Eid al-Adha Takbir Rituals : Lyrics and Meaning of Allahu Akbar – Takbīr

The Takbīr or Tekbir (تَكْبِير) is the Arabic term for the phrase Allāhu Akbar (الله أكبر) which literally means “God is greater” and that nothing can supersede God or be better than Him.

Allahoakbar - Takbir - God is Great - Allah is the Greatest

This phrase is recited by Muslims in many different situations. For example, when they are very happy, to express approval, to praise a speaker, or as a battle cry, during times of extreme stress.

The phrase is also said during each stage of both obligatory prayers (performed five times a day), and supererogatory prayers (performed at will).
