It is when a person schedules himself/herself in the masjid with the intention of worshipping Allah. It has specific restrictions and conditions and can only be performed by a rational and discerning Muslim, who is pure from janabah or menstruations, in that which requires washing. It is not valid for a non Muslim, or for a madman, or for a child, due to their lack of intention.
