Comprised of the last thirty-seven chapters of the Holy Quran, the 30th juz is the initial part of the Quran that Muslims usually memorize and learn.

ITIKAF 2022

Shaykh Husain A. Sattar
Ramadan 2022
Friday, April 22nd (Maghrib) to Sunday, May 1st (Maghrib) [tentative]

Sacred Learning Center

Shaykh Husain A. Sattar
Ramadan 2022
Friday, April 22nd (Maghrib) to Sunday, May 1st (Maghrib) [tentative]

Sacred Learning Center

Itikaf involves secluding oneself in the masjid during the last 10 days and nights of Ramadan, as was the annual habit of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). During this time, attendees devote themselves to worship and learning, seeking forgiveness for past shortcomings, and searching for Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power), which is a night of worship more valuable than a thousand months.

The itikaf begins on the 21st night of Ramadan and continues until its end. The Prophetic sunnah is to remain in the masjid during the entire 10-day period; however, shorter stays can also be beneficial. In order to ensure the best possible experience for our attendees, we limit attendance to 75 individuals on any given night. Preference is given to those who commit to spending the entire 10 days, and then 9 days, and then 8 days, etc., until our maximum limit is reached.

This program is for brothers only. Sisters are encouraged to perform itikaf in a prayer area of their homes – spending as much time as possible engaged in worship, learning, and reflection.

Cost: Free of Charge

Topic for Ramadan 2022: Tafsir of a selection of the Holy Quran
