NAWAYTUL I`TIKFA MA DUMTU FIL MASJID

I intend making I'tikaf for Allah, the High,

What is Itikaaf?

Itikaaf is to remain in Masjid for particular days with the intention and purpose of Allah's worship and dedicating himself to Allah in devotion in form of Dua, Azkar, Namaz, Zikr.

Itikaaf is sunnat-e-Mu’akkadah and must be performed in mosque in the last 10 days of Ramadan.
[Hazrat Sheikh ‘Abd al-Haq “Muhaddith-e-Dehlwi in Ashi’ah al-Lam’at Vol. 2 Pg. 118]

This can by one person or by group of persons of the particular place. As this is sunnat-e-Mu’akkadah, neglecting it will be accountable to the whole place of area they belong. If even a single person performs Itikaaf, the this religious duty shall be fulfilled on behalf of everyone. This Itikaaf is Sunnat-e-Kifayah.

Who is Mu'takif?

A person performing Itikaaf is called as Mu'takif. The mu’takif smust devote himself  Allah prayers. Recite the Holy Qur’an, Read Hadiths Holy Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam, learn and gain Islamic knowledge.
(Fatawa-e-‘Alamgiri, Vol 1 Page 198)

Types of Itikaaf


1) Wajib: This is for the one who had made a mannat or vow or pledge of Itikaaf for the sake of Allah, if his wish is fulfilled. This is to be performed for 3 days with fasting in it.

2) Sunnat-e-Mu’akkadah: This is performed on the last 10 days of Holy month of Ramadan. The person must enter on the 20th of Ramadan before sunset, Make the intention or Niyaat of Itikaaf to stay for 10 days and leave on 30th of Ramadan, after the moon is sighted.


3) Mustabab or Sunnat-e-Ghair Mu’akkadah: This is Nafl Itikaaf performed at any time. Lets say you entered the masjid, make a intention or niyaat of Nafl Itikaaf. You will be rewarded till the time you are in Masjid. Fasting is not required in Mustahab Itikaaf

Conditions Of I'tikaf:

1. Niyyah: Intention.
2. Taharah: To be free from Hadathul Akbar for entry and all hadath
for acquisition of reward.
3. Sanity: i.e. a person should not be mad.

Things Permitted During I'tikaf:
1. Eating.
2. Sleeping.
3. Discussing matters of Deen or necessary talk.
NOTE: It is Makruh to observe complete silence as a form of Worship
this does not however permit worldly talk.

One Is Permitted To Leave The Masjid:
1. For wajib ghusl.
2. For wudhu.
3. To answer the call of nature (toilet).
NOTE: Leaving the Masjid without a Shar’i reason will nullify the I'tikaf.

3. Nafl Salaah and dhikr.
4. Salawat (Durud) and Istighfar.
5. Remembrance of Allah I.

6. Learn or teach the knowledge of Deen.

Reward Of I'tikaf
Ibn Abbas Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anha narrates Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him related ‘Whomsoever performs I'tikaf for a day: Allah I will spread three trenches between him (or her) and the fire of hell. The width of each trench being greater than the distance between the Heaven and earth.’

In addition: to perform I'tikaf of the last ten days of Ramadhan is equivalent to the reward of two Hajj and two Umrah!

Few Hadiths on Itikaaf


1) Hadrat ‘Ayeshah Siddiqah Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anha reported that the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him used to engage in I’tikaaf. i.e. private devotions in the mosque during the last ten nights of Ramadan till he met his Lord. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Page 271 - Sahih Muslim, Vol 1, Page 371]

2) Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala Anhu reported that the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessings be Upon Him used to engage in I’tikaaf in the mosque in the last ten days of Ramadan. But, one year he omitted the I’tikaaf so he engaged in I’tikaf during twenty nights the following year. [Sunan Abi Dawood, Vol 1, Page 334]

3) Baihaqi has reported on the authority of Hadrat Imam Husain that the Messenger of Allah has stated, “whosoever performs I’itikaf for ten days in the month of Ramadan, it is as though he has performed two ‘Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) and two Hajj (greater pilgrimage).”

