In our family, when we have our monthly cycle, we actually feel very embarrassed and so we hide it. During prayer time we actually fake our prayers and just act of doing salah while we actually don't pray, we just fake our whole salah with ruku and shujud and everything else.
Is it a sin? Allah knows why we do that and so I'm actually confused if it's ok. From my childhood I have seen my mom and sisters never ever took any breaks from salah and so after I had my period started I felt ashamed of expressing that im having period and so I also started faking my salah during my period. We never talk about these at home even among our sisters and mom as if period is something really embarrassing thing to talk about!
Can you please give me some suggestion what to do? I feel like I should fake my salah just to hide my monthly cycle, but yet I cant make myself to break out of these embarrassing feelings!
