ARRANGEMENTS are being made at the Prophet’s Mosque (Masjid an-Nabi) in Madinah to accommodate 10,000 worshipers who intend to perform the ritual of I’tikaf (seclusion and staying in the mosque with the intention of worshiping) during the month of Ramadan.

This year in the holy month of Ramadan, which is due in mid-May, the Mu’takif (those observing Itikaf) will be allowed to do so only on the roof of the Prophet’s Mosque.

The ground floor of the masjid will be for prayer, according to a report in the Saudi Gazette.
