700 faithful to observe Aitekaf at Faisal Masjid Islamabad

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Under the supervision of Dawah Academy of International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI), some 700 people would start observing Aitekaf at Faisal Mosque in Islamabad on Tuesday.

Earlier in May, Dawah Academy had sought applications for Aitekaf this year.

All applicants were asked to come with their luggage. They were given special identity cards and were shown the place set aside for them for Aitekaf.

In addition to lectures, arrangements for Qiyamul Layl had also been made BY IIUI, which other people can also attend.

Aitekaf is observed in the last 10 days of Ramadan where worshipers pray in secluded sections.
