For me and all my fellow sisters who feel distanced from Allah during their period. This is a list of things I want to implement into my life during that week. But first, download Quran Explorer on your phone/tablet.
Dua for Forgiveness | Rabbana zalamna anfusana wa in lam taghfirlana watar hamna lana koonanna minal khasireen [Surah Al-Araf, Verse 23] | Our Lord ! we have sinned against ourselves and unless You grant us forgiveness and bestow Your mercy upon us, we shall most certainly be lost.
Salutations to the Prophet SAW | Allaahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Muhammad kama salayta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed. Allaahumma baarik ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Muhammad kama baarakta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed | Allah and the angels send salutations to the Prophet SAW [Surah Al-Ahzaab, Verse 56]
Replace each of the five prayers with these rembrances.
And when you look for a spouse, do not look at their beauty and their money and their property. Rather look at their deen, and their character. A righteous man will not harm you because he fear his Lord and a righteous wife will not hurt you because she knows her Lord is watching her. Do not look at them as your lover but rather as the father/mother of your children - ask yourself whether or not they will be suitable enough for that position. And when you look for a spouse, remember Allah whilst doing so.
