Method of Offering Eid Salah?

Method of offering Eid Prayers:
According to Hanafi method of offering Eid Prayer is that
First make the following intention: (I intend to offer two Rakāt Ṣalah of Eid-ul-Fiṭr with six additional Takbīrāt, for the sake of Allah, following this Imam.’ Having made the intention, raise the hands up to the ears, utter اَللّٰهُ اَكۡبَر and then fold the hands below the navel and recite the Sanā. Then raise your hands to your ears, utter اَللّٰهُ اَكۡبَر and leave them at the sides; then raise the hands to the ears again, utter اَللّٰهُ اَكۡبَر and leave them at the sides; then raise the hands to the ears once again, utter اَللّٰهُ اَكۡبَر and fold them. In short, the hands will be folded after the first and fourth Takbīr, whereas they will be left at the sides after the second and third Takbīr. In other words, the hands will be folded when something is to be recited in Qiyām after Takbīr, while they will be left at the sides when nothing is to be recited. Then, the Imām will recite Ta’awwuż and Tasmiyaĥ in a low voice, and Sūraĥ Al-Fātiḥaĥ and another Sūraĥ aloud. Thereafter, he will perform Rukū’. In the second Rak’at, the Imām will first recite Sūraĥ Al-Fātiḥaĥ and another Sūraĥ aloud. (Durr-e-Mukhtār, Rad-dul-Muḥtār, vol. 3, pp. 66)

After the recitation, said three Takbīrāt raising the hands to the ears each time and leaving them at the sides. Then, performpath and would return from another’. (Jāmi’ Tirmiżī, vol. 2, pp. 69, Ḥadīš 541)
The above mention method of offering Eid prayer is correct and as per the method of Hanafi.
