We’re pleased to announce that this year we will be holding I’tikaf at our Masjids, please contact the local Imams for specific details for your masjid.
What is I’tikaf?
I’tikaf is to confine oneself to the Masjid to immerse themselves in prayer and Ibadah, leaving behind worldly activities for the last 10 days of Ramadan. I’tikaf is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet ﷺ. It is related by Ayesha (RA) that:
“The Apostle of Allah ﷺ observed I’tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan, until the end of his life. After his death, his wives continued with it” (Bukhari and Muslim).
The purpose of I’tikaf is to seek a favourable environment in which one can get closer to Allah. This confinement and devotion distances preoccupations with worldly life; allowing one to attain inner composure, serenity and focus purely on the greater eternal reality. The aim is to reach a state of mind whereby all fears, hopes and apprehensions are superseded by love, devotion, and remembrance of Allah.
When will I’tikaf begin?
I’tikaf will begin at Maghrib on Friday 22nd April Insha’Allah.
Brothers wishing to sit I’tikaf should arrive before Maghrib, please bring your own toiletries, sleeping bags etc, food will be provided daily.
Sisters can dedicate a room at home where they may remain for their I’tikaf.
