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.

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.

Yes, she has to perform Qadha for Morning Prayer which she missed after being clear from the menstruation. She should have performed Tayammum and prayed on the time of Morning Prayer if Ghusl was not possible.

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.

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

There are some Ahkaam in religion that have no justification except "obedience" and this matter is among them.
If one is obedient to God, he/she should say ok my Lord.
Some have tried to raise some justifications that I think none of them are true and we can't accept them as a reason behind this legislation.
