Performing Salah (Prayer) before

Q 2: It was authentically reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) went out (to an open area) to perform Salat-ul-`Eid (the Festival Prayer). Men and women went out along with the Prophet (peace be upon him). Is it permissible for those who go to perform Salat-ul-`Eid in a Musalla (a place for Prayer) to perform Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid (two-unit Prayer to salute the mosque)?

A: He who enters Musalla to perform Salat-ul-`Eid should not perform Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid before he sits. Performing Tahiyyat-ul-Masjid in Musalla contradicts what was performed by Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) and what was done by the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
