Annual Collective I`tikaf by Minhaj-ul-Quran International

The I`tikaf is the annual ten day seclusion which takes place in the last ten days of the Holy Month of Ramadhan. This practice is optional for Muslims and can be performed alone or collectively. It is an advance form of self purification and spiritual uplift which takes the performer into a domain which is not in the scope of fasting which is a lower form of this spiritual venture.

Collective I`tikaf is performed all over the world with the most famous venues being the Masjid al-Haram in Makkah and Masjid Nabavi in Madinah. The collective I`tikaf is the Sunnah of the Prophet (SAW) and holds higher reward and benefit.

The collective I`tikaf performed by the Holy Prophet SAW in Masjid Nabavi with the Sahabah was a unique spiritual training camp which consisted of the Holy prophet (SAW) lecturing, teaching and practically training the Sahabah with special regards to gaining a high spiritual status.

The Collective I`tikafs present in the world today, are only considered to be collective due to the large numbers of people performing the practice at one venue. They do not possess the attributes of the collective I`tikaf which was performed by the Holy Prophet (SAW).

The annual collective I`tikaf organised by Minhaj-ul-Quran International in Lahore is based upon the collective I`tikaf model of the time of Holy prophet (SAW). The ten day I`tikaf is organised as a spiritual training camp with the main features of the I`tikaf being the lectures and sittings of Shaykh-ul-Islam Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. Together with the practical methods of advancing ones spiritual status through various sequences of the remembrance of Allah which those in the I`tikaf adhere to under the guidance of Shaykh-ul-Islam.

Thousands of men and women take part in the MQI collective I`tikaf every year who travel from the lengths and breadths of Pakistan with scores making a special journey from around the globe.

Having the opportunity to perform the collective I`tikaf in the company and spiritual guidance of one of the greatest Sufis and Shaykhs alive is a privilege which attracts drove upon drove of worshippers.

The collective I`tikaf is used by MQI as a training camp to spiritually charge individuals to prepare them to carry out the Islamic propagational work of MQI.


Shaykhul-Islam is the spiritual guide of those in the collective Itikaf


Seclusion for the sake of Allah can only be perfect
in the presence of one of his true lovers


How fortune are those to whom the WELL of wisdom and
spiritualism personally serves fluid for the soul


Group study circles recitations & zikr gatherings take place
in a structured and organized manner in the ITIKAF CITY


Preparations for the MUTAKIFEEN are all arranged
by the organizers who leave nothing to chance


The Collective Salt-ut-Tasbeeh is a source of purgation for the spirit


Special and Separate Itikaf arrangements are made for the females


Words cannot describe the spiritual atmosphere created
by mere presence of Shaykh-ul-Islam