Itikaaf for Women


Women can also perform Itikaaf at home by designating a part of their home, devoting self in Zikr, Namaz, Dua for Allah. Once you have made the intention of Itikaaf, you cannot take part in any household activities apart for your own requirement.

This is also performed for last 10 days of Ramadan, from 20th of Ramadan before sunset till 30th Ramadan till Moon Sighting. All the purity rules are applicable here also to the one performing Itikaaf

The Truth of Taraweeh 8 or 20 Rakat from Quran and Hadiths

The Truth of Taraweeh 8 or 20 Rakat from Quran and Hadiths

What is Taraweeh? How Many Rakats are there in Tarawih (Night Prayers of Ramadan)? How to Perform Taraweeh Salat? What is SALAT AL-TARAWEEH?




Watch this video to get all your answers by Renowed Islamic Scholar Hafiz Ehsan Qadri. This video will tell you the reality of How many rakats of Namaz (Taraweeh 8 or 20)  to pray? How to pray and How our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alaihi wa Salam Prayed.

Open challenge By Hafiz Ehsan Qadri of One Million if any one proves Taraweeh is of 8 Rakats

The One Million Rupee reward- Taraweeh 8 Rakath challenge by Hafiz Ehsan Qadiri

Rs 1 Million as reward for the one who proves THARAVEEH to be 8 Rakaths from the Hadees below

Sahih Bukhari, Book of TAHAJJUD, Hadees no 248

Narrated Abu Salma bin 'Abdur Rahman: I asked 'Aisha, "How is the prayer of Allah's Apostle during the month of Ramadan." She said, "Allah's Apostle never exceeded eleven Rakat in Ramadan or in other months; he used to offer four Rakat-- do not ask me about their beauty and length, then four Rakat, do not ask me about their beauty and length, and then three Rakat." Aisha further said, "I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Do you sleep before offering the Witr prayer?' He replied, 'O 'Aisha! My eyes sleep but my heart remains awake'!"

The explanation of the above Hadith

Tharaveeh changed to Night Prayer by the Wahabis/Salafis

Initially the Wahabis/Salafis tried to prove that Tharaveeh was 8 and not 20 by misquoting The Hadees of Syyida Aishah Siddeeqah (which is meant for Tahajjud and not Tharaveeh as it includes Ramazan and other Months as well)

Refer to the Hadees they quote

Sahih Bukhari, Book of TAHAJJUD, Hadees no 248

Narrated Abu Salma bin 'Abdur Rahman: I asked 'Aisha, "How is the prayer of Allah's Apostle during the month of Ramadan." She said, "Allah's Apostle never exceeded eleven Rakat in Ramadan or in other months; he used to offer four Rakat-- do not ask me about their beauty and length, then four Rakat, do not ask me about their beauty and length, and then three Rakat." Aisha further said, "I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Do you sleep before offering the Witr prayer?' He replied, 'O 'Aisha! My eyes sleep but my heart remains awake'!"

Some Points from the above Hadees

1. The Hadees is recorded by Imam Bukhari Alaihir Rahmah in the Chapter of Tahajjud, so to prove Tharaveeh from above is incorrect.

2. If this was for Tharaveeh, then they should offer Tharaveeh in the months other than Ramazan as well as mentioned in the above Hadees

3. They even cannot pray Tahajjud if they offer such lengthy Tharaveeh as mentioned in the above Hadees,

4. They should refrain wearing 3 quarter trousers, folding trousers upto the knee, praying without Turban or Cap because the Hadees talks about the beauty in Prayer and not like of ROWDIES

5. The Blessed Heart of Allah's Habeeb Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is always awake and engrossed in the remembrance of Allah Tha'ala and everything on the universe is apparent to The Most Beloved of Allah, Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

And now, they started saying there is nothing called Tharaveeh and its only Qiyam ul Layl (Night Prayer) when they were badly exposed by Our Sunni Ulama 

Dear Muslim brothers and sisters

Make sure to offer 20 Raka'aths as per The Established Sunnah and be away from such LAZY people

“So anyone of you who witnesses the month should spend it in fasting.”

