Best amaals to do when in itikaaf


What is the best amaals to do when in itikaaf?


There is no specific amal for itikaf apart from fasting and being in Masjid. But one can make maximum usage of his time by reciting the Noble Qur’an, praying recommended salats, contemplating on the purpose of creation and reality of thus transient world, gaining knowledge by reading books and discussions.

Duas of Mafatih al Jinan and Sahifa al Sajjadiyah are also recommended.

The bottom line is that one shouldn’t waste time on thinking about the worldly matters as he has taken an exclusive time out for his Lord.
