Most Muslims satisfy themselves with the outward form and practices religion offers. They know that submission to the rules – God’s commands and prohibitions – in the hope of being rewarded with the delights of Paradise, is enough to carry them through this earthly life and deliver them safely to the shores of the Hereafter.

While others will be busy in acts of worship such as fasting, praying, reading Qur’an etc., most women will spend a portion of Ramadan in the state of menstruation (or post natal bleeding), leaving them unable to participate in the aforementioned activities.

Here are a few practical suggestions of good deeds that a Muslimah can do while she is menstruating or has post-natal bleeding. Read More »
