f:472 -    Itikaaf for women
Country : India,
Name : Kausar Khanam
Question:     In Ramadhan, men perform Itikaaf.  Can women also perform Itikaaf?
............................................................................
Answer:     It is Undesirable (Makruh) for a woman to perform Itikaaf in the mosque.  If she wants to perform Itikaaf, she can do so in that part of the house, where she offers her 5 daily Salaat.  If there is no such particular place, then she can take any place, clean it thoroughly and perform Itikaaf.  As given in Fatawa A’alamgiri, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 211.

And Allah Most High knows best.
