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.

In these matters it is crucial to refer back to your Marja' taqleed, for the specific ruling, but from the view of A. U. Seyid Sistani, if you were confident you did not have to redo those days as qadha', you do not need to pay kaffarah, but you do need to redo those days as qadha`.

In the case of haydh, the maximum number of days that you do not pray/fast would be 10 days, depending on the circumstances you are in. 

If your blood is continous, then you will need to find out where during this period is your haydh days, and the rest being istihadhah. With the istihadhah days, depending on how much blood there is, you will still be able to pray and fast. 

Please familiarise yourself with the rulings of haydh/istihadhah, and below is a presentation that could help you towards this, in shaa Allah:

The reward of the believers who do good does not depend on the quantity but the quality of worship. Quality of worship depends on the degree of sincerity and dedication to Allah (SWT). Woman during menstruation gets reward for every good deed she does and gets also compensation for the suffering of menstruation. That will make her reward not less that the reward of pious men who do good. There is no question of any discrimination between man and woman in front of Allah (SWT) who created both of them and granted them equal chances and help to do good.

It is recommended for the women during her menstruation period to perform Wudhu in the time of Prayers and wear her prayers dress and sit on her place of prayers and be busy in remembering Allah for time like her prayer time. This Wudhu break like any other Wudhu although such Wudhu does not allow her to perform Namaz because of her menstruation.

The 'iddah period for an Islamic divorce is 3 menstrual cycles, or 3 months if a woman is within the age of menstrual cycle but does not menstruate, or delivery of a child if she is pregnant. 

The 'iddah takes effect and commences when the shar'i divorce is conducted. If the court divorce is also an Islamic shar'i court, then it would have that effect as well.

However, if it is a civil/legal divorce, and not a shar'i divorce, she is still Islamically married to her husband and they must initiate procedure of Islamic divorce for her to commence her 'iddah

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 after if you wish to pray. If your marja states ghusl al hayd gives wudu or ghusl al juma' then you may follow this.  
 

May Allah grant you success

Although there are certain things haram for a woman to do while she is in her menstrual cycle, like pray or recite certain parts of the Quran, but it is still permissible, or rather recommended for her to do worship. 

It is mustahab at times of salat for her to sit at her prayer mat and do dhikr, or recite dua, etc. 

It is also permissible for her to perform sajdah, like sajdah shukr. 

And Allah knows best.

Allah (SWT) Has kept every Infallible totally pure, and kept any type of impurity far away from them, not that Allah has removed impurity from them, but kept them far away from any impurity i.e. Allah did not allow any impurity whatsoever to come near any Infallible. Quranic verse 33:33 stated: In fact, Allah wants to keep impurity away from you O, Ahlul Bayt إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت 

There is a big difference between ليذهب عنكم to drive away any impurity from coming near you, and ليذهب منكم which means to drive away impurity from you which can mean driving away any existing impurity. Allah (SWT) never said that, but He said ليذهب عنكم which means that Ahlul Bayt never had any impurity, and Allah kept impurity far away from coming near them.

All the existence of the Infallible is absolute pure in the highest level which can never be compared with ordinary pious people.

These facts are very clear in Quran and the authentic Hadeeths. After believing in these facts, we do not need to go into details of the personal life of the Infallible, which are not necessary for us as it has nothing to do with our faith and practice and our responsibility to be sincere and humble servants of Allah and obedient followers of the Prophet (SWT) and Ahlul Bayt(AS).

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
