How To Worship in Ramadan During Menstruation?

We know that the very purpose of man’s existence in this dunya is to worship Allah (swt). But many misunderstood the meaning of worship. Many think that worshiping Allah (swt) is limited to praying 5 times a day, charity, going to masjid and reading Qur’an. But, worship is not limited to those. Our daily routines such as eating, sleeping, walking, drinking can be a form of worship if done with the intention of submitting to Allah (swt.) So, if one eats healthy food and exercises everyday with an intention of getting fit to worship Allah (swt) more then those are considered worship. If one does halal job with an intention which is to provide to his family then that is a form of worship. Anything that we do can be a form of worship if we do it for the sake of Allah (swt). By living this way, one can greatly avoid doing things that would not please Allah (swt) and do only things that would please Allah (swt).

The Prophet (saw) said: “You will never spend anything that you spend for the sake of Allah, but you will be rewarded for it, even the morsel of food that you put in your wife’s mouth.” [Bukhari]

How to worship Allah in Ramadan during menstruation?

Many women feel that menstruation is a burden or a form of punishment because they can’t exert much effort in worshiping Allah (swt) in Ramadan during their menses. Those who think this way are severely mistaken. Allah (swt) has commanded menstruating women to refrain from fasting thus if the menstruating women obeys this command with the intention of submission to the order of Allah (swt) then that is already a form of worship (ibaadah.) Worship is not limited to prayer and fasting. There are many forms of worship that menstruating women can do during their menses that are just as best as praying and fasting for them.

Here are the things menstruating women can do during Ramadan:

  1. Make a lot of duas (supplication)
  2. Visit relatives or friends
  3. Make much repentance
  4. Make a lot of dhikr (remembrance of Allah)
  5. Give dawah to others
  6. Visit the sick
  7. Listen Qur’an frequently.
  8. Send Blessings on the Prophet (saw)
  9. Study or watch videos about the tafseer of the Qur’an
  10. Be kind to others, including family, spouses, friends
  11. Give generously in charity
  12. Make much repentance
  13. Make du’a for the ummah
  14. Practice the sunnah
  15. Feed fasting people
  16. Be kind to others
  17. Show Allah goodness

During the month of Ramadan, we should strive to renew our intentions and to change ourselves sincerely for the sake of Allah (swt). May Allah (swt) allow us to succeed in the month of Ramadan.

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
