What can't I do when I'm on my period? I feel distant from Allah during this time because I feel like I don't have to do anything

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,

You can do the following acts in shaa Allah

Listen to Quran Recitation:
Listening to recitation is the perfume of the souls, the calmer of hearts, and the food of the spirit. Is is one of the most important psychological medicines. It is a source of pleasure, even to some animals – and pleasure in moderation purifies inner energy, enhances the functioning of the faculties, slows down senile decay by driving out its diseases, improves the complexion, and refreshes the entire body. Pleasure in excess, on the other hand, makes the illnesses of the body grow worse.

Abu Nu’aim states, in his Tib an-Nabbi, that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said that the benefits of listening to recitation are increased when it is understood – that is, when its meaning is understood. 

Allah Himself says:…so give good news to My slaves, those who listen to the word and then follow the best of it(Qur’an: 39.17-18) 

Source: As-Suyuti’s Medicine of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

 Dhikr of Allah: 

A women on her periods can do excessive dhikr night and day. We will all have utter regret for each second wasted without remembering Allah:

Mu`adh Ibn Jabal (RA) said that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: ”The People of Paradise will not regret anything except one thing alone: the hour that passed them by in which they made no remembrance of Allah.” Narrated Bayhaqi in Shu`ab al-iman (1:392 #512-513)

The highest rank in Jannah are for those who remembered Allah the most:

Abu Sa`id (RA) narrates the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was asked, ”Which of the servants of Allah is best in rank before Allah on the Day of resurrection?” He said: ”The ones who remember him much.”I said: ”O Messenger of Allah, what about the fighter in the way of Allah?” He answered: ”Even if he strikes the unbelievers and mushrikin with his sword until it broke, and becomes red with their blood, truly those who do Dhikr are better than him in rank.” (Ahmad, Tirmidhi, & Bayhaqi)

Therefore we should remember Allah as much as we can & glorify him night & day until our very last breath. So we should set ourselves daily targets of doing as much Dhikr as we can. We can remember & glorify Allah whatever we are doing throughout the day. At work, whilst cooking, shopping & even whilst relaxing. We should remember Allah in our heart’s & not just by our tongues. We should also contemplate over his magnificence & his creations & imagine him in front of us as we glorify & remember him. 

The following are 10 Dhikr, supported by Hadith that one can recite throughout the day & night until our last breath: 


1. Asthaghfirullah

2. Subhaanallah

3. Alhamdulillah

4. Allahu Akbar

5. Laa ilaaha illallah

6. LA HAWLA WA LA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH-HIL ALIYYIL ADHEEM

7. Asthaghfirullah-halladhee Laa ilaaha illa-huwal Hayyul Qayyuumu Wa athoobu Ilay

Or Asthaghfirullah

8. SUB-HAAN’ALLAAHi WA BI-HAM’DIHI SUB-HAAN’ALLAH-IL ADHEEM 

Or SUB-HAAN’ALLAAHi WA BI-HAM’DIHI

9. Subhāna-llāhi, wa-l-hamdu li-llāhi, wa lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa-llāhu akbar. Wa lā hawla wa lā quwwata illā bi-llāhi-l-aliyyi-l-azīm

10. Lā ilāha illā-llāhu waḥdahu lā sharīka lahu lahu-l-mulku wa lahu-l-ḥamdu yuhyi wa yumītu wa huwa ḥayyu-llā yamūtu abadan abada, ḏū-l-jalāli wa-l-ikrām, biyadihi-l-khayr, wa huwa alā kulli Shay-in qadīr

Or

Laa ilaaha illal-laahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa huwa ‘alaa kulli shay-in qadeer

We should also recite much of durood e Ibrahim which is the durood that is recited towards the end of Salaah. 

Or the shortest durood is: Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim

 Dua & Repentance

A women in her periods can make excessive Dua to Allah night and day. 

Almighty Allah says in the Qur’an: "When my servants ask you concerning me, (tell them) I am indeed close (to them). I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calls on me." [2:186] 

The place of Dua is so high in front of Allah, that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallim) has said: ”Nothing is more honourable to Allah the Most High than Dua.”[Sahih al-Jami` no.5268]. 

Allah loves repentance & loves those who turn to him in sincere repentance: 

Truly Allah loves those who turn [to Him] in repentance… (Qur’an 2:222)

Many of us rush our Dua’s & quite often our hearts are not present whilst we are making dua to Allah. That is why we lose out on much of the benefits & blessings of Dua. Therefore we should not let our minds wonder whilst in Dua & we should concentrate more, making sure our hearts are present whilst asking of Allah. Whilst we are in dua we should imagine Almighty Allah in front of us & so we should humble ourselves in front of him in a state of meekness & humility. 

