Praise be to Allaah.
narrated that Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:
On the day of Eid, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) would vary his route, i.e., he would go via one route and come back via
a different route.
This hadeeth indicates that it is mustahabb to come back via
a different route from Eid prayer.
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa
It is prescribed for the one who goes out to the Eid prayer
to go via one route and to come back via another route, following the
example of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him). This Sunnah does not apply to any other prayer, Jumu’ah or
otherwise, rather it applies only to Eid. Some scholars said that this is
prescribed for Jumu’ah prayer too, but the basic principle is that with
regard to every action for which there was a reason at the time of the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) but he did not do
it, taking that as an act of worship is a form of bid’ah (innovation).
