Faithful start observing Aitekaf across country
ISLAMABAD (92 news) – Hundreds of thousands of faithful started observing Aitekaf across the country at mosques after Asar prayers from Tuesday (today).
Special arrangements have been made for Aitekaf at Masjid Al-Haram, Al-Masjid an-Nabawi and shrine of Ghaus Al-Azam Sheikh Abdul Jillani.
Aitekaf sitting is a Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) and carries a multitude of blessings of the Allah Almighty.
Men observe Aitkaf in small cubicles, set up by hanging large cloth sheets inside mosques, whereas women observe it at any corner or quite place in the house which is not frequently visited by others.
During this period, Motakfafeen will offer special prayers and seek Allah Almighty’s blessings and mercy.
