Sisters who have their natural blood on these days should NOT give up!!
The woman in her menses in her last ten days of Ramadhan is still beneficial for her to get up in the last third of the night to make du'aa as she cannot make salaah, of course. It is beneficial to make du'aa in the third of the night and this is open for the one who is in a state of ritual purity or ritual impurity. So there is nothing wrong with that. And the woman in menses also could recite Qur’aan and could make remembrances. All of that, and we can refer you to the book, Natural Blood of Woman by our Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen رحمه الله.
If a sister on her menses during the last ten nights, is she allowed to do prayer on these nights?
No. She can do anything except the prayers and fasting. She can invoke Allaah (سُبحانه وتعالى). She can invoke Allaah with this du'aa. She can give charity. She can do all good actions of worship except for praying and fasting. And by the way, a comment on this answer, for all the sisters: a woman who gets her menses during this time – this is a matter prescribed by Allaah. They should NOT feel in anyway, saddened at all. Why should they feel sad? Even a little bit, when Allaah (سُبحانه وتعالى) prescribed this matter upon them? This is a very important matter. They shouldn’t have any kind of objection what so ever. They are NOT going to be deprived of anything that Allaah (سُبحانه وتعالى) bestowed of his favors because of this.
