Retreat - 'Itikaf

In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate
The Messenger of Allah, praise and peace be upon him, would go into seclusion for (the last) ten days during the month of Ramadan, but the year in which he passed away he went into seclusion for twenty days.
[Bukhari]

Narrated 'Aisha: "Allah's Apostle used to practice `Itikaf in the last ten nights of Ramadan and used to say, 'Look for the Night of Qadr in the last ten nights of the month of Ramadan'".
[Bukhari]

Narrated 'Aisha (r) (the Mother of the Believers):" Allah's Apostle used to let his head in (the house) while he was in the mosque and I would comb and oil his hair. When in `Itikaf he used not to enter the house except for a need."
[Bukhari]
