Assalam o Alaikum! I have a question to ask that can ladies, in their periods, recite the daily duas and darood shareef as they recite in the other days of month?For few months , I have developed a habbit to recite the small darood shareef more than one thousand times in the whole day.Furthermore I also try to read 100 times “HASBUNALLAHOO WA NEMAL WAKEEL”,some of ALLAH’S names and few other zikars like duas of morning and evening as prescribed by the Holy Prophet(P.B.U.H.) in daily routine.Can I continue the same practices in the days of menses or not?By reading these zikars I got satisfaction of mind and heart but during the days of menses I got depression while stoping these azkaar especially reading the Darood Shareef as even in my home,office and other places the words of Darood shareef are uttered very smoothly,easily and automatically.Does Shariah allow the menstruating woman to continue all this or not?I am praying to Allah to have relaxation for a woman in this matter. JazakaAllah.

It is forbidden to recite the holy Quran during the menstruation period while doing other zikrs and reciting durood are allowed. Therefore, you can continue your above mentioned practice during the menstruation period as well.
