ITIKAF (RAMADAN RETREAT) 2024
Refresh spiritually and reach new heights in your faith
Itikaf involves secluding oneself in the masjid during the last ten days and nights of Ramadan, as was the annual practice of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) and his Companions (Allah be pleased with them). During this time, attendees devote themselves to worship, 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. To ensure a comfortable experience and to preserve the spiritual aims of itikaf, this program is limited to eighty (80) participants and is only open to brothers performing the full 10-day Sunnah itikaf.* Register today to experience the life-changing nature of these special nights and days!
*Participants joining from out-of-town may choose to depart on the 29th of Ramadan, if desired, to ensure reaching home in time for Eid. Sisters are encouraged to perform itikaf in the prayer area of their home.
Sunday, March 31st 2024* to the night before Eid (last 10 days of Ramadan, beginning on the 21st night). *depending on moon sighting
