Meaning of I’tikaf

“The original meaning of i’tikāf was to devote oneself and focus oneself on something to the exclusion of everything else. Ramaḍān is a form of iʿtikāf for the entire month.

We should treat the whole of ramadan as a spiritual retreat where we devote ourselves to, and focus on, the ibaadah of Allah to the exclusion of everything else.”

Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq
