| Topic: Worship Plan for woman on Menses in Laylatul Qadr
Posted: 31 July 2013 at 9:12am
Worship routine for a woman on her Menses during the last 10 blessed Nights:
09:30 - 10:00 pm - Open fast with family with dates and water so as to fulfil the Sunnah and also feel the atmosphere and feeling of fasting
10:00 - 10:15 pm - Eat light in order to have optimum energy for worship. Avoid heavy and fried foods which will make one lethargic.
Bonus: The lighter the stomach the more worship. The more worship the more reward!
10:15 - 10:30 pm - Get ready and prepared. Make Ghusl, Wudu and wear ones best clothes. Sit I'tikaf at home.
Bonus 1: Looking ones best actually has a significant impact in making one more productive! These are the nights of maximum productivity! So look good to be more productive!
Bonus 2: According to many scholarly opinions including that of Hanafi Madhab. It is recommended for a woman to sit I'tikaf at a designated place in the depths of her home.
10:30 pm - 12:00 am - Put on Taraweeh prayer from Makkah or locality if they have radio transmission. This will enable one to get the feeling of Ramadan and at the same time listen to the Qur'an recitation. Also read the translation to go with it in order to understand what is being recited.
12:00 - 12:30 am - Drink water to hydrate. If one is hungry then eat (LIGHT) in order to prepare for worship for the rest of the Night. Do not partake in any idle talk. Go straight to the spot where there will be no disturbances at home and begin worship immediately. NO PROCRASTINATION during these blessed 10 nights!
Bonus: The less time we waste the more time we have for worship. The more time we have for worship the more we can gain unimaginable rewards during these blessed 10 nights! Other things can be done at anytime but not during these blessed few nights.
12:30 - 2:30 am - Ramadan is the month of the Qur'an and not being able to recite the Qur'an is no reason to feel down as you can read the tafseer (Meanings of the Qur'an) and contemplate and ponder over the words of Allah and gain the same rewards insha'Allah.
Bonus: In one of these nights was the auspicious night that the Noble Qur'an was revealed. So surely we should spend most of these nights reciting the Meanings of the Qur'an so that we may understand it and ponder and reflect over it.
2:00 - 2:30 am - Recite the Dua of Laylatul Qadr as much as possible for wiping out sins and make Dua of repentance to Allah, begging and crying unto him for mercy and forgiveness. (Allahumma Innaka Afuwun Thuhibbul Afwa Fa'fu Anna)
2:30 - 3:00 - Prepare Suhoor and eat (Light).
Bonus: Prepare Suhoor in the day and put it away in the fridge as nothing should get in the way of our worship during these blessed nights. Preparing Suhoor before hand leaves us with more time to worship. As I keep saying: The more time we have for worship the more unimaginable and incomprehensible rewards we can gain!
3:00 am - until Fajr begins Spend the last half an hour in Dua and beg and cry unto Allah, by praising and glorifying him using his beautiful names asking for his mercy, forgiveness and for our parents, families and ourselves. Ask for anything ones heart desires. Include Dua's for the Ummah. Surely Allah will accept each and every sincere Dua during these blessed 10 nights more so more than any night of the year on the Night of power!
Bonus: Make a Dua list and be sure to cover everything you can think of so that your mind does not go blank during making Dua on these blessed nights. So if we have made a Dua list before hand then we can make the best Dua which will cover everything and during these blessed nights Duas are readily accepted and if we catch the Night of power during these 10 nights then our Duas will be accepted without a doubt. Subhanallah!
Repeat this schedule for the remaining time in Menses and know that you do not have to worry about earning less rewards as you can earn the same if not more than those who are not on menses!
May Allah enable us to make the best of these nights and gain the rewards may he enable us to catch the blessed Night of Power and gain the rewards that are promised for it. Ameen
