Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Does the pilgrim have to offer the Eid prayer for Eid al-Adha?.

Praise be to Allaah.
The pilgrims do not have to offer the Eid prayer for Eid al-Adha, but any of them who do pray it will be rewarded.
And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
