Itikaf 2019

As we get closer to the last 10 days of this blessed month, the opportunity to enter the Masjid as a Mu’takif for I’tikaf is now available.

What is I’tikaf?

“To confine oneself in a mosque for prayers, invocations and Ibadah, leaving the worldly activities for a limited number of days”

I’tikaf is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet ﷺ. It is related on the authority of our mother Ayesha (RA) that:

“The Apostle of Allah ﷺ observed I’tikaf in the last ten days of Ramadhan, until the end of his life. After his death, his wives continued with it.” – Bukhari and Muslim.

The purpose of I’tikaf is to seek a favourable environment in which one can get closer to Allah (SWT). This confinement and devotion distances preoccupations with worldly life; allowing one to attain inner composure, serenity and focus purely on the greater eternal reality. The aim being to reach a state of mind whereby all fears, hopes and apprehensions are superseded by love, devotion, and remembrance of Allah (SWT).

When will I’tikaf begin?

I’tikaf will begin at Maghrib on the night of 21st Ramadhan (26th May) insha’Allah.

Brothers wishing to perform I’tikaf at Glasgow Central Mosque should complete the I’tikaf 2018 Registration Form which can be downloaded here and must be submitted to the main office, 1 Mosque Avenue, Glasgow, G5 9TA. Alternatively, a hard copy is available from Glasgow Central Mosque.

Sisters can dedicate an area/room at home where they may remain for their I’tikaf.

May Allah (SWT) accept our fasting, prayers and worship during this blessed month.

Ramadhan Timetable

Alhamdulillah we are pleased to make available the 2019 Ramadhan timetable.
