Is it permissible for a person who goes to the Eid prayers to pray two Rak’ahs for Tahiyyat al-Masjid in the prayer-place?

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
It has been proven that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) went out to pray the Eid prayers in the prayer-place [not the regular mosque, but a place designated for Eid prayers], and men and women alike went out to pray with him. All of the Sahaabah continued to do likewise after he died. Is it permissible for a person who goes to the Eid prayers to pray two Rak’ahs for Tahiyyat al-Masjid in the prayer-place or not?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

A person who enters the prayer place to pray the Eid prayer should not pray Tahiyyat al-Masjid before sitting down, because doing this is different to the way the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) used to do things.

And Allaah is the source of strength. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

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.
