The `Eid Prayer consists of two rak`ahs (units of the Prayer). In the first rak`ah, one makes Takbir (saying Allahu Akbar [i.e. Allah is the Greatest]) seven times other than the opening Takbir. In the second rak`ah, one makes Takbir five times other than the Takbir of standing.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “There are seven Takbirs in the first rak`ah and five Takbirs in the second rak`ah of the prayer offered on the day of the breaking the fast and then recitation of the Qur’an after the opening Takbirs.” (Abu Dawud)
