Would you please enlighten me about the rules of 'Aitikaaf' for a woman. Whether she can do it in her house or she has to go to Masjid?

You may send the reply in Urdu.

Dear Brother in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

A woman can perform IĄ¯tikaaf at the place where she performs five times Salah or at any other specified place in her home provided that she has got her husbandĄ¯s consent for performing IĄ¯tikaaf and is not in the state of menstruation and Nifas. (Al-Fatawa Al-Hindiyyah: 1/211)

And Allah knows the best,
