Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Sumeyye Sofu


Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu.

In itikaf can we sleep on a bed (which is in itikaf room) on which we used to sleep on for many years?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


A woman should enter itikaf in her house, where she usually prays her prayers.[1]

If the bed is in itikaf room, then it will be permissible to sleep on it.

Only Allah knows best
