Dhikr (also Zikr, Zekr, Zikir, Jikir, and variants; Arabic: ذِكْر, romanized: ḏikr) are devotional acts, primarily in Sufi Islam, in which short phrases or prayers are repeatedly recited silently within the mind or aloud. It can be counted on a set of prayer beads (Misbaha مِسْبَحَة) or through fingers of the hand.
Yes of course. Acceptance of every worship depends on the sincerity in the intention.
Menstruating female is allowed to perform all worship e.g. Thikr of Allah, Du'a, reading Quran (except the four verses of obligatory Sojood). She is not allowed to pray any Salah nor perform Tawaf around Ka'ba nor stay in Masjid.
It is Not necessary in Du'a and Dhikr to apply Tajweed rules, but we must recite Quran properly during Salah according to reading rules.
No, you do not need to be in hijab to recite Quran, dua or dhikr. It is a wonderful thing that you continuously remember Allah ta'ala, in any state and every state.
And Allah knows best.
No need for female to wear Hijab to do Dhikr or Du'a. Dhikr and Du'a can be done in any situation and any where.
In fact, it is a very good thing. Although you might think that you are distracted, or your mind is somewhere else, but getting used to remembering Almighty God frequently is a wonderful quality.
It will minimise the chance of committing sin, and also keeping you vigilant and alert. Gradually, while multi-tasking, you will be able to master your concentration, and it will all have positive impact as well.
With prayers for your success.
When the authentic teaching from the Prophet (SAWA) or Ahlul Bayt (AS) tells us to repeat reciting something, it means that we need to keep on focusing and concentrating on the meanings of it again and again because it will elevate our spiritual benefits as well as increase our reward and blessings. All the teachings of Islam are based on our benefit. Similarly, repeating certain Dhikr or Du'a is for the same aim of benefiting us through repeating which makes us concentrate more on the great meanings of what we recite.

there are ahadith stating that the prayer for the one who have consumed wine will not be accepted for forty days. There is no mention in those ahadith that his dhikr or du'a won't be accepted and actually it is said that such practices can accompany Muslims in all circumstances of life.
In the mentioned case, the person should also not forget to do istighfar and ask forgiveness for the sin that he committed. If he sincerely repents and has resolution of not committing the sin anymore, Allah is certainly All-Forgiving.
With prayers for your success.
Yes, it is highly recommended to be busy after performing Fajr Prayer till sunrise in Du'a, Quran, Dhikr etc. Sleeping between Fajr and sunrise is Makrouh (disliked) which means it is harmful, but it is not Haraam.
Thank you for your question. It is alright to sleep straight after fajr prayer. It is recommended to stay awake until sunrise reciting the Qur'an or making dhikr.
May you always be successful
It is recommended to say Subhanallah one time or more before Dhikr of Rokoo' and Dhikr of Sojood. If you say Subhanallah three times, it will be like saying Dhikr of Rokoo' or Sojood one time. Repeating Dhikr is recommended either three times or five or seven or nine or more odds.
Yes, actually it is mustahabb to do wudu and recite du'a at prayer times.
However you will not technically be in a state of wudu until after the monthly cycle has passed and you have done ghusl, it is just for spiritual/physical cleansing.
However you should not recite the ayat for which sadjah is mandatory and it is said that one should be in a state of purification to recite Du'a al-Mashlool (which you probably aren't reciting before sleeping anyway!).
It is useful to do so to ease ourselves from the responsibilities which we have for others who were been wronged by us. It is mentioned in Hadeeths that if you can not gain the pardon of people whom you have wronged, then pray for them and seek forgiveness for them and gift them the reward of good deeds.
But this is not Radd-e-Mazalim, as Radd-e-Mazalim is an estimated amount paid on behalf of people who have rights on us and the amount must be given to the poor people.
