The Virtues of
I’tikaf

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said:
“He who observes the ten days Itikaf during Ramadan will obtain the reward of two Hajj and two Umrah.”Bayhaqi

Abdullah bin Abbas (RA) reported that the Prophet (sallallahu Alaihi wasallam) said: “Whosoever for Allah’s sake did even one days i’tikaf, Allah would keep him away from Jahannam by trenches.” -Tabarani

Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, (about him who engages in i’tikaf), “that he is safe from sin and he also gets that reward which everyone (outside i’tikaf) gets for pious deeds.” – Ibn Majah

What an amazing opportunity for us to gain such immense and abundant rewards as well as closeness to Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala). We can also take this opportunity to strengthen and boost our imaan (faith) for the rest of the year.
