Salam masnoon, what is the sunnah way of hugging and greeting EID-UL-FITR to our brothers? JAZAKALLAHUKHAIRA.
Hugging and greeting immediately following the prayer of Eid is not an act of Sunnah but if it increases love and better feelings among Muslims then it would be permissible. Hugging can be done as it is done normally and the greeting of Eid may also be done in anyway in any language. One may use phrases like: Eid Mubarak or كل عام وأنتم بخير
And Allah knows best.
