Honoring Allah’s SWT limits on us = reward!
Sisters should be reminded that when refraining from the things that Allah SWT has prohibited while in haidh(menses), is an act of worship in itself which is highly rewarded. It is, after all, an act of obedience to Allah SWT. Again, it is not the act of praying in itself that is good, but rather doing what pleases Allah. When Allah SWT says, “Pray!”, we pray, when Allah SWT says, “Don’t pray!”, We don’t pray. That is the essence of ubidiya (slavehood). Reflect on this and see how Merciful Allah SWT is in that time of the month when our energy is low, and our morale is weak. We will get rewarded like we would, if we prayed, but without having done anything, ..
✨1 Make Dhikr : Choose a secluded place if you are able. Sit facing the Qibla, keep the limbs still and the heart present, for the best remembrance is done with the heart and tongue together. There are many notable books of adhkar from the Prophetic Sunnah that one can use if they have yet to memorize it. We should try & aim to recite each of these 7 Dhikr a 100 times each which makes a total of 1000 a day minimum.
1.Asthaghfirullah 2.Subhaanallah 3.Alhamdulillah 4.Allahu Akbar 5.Laa ilaaha illallah
✨2. Say Du’a: At that time of the month, we often feel more emotional, sensitive, vulnerable and weak – this makes it one of the best times to make du’a! We often utter during our cycle that ‘we cannot pray,’ but this is far from the truth. ✨3. Perform Taubah/Istighfar: If the Prophet (saw) who was infallible and already promised Jannah, made ishighfar over seventy times a day, how many times should we do it? Use the extra time you have when not praying salat to make istighfar.
✨4. Study Books of Sacred Knowledge*: Books such as fiqh, spiritual rectification, tafsir, hadith, akhlaq, seerah, biographies of the Sahaba (RA), etc. Increasing in ilm is one of the greatest acts of worship that one can do. You will feel yourself drawing closer to Allah SWT as you learn about Him and His magnificent deen.
