Answer:  Yes, it is permissible to do so.

And Allah knows best.

Answer:  No, the Sadaqat will not be accepted and the Zakaat will not be considered as fulfilled and accepted.

In a tradition, the Prophet (SA) is reported to have said, ‘Allah does not accept Sadaqat which is from unlawful means.

And Allah knows best.

Answer:  1. She will make I’tikaaf in the place reserved for Salaah in the house. This will be like the Masjid for her. Her eating, drinking, etc. will take place here. If she exits from this place without a valid Shar’i reason, her I’tikaaf will break.

2. If a special place in the house was specified for Salaah, she will make I’tikaaf in that specified place only. If no place was specified from before, it will now be specified and I’tikaaf will be made in this place.

3. A married woman needs the permission of the husband to sit in I’tikaaf. He can refuse permission. However, once he has given permission, he cannot retract.

4. Once he has granted permission and she is sitting in I’tikaaf, sexual intercourse, romancing, kissing, etc. will not be permissible. If sexual intercourse took place, her I’tikaaf will break.

5. I’tikaaf cannot be made when in Haidh or Nifaas. If these take place during I’tikaaf, it will break. If Haidh or Nifaas took place during I’tikaaf, after becoming Paak, she will make Qadhaa of only the day on which the Haidh started.

The Qur’aan can be read in that manner.

He can listen to lectures on the phone.

He must not go out specially to smoke. If he does the itikaaf will break. He can smoke when he goes to toilet.

Answer:  Yes, it is permissible for ladies to perform the Janaza prayer behind the men ever if there is no wall between them. It must be noted however, that it has not been an established practice during the time of the Prophet (SAS) and during the generations of the Pious Predecessors that women will join the Janaza prayer with the men, nor was it encouraged. This is the practice which has come down to the latter generations from the time of the Prophet (SAS). Hence, we see that it is not emphasized that women should join the Janaza prayer nor are they called towards its performance. This is well accepted and practiced by the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah. However, if a woman wants to perform it behind the men then her Salaah will be valid.

With respect to a woman leading other ladies in the Janaza Salaah, this is Makrooh Tahreemi (reprehensible to a great extent) and should not be done. Such did not take place at the time of the Prophet (SAS) nor did he encourage it. It is for this reason, the Fuqaha (Jurist experts) have declared that the Imamat (leadership in Salaah) of a woman for other women is Makrooh Tahreemi whether it is Farz Salaah, nafl Salaah or any other type of Salaah. (Raddul Muhtar, Fatawa Alamgiri- Kitabul Fatawa vol.pgs.305, 306; Ahsanul Fatawa vol.3 pg. 313)

Answer:  Ghusl (bath) is compulsory when you have completed your menses. Whether it ends on the 7th, 8th, 9th or 10th day, it must be made when your menses come to a completion. In this case, when you are sure that your menses have ended, and you have taken a Ghusl, then you must begin to perform Salaah. If the menses continue for the full 10 days, then you will have to take a ghusl after the 10 days, and then begin the performance of Salaah.

And Allah knows best.

Answer:  It is not mentioned in Hadeeth.

The maximum for Nifaas is forty days and there is no minimum. When the Nifaas stops (on whichever day), she will take a bath and begin Salaah.

If the blood exceeds 40 days (in the case of the first baby), she will take a bath when the forty days end and begin Salaah.

It is a misconception that Salaah can only be started after forty days, although the blood stopped before that. When the blood stops, even if it is on the 5th, 10th or 15th day, Salaah immediately becomes compulsory.

Answer:  The obligatory Tawaf al-Ziyarah would be the main issue for a menstruating woman. If she is on her menses on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah to the time she has to travel, this would be a problem as she has to be in a state of purity to do the Tawaf.

No, we can’t say it’s preferred to avoid one’s menses in order to do more ‘ibadah; menses are a natural occurrence and avoiding what must be avoiding during menses is worship itself.

Answer:  A woman on her menses is prohibited from entering any masjid, this would include the Prophet’s Mosque, (peace and blessings of Allah upon him).

Answer:  Sunblock that has no scent/perfume is permissible.

BarakAllahu feek, please remember us in your duas during your blessed journey, may Allah ta’ala make it easy for you and blessed.
