Assalamo Alaikum I am a student of CA Final. My exams will be held in December. I want to observe aitikaaf in the month of Ramadan. However leaving studies for ten days will hamper my preparation. Is studying for exams allowed during aitikaaf?
Yes! Although there is no harm in continuing studies while remaining in I’thikaf alongwith taking care of other good A’mal e Saliha, it is necessary to avoid doing so in a situation where there is fear of disrespect to the Masjid such as having animated objects in the connected studying material.
