Narrated: Amra bint Abdur Rahman
on the authority of Aisha: Allah's Messenger (SAW) mentioned that he would practice Itikaf in the last ten days of Ramadan. Aisha asked his permission perform Itikaf and he permitted her. Hafsa asked Aisha to take permission for her, and she did so. When Zainab bint Jahsh saw that, she ordered a tent to be pitched for her. Allah's Messenger (SAW) used to proceed to his tent after the salah (prayer). So, he saw the tents and asked, "What is this?" He was told that those were the tents of Aisha, Hafsa and Zainab. Allah's Messenger (SAW) said, "Is it Al-Birr (righteousness) which they intended by doing so? I am not going to perform Itikaf." So, he returned home, When the fasting month was over, he performed Itikaf for ten days in the month of Shawwal.
