Before/After the Eid Prayer

1. Eat before the Eid Prayer:

Anas (radiAllahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alayhi wasallam) would not set out in the morning of Eid ul Fitr until he had eaten some dates(Bukhari)


2. Bathing before the Eid Prayer:

There is no "authentically reported" sunnah from the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) according to "The Rulings Concerning the Two Eids."

However, it is preferred and it is a sunnah of the Companions (that is, their way and guidance).."ibn Umar (radia Allahu anhumaa) used to bathe on the day of Fitr." ("The Rulings Concerning the Two Eids" by Shaykh Abul Haarith 'Alee Hasan 'Alee Abdul Hameed)



3. Going to the Musalla, Returning a different way
 

"When it was the day of Eid, the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) use to alter his route (of returning). (Bukhari)

Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim al Jaqzeeyah said:

"The Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi was sallam) used to change his route on the days of Eid, such that he went by one route and returned by another. It is said (he did this)to give salaam upon the people of both routes. Or so that both groups get some of his blessings. Or so that anybody who has a need can take care of it. Or to make manifest the ritual of Islaam....("The Rulings Concerning the Two Eids" by Shaykh Abul Haarith 'Alee Hasan 'Alee Abdul Hameed)
