Ruling 1764

Performing an obligatory qaḍāʾ iʿtikāf is not an immediate obligation (al‐wājib al‐fawrī).13 However, making it up must not be delayed to such an extent that it would be regarded as being careless in accomplishing the obligation. And the recommended precaution is that it should be made up immediately.

13 This is an obligation that must be performed as soon as it is possible to do so, and delaying its performance is not permitted.
