  2. what about i’tikaaf for women? can it be done at home? what about itikaaf for women with toddlers and infants, can they attend to their needs during itikaaf?

    • According to schools of thought:
      It is recommended for women to do i`tikaf (spiritual retreat) in a specific place in their house, a quiet room, for example, whenever they have the time and are able to do so without neglecting their family duties and other responsibilities.Even when in one’s monthly period, it is recommended in the Hanafi school to sit in a designated place of prayer (musalla) at home, after having made wudu, and make dhikr for the time it takes to pray.Read more here: http://seekersguidance.org/ans-blog/2009/08/14/the-spiritual-retreat-itikaf/

  3. i have a silly doubt to ask. what about those who study and go to school/college. we have to be productive and show efficiency there as well as reap the benefits of the last ten days. so can we study in between itikaf? or is that included as a worldly matter ?
