Malikies use the narration of Aisha
|Imam Shafi||Itikaf is permitted without fasting||It was a mere coincidence and it doesn't mean that is was the aim of the prophet (SAW) in this itikaf.
He also argued based on the narration of Ibn Umar as the night is not the time for siyam.
Abu Umar said that 'No one has used the words "the sunnah" in the narration of Aisha except Abd Al Rahman and such a narration is not valid'
