An excerpt taken from the Chapter: Extending ‘Eid Greetings
"Some people—May Allāh grant them rightness—extend the ‘Eid greetings a day or more before, or on the night of the ‘Eid. However, what has been narrated from the Righteous Predecessors is that they would extend ‘Eid greetings on the day of the ‘Eid, and there is no doubt that their practice is that which is most beloved to all."
