Sacred Learning Center
Itikaf involves secluding oneself in the masjid during the last 10 days of Ramadan. During this time, attendees devote themselves to worship of the Lord, seeking forgiveness for past shortcomings, learning about the din, and seeking Laylatul Qadr (the Night of Power), which is a night better than a 1000 months. Itikaf is so valuable that the Prophet (Allah’s peace and blessing be upon him) performed it annually during his time in Madinah.
The itikaf begins on the 21st night of Ramadan and continues until the end of Ramadan. The Prophetic sunnah is to remain in the masjid during the entire 10 day period; however, shorter stays can also be beneficial. The below registration allows expressing interest in joining itikaf at the Sacred Learning Center. In order to ensure the best possible experience for our attendees, we limit attendance to 150 individuals on any given night. Preference is first 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.
