. It’s understood that it’s better to do ghusl after Fajr, but before Fajr is acceptable too. Unlike on Eid Al-Fitr, you should eat after the Eid prayer on Eid Al-Adha.
Is it haram to wear shorts above the knee?
The majority opinion is that the awrah of men is from the navel to the knees. Therefore, in public, men must cover, at a minimum, the navel to the knees. So if the shorts are above the knees, it would be haram for a man to wear them in public according to the majority interpretation.
Is it haram to work on Eid day?

Why do we celebrate Eid?
