Itikaf Registration Form

Please not that the Mu'takif (the one who observes I'tikaaf) will enter the masjid before
sunset of the 20th day of Ramadan. The Mu'takif will remain in the masjid or on masjid
property until the sighting of the moon for Eid. Please not that this year we will only
allow a limited number of people (20) for Itikaaf, so registration is necessary, and you
will be chosen on a rst come, rst serve basis. Sisters will not be allowed to participate
in Itikaf due to security concerns.

ITIKAF RULES

their Itikaf. Registration forms will be available from the front o!ce.
