    Default Question about Itikaaf

    Bros and sis i want to know that can someone perform the Itikaaf in the local mosque ( Five time prayers, but no jummah prayer). so that he would go to main mosque in order to offer jummah prayer. Plus Can anybody tell me any link to a Guide of Itikaaf procedures (urdu, english)

    I’tikāf

    1) I’tikāf means: to remain in the Musjid with the intention of I’tikāf. One may only leave the Musjid to fulfil those needs that cannot be fulfilled inside the Musjid, e.g. to go to the toilet, to make Wudū, to take a wājib ghusl (obligatory bath) etc.

    2) It is “sunnah muakkidah ‘alal kifāyah to observe I’tikāf during the last 10 nights of Ramadān. i.e. if in a town or village no one observes I’tikāf, the sin of abandoning this sunnah will be upon the entire community. And if one person observes I’tikāf, the rest of the community will be absolved.

    3) It is not necessary for one to remain quiet throughout the period of I’tikāf.

    Rather it is makrūh to do so. One should speak of good things and abstain from arguments and futile talks.

    4) There is no specific form of ‘ibādah (worship) to be observed during I’tikāf. One could occupy oneself with salāh, dhikr (remembrance) of Allāh Ta’ala, reciting the Holy Qurān, studying or teaching the knowledge of Deen or any other form of ‘ibādah (worship).

    5) If Jumu’ah salāh does not take place at that Musjid wherein one is observing I’tikāf, then one may leave that Musjid to attend the Jumu’ah salāh at another Musjid. One should calculate the amount of time in which one could reach that Musjid, perform the sunnah and listen to the khutbah. If one delays a while in that Musjid, no harm will be caused to the I’tikāf.

    6) If for no valid reason one leaves the Musjid even for a little while, intentionally or unintentionally, the I’tikāf will be broken and he will have to make qadā.

    7) If one intends to observe I’tikāf during the last 10 nights of Ramadān, he should be in the Musjid from before sunset on the 20th of Ramadān up to the sighting of the moon of ‘Eid. Thereafter the ‘I’tikāf ends.

    8) It is not permissible for one to leave the Musjid just to have a bath on a Friday or for the purpose of cooling oneself.

    its 20th roza and the begining of 21st.

    Bahishti Zewar also mentions..

    "Before the end of the 20th day of Ramadhān until the moon of eid ul-fitr is sighted, the act of sitting at the place where one offers one's salāh at home and engaging in ibādah is known as i'tikāf. There is great reward in this i'tikāf. Once a woman commences with i'tikāf, she can only leave that place for the purpose of relieving herself or for the purpose of food and drink. If there is someone who could bring the food and drink, she cannot leave that place even for the purpose of food and drink. She should remain in that place all the time and sleep there as well. It is preferable not to remain idle. Instead, she should occupy herself in the recitation of the Quran, offering nafl salāhs, engaging in the remembrance of Allāh Ta'āla, etc. If a woman experiences haid or nifās, she should abandon her i'tikāf. I'tikāf in such a state is not permissible. While in a state of i'tikāf, it is not permissible for a woman to have intercourse with her husband, to sleep with him, cuddle or fondle him, etc."

    As for the laptop.. technically it will be permissible but if it will lead you to waste time then it is best suggested not to keep anything that will make you want to stop your quran recitation and ibadah..