Read about Ramadan Dua

2) Fasting is to make intention (Niyat) to fast from the break of dawn to sunset for the sake of Allah and to refrain from eating,  drinking or having sexual intercourse.

3) Fasting for the whole month of Ramadan is obligatory (Farz) for all muslims who have reached puberty. Its advised that, Children must also be told to keep fast, so that they are taught from earlier age. Without any genuine reason, not 
keeping fast is a Sin.




4) Fasting is also called Sawm 

Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which is the basis of Iman for the muslims. It is at number 3 position in the pillars list 

The Five Pilars of Islam are:

1) Shahadat (Faith)
2) Prayer (Namaz)
3) Roza (Fasting)
4) Zakat (Charity)
5) Hajj

5) The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) has said, “When Ramadan begins, the doors of heaven are opened.”

6) The main purpose of fast being made obligatory on a Muslim is not that one stays hungry and thirsty; but in fact the main purpose is to break the desire for lust, and to cool the fire of selfishness, so that the soul instead of being inclined towards the desires of lust, it becomes obedient towards the commands of The Almighty

7) Qaza is a must for a muslim, if he or she has not kept fasting for the day due to any valid reasons. 




8) Fasting is not only to stay away from food, its also the fast of how a Muslim behaves and shows his characteristics. Offensive acts during Fasting are

a) Backbiting, slander
b) To lie or deceive
c) To use abusive language
d) Not having iftar
e) Taste a food without swallowing it, using toothpaste.
f) Gargling water due to thirsts or hot weather.
g) Wrapping oneself with wet clothes.
h) Throwing up intentionally 
i) Weakening the body (e.g. strenuous sport) 
j) Gathering saliva and swallowing it;

Read Do's and Dont's of Fasting 

9) If a woman menstruates, she stops fasting and makes up [fasting for the days of menstruation].

10) Someone who lost consciousness in Ramadan does not make up the day on which the loss of consciousness occurred, but he makes up that which came after it.

11) If a traveler arrives, or a [menstruating] woman attains purity with part of the day [remaining], they abstain [from those things which invalidate fasting] for the rest of that day.

Kaffara (Penalty) for not fasting




12) Muslim must eat before the day breaks (Sehri) even when one is not hungry.

13) Wet dream, swallowing ones own saliva when still in the mouth, brushing teeth, smearing oil, ointment on unwounded body do not break fast. or used antimony [in his eyes].

14) In this month, many Muslims five chaity to the needy. It is called Zakat with is also a pillar of Islam.

Zakat is Farz and those who reject it as Farz are infidels and those who do not give Zakat are wrongdoers and worthy of execution and those who delay and do not give Zakat on time are sinners and their testimony or oath will not be accepted [Alamgiri,Bahar]. According to Shariat, Zakat is defined as from your goods to take one part for Allah which has been fixed by Shariat and to make a Muslim poor person the owner of it.



15) On completion of 1 Month of Fasting, Muslims celebrate the next as Eid. This is called Eid-ul-Fitr.

Eid is a day of celebration for Muslims, a day of happiness. On this day, Muslims perform two rakaats of prayer, meet one another, shake hands and embrace and give charity to the poor and needy. Islam teaches protecting the poor, helping the helpless, and easing the pain and sufferings of orphans and the meek at every turn, and they should not be forgotten, especially on the day of Eid. That is why Rasoolullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) ordered us to pay the Sadqa-e-Fitr before performing the Eid Salaah so that Muslims remember their poor brothers on this occasion and include them in their happiness.

16) The last 10 days of Ramadan has a special importance for Muslims. These days contains the Laylat Al Qadr or “Night of Power”. In this night the Holy Quran was revealed. On this night, Muslim stay awake the whole night in prayers.
