Does a woman have to be covered (like when shes praying) to say dua, dhikr, and repentance(tawba)? If the answer is yes then what if a woman is on her period? She still has to cover?

Thank you.

Dua and Dhikr can be done in any state: menses or no menses, covered or not covered.

الذين يذكرون الله قياما وقعودا وعلى جنوبهم

Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides

Quran 3:191

كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يذكر الله على كل أحيانه

The Prophet ﷺ used to remember Allah in all situations.

Sahih Muslim
