Whoever has performed Iktikaaf with me should continue it. I have been shown the Night of 'Qadr', but have forgotten the date, but it is in the odd nights of the last 10 nights. I saw in my dream that I was prostrating in mud and water. In those days the roof of the mosque was made of branches of date palm trees. At the same time the sky was clear and no cloud visible, but suddenly a cloud came and it rained.The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) led us in the prayer and I saw the traces of mud on the forehead and the nose of Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). So it was the confirmation of that dream." (Bukhari 1:12:777)
