Reciting duas and making zikr during haidh

Q: What can a woman can recite during her periods? Can she recite qurani duas? Can she recite duas of prophet ( Sal-Allah ho Ali hay wasalam)? Can I recite la ill aha illa unta subhanaka innii kuntu minuzalemeen during periods? Is there any special permission required to do this dua as I recite it often without wadu (when I’m not in periods) and many times a day without counting. What can we recite when a girls head isn’t covered?



  1. Yes.
  2. Yes.
  3. She can make zikr and durood shareef etc.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
