Allah can never be considered wrongly proud ...

Allah mentions I'tikaf being done in the masjids (2:187) and that's how the Prophet himself had done it. There's no Shari' evidence indicating that it can be done in the house, female or not. So, the proper way to do I'tikaf is to be in the masjid.

From all of the discussions I've had regarding prostration, I've concluded the following = There's no sufficient evidence from Quran and Sunnah explicitly saying prostration is an act of worship in of itself.
