Question

 I received the following as a broadcasted message, and would just like to know what is its authenticity:

Menstruation in Ramadan. It is related in a Hadith that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said if a woman reads (at her time of haidh – menstruation).

Subhanaka astaghfirullahal lathi la ilaha illa huwal hayyul qayyum

70 times at the time of every Salah or any other istighfar even if it be astagfirullah only, then she will get the reward of reading 1000 rak’ahs of Salah, 70 of her sins are forgiven, her status is raised in the eyes of Allah and for every letter of istighfar, she gets a nur and for every vein in the body, one hajj and umrah is written!”
