ITIKAF

(1) And (remember) when We made the House (the Kabah at Makkah) a place of resort for mankind and a place of safety. And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham) (or the stone on which Ibrahim (Abraham) stood while he was building the Kabah) as a place of prayer (for some of your prayers, e.g. two Rakat after the Tawaf of the Kabah at Makkah), and We commanded Ibrahim (Abraham) and Ismail (Ishmael) that they should purify My House (the Kabah at Makkah) for those who are circumambulating it, or staying (itikaf), or bowing or prostrating themselves (there, in prayer).
( ???? ?????? , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #125)

(2) It is made lawful for you to have sexual relations with your wives on the night of As-Saum (the fasts). They are Leebas (i.e. body cover, or screen, or Sakan, (i.e. you enjoy the pleasure of living with her - as in Verse 7:189) Tafsir At-Tabaree), for you and you are the same for them. Allah knows that you used to deceive yourselves, so He turned to you (accepted your repentance) and forgave you. So now have sexual relations with them and seek that which Allah has ordained for you (offspring), and eat and drink until the white thread (light) of dawn appears to you distinct from the black thread (darkness of night), then complete your Saum (fast) till the nightfall. And do not have sexual relations with them (your wives) while you are in itikaf (i.e. confining oneself in a mosque for prayers and invocations leaving the worldly activities) in the mosques. These are the limits (set) by Allah, so approach them not. Thus does Allah make clear His Ayat (proofs, evidences, less!
ons,
signs, revelations, verses, laws, legal and illegal things, Allahs set limits, orders, etc.) to mankind that they may become Al-Muttaqoon (the pious - see V.2:2).
( ???? ?????? , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #187)

(6) Narrated 'Aisha: Allah's Apostle used to practice itikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, 'Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan ,' (Book #32, Hadith #237) Bukhari

(25) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet used to perform itikaf every year in the month of Ramadan for ten days, and when it was the year of his death, he stayed in itikaf for twenty days. (Book #33, Hadith #260) Burkhari

May Allah forgive our 1st sin and last sin, our minor sins and major sins, our hidden sins and our public sins, and purify us with the blessings of this holy month that is nearing its end
