Bandipora, Apr 03 : Amidst the holy month of Ramadan, approximately 1000 devout Muslims are participating in Itikaaf at the renowned seminary, Darul Uloom Raheemiya, Bandipora, dedicating themselves to spiritual reflection and worship.

Itikaaf is a spiritual practice observed by Muslims during the last ten days of Ramadan. Participants withdraw from worldly activities and distractions, focusing on worship, recitation of the Quran, and acts of remembrance and supplication to seek closeness to Allah.

The management at the seminary informed the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that around 1000 individuals, including both youth and elderly from various parts of the valley, are observing Itikaaf this Ramadan. Approximately 250 food plates (Traamis) are being served daily, covering both Sehri (pre-dawn meals) and Iftaar (breaking of fast).

In addition to those performing Itikaaf, a large number of locals join for prayers and a grand Iftaar on a daily basis.

It is worth mentioning that during last Ramadan, over 600 men observed Itikaaf at this Islamic seminary. Over the years, the seminary has become a popular destination for people from both the valley and outsiders—(KNO)
