Abu Sa’iyd Khudri Radiallahu anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallalahu Alayhi Wasalam once performed i’itikaaf for the first ten days of Ramadhaan. Thereafter, he made i’itikaaf in a Turkish tent (inside the Musjid) for the middle ten days. Thereafter, he raised his head out of the tent and said, “Verily, in search of Laylatul Qadr did I perform i’itikaaf for the first ten days, then for the middle ten days. Then someone (an angel) came and told me, ‘It is in the last ten days. Whosoever has made i’itikaaf with me should continue for the last ten days.’ I had been shown that night and then made to forget, which it how it shall be. I saw myself making sajda to Allah  with my forehead on mud the next morning. Look for Laylatul Qadr in the last ten nights of Ramadhaan; look for it among the odd nights.”

Abu Sa’iyd Radiallahu anhu says; “That same night it rained. The roof on the Musjid leaked. I looked at Rasulullah Sallalahu Alayhi Wasalam eyes and forehead and there were remains of water and mud. This was on the morning of the 21st after performing sujood in muddy clay”. (Reported in Mishkaat)

Rasullullah Sallalahu Alayhi Wasalam said, “The person performing I’itikaaf remains free from sins, and he is given the same reward as those who do good deeds in spite of not having done those deeds because of staying in the Musjid.”    (Mishkaat)

“...Whomsoever performs I’itikaaf for a day, thereby seeking the pleasure of Allah, Allah will open three trenches between him and the fire of hell, the width of each being the distance between heaven and earth”.   (Reported by ‘Tabraani in Al Awsa’t)
