I am trying to turn off my wifi interface using the following ifconfig command:
ifconfig wlan0 down
My wifi disconnected for almost one second and then it comes back up again.
what is the problem and how I fix it ?

You most probably use network-manager, try
nmcli nm wifi off.
rfkillinstead? most likely networkmanager overrides your manual config.
