Some things to do when you have your menstruation in Ramadan ♥
1) Cook Iftâr!
When you cook Iftâr and feed someone else when they were fasting, you get the reward of his/her fasting.
Zayd ibn Khaalid al-Juhani (r.a.) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h.) said:
“Whoever gives iftaar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the fasting person’s reward in the slightest.”
(Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 807; Ibn Maajah, 1746; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani inSaheeh al-Tirmidhi, 647.)
Perhaps you are not fasting, but you can still reap the rewards of your family and friend’s fast in shaa Allah ♥
2) Increase in charity
Remember, even a smile is charity. Help around the house, especially when your family (etc.) are too tired and hungry to do anything.
If one of your elders are fasting and cooking Iftâr, tell them to relax and that you will complete it. There is alot of Barakah in that!
3) Increase in Dhikr
Having your menstruation does not mean you can’t practice Dhikr. Whenever you see you’re not doing anything, or your family is praying, it is the perfect opportunity to do some Dhikr.
- When Fajr comes, make dhikr and get your daily reading in: This will also help you stay on track with being up early, while still being in a state of ibadah. Say SubhanAllah (33x), Alhamdulillah (33x), and Allahu Akbar (34x). After you finish making dhikr, take this time to read however much of the Qur'an you’ve allotted for yourself daily. (If you read 1 juz a day, you’ll be finished by the end of Ramadan ان شاء الله). Even make some general dua or ask Allah for that thing you’ve been wanting for a while now!
- When each prayer time comes, don’t just watch it past by, do dhikr:Okay so you can’t pray, I know it sucks, and it’s really easy to feel like if you’re not praying, you’re not doing anything. Instead do the same dhikr that was stated above for each prayer time. If you haven’t finished your daily reading, keep going until you finish!
