My brothers & sisters in Islam,
As-Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah.
I ask Allah that you are all in the best of your health and emaan.
As of tonight insha’Allah, we’ll be starting Tahajjud (late night) prayer & E’tikaaf (sleepover) at Downtown Mosque. It is another real good opportunity to listen to pray and listen to the recitation of the Noble Quran.

Tahajjud (Late prayer) Starts at : 3:30 A.M. Ends at: 5:30 A.M.
5:30 SUHUR meal (please bring your own LIGHT meal)
6:00 Adhaan (Call for) Fajr prayer.
6:30 Fajr(Dawn) prayer
You may stay after Taraweeh prayer at the Mosque and observe Eti’kaaf (sleep over & seclusion in mosque for purpose of worshiping Allah) which is one of the traditional practices of the our beloved prophet (SAW).

Please refer to the TEXT included below, regarding the Importance of the last 10 Night of Ramadhan, Lailatul Qadr -Night of Decree, Itikaaf….etc.

may Allah grant us all, our parents and all family members protection and salvation from the Hellfire.

Your brother,
Sayed Masood

It is narrated the Prophet (SAW) upon the approach of the last ten ( night of Ramadan) he would tighten his waste (in preparedness for long standing in prayer), and awaken his family, and keep his night alive (Standing in Prayer to Allah).

. وعن عبد الملك بن أبي سليمان، عن سعيد بن جبير أنّه كان يختم القرآن في كل ليلتين ” طبقات ابن سعد (6/275)، حلية الأولياء (4/273)، سير أعلام النبلاء (4/325)
“narrated from Abdul-Malik son of Abi Suliman, from Sa’eed son of Jubair that he used conclude the recitation of the Whole Quran in 2 nights”
وقال سلام بن أبي مطيع: كان قتادة يختم القرآن في سبع، وإذا جاء رمضان ختم في كل ثلاثٍ، فإذا جاء العشر ختم كل ليلةٍ ” سير أعلام النبلاء (5/276)
” Salam son of Abi Muti’ said: Qatada used Conclude the recitation of the Quran every 7 nights, and when Ramadan comes he would conclude it (the Quran) every 3 nights, and if the ten(last ten nights of Ramadhan) came, he would conclude it every night”
وقال الربيع بن سليمان: كان الشافعي يختم القرآن في شهر رمضان ستين ختمة، وفي كل شهر ثلاثين ختمة ” سير أعلام النبلاء (10/36، 83)).

Rabi bin Suliman said:” Shafi’ee used to conclude the (recitation of) Quran in Ramadhan 60 times, and in every other month 30 time”

Meaning of Itikaaf:
Seclusion in a mosque, for the purpose of worshiping only. While in the state of Itikaaf, one should avoid sexual relation with the spouse and should not leave the mosque except for an urgent necessity.

فقوله تعالى: {وَلاَ تُبَـٰشِرُوهُنَّ وَأَنتُمْ عَـٰكِفُونَ فِي ٱلْمَسَـٰجِدِ} [ البقرة: 187 ].
قال السعدي: ” دلت الآية على مشروعية الاعتكاف ”
Allah (SWT) said ” And approach them(your wives) not for sexual relation while you are in E’tikaaf in Mosques” Albaqarah- 187 ”
عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يعتكف العشر الأواخر من رمضان( [2] )
narrated by Son of Omar may Allah be pleased with both of them, said:” The prophet (SAW) used do E’tikaaf in the last 10 nights of Ramadhan” Collected by BUKHARI & MUSLIM.
وعن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يعتكف العشر الأواخر من رمضان حتى توفاه الله تعالى، ثم اعتكف أزواجه من بعده( [3] ).
Narrated by Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her:” The prophet (SAW) used do E’tikaaf in the last 10 nights of Ramadhan until he passed away, then his wives conintued to observe Etikaaf after him” Collected by BUKHARI & MUSLIM.
ذهب جماهير أهل العلم إلى أن الاعتكاف سنة في حق النساء كما هو سنة في حق الرجال.

ومما استدلوا به: عموم أدلة مشروعية الاعتكاف ، فهي تشمل الرجل والمرأة الشابة.

وحديث عائشة رضي الله عنها، وفيه إذنه صلى الله عليه وسلم لعائشه وحفصة رضي الله عنهما أن يعتكفا معه ، وكانتا شابتين.

The Majority of the Scholars are in support of the opinion that Etikaaf is recommended for women as it is recommended for men.
They base this opinion on the proofs (Quranic or Hadith) and the fact that women are included in those proofs. So it is for men and women.
Also, in the Hadith narrated by Aisha (RA) and part of is that the propeht (SAW) gave his wives, Aisha & Hafsa (may Allah be pleased with them) permission to observe Etikaaf with him, and they they were young. (This Hadith was collected by Bukhari)
