by Abdullah bin Hamid Ali Imam al-Bukhari said in his Sahih in Kitab al-‘Idayn, Chapter 11, “Ibn ‘Umar and Abu Hurayra used to go out to the market place during the first 10 days , and they would recite the takbira, and the people recited the takbira with them…” Then he reports the following in Chapter 12,   “’Umar used recite the takbira in his tent in Mina. So the people in the masjid would hear him. Then, they’d recite the takbira, and then the people in the market places would recite the takbira until Mina was shaking with takbir. And Ibn ‘Umar would recite the takbira in Mina on those days , after the prescribed prayers, on his mat in his camping place, where he sat, and where he walked during all of those days. And Maymuna (the Prophet’s wife) used to recite the takbira on the Day of the Sacrifice. And the women used to recite the takbira behind Aban ibn ‘Uthman and ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd Al-‘Aziz during the days of immolation (tashriq) with the men inside the masjid.”
