If the one observing I`tikaaf leaves the Masjid for a certain reason

Question: If the one observing I`tikaaf (seclusion for worship in a Masjid) leaves the Masjid (mosque) for a certain reason, such as going home to wake his family up for Suhoor (pre-dawn meal before the Fast) because there is no one at home to do so, does this violate the conditions of I`tikaaf ?

Answer: Whoever enters I`tikaaf should not go out unless there is a need to conduct his necessary requirements such as fetching food and drink if there is no one to do so, or to relieve oneself if there is no toilet annexed to the Masjid. He may leave the Masjid during the time of Suhoor to wake up his family to prepare Suhoor meal and to be ready for Fajr (Dawn) Prayer if they cannot wake up on their own or if there is no one else to do so… read more here.
