Some advice for sisters

Some advice for sisters who are going through their menses at the moment and unable to enjoy the full ibadah in these last 10 days:

a. If you are truthful in your desire to have increased in your ibadah in these last ten days, then inshaAllah it will be written for you even if you are unable to do the acts of Ibadah due to your monthly periods – as this situation is by the qadr of Allah and not in your control.

b. As per the best opinion amongst the scholars, it is permissible to recite the Quran in a state of menstruation. This was the opinion of Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibnul Qayyim and others. However, the sister should avoid touching the Quran and read the Quran from a computer or phone in an electronic form.

c. Increase in those acts of Ibadah that can be done whilst you are not fasting – such as feeding other fasting people, feeding poor people,

d. Increase in the amount of adhkar, such as the akhkar of morning and night, the sunnah duas, the duas for repentance etc..

e. Involve yourself in dawah, for nothing is better than calling to the path of Allah. Raise some money for charity and help feed the poor and needy.


dhikr that is not that hard, insha'Allah
