In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.
I’tikaaf should be performed on the last 10 days of Ramadan. A room of the house should be specified for I’tikaaf. You cannot leave that room except for relieving yourself. If there is someone to cook and bring food for you, you cannot leave that room for cooking. If there is nobody, you may leave the room for cooking, but no time should be wasted and you should return to your room immediately. You may not leave that room to refresh your wudhu, if you already have one.
And Allah knows best
