Reading Surah Faatiha as a dua during haidh

Q: My wife started an amal quoted in Fazaail-e-Aamal in which she was supposed to recite Surah Faatiha a particular number of times between the sunnat and Farz of Fajr Salaah consecutively for 7 days starting from the first Sunday of the lunar month. After starting the amal for 3 days she started menstruating. What should be done now as her regular menstruating time is around the first Sunday of the lunar month?

A: If it is read as a dua then it is permissible to continue.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
