These 5 prayers can be performed by menstruating women during Ramadan

ll Muslims, women and men, are encouraged to increase their worship during the month of Ramadan. But unfortunately, women who are menstruating are actually prevented from carrying out certain religious services.

Don't be sad, it turns out that the Hasyiyah al-Qulyubi book explains that women who are menstruating do not need to be afraid of losing the rewards from missed worship. Leaving worship during menstruation or postpartum is a form of obedience to Allah SWT, even for him there is a reward such as the obligation to pray when he is holy.

For a person who is always steadfast in carrying out his worship, when one day he is unable to carry out that worship, then he will be rewarded as is the reward for worship that is carried out every day, Rasulullah SAW said:

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: إِذَا مَرِضَ العَبْدُ، أَوْ سَافَرَ، كُتِبَ لَهُ مِثْلُ مَا كَانَ يَعْمَلُ مُقِيمًا صَحِيحًا

"If a worshiper falls ill or goes on a pilgrimage, he is still given the reward of worship as if he were healthy or as if he were not on a pilgrimage" (HR. Bukhari)

However, it is very unfortunate if menstruating women waste their time in the month of Ramadan. Then what kind of worship can you do during menstruation?

Building Sahur
First , wake up for sahur. Women who menstruate should increase their good deeds in the month of Ramadan, for example by waking up at dawn and preparing sahur meals for people who are fasting. Because even the smallest kindness will be worth worship.

Rasulullah SAW said "Every kindness is charity, and among the forms of kindness is that you meet your brother with a pleasant face, and you pour water from your bucket into your brother's vessel " (HR Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Hibban and Ahmad)

"If pouring water into someone else's vessel is considered goodness, what about preparing a sahur meal for someone who is fasting? Of course there will be more good things to come from."

As in the story of Anas Ra , "We used to travel with the Prophet SAW, some of us fasted and some of us didn't. Then on a very hot day we stopped at a place and the only people who could take shelter were those who had clothes, even among us there were people who took shelter from the sun only with their hands. So those who fasted fell. Then the people who were not fasting got up, set up tents and gave water to their riding animals. So the Messenger of Allah said, "Today those who break their fast (not fasting) have reaped the reward" (HR. Muslim).

Second, feed people who break their fast. Menstruating women can get rewards for fasting by feeding people who break their fast. As in the Hadith from Imam Tirmidhi:

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ فَطَّرَ صَائِمًا كَانَ لَهُ مِثْلُ أَجْرِهِ، غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ لَا يَنْقُصُ مِنْ أَجْرِ الصَّائِمِ شَيْئًا

asulullah SAW said, "Whoever feeds someone who is fasting, he will be rewarded like the person who fasted, without reducing the reward of the person who fasted in the slightest.

Listening to the reading of the Koran

"Third, listen to the reading of the Koran. Even though menstruating women are not allowed to read the Koran, they are still allowed to hear it. This ability is based on a hadith narrated by Ibn Majah. From Aisyah Ra she said "The Messenger of Allah put his head in my lap when I was menstruating and he read the Koran"

By continuing to listen to the Koran, his heart will always be connected to the words of Allah and will always receive grace. Allah SWT says:

وَإِذَا قُرِئَ الْقُرْآنُ فَاسْتَمِعُوا لَهُ وَأَنْصِتُوا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ

"And when you read the Koran, listen carefully and pay attention calmly so that you may receive mercy ." (QS. Al-A'raf: 204)

Fourth, give charity. In a Hadith the Prophet Muhammad SAW said:

عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ: سُئِلَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: أَيُّ الصَّوْمِ أَفْضَلُ بَعْدَ رَمَضَانَ؟ فَقَالَ: شَعْبَانُ لِتَعْظِيمِ رَمَضَانَ، قِيلَ: فَأَيُّ الصَّدَقَةِ أَفْضَلُ؟ قَالَ: صَدَقَةٌ فِي رَمَضَانَ

"From Anas, he said: Rasulullah SAW was asked, "Which fast is more important after Ramadan? Rasulullah SAW said (fasting in the month of) Sha'ban to glorify Ramadan, so what is the most important charity? Alms in the month of Ramadan" (HR. Tirmidhi)

The wisdom of fasting is that it is a reminder of the suffering of poor people . Therefore, Muslims should improve the quality of their alms this month.

Fifth , make dhikr. Menstruating women can still do dhikr. This ability is based on the hadith of the Prophet SAW:

“We were ordered to send out women who were confined to the house to come out on holidays, even women who were menstruating. They say takbir following the takbir of men, and pray after men, hoping for blessings and the sanctity of the holiday " (HR Bukhari Muslim).

Apart from making dhikr, the majority of ulama also allow menstruating women to recite wazifa. Thus, even though her menstrual period lasts a long time, she still remembers Allah SWT a lot. Don't forget to read bismillah and prayer in every activity.
