Benefit: What Is the Meaning of Iʿtikāf?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz: It is to focus on worshipping Allāh and isolate oneself, this is the legislated isolation. Others have defined iʿtikāf to be cutting off relations with all creations to service the creator.

Shaykh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ al-ʿUthaymīn: al-Iʿtikāf is to abide in a mosque in obedience to Allāh and to get away from the people so that one may focus on being obedient to Allāh.
