Answer

Answer:

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

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

As Muqallideen (those who follow a Mazhab), we follow the rulings and inferences of the Fuqahaa (jurists) who have deduced the juridical injunctions from the four main sources of the Shari’ah, viz. Qur’an, Hadeeth, Qiyaas and Ijmaa. Just as we do not question an expert in a certain field of study, similarly we do not question the rulings and injunctions of the Fuqahaa, who are the experts of Fiqh.

The Fuqaha (Jurists) of the Hanafi Mazhab (School of Thought) have mentioned that a woman should perform I’tikaaf in the Masjid of her home; this refers to a place which has been designated for Salaah within the confines of the home.

Hereunder are the texts and references of the Fuqahaa:

و للمرأة الاعتكاف في مسجد بيتها و هو محل عينته للصلوة ( نور الايضاح، ص 205، علمي ببليشرز)

قال ابو جعفر: و لا تعتكف المرأة الا في مسجد بيتها (شرح مختصر الطحاوي، ج 2، ص 472، البشائر و السراج)

المرأة تعتكف في مسجد بيتها اذا اعتكف في مسجد بيتها فتلمك البقعت في حقها كالمسجد الجماعة في حق الرجل لا تخرج منه الا لحاجة الناس ( الفتاوي الهندية، ج 1، ص 211)

و المراة تعتكف في مسجد بيتها (فتاوي العالمكيرية، ج 1، ص 211)

أو لبث امرأة في مسجد بيتها (الدر المختار، ج 2ن ص 441)

و للمرأة الاعتكاف في مسجد بيتها و هو محل عينته المرأة للصلوة فيه ( حاشية الطحطاوي، ص 699، قديمي)

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
