Q. Explain the difference between Fardh, Sunnah and Nafl I’tikaaf.
A. There is no such thing as Fardh I’tikaaf. If a person takes an oath to perform I’tikaaf, then it becomes Waajib. The I’tikaaf of the last ten days of Ramadan is Sunnah and performing I’tikaaf whenever one wishes to is Nafl.

Q. Do the rulings of Sunnah mu’akkadah I’tikaaf also apply to one performing Mustahab (Nafl) I’tikaaf?
A. The rulings of Sunnah mu’akkadah do apply in Nafl I’tikaaf. However, in a Nafl I’tikaaf fasting is not a prerequisite. As for Sunnah mu’aakadah I’tikaaf, it only takes place during the last ten days of Ramadhan and fasting is a prerequisite. Secondly, in Nafl I’tikaaf, if one leaves the masjid without a valid reason his I’tikaaf period will automatically end and it won’t break. However, the Sunnah I’tikaaf will break.

Q. If a mu’takif mistakenly leaves the masjid what will the ruling be?
A. His I’tikaaf will be nullified.

Q: A lady who has her authentic Sayyid tree (descendants of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), had accepted Zakaat and long used it already. At the time she was not aware that she could not accept Zakaat. How does she make amends?

A:
It is safest that she give out whatever she received as Zakaat in charity to the poor and needy Zakaat recipients.

Q: A person passed away 6 months ago and was buried after 3 months by the state as a pauper along with 2 non Muslims in a cemetery. The family only found out now and have obtained permission from the state to exhume the body.
1. Can ghusl be done now?
2. Can janazah salaah be performed?

A:
If a person was buried without ghusal and Janaazah Salaah then the Janaazah Salaah will be performed at his grave provided the body has not decomposed. If after performing the Janaazah Salaah and burying the deceased it was discovered that ghusal was not given to him, then the Janaazah Salaah will have to be repeated at the grave provided the body has not decomposed.

Note: The time it takes for the body to decompose will be determined through the nature of the soil of the area in which the deceased was buried. This will differ from place to place. Hence, it is not possible to specify any period of time. This is the most preferred opinion among the Fuqaha. (Ad Durrul Mukhtar 2:224)
