Uthaimeen Asked When I’tikaaf Starts?

August 8, 2012 § Leave a comment

Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked when i’tikaaf starts so he replied, “The majority of the people of knowledge are of the opinion that it starts from the night of the twenty-first and not from fajr of the twenty-first, even though some scholars held the view that it starts from fajr of the twenty-first using the hadith of Aishah as proof, ‘So when he prayed the morning prayer he entered his place of i’tikaaf,’ but the majority [of the people of knowledge] answered that by saying that the Prophet عليه الصلاة السلام withdrew himself from the people in the morning but that the intention for i’tikaaf was from the start of the night.”

Fataawaz-Zakaati was-Siyaam, p. 855.
