Can a woman go to have a shower during her Ramadhan I’tikaf?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Can a woman doing itikaf at home go for a shower due to heat

during ramadhan itikaf? If she does, does her itikaf break?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If a person is observing sunnah I’tikaf, he/she cannot go out specifically for a shower. However, if she goes out to relieve herself and the shower is nearby, as in the case of an attached toilet and bathroom, she may take a quick shower with the intention of performing Wudhu.[1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
