Millions set to perform Itikaf from today

LAHORE - Millions of Muslims would be performing Itikaf from across the country today. All the major mosques have completed the registration process of the people who want to perform Itikaf .

All the major mosques of Lahore including Badshahi mosque, Data Darbar Mosque and Jamia Masjid Al-Qudsia have completed the registration of those who wanted to perform Itikaf .

Thousands of Muslims would be gathering for the performance of Itikaf in all major cities of Sindh including Karachi. Special security measures are ensured at all mosques in the metropolis to avoid any untoward incident.

Prayers for country’s sovereignty and stability, elimination of terrorism and prosperity of Muslim Ummah will also be offered.

Itikaf is a spiritual offering observed in the last ten days of Ramadan during which the believers detach themselves from other people and indulge solely in act of worshipping, avoiding worldly affairs. One can either offer Itikaf in mosques or at their own home but they have to stay at the same place throughout the observation.

The observers will spend most of their time reciting Quran, offering special prayers and seeking blessings from Allah during Itikaf .
