Women during Ramadan: Menses

I was wondering, being that we are in the midst of Ramadan and trying to increase our ajr through increased worship...women during Ramadan: Menses

-on Fridays, what should a woman do about the recitaion of Surah Kahf?

-Being that it is recommended to finish the Quran during Ramadan, can a woman continue her reading (although without holding the mushaf, by just reading the arabic script in the english translation)?

-When reciting duas found in the Quran (but not actually reading fromthe mushaf), should one alter the words when in a state of menses so as to not be reciting word for word from the Qur'an?

Sorry for ALL the questions but we hope they will help better our worship!

Re: Women during Ramadan: Menses

Assalamu Alaikum.

For this issue it would be useful to buy Islamic Rules on Menstruation and Post-Natal Bleeding by Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips . . . But Insha-Allah the following narration should help:

Ibn Abbas quoted Abu Sufyan as saying: "Heraclius (who was a non-Muslim) asked for the letter from the Prophet (peace be upon him) and read it. It begin, 'In the Name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Most Merciful. Oh people of the scripture, let us come to a common principle between us, that we do not worship anyone (or anything) besides Allah.'"(Surah Al-Imran, 3:64) Sahih Al-Bukhari, vol. 1, p. 182, chapter 9, as stated in Islamic Rules on Menstruation and Post-Natal Bleeding by Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips.

Imam Al-Bukhari mentioned this incident to prove that since the Messenger of Allah sent messages to the pagans and disbelievers, who were in a state of defilement, then the menstruating woman can also read definitely . . .

And Allah knows best.

Wassalamu Alaikum.
It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: "The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, 'Whatever I have commanded you, do it, and whatever I have forbidden you, refrain from it.'" (Sunan Ibn Majah *, vol. 1, Chapter 1, p. 73, Hadith number 1; Classed as Sahih by Hafiz Abu Tahir Zubair Ali Za'i and Sheikh Al-Albani)

* Darussalam Publishers (5 volumes, 2007), translated by Nasiruddin Khattab.

Look at how Imam Ibn Majah started his Sunan; he has shown great respect to the commands of the Prophet (peace be upon him) . . .
