Taking a shower while in i'tikaaf


1. If a person in i'tikaaf leaves the masjid to go to the toilet, and at the same time has a shower, will his i'tikaaf break?

2. What if he has a long shower, will this matter?

3. If he goes to the shop to buy something after going to the toilet, would this break his i'tikaaf?


1. No.

2. Why make it matter, have a short shower.

3. Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
