As for the recommended i’tikaf, it is not necessary to make it up if it gets cut off. If the person makes it up anyway, it would be optional and not obligatory and there will definitely be a reward for it.

As for the obligatory i’tikaf, when someone vows to spend a day of i’tikaf at the masjid, if he cuts it off on the day on which he vowed, or it was invalidated, then he must make it up.
