Sayyidah Aysha (RA) related that the rules of Shari’ah for the Mu’takif (i.e. one who is in I’tikaf) are that he should neiter go out to visit the sick nor attend a funeral nor have intercourse nor engage in kissing and embracing not step out of the mosque for personal needs except those that are unavoidable (such as, answering the call of nature), and there can be no I’tikaf without fasting – and it must be carried out in Jami’ Masjid.
