Does a person doing Itikhaf have to be fasting?



A person doesn’t have to be fasting in order to do Itikhaf. This is derived from the verse where Allah says, “While you are in I’tikâf (i.e. confining oneself in a mosque for prayers and invocations leaving the worldly activities) in the masjids.” [ Al-Baqarah 187 ]  “
