[Q/A] Specifying a Particular Day for I’tikaaf



Question:
Is it permissible for one who wishes to perform the i’tikaaf to specify a particular day itself for i’tikaaf?

Response: It is not for him to specify a particular day itself within which to regularly perform i’tikaaf, rather, he should take care to perform i’tikaaf in the last ten (days and nights) of Ramadhaan in accordance with (the guidance of) the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam).

And with Allaah lies all success, and may Allaah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and his family and his companions.
