Menstruation

Menstruation, also known as a period or monthly, is the regular discharge of blood and mucosal tissue (known as menses) from the inner lining of the uterus through the vagina. The first period usually begins between twelve and fifteen years of age, a point in time known as menarche. However, periods may occasionally start as young as eight years old and still be considered normal.

The Quranic letters should not be touched by you nor touch your body during menses and when you have no Wudhu. Carrying it on pendant is permissible as far as it does not touch your body nor amount to any type of disrespect.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Being in a state of janabah or hayd doesn't make your hands najis. The only times you would spread najasa is when you touch blood or one of the najis substances with a wet hand or body part and then spread it. 
 

You can touch things with wet hands in either state and nothing would become najis. 
 

Only some ulema state that the sweat of someone who has committed zina is najis. 
 

May Allah grant you success

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Check in your Islamic laws book of your marja for details and conditions of when to perform this. It is like a normal  ghusl with a different intention. 
 

Wudu isn't needed after ghusl al janabah and you would automatically have wudu unless you break it during or after your ghusl. For other non-janabah ghusls wudu must be made before or after if you wish to pray. 
 

May Allah grant you success

If it happened within the ten days from the start of the menstruation (the maximum period of menses is ten days and the minimum is three days), then it is considered part of your menstruation and you need to perform Ghusl of Hayz after being sure that bleeding has completely stopped.

Yes. Reciting any dua and supplication is allowed during the period.
Keep in mind that touching the sacred names of Allah, the Holy Prophet, and the Imams peace be upon them is forbidden in the state of period.
Also if the Dua contains a verse of the Holy Quran, it's okay to recite them, but be careful not to touch those words.

Your prayer is valid and you do not need to pray again. Cleaning the area of the discharge is good but it is not a condition for validity of you Prayer. This is when the discharge is not blood. If it was blood which came out and made pats of your outer body Najis, then you need to wash and clean it.

Wassalam.

Bismillah

Thank you for your question. On the night of Decree God decrees the affairs of His creation for the next year. As such a female's menstrual cycle does not prevent her from benefiting from the blessings of that night. There are some acts of worship she cannot do, like praying a obligatory prayer. But there are many more acts that she can do like supplicating, remembering Allah, reading Qur'an and so on.

May you always be successful