Narrated ‘Ubaadah that the Messenger of Allah said, “Whoever seeks forgiveness for the believing men and believing women, Allah will write for him a good deed for EACH believing man and believing woman.” (Tabarrani) 

Subhanallah this deed can be done in EVERY dua and can you imagine how many rewards can be gained for each and every Muslim you make dua for from Adam alayhis ‘salam until now and the last Muslim on earth. This is the easiest way to earn rewards that go into the billions and the more you make these dua’s then the more your good deed account wil get filled!

I hope it will be helpful. May Allah guide us all to the straight path.

Ameen

How do I deal with not feeling real, as if I'm ina dream. It's a scary feeling and I feel like I'm observing everyone live and talk and I'm stuck in my bubble of fear :/

Sounds like you’re experiencing a little Zen Sickness. You’re probably caught in a belief trap, but that’s okay! Beliefs are just emotionally charged thoughts. They’re easy to get rid of once you see them as that.

I have written about what you’re going through quite a bit to other people that have experienced very similar things. You can go through those posts and then, if you have any questions, I’ll help you out.

You can email me at nobodysnotes@gmail.com if you like. Check out these posts:

You know you’ve been watching too many X-Files episodes when you start to think that S1 Scully had great clothes…And yes I’m talking about the high-waisted pants, shoulder pads and just over all having a suit a couple sizes too big. I think I need to take a break from the show. (Ah who am I kidding I cant :P)
Anybody else think this too? When do you guys know you’ve watched the show too much (or any show for that matter)?

We are so not getting an Emerald remake and it makes me so sad because Emerald is my favorite handheld game and Rayquaza is one of my favorite Pokémon. :'(

Emerald is my favorite handheld game too, but Rayquaza will be included in ORAS. It was confirmed. So we Gucci.

What Akatsuki's members would have made of their lives if they weren't ninja?

Deidara: He would work as a pyrotechnician and perhaps even sculpt during his free time. He would love working with fireworks, seeing them as a beautiful for of art that pretty much everyone seems to love.

Sasori: He would work as a puppeteer, for entertainment usage rather than fighting. He would also create puppets and sell them to the public.

Itachi: He would grow up to become the heir of the Uchiha, leading the clan and keeping them safe. A high chance that the Uchiha massacre could have never happened (a small possibility it could happen without Itachi’s doing if the Uchiha continued with their plans before Itachi became in charge).

Kisame: He would have never lived through all those lies, and he would most likely have a better life and a better peace of mind. He would spend his days relaxing, maybe even babysitting the Hozuki kids.

Hidan: He most likely would’ve stayed in his village if he never became a ninja. He just would’ve been a normal, laid back resident of his village.

Kakuzu: He would be a wealthy individual in his village, with a small family of his own. He continues to be greedy, though. Nothing could change his money obsession.

Pein: The concept of Pein may not exist. Nagato and Yahiko would still be alive. The Amegakure Orphans would stick together, surviving with each other’s help. They would overall have a better life and would have never gone through such a traumatic experience. The Akatsuki would have never been formed.

Konan: She would continue living her life as an orphan with Nagato and Yahiko, still surviving on their own. They stick together, though. She could have possibly taught her origami technique to others, and may become a teacher for it. The Akatsuki would never have been formed.

Tobi: He would remain in the leaf village, living a normal and simple life. Basically, 90% of the stuff that happened in Naruto wouldn’t have happened. The Akatsuki would never have been formed.

Zetsu: He would continue on just being a servant to Madara, not really doing anything else. Eventually, after Madara’s death, he would be alone.

I don't mean to be rude or pushy or anything, this is a genuine question, but how come this blog has been updating so slowly lately? I submitted something more than a week ago, I think, and it still hasn't been posted. Usually the wait time is pretty short. Has something happened or is everyone just busy? Thanks in advance.

A lot of the members of the blog are currently quite busy, a few of us are on semi or unidentified hiatuses, and it’s quite hard to take care of it all, along with school, friends, family, studying, and our own blogs. We’re almost always trying to get it back on track, but for now it’s going to be slow. It’s no problem, but we’d appreciate a little slack on the area as we’re all quite busy with our lives.

When I told my therapist about my ED, she said it was normal and that she wished she had one

Hi my dear, 

I think this is a confession, but I wanted to reply to it now. You need a new therapist. That is absolutely disgusting that she said that to you and honestly you should report her. Part of being a qualified therapist is adhering to ethical standards and I think that would be breaking them. 

You need a therapist that will listen to you and actually help you, not wish she had an eating disorder herself. 

Please get some better help for yourself! You deserve the best <3
