Do not forget to start reading Takbeer e Tashreeq!

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi t3ala wa barakatuhu,

It is obligatory on each muslim to recite the Takbir ut Tashreeq after every Fardh prayer starting from the Fajr of the 9th Zul hijjah, until the Asar prayer of the 13th,

This is the takbeer:

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,

La Ilaha Illallahu, 

Wallahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar

wa lillahil hamd.

(There is no god but Allah and Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest and to Allah belongs all praise.)

According to authentic Islamic sources, it is obligatory on each Muslim, to recite this Takbir after every Fard Salah. For women also, it is commendable though not obligatory. Whether you are performing Salah with Jama'ah (collectively) or on your own (individually) makes no difference. You must recite the Takbir. However, male Muslims should recite it in a loud voice, while females should recite it in a low voice.

The origin of this takbeer:

When Ibrahim (AS) began moving the knife on his beloved son, Ismaeel (AS), the angels sent by Allah with a ram exclaimed. 
"Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar" (Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest). 
Ibrahim alaihissalam heard the voice of the angels and replied, 
"La illah illa Allahu Wallahu akbar"
(There is no god besides Allah, and Allah is the greatest). 
His son Ismaeel (AS) heard this conversation and understood that Allah had relieved him from this great rial, thus he replied, 
"Allahu Akbar Walillahil hamd" (Allah is the greatest, and to Allah belongs all praise)
