Consequences of Improper Aitikaf Practice


If the sister in aitikaf did the ghusal in the bathroom which is not attached to the room and is downstairs and she did the ghusl just for jumma to freshen up. What will happen to her aitikaf now? She did this because she misunderstood the fatwa.


Her aitikaf became invalid and it is Wajib to do its Qadha (make up) for only one day aitikaf.

Method of Qadha: Before sunset enter your masjid e bayat start aitikaf with intention of aitikaf, keep fast of the next day and when the sun sets of that day, Qadha of your atiqaaf is completed.

Note: It is easy to do your Qadha in Ramadan as the fast of Ramadan will suffice. And after completion of one day Qadha aitikaf it is better to continue this aitikaf as nafil aitikaf till end of Ramadan.
