Narrated/Authority of Aishah
"When the Prophet (saw) wanted to start Itikaf, he would pray the Subh, then he would enter the place where he wanted to observe Itikaf. He wanted to spend the last ten days of Ramadan in Itikaf, so he ordered that a tent be set up for him." Then Aishah ordered that a tent be set up for her, and Hafash ordered that a tent be set up for her. When Zainab saw their two tents, she also ordered that a tent be set up for her. When the Messenger of Allah (saw) saw that, he said: "It is righteousness that you seek?" Then he did not observe Itikaf during Ramadan, and he observed Itikaf during ten days of Shawwal. Hasan
