Assalaamu-alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
I’tikaaf is one of the confirmed Sunnahs which the Prophet ﷺ (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) did regularly. The i’tikaaf which the Prophet ﷺ always observed at the end of his life is i’tikaaf during the last ten days of Ramadaan.
These few days may indeed be regarded as an intensive course of spiritual education which brings immediate positive results in a person’s life during the days and nights of Ramadaan and in the coming days, until the next Ramadaan comes.
The basic goal of the Prophet’s i’tikaaf was to seek Laylat al-Qadr, and that is because of the great virtue of that night of which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “The Night of Al‑Qadr (Decree) is better than a thousand months (i.e. worshipping Allaah in that night is better than worshipping Him a thousand months, i.e. 83 years and 4 months)” [al-Qadr 97:3].
We encourage those who are able to perform this sunnah to do so and to make the best out of Ramadan along with it. The time for entering I’tikaaf is before the sun sets on the night of the twenty-first which corresponds to Thursday evening (June 15th) before Maghrib, inshaa’Allah.
